Zarya in her new home, with her new family!

For more information 

My name is Zarya. It is Russian and means sunshine. My new foster mom named me that because she says it is a pretty name, like me, and because my coat is a lovely golden color. My name used to be Timber; I like my new name much better. I am two years old and am a husky/GSD mix. At the foster home:  

Foster mom is slowly teaching us proper doggie etiquette for being inside. She brags that we have only had one potty accident, but she did scold us when we tried to mark the couch as being ours.

We have learned that the kitties inside are our friends, so we donít chase them when we are in the house. We still want to chase the kitties outside, but are slowly

getting used to being with Lucy outside without trying to chase her. We have another kitty friend, Andy, who isnít afraid of us. He likes to play with us. Sometimes we let him eat with us, but most of the time we tell him to go away because it is our food. There are lots of kitties in our house. I guess mom fosters them, too.

When our new mom and dad are gone at work we stay in a nice big comfy kennel where we can watch our neighbors. We sit

on top of our dog houses so we have a nice view. We enjoy watching everyone and are very quiet. We donít bark at them. Mom says people like it when we are quiet.

We have two favorite neighbors Ė our new boxer friend next door and a really nice man who gives us meat scraps. Mom says he is a butcher Ė I donít know what that means. I just know that he gives us tasty treats. Nadia is afraid of him, but heís a nice man. Iím not afraid of new people; I just want to sniff at them and say ďHi!Ē and get petted. We like to run up and down

he fence with our boxer friend. He is nice, too.

Mom and dad take us for walks, and we really like that. We love all the new smells and all the new things to see. We are very active and busy little dogs so after being in the kennel for a while we get a little bored. We really enjoy it when they let us out and we can sniff and explore in the big doggie run. There are always new things to smell. We like being in the house and really like sleeping in our new doggie room, but we still like to be outside. We learned a new
thing at momsí Ė that we can jump! We are so excited that we learned to jump over these things called fences. Mom doesnít think it is so great, though. She has to be with us now when we are outside. She said we need a six foot fence Ė whatever that means! Mom is proud of us, though, because we donít jump on people and we donít jump on furniture.

Iím not shy like my friend Nadia. Iím a happy girl and am learning lots of new things. I would like to come and visit you, too, if you are looking for a new friend. You will have to be patient my mom says, and have a sense of humor, and only use positive training. I think I like that. Will you come and see me and let me be the sunshine in your life?

Timber has a chance for a new life with a new name (Zarya).  She came to rescue with her litter of 9 puppies.  She was part of 43 dogs that came at one time.  Zarya is ready for a family of her own now, and we'd love to tell you all about her.  She is in a nice foster home, worm and well cared for. 

 All of her puppies have found homes.
