Zia came to us with her brother Balto from Clovis, NM. The pair grew up together and spent the majority of their time together outside. They did have human interaction, but not quite enough of it to be 100% normal pups, and they are a bit more on the timid and skittish side as a result.
Zia is the more outgoing of the pair, and has had a lot of time to warm up in her first foster home with other huskies who taught her to play and come out of her shell. She will alternate between affectionate play and affiliation with her human, and timid aversion from time to time – though with think eventually this will likely resolve and improve.
She was absolutely overjoyed to see her brother again when she was reunited in a new foster home in early October with him! After observing them together after 1-2 months apart, we all solidly agreed that the pair need to be adopted together.
