Thank you to everyone who has been following Lucie's progress and offering her words of encouragement!! Lucie has been here for 5 weeks now and she is making wonderful progress. When she first came to us she was extremely shy, skiddish, she barely moved, she was fearful of people, her fur was thin, and she looked very sad. Lucie has been fed a well balanced diet, thanks to our generous donors at #FreshPet and her fur is plush and full. Huskies have soft fur, but her fur is extra soft! She is approaching people and other dogs now. She started by licking peoples hands, now she is giving kisses! Sudden movements still seem to scare her, and she is going to need an owner who can be patient and calm with her. She is learning commands and responds well when redirected. Lucie is enrolled in Basic Obedience with our friends from Passion For Paws in Northampton, PA. She has 4 more weeks of training to go! There is still some work that needs to be done with crate training, as she doesn't have that all figured out yet! She seems to like the crate now, especially because she gets treats for going in there. As you can see from the picture below, she loves walking with her pack friends! She also is loving all this snow and likes to lay and roll around in it. We will try to get a video of how wiggly and excited Lucie gets when she sees the leash. She puts her ears back and wags her tail, and sits when her leash is being put on. She really has been making remarkable progress and we are happy to help her along her journey. But, the foster home is not the final destination, so we are taking applications for Lucie. If you think you could give Lucie a calm and stable home, preferable without cats, as she may harm small animals, please fill out an application for her. Lucie is 5 1/2 years old and is low-moderate energy. She loves to play with other dogs, and seems to be more confident when other dogs are around, so we would prefer she has a canine companion. Also, Lucie is still a bit timid, and may not do well around small children. She has not displayed any aggression, however, she does not like sudden movements or loud noises. She was last in heat 3 weeks ago, so we will wait a bit longer to spay her. Otherwise, she is healthy is up to date on shots. Heartworm and Lyme negative. Stay tuned for more updates!

We have a new foster who arrived this past weekend. She has been named Lucie, after Lucille Ball, since she is a red and white husky! She is 5 1/2 years old. She is doing great thus far, and has made some progress since coming into the foster home. When she arrived she was very dirty, so after 4 washes with Nature's Miracle "Tough on Dirt" Shampoo, her beautiful coat is showing! Her fur is a little coarse and thin at the moment, but we are certain it will improve over time, and especially with the FreshPet she has been eating. She's hesitant to walk on the leash by herself, but if other dogs are leading the way, she is happy to follow. She enjoys her time in the crate, as that is her den. She is working on manners and potty training as she is currently a counter surfer and has had a few accidents in the house. She gets along great with the other huskies in the home. Lucie is also a howler, and at night will sing before bedtime, We will try to capture this on video, but she does seem a bit shy to sing on camera. Lucie needs a lot of training and socialization, so she is not ready to be adopted. She is currently in heat and will need to be spayed after that. She is currently being fostered in Lehigh Valley, PA. Please check back for updates on Lucie and her journey! Check out the pictures below to see Lucie's transformation this past weekend!
