Frankie came to us from our good friends at Siberian Husky Assist, the same people who guided Kodiak into our lives several years ago. We were back over with them January 14 for their annual Winterfest. If you are anywhere near Bristol, Virginia, please plan on attending this great event and support Siberian Husky rescue.
Frankie has settled in very nicely. He has found the dog closet where all of the good things are stored, and tried to walk away with a bag of 100 bully sticks. We certainly have to give him credit for thinking big. And he is learning how to ride in a seatbelt in the Jeep (some pictures of the bloopers from that experience later this week). And he has taken quickly to our hiking routines.
Most importantly, he is learning the rest of The Herd. He has proven to be quite the flirt with the girls and is especially smitten with Natasha (again – more credit for thinking big). He and Cheoah are closest in age and they are already engaging in some smack down wrestling matches. We will show you some pictures later this week showing how well he and Kiska are getting along. And he and Qannik and Rusty get along fine with only a small amount of that boy dog trying to outdo each other stuff.
For the next week or so, he will continue to gain more freedom as he continues to prove himself trustworthy in the house and with every other pup, but so far everything is progressing very well. He also gets vet checked this week. We do not anticipate any challenges as all of his vet checks from the rescue were clean. We are guessing he is around 40 pounds and probably a year and a half old.
Welcome to The Herd, Frankie!
