Arrival Story: Samson was a ward of the pound. I was hunting for a husky to purchase for my husband. I saw him and wanted to bring my husband to see him. I spoke with the pound and they said he was due to be euthanized. He had been adopted twice and the people brought him back as unruly. I told them I needed to go get my husband and they said they didn't hold dogs because too often people would ask them to hold them and then never show up as agreed. I called my husband and told him about the dog and he asked if he had blue eyes. I didn't look. UGH!! I hurriedly went home and met my husband and went back to the pound. We walked around the side of the cages to see Samson and he growled at my husband for like two seconds. Then he waged his tail and whimpered and barked to GET OUT! We took him for a walk and decided we wanted to take him home. HE IS SUCH A GOOD DOG! I can't imagine why two families couldn't handle him. He's just ALL Husky. Husky are who they are! ; ) We were told he was an outside dog. I didn't know what that meant. We always had indoor dogs. I didn't know how to change a dog from outside to inside but I contacted "dogs deserve better" and learned. I can't stand dogs on chains outside. We crate trained him at first. I felt sorry for him so every morning I would give him a puppy massage because he had to sleep in that cramped cage. That was a bad habit to start. He thinks that is a given now. He is the BEST dog! He's dad's pride and joy!
Bio: Samson is a typical husky. He is his own man. My favorite description of husky is "not quite obedient" or "obedience is optional". That's our boy. He does what he wants and if it so happens it's what you want too then he'll please you. Otherwise, oh well, you can't please all the humans all the time. He's a great traveler. He loves his dad! He talks and loves his belly rubbed. When we got ready to move after we first had him we found about 5 lbs of dog food buried under the t v stand in the living room. I bet he wasn't fed well. He hasn't ever done that again. I guess he knows he won't starve so he doesn't have to save food. When he was first crate trained he learned that the crate we had had a removable bottom. He learned to push the bottom out and walk the cage around the living room to wherever he wanted to go. (We found the zip ties!) He sleeps with his dad on the bed often. He is SPOILED unbelievably.
