ATHENA's Story...
Athena's Story:

This beautiful young girl was a stray found in the neighborhood where one of our group members lives. Our volunteer made every effort to locate her family; however, no one appeared to be looking for her. We believe this to have worked out for the best, as she was very scared and timid, and instinctively ducks her head when you reach to pet her, as if you are going to harm her. It would seem that someone was not very nice to this sweet girl . . . She so craves attention but will initishy away from your hand, as if waiting for it to touch her in a way that will hurt or scare her.

Her Foster Mom Says:

We have taken her introduction to our household very slowly. Since she was so terribly afraid, we have not yet introduced her to our other pets. We wanted to give her some tome to adjust to the humans in the house before we threw in our own dogs! She is warming up beautifully and is starting to find her husky smile. She will now playfully bounce when she sees us, will lick us on the hand and is starting to learn that a hand offered is only there to love her and give her the affection she so craves. She visited Petco and was initially trembling, but over the course of her visit she relaxed visibly and soaked up the attention which was showered upon her. We're seeing her smile, and will be happy to see her carrying her beautiful tail high as she gains confidence. We will be slowly introducing her to our pack of five huskies this week, starting with our girl that usually gets along with everyone. We will also be introducing her to our 2.5 year old grandson so by the end of the week, we will know how she is with both dogs and kids. I will hopefully be able to take her to the house of a friend to test her with cats but the way she has gone after the geese in our neighborhood pond would lead me to believe that this girl is not going be cat friendly!!!

Updates: Check back soon for an update! She continues to emerge from her shell, and we are looking forward to seeing her blossom!

This dog's adoption donation is $200. If you know how much it costs to give a new dog responsible vet care, you can easily see that this is quite a bargain! She has had a complete health exam, has already been spayed, is microchipped, has tested negative for heartworm, has been kept on heartworm and flea preventative, is fully vaccinated and free of parasites.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ATHENA, a Various Locations Siberian Husky dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Siberian Husky for sale in Various Locations, or seeking a Siberian Husky dog from a breeder in Various Locations.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Various Locations already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Various Locations breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Siberian Husky breeders who help with Siberian Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Various Locations paves the way for another one to be saved.
