Since Mika was reactive to other dogs, we needed to keep her separate from our two dogs, Stony and Tasha. She stayed in my office with me and seemed quite calm, happy to chew on all her stuffy toys.
I agreed to take Mika on walks while she was here and I soon found out how exuberant and excitable she could be. She also barked and whined and pulled hard whenever she saw another dog walking or behind a fence. In a few days, she seemed to calm down somewhat while I was walking her and we started to get along great together. I really started to like this dog in those few days.
In the pictures below, notice how much thinner and less shaggy Mika is after being groomed and bathed compared to when she first was transported to Moonsong Malamute Rescue.
