Wolf was 10 months old and Skye only 9 months old when they were discovered by Sonia. At this point, they were sharing a small terraced house, with a tiny back yard, along with 3 children under the age of 4. Young huskies need lots of attention, play time and sleep and in this busy household it was very difficult to meet the needs of Wolf and Skye. Sometimes, they would both do things like chew the children’s toys or forget to wait until they were outside if they needed the toilet. They were so full of energy and found it difficult to be calm and quiet in the house they were living in. If they were put out in the yard, they very quickly became bored because it was so small. This meant they were even more excitable when they were allowed back inside.
We found out about Skye and Wolf and Sonia headed out on the journey to pick them up and bring them here to Snowdog Shelter. When she arrived, Wolf and Skye were running around the room with the children and it was very chaotic! As Sonia sat on the sofa, Wolf was running up and over her, along the top and doing zoomies around the room. He was very careful of the children though and never knocked into them once. Skye was adding to the noise by dancing around and singing. Sonia decided to take Wolf and Skye on a short walk so she could chat with the lady, Sue, about their likes and dislikes including what food they were used to.
It is possible that Wolf and Skye were purchased in order to breed when they were older because husky puppies can be sold for a lot of money. However, this home would not have been a good setting for new puppies.
After a two-hour journey, Sonia arrived back at Snowdog Shelter with Wolf and Skye, where they very quickly settled in. Before long, another husky called Skye landed here. Because this now meant having two ‘Skyes’, the second one, a husky cross boy was re-named Blue, and was initially nick named Blue -Sky!
Over the next 6 months, whenever Skye or Wolf saw a pushchair with young children, they would become very excited and cry to be allowed to see them. They hoped to see their family again, but this never happened. Wolf still loves to meet children, especially very young ones under the age of 4!
Skye went on to become best friends with Tasha, one of our apprentices. Because they loved each other so much, it was decided Skye would be happiest living with Tasha who also has other dogs. Skye sometimes comes here for a visit, but she is happiest when she is being a house husky. Skye is also the mother of Ghost and Mischief.
