EMPTY SHELTER PROJECT: Husky Mix Female Seeks Furever Home for Holidays

| December 20, 2013 | 0 Comments | Columns, Pet Patrol

Isa needs a new home for the new year.

Isa is a Husky mix around 1 to 2 years of age. She comes spayed, microchipped, vaccinated for Rabies and Distemper and tested for heart worm and other tick-borne diseases. She is also good with cats. Learn about her journey! 

Hi there! My name is Isa (pronounced Ice-ah). My rescuers named me that because of the color of my eyes. I’m so happy they rescued me from that shelter in West Virginia. The shelter was so overcrowded that I had to spend my time there in an outside pen in the cold. But now at my foster mom’s house I have a warm bed to sleep in. At first, I had a hard time adjusting because I had never been in a house before, but after several days and learning to trust that my foster mommy wasn’t going to hurt me, I started to open up. I now take treats out of her hand. I don’t think I had ever had a treat before. Boy, they sure are tasty. I also smile now. I now know what it feels like to be loved. I learned how to play with toys and my other rescued foster brother. We love our foster mom’s kitten. He likes to play and snuggle with us. There is a senior cat there but I don’t pay her much mind. She seems to be kind of grumpy and isn’t into playing.

Isa looks stunning in her bright pink bandana. What a looker!

I do get a bit nervous when my foster mom leaves me at home for a while. I’m worried that she may not come back and I really care about her. Plus, I really don’t want to end up back in the shelter. That place sure is scary. But I know with a patient and loving family with positive direction I can overcome that fear. I do hear that I do not do so well in a crate. I think it is because I’m a pretty smart girl and I have figured out how to get out of them. But I do well when I’m left out of my crate. I do not potty in the house. But I do sometimes get bored when I’m left alone for really long periods of time. But if I get a good walk or some play in before you leave I end up sleeping the day away. My foster mommy leaves me toys to play with when she’s gone. My favorite toys are the plastic kind. But I have a stuffed frog that I really like too.

I know I can’t stay with my foster mom forever so I’m looking for my own furever family – a family that will not give up on me. That will give me the time to adjust and open up. I hear that I’m a really great dog if someone would just give me a chance. If that sounds like you……. I will show you that I will love you forever. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.— Love, Isa
