Read this before you decided its the breed for you. Im telling you 4 of my sibes are shelter dogs given up because the owners were not prepared for the husky attitude and manner. And so they became unruley and problem dogs thrown to the side when they became to much. Unfortunatly i cannot save them all. Read both these lists to know if this is the breed for you. If you want a dog who... Is medium-sized and furry, with a wolfish appearance Is free-spirited and playful Is athletic and agile and loves the great outdoors, especially in cold weather Thinks that running full-speed, pulling carts and sleds, and/or carrying a backpack on a mountain hike is his purpose in life Is usually good-natured with strangers and sociable with other dogs A Siberian Husky may be right for you. If you don't want to deal with... Vigorous exercise requirements Rowdiness and exuberant jumping, especially when young Massive destructiveness and howling when bored, left alone too much, or not exercised enough Strong instincts to chase and grab anything that runs Escaping from your yard in search of adventure Strong-willed mind of his own, requiring a confident owner who can take charge Heavy shedding A Siberian Husky may not be right for you.
