Update on Blue

Blue (here and here), now Freyja, has come a long way.

Hello to everyone and a Happy New Year! First of all, I want to thank everyone for the amazing job that they are doing at animal services.

My husband and I adopted a puppy from your centre and took her home on July 20, 2008. Freyja was born at animal services, along with two other liter mates (a brother and sister). I had the pleasure of walking their mother, Alice, a beautiful Siberian Husky, and when I saw her puppies, I knew that I would be taking one home with me. We decided to adopt the playful female that had been nicknamed "Blue" and up till today, we receive compliments on her unique look, and questions about where we got her - to which we proudly say, "we adopted her from animal services!". Also, we recently completed a DNA test to finally figure out her heritage - and the results were Siberian Husky, Bernese Mountain Dog and Rottweiler.

Freyja, now going on 8 months and 55 lbs, is gorgeous and the center of attention wherever we take her. She is well-adjusted, extremely outgoing, and is an all-around happy, silly puppy. She likes sleeping on the sofa with her teddy bear, but lives for running and playing in the snow. We are glad to report that she hasn't destroyed any furniture, although we are missing a few socks!

Freyja completed Puppy Kindergarten last fall, and we are currently working on Rally Obedience under the guidance of our very awesome trainer at Dog Training That Works. We hope to get a Rally-O title by the end of the year.

So from the three of us, thank you again for your hard work and your true dedication to the wonderful animals at the centre. We hope that all the animals that pass through the centre have a journey as happy as Freyja's.

Man that little pup really grew into a Beauty.
I did think she looked like a Bernese Mountain dog in that puppy video.
By the size of that bone I guess Santa thought she was a good girl.
Great update.

James could tell you. I think it costs about $60.

There's DNA testing for dogs? Do they take mail in samples? I swear, I have something here that is part dog and part tasmanian devil! Mind you, her best bud looks as if he is part sheep, so I guess it balances out...

Freya is gorgeous. And those eyes -- no prize for guessing the husky in her ancestry!
