Here is a shot of us now. That is right, they shaved him.These people failed to mention on their application that they wanted a dog who would obey orders immediately and without any training. They also wanted a dog who would sit quietly while a toddler poked him in the ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. The toddler is lucky Maximus is too nice of a dog to bite because that probably would have pushed me to the edge. I think a Siberian Husky is not the breed they want. Maximus is understandably confused about moving around, and he will have to wait all summer for his fur to return. I am sure you all know that our fur protects us in the summer from the heat and sunlight, not to mention bugs, irritating plants, and the teeth of our rough housing foster siblings. Shaving does not make us cooler, it makes us vulnerable. One thing these people did right is returning Maximus to us so we can find a family who appreciates a well-behaved, friendly Sibe.
