Meet Melee!

Now that you've met Shanuk, we'd like to introduce you to our "little guy".....Echo's Melee (Melee or "Monkey" for the cutest moments).  For those that diligently followed us in the past, you know it would take a very special bundle of energy to bestow a name linked so closely to our beloved Echo!  This guy seemed to fit the bill.  He arrived when he was 18 weeks old, filthy, terrified, and straight out of a not-so-pleasant puppy mill.  Although we had fostered numerous Siberians of all ages, this was our first experience with a puppy mill refugee.  It was sobering and heartbreaking.  Melee came to us completely unsocialized with absolutely no self-confidence or the typical canine skills you'd expect even at that young age.  He was a scrawny little guy who trembled nonstop for the first two days.  With our pack's help, he began to realize life wasn't so bad.  His charming, affectionate personality began to emerge after a couple weeks and he was cuter than cute.


It didn't take long for Melee to become completely enamoured with big brother/surrogate Mommy Shanuk.  Wherever Shanuk went, Melee followed.....






Today Melee is a perpetually happy, confident young man who's ready to take on the world!  Which is a good thing because we've got some important jobs for him in the near future.  :)
