This is a Siberian Husky which was found wondering at the void deck of my brother's block 2 weekends ago. He's about 2/3 months old and has blue eyes. I took him in as there will be no one to take care of him on the next day which is Monday. My brother think he is dumb dumb as he did not bark when he lock him in the toilet while waiting for us to come by. Since, I have Jin Jin, Phua and myself would have more experience to take care of his needs until we send him to SPCA.
When we took him back to the home that evening, Jin was barking on and off. Guess she must be wondering why this foreigner came to take over mommy and daddy. We have to keep them apart especially when Jin snapped at Husky. Had to give Husky a bathe because he smells. It was difficult to bath him due to his thick coat. I locked both of us in the bath room and Husky was running around and it's hard to hold him down. Anyway not many dogs like to bath. After a few minutes I think he saw himself no way of getting out of this wet situation, he sat quickly and let me bath him.
It took some minutes before his coat is 90 percent blow dry. We always wonder why people like to keep husky as pets in this hot climate. They are not suited for this humid climate and I was thinking letting him sleeps in our room as it's air conditioned. But I know it's not possible because Husky wee and poo anywhere as he pleases. He's not toilet trained yet.
After the beauty regime, a bowl of dog food (dry pallets) and a bowl of water was given to him and he ate a little. As it was late, almost midnight, I took Jin to the bedroom to sleep. I left Husky with Phua. I did not hear any noise outside the bedroom throughout the night. I think Husky must be sleeping well. Well, he did, when I opened my bedroom door he was just sleeping there. He got up and wag his tail and follow me to the kitchen and I stepped into the weewee. He was weeing small pools here and there. Phua told me that evening, Husky was quietly sleeping beside him while he was doing his work.
So Husky followed me around the house throughout the day. Meanwhile Jin was petty quite except when there's food concerned. Her eyes was watching me/daddy and Husky all the time. I know she is not feeling her usual herself. Her little mind is thinking, thinking. We had to tell her that Husky is just coming for a few days only. Wonder what she thought of that answer when she saw Husky taking her toy-toy to play. She gave me a look when Husky took the toy. Well, she's jealous and when Husky tried to play with her, she barks, growl and snapped at him. I have to carry Jin to prevent Husky from going near her. I was afraid she might bit him and in returned, a fight may ensue. At this point, we heard Husky making small sounds. Not like the big dogs bark. At least we now know Husky is not a dumb-dumb. Do you know that in China, it was reported that dog owners in order not to register their dog (it's very expensive..something like thousands of dollars), they send the dogs to surgically remove their voice box. In this way, no neighbors would compliant about the noise as well as how many dogs they kept.
Have to send Husky to SPCA as he was doing his business as he likes. I am glad there are some good samaritans telling us through sms about who possibly may own Husky. I've asked my brother to take a photo of Husky and post a few notes around the block.
Husky was also beginning to feel comfortable with us as he wents to play with me; whenever I stroke him, he would want to nibble my fingers. He is actual having the teething problem wanting to chew things like the way he took the toy and bit, fling it around.... Late afternoon, Phua took him to SPCA. We told Jin that Husky is going home.
He found out that SPCA some how knew who may have own Husky. You see, not many people would want a husky as pet. You have to give them a big area to move around, it's a large dog..... and landed property best suits them. Beside my brother's block are private estates. We were assured that Husky would not be put down and he's probably a lost dog. If he's up for adoption eventually, I'm sure many people would want him. To buy a husky is expensive, thousands of dollars. Phua came back and told me what Husky did on the way to SPCA. Husky was put in the back seat and we also have newspapers on the floor as we are afraid Jin may wee and poo at times in the car. The papers would safeguard the flooring. Husky was quietly chewing the papers to bits and pieces. We are glad we send him away, otherwise, my things in the house will be torn and tatter.
Anyway, we both agreed that Husky is a good dog. His eyes told me that he would be an obedient and well trained dog in future. Next 2 days, we saw the advertisement in ST on Husky and thereafter, no more ads. Husky is happy home again!
