Blizzard is roughly a 4 year old female husky mix. For about 16 months she was a feral scared baby living around a dairy queen. She had been letting people throw her food for months and even had had a litter of pups before she finally was caught. She was so shut down and scared of every thing that moved and would huddle in back of her kennel as far as she could go to try to get away from any human. Brown Paws Rescue Reached out and asked if I may be able to help her. When she got to my home she was very scared. Blizzard is a special case unlike most dogs. She still is very scared and is lacking confidence so going slow with her and helping her gain confidence is 1st step and building a trusting relationship with her. Her best friend is my 3 year old dachshund. She absolutely loves her. Very sweet and gentle. She does good with bigger dog’s as long as she can be introduced slowly. She is interested but nervous. A lot of praise and cheese sticks, hotdogs have been our best friend with her. I don’t think small kids would be a good idea with how scared she is right now do to their energy levels. My kids are 12-14. For most part she does good around them but do not chase her. Any progress you may have will set her back 5 steps. Just encourage her. She Does dig a little but is VERY smart. Keeping her on a tie out when she is outside or with a small companion eases her anxiety. She does very well in bathtub. Her Safe Area is her kennel, But if you want her to continue getting better make her stay out of her kennel a few hours. And Go about your day. She Whines to go outside.She doesn’t Play with Toys but is interested. LOVES TREATS! Is not Destructive. For First Couple Weeks in your home i would go slow with everything. Lot’s of praise and treats. Don’t be afraid to baby talk her. She will grunt and talk back.
