What brought me to this site? Well strap on for a ride, this'll be a story!
I am Elsa and I am from the countryside of Florida. I've had many dogs as companions during my lifetime, most of'em during my childhood / early years. Now that I am in a position again to be able to care for a doggo properly, I started looking online for adoption & buying options.
Saw online that there was a cute little teddy bear in a shelter nearby. Decided to check it out, this is a very big shelter where they care for animals very properly, consequently, there's a lot of animals there, including tens to hundreds of dogs. Took me a while to try to locate the one I saw online. Couldn't find her. Asked a few volunteers and even they couldn't find her. Decided to talk to the person in charge, she was already adopted! I said I'm happy for her, but wasn't very happy that I couldn't keep her.
To cheer myself up I decided to just walk along the doggos, and to my surprise, there was a Siberian Husky at their shelter! White undercoat, Black coat, Bright Blue Eyes! I was in love! Decided to play with him for a while, he was super responsive to my commands, and wasn't doing something that'd make me suspect of him being treated badly, so no unpredictable behavior. Checked the papers, he was just 3 to barely 4 years old! Why would someone leave him like this!? Anyway, I remembered that I always wanted a husky, but was looking for smaller dogs to get used to having a dog again. But how could I say no to those warm wanting blue eyes!? So I ended up filling the paperwork immediately! I had lost the opportunity to have one dog I wanted today, I WASN'T GOING TO LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN!
Anyway, this is super unlike me, I like to plan ahead and do things, but this was one of the most spontaneous things I've ever done. Adopted a husky before doing any research! They're gonna take a while to do some medical and paperwork and licensing stuff before they can release him to me, which takes about a week. Which is kinda funny because legally, I've already adopted the dog! Its my dog! But I can't take him with me yet. Oh well!
So, I started researching as much as possible about Siberian Huskies, saw this website on a google search page, and started reading. Y'all seem to know a lot about Siberian Huskies, and seem like nice people! Decided to join in with y'all! If you'll have me that is.
Side note, my Siberian Husky, hereon forward referred to as Ghost, as named by previous owner, was bonded with another dog, a Chihuahua, Gizmo. Similarity in name, age, and location retrieved from, leads me to believe they were owned by the same people, but the people at the desk can't tell me that. Had to adopt them together, I mean ain't gonna separate the two! Plus I don't think the suits would let me just take Ghost, not that I asked.
So, yeah! That's how I got here. I hope y'all'er having a nice evening!
