Animals are amazing, and their influence on people can be immeasurable. Mainly dogs can help us a lot through all tstruggles we experience in our lives. The friendship with animals is the strongest bond in this world, and this story will teach us many important things.
Meet Ellie and Atlas
These are Ellie and Atlas; on the first sight just regular Huskies. Well, for many of us they are probably nothing more than two beautiful dogs, but for their mom, these dogs are special friends who helped her get over hard periods of her life and overcome the difficulties she had before she met them.

Well, it is the time to introduce Melanie, a beautiful woman who loves her Siberian huskies and has a big heart. We asked her if we can share her story on our page, and she was happy not only to approve that but also to help us to do this right. She suffers from the depressive disorder, and besides that, she has a diagnosis of clinical anxiety. But, she is doing fine now, all thanks to wonderful dogs.

The Joy of Having Partners
It is not easy to make yourself go out of the room during the illness if you don’t have support. Ellie and Atlas were those who made Melanie get out of the world which was making her attacks frequent. Their need to run around, explore the nature and play was something like a turning point for her. The energy which dogs reflected was adamant and enough even for those around them, like Melanie.

An Interesting Surprise
Real friends know how to show their love. Melanie got a hand-made portrait of Ellie and Atlas as a present from her friend while she was recovering from surgery. Is there something better she could get in such a moment? We don’t think so.

Adirondack High Peaks
Happy faces on this photo are something that motivates people. This was just one of their hiking adventures, but their goal is to visit Adirondack High Peaks at least twice a year. In this way, they will try to hike around on all 46 peaks. Do you think the dogs understand this goal?

The Long Hiking
This is how Ellie and Atlas look after very long hiking, more than 9 miles. Melanie said they had their boots for around half-way, but they were also carrying their packs all the way. Do you know that the dogs helped her to lose her weight? Physical activity is crucial, and when you live a healthy life because of your pets, you should be thankful from the bottom of your heart.

Time for a Break
Although Ellie and Atlas are very active and they enjoy their life, sometimes they need to have a break. Nothing is as good as when you can lie down in the swing and enjoy every second. These guys are so cute when you see them yawn, aren’t they?

Doing Everything Together
Ellie was the first who came in Melanie’s life, and she was an initiator of her psychiatric healing. Atlas came a bit later and showed her how to accept the differences in her life. Together, they are a perfect team for different adventures. They are not only hiking during a free time, but they also go for canicross, mushing, and bike riding together.

They will help you to become a part of this cruel world again and live your life as a real fighter.
