“the rest of the story” with Texas Husky Rescue
We got Maverick from a breeder when he was 8 weeks old. When he turned one, we started talking about getting another husky so he would have company during the day and someone to play with other than us. We asked some other people their opinions on having two dogs and the majority said definitely, two are better than one.
We decided to see if there were any husky rescues in our area. That’s when we found Texas Husky Rescue. They have a website where you can look at all the current dogs available for adoption ( www.texashuskyrescue.org ). We decided that fostering would be a good way to see if we could handle two and find a good fit as well. They saved a dog that had been dumped just before she had puppies. These puppies were born in March, right before Easter, so their temporary names related to the holiday. When they were old enough they were added to the adoptable page. By the time we heard about “Jellybean” she had already been adopted. So we kept fostering while we looked for just the right dog.
Fast forward a few months and we were looking at the website again when we saw “Jellybean” again as available. We immediately called Claudia, one of the contacts we had made at the rescue, to ask about her. She had been adopted and returned 3 times! Just for being a puppy. Ya’ll know about puppies, right? Puppy nipping, potty training, chewing & learning about crates. It’s a lot of work. So when we called she already had someone else interested as well, so we told Claudia to put us next on the list because we felt like she was the one. A few days later we got a call that we could go get her and foster her until we decided for sure. It didn’t take us long to make the decision and “Jellybean” became Haley.
Next time we’ll talk some more about scrapbooking, be sure to drop back by!
