New member/new dog owner :)

Hi Guys,

New to the forum so thought I'd say hi!

Me and the OH adopted our 2.5 yr old husky girl Kiba last month, she was originally a street dog from Taiwan that was saved from death row by a local rescue group and flown over. She has settled in so well!
We have each had family dogs in our childhood but Kiba is our first dog as a couple, and we absolutely love having a dog around again!
So far so good we've got her house trained and she's really good on her leash, just need to work on her prey drive which is quite high, presumably form her time on the streets.

Hope to share tips and suggestions form other dog owners

Welcome to the board, s_c! We'd love to see some pics of Kiba if you have any to share.
