HOMEWARD BOUND - ADOPTED - now living happily in Papillion, NE!
In late December of last year, just before Christmas, a Good Samaritan driving along a blacktop highway in the dark spotted something wriggling on the side of the road. That moving object turned out to be a litter of seven freezing Husky mix puppies. This good person was astonished and horrified. If three of the pups had not been light in color she would have missed them altogether. There weren't any houses or farms nearby which is probably why the puppies were dumped where they were--no witnesses. These precious babes appeared to be only 5-6 weeks old and had not even been weaned yet. They were hungry and thirsty when they arrived but did not even know what to do with kibble or a bowl of water. Once we softened the food they got the right idea and filled up their bellies.
It was touch and go there for a while as staff members worried over their fragile charges, making sure each of them was gaining weight and staying healthy and warm. Due to the excellent care they received, the Highway Huskies, our little Christmas miracles, grew fat and happy and were spoiled rotten. Each one became sturdy, silly, goofy and adoring of the humans who saved their lives.
Nick is the only pup left at the shelter and we want to make sure this darling animal does not grow up here. He is so sweet and friendly and loves to play. He is gorgeous - with one blue eye and one brown eye. We would love to find him an active family to entertain for a lifetime!
