They wander the streets looking for scraps to survive. They’re sick, malnourished, ill-treated, chained up with no food, water or protection from the elements. They’re abused in puppy mills. They’re victims of gambling in illegal dog-fighting and dog-racing syndicates. Abandoned, lost, thrown out like garbage, buried alive, burnt, starving, emaciated ... These are the forgotten souls of God’s creation.

And then there are the fortunate few that find themselves in shelters. Sadly, some shelters also mete out a measure of abuse, but for the most part, shelter owners are ordinary individuals or organisations trying to make a difference by providing shelter, food, water and medical care—the basic needs of any living being—to those who have been forgotten.

Education on the breed is vital for potential Husky owners, and today I would like to touch on a topic that I am passionate about – GROOMING AND UNDERSTANDING YOUR HUSKY’S DOUBLE COAT.

In 2002 we had the very special privilege of bringing home the first two Huskies that Charnell had decided to buy from a pet shop. These were the early days when we were still very naïve.

‘Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) provides opportunities for motivational, educational, recreational, and/or therapeutic benefits to enhance quality of life’.

Running a rescue sounds easy enough. I mean you find a stray, you take it in, give it some food and medical attention when required, give it a bath and you find it a new home. Easy enough and anyone can do it right? Wrong!

The evil of backyard breeders and the complicated wolf dog....

Huskies are typical pack dogs and LOVE to be with their human and canine friends. We do not recommend keeping a husky as a single dog as they are often very lonely, get depressed and resort to destructive behaviour.
