It's been nearly one week since Sacramento-area rescue groups began circulating photos of four Huskie and Huskie-mix dogs surrendered by a senior citizen man who admitted he had too many dogs in his home.
The process took some time and while rescue workers rejoice at being able to remove the pups from less-than-ideal conditions, the problem remains with finding foster homes and eventually forever-homes for the dogs.
"Sending this again because there has been no response!" said Annette via email on Friday.
All dogs are current on vaccines and spayed / neutered. Foster parents and / or adoptive parents would need to be patient in winning over these shy pups.
“Honestly, they are just backyard dogs,” said the owner. “They need someone who is willing to dedicate time to some training.”
Volunteers say they have found the pups friendly, but a little bashful. They get along well and love to play with each other, but haven’t been temperament tested around new dogs.
“They’re all timid,” says Annette via email. “Some will need time to trust. Betty is so shy, nervous and scared. She lets me pet her, but needs someone who is patient.”
