Default Update on 17 Sled Dogs in Ohio!

Does everyone remember the 17 heartworm positive sled dogs that I posted about? The ones that got seized in Ohio?

Well, two of them will be here not this weekend, but the next! Cuddles is a male, ~7-8 years old, white in color, and one of the worst so far as physical condition goes. His ears have damage from nasty fly bites, and he's extremely thin. I can't wait to pamper him and fatten him up.

The other dog I'm taking is Katie, and she's a two year old, tan and gray in color. Not in as bad of shape as Cuddles, but still not in ideal shape. I wasn't really wanting to take a younger dog, but my friend that has them assures me that she's a very calm girl and should get along with my furry crew just fine. I might offer her for adoption, I might keep her. Time will tell. I'm definitely keeping old man Cuddles.

I also might be caring for a third dog from this group, Katie's sister Mary. Another Siberian enthusiast that I know in MA is interested in her and talking with the rescue that has them right now. So if she decides to take Mary, I will be doing the last leg of the trip to MA to drop her off.

I am so excited, I can't wait until they get here!! Just had to share!

Congrats! What a wonderful thing to do! I'm so glad those dogs get to go to you!
It's infuriating to see poor Cuddles. That's beyond 'too thin' and into emaciation.

Wow. Poor Cuddles. He's gonna get his second chance now that he has you. There's gotta be a place in the afterlife for special people like you.
