Need A Home For The Holidays!
Diesel is 16 months old and weights about 60 pounds. He's a
sweet dog who craves attention and loves to be right next to
his human at all times. Diesel loves to play fetch and wrestle
with other dogs. Like most huskies, he will get into mischief
if left alone so crating him while you're gone is a must. If
you would like more information about Diesel please contact
his foster mom at
Akira is full of husky spirit and looking to become part of
an active home. She is very affectionate and loves to give

A secure fenced-in yard is a must. She is special needs

inexpensive medication. Akira is available for adoption

adoption application. It
does not obligate you to adopt her but it will allow her
foster home to contact you.

From The Trainer........Begging
Begging is one of the most common problems Siberian
Husky owners face. It is also one of the easist to
correct with a little willpower on your part. Here are
1. Do not give your dog food ; seems like common sense
right, but then they look at you with those big baby
blues and do the husky whine/talk and the next thing
you know your caving in.
2. Ignore it ; begging is attention seeking behavior,
ignoring it teaches the dog that it does not work.
3. Don't feel sorry for your dog ; he is very well fed
and if he is working harder you may need to increase
his food intake. If in doubt, consult your vet.
4. Be consistent ; as with any dog training
consistency is the key to success. Make sure you and
your family members do it 100% of the time.
5. Be patient ; few dogs change overnight. Stay
consistent and don't give up and in the end you will
have a better behaved dog.
6. Kong toys ; I stuff my dogs Kong with his holiday
meal, a few pieces of turkey ,gravy, grreen beans, a
dab of sweet potatoes and a few raw baby carrots
wedged in keeps him busy while we enjoy our meal.

and the rest of the ingredients, reserving 1/4 cup of
flour. Stir until mixed adding the rest of the flour
as needed. Knead until no longer sticky and roll out
on a floured board until 1/2" thick and cut with
floured bone shaped cookie cutters. Bake at 300

As 2010 comes to a
close my wish for 2011 is that people will come
to understand and appreciate what a wonderful breed
the Siberian Husky is. That more people will open
their homes to foster Siberians in need, until they
can find their forever homes . That each year we get
more and more volunteers to continue and expand the
success of the Husky Hike. As the SHCGC and Adopt A
Husky continue to grow, I believe it is possible
with this dedicated group of people.I want to wish
everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
