    More than meets the eye! By Petwave | http://www.petwave.com/Dogs/Breeds/Siberian-Husky.aspx With its intense eyes, soulful howl, and seemingly endless endurance, the Siberian Husky has earned its reputation as a tough working breed. But there’s more than meets the eye, because the Siberian has a softer side— a sweet disposition and affectionate nature....

SOME OF OUR DOGS THAT NEED A SPECIAL HOME

Natai

Looking for my Special Home!

NATAI was in a lovely home until his family moved into a home that could not accommodate a husky. Natai’s owners advertised him and homed him to a family who answered their ad. Unfortunately no home check was done and Natai kept gate-running and kept ending up on the street so he was returned to his original owner who then gave him to a family-friend. This was a less than ideal house-hold that was also not fit to keep a husky in the yard. But this time the new owners decided to address Natai’s escape efforts by chaining him down. This is no life for a husky and when Natai protested through soulful howls and chewing at his restraints, he was beaten. During one of his beatings he retaliated with a bite and was packed up in the car and brought to the Haven.

While a shelter is not the best place for a dog to be, in this case, Natai is in a far better place than where he was. He’s a gorgeous black & white, blue-eyed two year old male with a striking mask and he needs a family who is prepared to put in some work to regain his trust, build-up his confidence, understand his mistrust of human-beings and work through it with him. We believe that with the right work and the right attitude towards this dog he would make an incredible companion.

An increase in demand results in an increase of supply and as a result irresponsible backyard breeders have flooded neighborhoods with puppies without educating people on the very specific needs of these breeds of dogs. Families have found themselves unable or unwilling to accommodate the needs of the dogs and dogs are found roaming the streets, abandoned or even worse; abused. Hence the need for an organisation like ours.

It has become evident that people are ill-informed and ignorant to the very specific needs of the breed. To compound the issue of ignorance, back-yard breeding has increased the number of husky puppies available to the public and husky owners are purchasing pets with bad bloodlines and genetic defects.
