Charlina.......

First, sorry it took me so long to post...had one of those freak storms over the weekend and lost power for 14 hours.......I was way off in the things that needed to be caught up on....so here I am now!! I was going to talk about a few dogs in this post.....but I am dedicating it to my fav girl Charlina!!! Charlina came into the Husky Haven program about two and a half years ago. She had a fracture in her pelvis, you can only imagine how that happened (I prefer not to) along with other health problems. We kept her calm and crated, hoping the fracture would heal , and it did. We still kept her from too many dogs for a while, didn't want her to re injure herself. She turned out to be the prettiest, most friendly girl, if I hadn't had too many dogs myself I would have adopted her.......but I decided to make it my mission to take her to as many shows as I could.....hoping to get her exposure and a new home. And to shows she went, she was so well behaved, kids and adults loved her.......I expected after every show that there would be a ton of applications.....but never one!!!! I was so disappointing.....but I kept taking her. In January, a nice couple had seen her on the website and wanted to foster......it wasn't an adoption, but gave her a chance to be in a home situation. Sadly, the couple decided this month to move back to California and Charlina came back to us.

This last weekend Husky Haven had a couple of things going on, I was helping with an adoption and a couple of the other volunteers were working a small show. Since Charlina was back, she could go to the show, but the couple coming for adoption were looking for a B and W, Blue eyed female. Although she was a bit older than they were looking for we decided to give her a chance at a possible adoption. I sent Tilton off to the show and kept my fingers crossed!!! They drove in from Austin and showed pics of their girl, she had died from a tumor at only five years old.....I was so sad for them, but was grateful that they were looking to bring someone else into their home to love and take care of. They looked at all our girls, but took a second look at Charlina!!! In the end, my wonderful girl found herself a great new family!!!!!
I'm ready to go!!!!!!!
I always believe that there is someone out there for every one of our dogs, this was her time!!! I would say I was sad, and maybe a little, but so happy that she gets a new life, she deserves it. So Charlina, I have to pick someone else to go to shows with, but I know you and your family won't mind. Charlina already is on FB and I will be posting new pics of her in her new home......Love you girl and have a happy life!!!!!

  3. Thanks for adopting this beautiful girl! She was alway so well behaved at the adoption events, rolling over for tummy rubs. Everyone loved her freckles! Glad she found you and will know what it's like to have a loving home at last!

  5. As I'm reading more about adoptions with Husky Haven, I'm reading about "shows" ...? Is that the only way to adopt from Husky Haven is to attend the shows? I'm just trying to figure out how it all works out because I've submitted an app via online, and haven't heard anything from anyone. I would love to be included in adopt stories as well, but I'm not sure how it all works. Glad she finally got adopted by a loving family...I love reading stories on adoptions. :)
