- Adoption status
- Sponsored Dog
A perfect example of how the environment and one’s surroundings can make for a dog’s behavior. Nymeria and her sister are both purebred Huskies. Yet both were raised around a pack of wolf-dog mixes. Wolves tend to be shy and untrusting of humans (do we blame them?) When we first rescued them, they will hide and stay huddled together with their pack and did not want to come near us.
Huskies, on the other hand, are extremely people friendly and outgoing dogs. Both sisters picked up on the behavior of the wolf-dogs and are shy and will not approach people they are not familiar with. We hope that someday they will realize that not only humans are bad 🙁
