I saw the request for success stories so wanted to write you about Shelby. I want people to know that sometimes one has to work with a new pup in the house, but that it can and does pay off. We welcomed Shelby, then Yala, into our home several months ago. I'd wanted a companion for Maddox, my then four-month-old, as he was wearing out my two Springers. I'd hoped for a nice, docile, submissive girl... And got Shelby. There have been some ups and downs settling Shelby into our home. I constantly asked advice from knowledgeable husky owning friends about her. From time to time I worried I'd made a mistake, but the way she'd look at me, and played so well with Maddox, convinced me to keep trying. It was a weekend spent at the vet boarding while I was out of town that convinced Shelby she really was in her forever home, and it was time to start behaving like a member of the family. Ever since I showed up after four nights of boarding her and Maddox, she has been a dream! She no longer fights with my female springer over the silly things, and she has a great, loving attitude. Though she has her quirks (don't touch her feet unless she knows you're going to! And never ever hum to her!) she is a wonderful companion, very expressive and silly. She's also put on about seven pounds since she joined us, and her red fur is absolutely beautiful. At times I wanted to throw my hands up but the sweet kisses she gives me now, and the endless 'conversations' we have, make up for all the hard work she was at first. We are very happy with Shelby in our home, and Maddox adores her! Springers suppose she is okay too. Whew!
