We adopted Zorro, a shaded black German Spitz, from your group about two years ago now - how time flies! I have attached a pic of Zorro and his BFF Snoopy, who we also 'recycled' when he had finished his show/stud career. Zorro had been dumped at the pound in the ACT, and was going to be put down as 'unsociable' and 'unsuitable for rehoming' but fortunately one of your people recognised that he wasn't really growling - that's just the way he talked! Anyway, he is a lot more sociable now, and loves walking up to people and 'assuming the position' for a pat. Or a feed if he's lucky! A little bit of chili pepper in oil resolved his love of garbage bins, and a basket of dog biscuits left out means he no longer has to feel defensive over food. Everybody's happy :) Thank you sooo much.
Another Sucess story with our 2nd Winterpaws Husky
Another Success story with our 2nd Winterpaws Husky. We picked up Typhoon in late January 2011 from his previous home in Goulburn.
He has settle well - loves the bike rides, the constant play, loves food and can sniff out and digest anything that is leather - my wallet and watch were early victims :)
4 months on and he is doing well - talking plenty and eager to please
In Rememberence of Caesar, Rest In Peace
Just had a look on your site and realised I should emailed you to let you know of another success story, and maybe put Mahli’s old family’s minds at rest if they happen to see it.
In November of 2008 I saw a beautiful picture of Mahli the 7yr old Malamute looking for a home, along with lovely a write up from her family about what she was like and why they could not keep her (child had severe asthma).
We went along to Somersby RSPCA to meet her, I must admit I was overwhelmed by her size, but my husband immediately fell in love with her and the next day we took her home, to our childrens’ delight, to be part of our family.
We absolutely love Mahli, she was obviously loved and well raised by her previous family. She gets on with our cats, loves all visitors and her new best doggy friend is Max, our miniature fox terrier. I take her on walks everyday and she always makes sure she gets lots of belly rubs and sleeps by our bed at night. Occasionally, she is a bit naughty and sneaks out the gate if it has been left open and goes for a swim in the neighbours dam then comes home wet and smelly.
Attached are some pictures.
Sue and family.
We drove up to Richmond and picked up Alaska as she was too much for her past owners who had relocated
A 2yo white Husky to join out clan of 3 "normal" coloured dogs
After a day of being a quiet girl she turned into a stand over tactician very quickly and took a lot of work in the first 2 months
She has joined in well and displays much more affection to us that the other 3 dogs - she must be thankful!
She bring some youth and vigour to the bike pulling team and is the new leader - and gets plenty of running and swimming in daily
Kai 10, Keisha 9 and Tubz 8 put up with her well - she is not as tight as them but enjoys life solo at times and as part of the group when its human lead
We installed some electric wires on top of the 6ft colourbond fence so she is safe and sound - a must for this young escape artist !
Its been nearly 2 years now with Alaska in the crew - so thanks guys at Winterpaws for all your hard work and commitment
Seren made herself right at home with her new family. Her new family said she'd only come inside to the kitchen. It was less than 30 minutes before Seren had explored the whole house, and often sleeps inside at her new owner's feet.
Angel's luck came good, successfully rehomed to what could only be a dog's dream owner - a butcher!
Loki was covered in fleas, with badly flystruck ears, and very underweight. After some medical attention, and a change to a good diet, Loki's coat improved, the hair on his ears grew back, and was a nice solid healthy dog. He soon found his forever home, where he is in good hands and has a girlfriend in a 10 month old Siberian Husky x Kelpie.
Thought I would share our story with you. We adopted Crystal around three months ago, we renamed her Dakota (new start, new name!). She now spends her days with her brother (Sabre) who she loves to play with (and boss around!) and playing at the park everyday with their friends (Mishka and Asha, also Sibes).
She has settled in beautifully and we love her very much. Soon Sabre and Dakota are both off to training camp (Sabre has been before, but this is her first visit!) she has learnt so much already we know she is going to have a lovely time and learn lots of new things.
We think Winterpaws does a wonderful job at helping re-home these beautiful puppies! I just wish we had enough space for more of them!
