  1. I’m going to confess … when I saw the pictures, I was sad and angry because I just assumed you’d bought him from a breeder. (Please forgive me … I’ve had some experiences over the past few years that make it hard to assume the best of people.) Then I did a little more reading around your website, and I’m so, so happy to see that you know about rescue, and choose to rescue dogs rather than going to a breeder. I retired recently from running a rescue for a bit over five years – it was exhausting and heartbreaking and wonderful, and I’m almost ready to start blogging about it. Enjoy your baby; he looks darling!

      Oh, I’ve only gone to a breeder for my first Husky, who pasted away after 10 years of heaven. I bought him b/c I got to see where he was raised, it was called the Husky farm. It was a wonderful place. I’d always adopted from the Humane Society or from people dumping pets at my vets office. The only reason i got the husky from a breeder was he was a gift to me from my husband before he was deployed to Iraq (my son was four months, daughter was 2.5 & my oldest was 8 & my husband was going to be gone over a year). I used to watch huskies race in Vermont growing up & fell in love with the breed then. We fostered a female Husky from a rescue & adopted her a few years ago. But when my big Husky died, i still ache from the loss of him, I asked for another male pup a few weeks ago. So off to the Humane Society for this Heinz 57 dog. We will always rescue.(both our cats are rescue) I’m happy to hear that you ran a rescue. Your work must have been all those things you said & I greatly admire anyone strong enough to do the work you did. Thank you for liking my new baby. He is wonderful! ~amy

      He is a Heinz 57 dog. We have no idea. The Humane Society said he was a lab mix. But his body is more like a terrier. I just fell in love at first sight! thank you! ~amy

  12. Beautiful little face, I adore those brown eyes and those big ears! What a noble sounding name, my favorite part is Winston, he looks the part! How is going the partnering with Nala my princess husky?

      Thank you, Eva. Princess Nala is coming around. She was very jealous at first & growled like a wolf for the first few days, but now she growls with her tail wagging…like a Mama dog. I’m happy about that. He is so hyper & she is so chilled out, that I’m hoping she teaches him to calm down as he gets older! The Birmingham Humane Society named him Winston & I really liked the name, but we wanted to make him our own by giving him a new first name. ~amy
