We just go a husky on Saturday as a rescue, but it nearly tore my house up because I didn't know that it was a big NO-NO to leave them home alone for even an hour, so, after it chewed a football sized whole in my bathroom door, we got rid of it to someone who could actually care for her. She was a sweet dog and it was sad because I could literally pick her up and rock her to sleep.
Yikes. Yah, our husky we had since a puppy, so he knows the rules of the house, and he usually does pretty good. We baby gate all the areas of the house we don't want him to go to, and he stays out. We used to kennel him when we left, but he would just bark to no end and get even more stressed. I'm glad he didn't tare up anything.
Sad it didn't work out with you. I recommend buying them as a puppy. Training them with good habits.
Yeah, if anything we may just get a chihuahua, I think my wife is through with bigger sized dogs lol. Besides, I had three chihuahuas growing up and she has one, so we know how they are. But if were to get a husky, we'd definately get it as a puppy.
He's beautiful , and has blue eyes too! He's like a light-colored Demon from "Snow Dogs" . You must be very happy to have a lovely dog like that . Just don't ever let him get loose w/out an ID tag on. Dogs like that have a tendency to keep on going the moment they get out of the house/backyard. I can see where some of ur inspiration for ur werewolves came from . I luv doggies that look like wolves .
When I was 11, we got an Alaskan Malamute, & often malamutes & huskies are confused w/ one another b/c they look so similar. You can tell them apart, however, b/c malamutes are stockier, always have gold-colored eyes, shorter legs, & their ears are slightly smaller & more to the sides of their heads instead of on top. As you now know, Siberian Huskies were bred for speed when sled-racing, while malamutes were bred for freight. They're not as fast, but they last a very long time transporting stuff across the cold north (or south, if ur in Antarctica).
Our malamute's in heaven now, tho 3 yrs later we got another doggy that's part German Shepherd, part Husky, & u can definitely see the husky in her features. She's got the long legs, the shorter, rounded muzzle, some of the facial coloring of a husky, & she holds her tail up (though it doesn't quite curl like Link's does). Actually, if you're ever interested, I put some pictures of her in my gallery . [link]
