Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > Anyway of Finding Out Microchip Information?
Teeko

I like big mud- and I cannot lie

Teeko was a sad, skinny, shaved little guy, with hookworms, when he was found wandering my neighborhood. I took him in to my vet to scan for a chip, to see if he had an owner, His chip was still registered with the shelter he'd been adopted from - in good shape, just about 2 months prior. A little further research was enough to determine he was NOT going back to the owner who neglected him so very badly...

The chip is now registered in MY name. It wasn't difficult. Different chip companies have a different number of digits in their chips - one company is a nine digit number, another a 14 digit number, etc.

I wouldn't be surprised that were a similar situation, with the person who adopted the dog never having registered it, therefore, not giving it a second thought.

Teeko was HW+ about a year ago, started on slow-kill, bad owner before me didn't keep up on preventives, and is now still high enough positive to need fast kill cry

Got his first shot, picking him up in a little while. Any suggestions on keeping a younger, active dog calm with a hyper playmate (Ace) in the house?

I stocked up on Benadryl, have a crate, and hopefully don't have to use either on Ace to get her to leave Teeko alone.

Not intending to start a debate over slow-kill vs fast-kill, since it's a done deal. It's all about the peace and quiet now, and any helpful hints anyone has.

Thanks - this whole thing has me very nervous frown

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > Before your dog was rescued

I know about most of Ace's life... She was in the pound on death row at four months old, when a rescue pulled her. She was with the rescue for three months before I adopted her at 7 months old. That time in rescue came in very handy for me as a first time dog owner, as she was (pretty much) housebroken and very well socialized with other dogs and people. Took her a while to get used to being an only dog, although that didn't last for very long. Two days will be two years since I got her... Time flies!

Teeko is more of a mystery, but not as much as it would have been if he hadn't been chipped. He's roughly two years old, and I've had him a little over 7 months now. He was wandering my neighborhood, and I offered to take him in overnight to find his owner, sight unseen, since a neighbor had found him and contained him, but couldn't hold him overnight. I got there to pick him up and he was in pretty sad shape, very skinny, and some idiot had shaved him. In January.

He was chipped by the shelter that had adopted him out only two months before. I was able to locate his previous foster via the shelter site, who was able to tell me he was in near perfect condition when adopted from the shelter. That was enough for all to agree he wasn't going back to his neglectful and uninformed owner. She was also able to tell me he'd been brought into the shelter from an abusive situation. Poor boy had gone from being chained, to being allowed to run free and get wormy and skinny cry But he was so sweet, so friendly, and so immediately loved by Ace that I couldn't bear to re-home him, so here he stayed. He is, if I may say so myself, pretty freakin' gorgeous now happy dance I don't know where the chainer got him, or if there was another crappy owner in the first year, if he was an oops litter, a BYB litter (probably)... Who knows, but he is where he is supposed to be now.

Dog Health > my husky dog doesn't gain weight!! pls help!!

Teeko was 45 pounds and very thin when I got him, and was 53 at last vet visit, and those 8 pounds made a world of difference, even though he is still lean.

It's summer, huskies can be fussier about their food in the heat. If the vet says she's healthy, relax as long as she's not losing weight. She'll probably develop more of an appetite as it gets cooler.

You can try putting her on puppy food. I did that for a little while with Teeko. You might also google "satin balls" - I know some people have found them effective for putting weight on, but I never tried to make them.

Ember... Perfect analogy with the wool sweater and athletic jacket!

Someone shaved Teeko in the winter, before I got him. I have no clue why, but the poor boy was in our swimming pool in January because he heated up so quickly.


5 months later, he's doing much better. His undercoat blow is crazy because it grew back so thick after being shaved.

He'll be fine eventually, but ...

Bump

I have no idea if Keystone sells Siberians, but I do know I have two Sibes in my home that are likely purebred, but probably not from reputable ethical breeders, since they ended up in shelters.

Oh sure, all purebreds go to good homes... Are you kidding me?

Pretty sure Teeko is purebred husky. What I know of his life so far is that he was rescued from being chained up by one owner, fostered through a shelter, adopted to another person who let him run free too much, get hookworms, and either shaved him or let some punks shave him for kicks in the winter.

Sure, he has a good home now, but his life was hell before.

Siberian Husky > Your Huskies weight and Age?

Teeko

I like big mud- and I cannot lie

Not exactly sure of age, Teeko didn't have a good start to life, ending up at a shelter somewhere close to a year old, adopted to an owner who neglected him, shaved him, and let him get hookworms and extremely skinny in just two months. He was 46 pounds when he was found roaming the neighborhood. Up to 52 pounds almost 3 months later. Vet said it seemed like a healthy weight, nice tuck at the tummy. Still looks a little thin to me, but that's compared to the larger, older, thyroid-impaired Kale, who is 6 years old and down to 70 pounds (from a high of 74, when he should probably be around 60 pounds.)

Teeko is a red male, probably less then two years old, in the process of growing out his coat and gaining back weight, after being shaved and neglected by prior owner. Looking much better after almost 7 weeks, being dewormed, and fed and loved bunches. (He was about 59 pounds when adopted and 46 pounds when found less than two months after adoption by prior owner, probably about 53 pounds or so now.) He's MY dog now! Loves his girl buddy Ace, who is a two year old husky-shepherd mix. He won't know where to pee when Kale moves out, since he loves following my daughter's husky around in the backyard and peeing where Kale pees (Boys!! laugh out loudlaugh out loudlaugh out loud )

All around sweet natured boy, very playful with Ace, very loving with me. He was found less than two months ago, and feeling better every day.
