Saviour's previous owners had neglected her health and she had skin and other health issues which required medical treatment. She was also used to breed puppies, still had milk, and was undernourished when she arrived at the shelter.
Huskies are working dogs and are not bred to sit around in the backyard. Huskies have been described as professional escape artists; if they don't get stimulation and exercise they will look after themselves and find a way to go for a walk on their own! Part of the adoption process at the Shelter is to pair the needs of the dogs with the needs of the adoptive family so that animal and human are both happy. Savior was adopted by Denise and her family in 2018.
Denise knew that this dog needed a loving and patient family and worried about how Savior would adapt to a new environment, but she is doing well. Her skin has cleared up, she has put on weight, and she loves to walk at Coyote Hills.
Everyone enjoys Savior's willingness to learn, her energy and her grateful kisses!
We thank Denise and her family for loving and taking on the extra responsibility of Savior's medical care. It looks like they are being paid back in kisses and with the knowledge that they have given her a new home and family that looks after her!
Denise wanted to relay how grateful she is for the Tri-City Animal Shelter, and their awesome, friendly staff.
