Update - March 13: Thinsel here and I am definitely back. In fact, I have been for a few weeks but the good people at Animatch had to get a handle on what kind of home would best suit me. When I arrived, I was half starved, not feeling well, quiet, and appeared much older than I really am. It is now estimated that my age is about 2!!!! Animatch has a Foster Mom who is very good at figuring dogs like me out and getting us on the right track to the perfect home. The people who adopted me are not to blame; I simply am not the same dog as when I arrived. Read carefully what my Foster Mom has to say about me and then if you feel I'm exactly what you are looking for, fill in a application form.
"Thinsel is very high energy, and requires long walks. Back yard play is nice, but she needs her walks. She pulls on leash, and greets other dogs with a nip to their tail, leg or bum to get them to play. This usually does not go over well! For this reason, she is not a candidate for a dog park.
Obedience is a must, as she has puppy manners in an adult body. She is extremely food motivated, so this helps in keeping her focused and working on commands. She now knows "leave it", "drop" and "wait", so you can imagine how she is on walks.
She is not toy or food aggressive, and is currently living with 2 other dogs. She plays rough, so play needs to be supervised. When you leave the house, she should be crated. At night, she is not crated, nor when someone is home, and she is not destructive. She is however, a talented counter surfer.
She loves going in the car, which means fun walks. She is also a prolific shedder, as all Huskies are. Hair everywhere."
My name is Thinsel and I choose to believe that better days lie ahead. Life is finally good for me and it is getting better every day as I am pampered with nutritious food, clean water, and best of all cuddles that make me feel warm and loved. At this time, I don’t have the tolerance for other dogs; since I’m not yet in tip-top shape, their goofy antics just annoy me. For that reason, I would thrive in a home where I was your one and only. I weigh 28 lbs and I should be at least 50. I was found and brought to Animal Control by a Good Samaritan who made it their business to help me out. My feet were bloody, I was exhausted and lethargic, and I was in desperate need of food and water. No one claimed me so the good people at Animatch welcomed me with open arms. I’ve been promised a new beginning filled with unconditional love and care. I’ve got some mending to do – I am anemic and severely underweight. At this point, I need a quiet, low traffic home, where I can enjoy a walk or two, relax and let my body heal, and benefit from some well-deserved attention. I am 7 years old and my dream is that my next 7 years will be shared with a human who can make up for lost time. If you have a home to offer me; I’m ready to be your dog. I’m looking for a long-term, serious relationship. Please fill in the Adoption Form if you want to adopt me.
