COLORADO SPRINGS — An overwhelmed breeder turned in 50 purebred Siberian huskies to shelters in Colorado.

The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak region took 14 of them in.

The puppies are healthy but have low socialization skills and are afraid of people.

The shelter will be working to build their confidence and trust in people.

"We're big fans of treating each dog like an individual, especially the behaviorally challenged animals," said Maya McFeeley, an animal care technician, "they're always going to work at their own pace, and it really helps to be relaxed about that as well and not try and push them into doing anything."

Nine of the dogs are the facility in Colorado Springs, six are in Pueblo.

They are not up for adoption yet.
