Thibault brings Bruno a coffee, a croissant, and a hug from Sora each day. He takes the same route each day past Bruno’s tent so that Sora and Bruno can meet.

Thibault shared the story on TikTok, which then went viral. He then realized that he could help Bruno! He opened a donation page that raised 5,800 Euros to help Bruno get off the street. Bruno was overwhelmed with gratitude but was also quite embarrassed.

A Challenging System

Despite the donated funds, Bruno remained on the street due to banking regulations that require a passport for withdrawal. Bruno had lost his passport and only had a copy. Thibault decided to help Bruno obtain his passport.

A Long Wait

While they wait for the passport to be ready, Thibault offers Bruno a place to stay, but Bruno refuses. In the interim, he provides Bruno with a new tent.

Final Steps to Stability

On the day that the passport arrived, Bruno is found weak and freezing, Thibault insisted that he came to stay at his house. Bruno dresses warmly, cleans up, and eventually secures his own accommodation. He is off the streets!

Origins and History

Huskies, originally bred by the Chukchi people of Siberia, are renowned for their endurance and ability to thrive in harsh, cold climates. They were primarily used as sled dogs, transporting goods across vast, snowy landscapes with remarkable efficiency.

Physical Characteristics

Huskies are medium-sized dogs, typically weighing between 35-60 pounds. They possess a thick double coat, erect triangular ears, and striking almond-shaped eyes, which can be blue, brown, or even one of each. Their appearance is both majestic and resilient.

Temperament and Behavior

Known for their friendly and outgoing nature, huskies are social and pack-oriented. They get along well with people and other dogs, making them excellent companions. However, their strong prey drive means they should be supervised around smaller animals.

Intelligence and Training

Huskies are highly intelligent and independent, often displaying a keen problem-solving ability. However, their intelligence can also make them stubborn. Consistent, patient training and mental stimulation are essential to keep them engaged and well-behaved.

Exercise and Care

Huskies require substantial exercise to maintain their physical and mental health. They thrive on activities like running, hiking, and sledding. Their dense coat needs regular grooming to manage shedding, especially during seasonal changes when they shed more heavily.
