This is one of those stories that stretches the bounds of credibility. You can choose to believe it or not. All I can do is swear it’s absolutely true.
Nearly a year ago, a beautiful young husky landed at the rural animal shelter where I volunteer, brought in after being spotted alone in a snowy field. Days passed and no one claimed her so she got a name — Alpine —and efforts commenced to find her a home.
Alpine seemed distant, watchful, wary of people — a fairly common reaction when a dog finds itself in a new environment and is figuring out new survival techniques. But as weeks passed, it became clear that this was not a temporary condition. Her aloofness was extreme (even for a husky, which is generally not an instant-bonding dog like, say, a Lab), and time and our displays of love were having no impact.
