My people and I went to the Frederick County shelter in Maryland to meet some Huskies. First we met Storm. He is 18 months old. He has been adopted out from the shelter three times, and was returned for the third time on Friday. Each time, he was returned because he escaped from his yard. Even though the people at the shelter told them and told them that Huskies are escape artists, they didn't really understand until it happened. The shelter doesn't want to put Storm through being adopted and returned again, so they will only release him to a rescue. My mom sent emails and pictures of him to a lot of rescue groups. I hope that we end up going to get him out of there soon!
Next we met Sasha. She is 6 years old and very playful! She is housebroken and takes treats nicely. She was excited to meet me and really wanted to play. Her fur is very dry and looks bleached or sunburned. The people at the shelter think she was fed really poor quality food. Now it's coming in light brown around her face, I think that's her normal color. One person put in an adoption application for her.
Last we met Nanook. Mom said he's a mini Me. Can you see why? He is 6 or 7 months old. His previous owners turned him in because their community has a 20 pound weight limit for dogs, and he weighs more than 20 pounds now. He is pretty calm for a puppy.
He's a little timid at first, but very sweet. He climbed on my mom and gave her kisses. When I started talking he got excited and got playful.
Then we took a walk around the big lake and dad was taking pictures of birds with his new camera. We met a nice lady and her kids walking their new Pomeranian puppy. She was tiny, but she wanted to come say hi to me. So it was an exciting day! I'm going to go take a nap now.
