Tammy has been there for Lily since she took her first breath. Her mama was a purebred husky, and a junkyard dog, who was meaner than a snake. Lily was the runt of the litter only weighing 1/3 of her siblings. Tammy knew by the time she was eight weeks old there was something very wrong with her health. Lily was diagnosed with megaesophagus, a condition that enlarged her esophagus, not allowing her to swallow food or water. After a very complicated surgery, Lily has grown into a beautiful young dog! Although she will never be normal, cannot eat like a normal dog, and will not live as long as her Shepsky breed, Tammy will continue to love her until her last breath.
This sweet boy started out his journey with Hoardin' Huskies in a kill shelter, He had major separation anxiety and was adopted to a wonderful family in Pennsylvania, but sadly couldn't find his perfect place in their family. After three bites with three different people, Tammy was asked to sign a letter giving permission to euthanize him and she refused. Brady Bandit is now a permanent part of Hoardin' Huskies sanctuary and has been great and welcome addition to this pack. Though he is just your typical husky (mouthy and stubborn) Brady Bandit is so amazing and it was the best decision to add him to the Hoardin' Huskies pack.
Poor Shadow was wrongfully sentenced to death after his toddler unlocked the front door and set him free. Along his journey down the road, a neighbor of theirs was walking an aggressive Chihuahua and it began attacking Shadow. Poor Shadow acted out of self-defense and the outcome was not good for the Chihuahua. After a long court battle, the judge sentenced Shadow to be put to sleep, but you can’t put a dog to sleep when you can’t find him. Shadow said bye-bye South Carolina and was welcomed to the Hoardin' Huskies pack by Tammy with open arms.
Blu was at a kill shelter and had sadly been returned three times for his typical husky behaviors. When Tammy met him, she had walked away to fill out his paperwork and Blu just screamed and cried until she returned to his side. At that moment, Tammy decided he would be a permanent pack member and he would never have the fear of seeing her walk away from him again. Blu is the sheriff, judge, and punisher of the Hoardin' Huskies pack. He is also the snitch as he alerts Tammy when anything bad is happening. Blu has been a wonderful addition to the sanctuary.
Parker was surrendered at only four months old by a couple who bought him as Christmas present for each other even though they did not have the time to have a puppy because of their 16-hour workdays. As a result of Parker’s dog aggression and an oops litter with Tammy's personal pet (she went into heat two months early), Parker was DNA tested. Although he has less than 20%, his hybrid status, coupled with his temperament, led Tammy to the decision to keep Parker and his entire litter. Parker has been a welcome addition to the Hoardin' Huskies pack as he will help manage the pack. If there is tension, Tammy can tell him to stand between the dogs. When Tammy brings puppies home, Tammy will tell Parker to protect them, and he does! Parker has been a phenomenal addition.
