    Socializing suggestions for feral huskies

    Well hello folks,

    My name is Tanya and I'm a 34 year old nurse and husky owner. I love my 13 year old mischievous huskrat to bits. She has been challenging but I wouldn't trade her for the world. I am very much partial to challenging and intelligent breeds.

    Recently, several dozen huskies that were more or less entirely feral were captured and are now in the care of the Humane Society. I volunteered to work with them. The lion's share of the adults are distressed and distrustful. They are in kennels in pair and spend much of their time crouching/pacing/barking (but not lunging, snarling, or snapping). A handful of them will warily sniff my hand and occasionally take a treat. I feel terrible for them. So I'd like some feedback from any folks that have experience with dogs that are essentially totally unsocialized.

    -What suggestions would you offer for working with unsocialized dogs that are now in captivity?
    -Are there any resources or other threads that might be helpful?
    -Do any of you know of any rescue operations/sanctuaries/reserves that are well equipped to handle feral adult huskies?

    I think the question is that if these feral dogs can be socialised, what is going to happen to them?

    And are there sufficient homes to take on "several dozen huskies that were more or less entirely feral" [your words]?
