March 29, 2010 - The first time I saw Mika

Later in March, 2010, Moonsong Malamute Rescue, with other rescue support, finally decided they could take Mika into rescue and arranged transport from California to Idaho. Katy picked her up in Prineville, Oregon and brought her to Boise on her way to foster care in Chubbuck, Idaho.

When Mika arrived we took her for a short walk and rest stop. She was really dirty and ragged looking. She has long guard hairs that had accumulated debris, especially on her legs and tail. However, I was really impressed by her friendliness and beautiful malamute eyes. She was also really exuberant and was a big active dog that was hard to control on a leash. She would come up to me for pets for a few seconds, then take off exploring and sniffing the ground, bushes and trees some more. In an hour or so Katy had loaded her up again for the ride to Chubbuck.

In the next posts I will try to provide a short history of her stay in Chubbuck for the next several months, waiting to be adopted, and her history of ACL (Knee) Surgeries including her current stay in Boise with us as she recovers.
