My sisters new dog

My sister and her boyfriend got a siberian husky last week!

He was a rehome from a guy who I guess just didn't want him anymore. They think he's around 5 years old, and his name is Jack. I guess the poor thing has gone through quite a few homes already and they suspect that he was abused somewhere along the line - but from what I hear he's a sweetheart and loves being around people. He's great with my niece and is already pretty well trained, which is a huge plus because I don't think my sister could have handled training a puppy along with taking care of her 1 and a half year old.

I have a picture of him with my sisters boyfriend, but the picture is pretty bad since it was taken with a camra phone.

not to be a buzz kill, but I hope they read up on the breed... Sure, people love huskies because they're "so pretty" but they are a troublesome breed.. they need lots of exersize, lots of attention and can almost never be let off the leash ... I speak from experience.. I have two, a 13 yr old (who hopped the fence til she was about 11) and a 4 year old who is neurotic and eats and destroys everything left on the floor.. im NOT saying that this dog will be like that, but most huskies are given up because their owners cant handle their destructive behavior and just want them for their blue eyes, and looking like a wolf....

Thanks for the warnings, but the dog is very well behaved and fits in great with their little family. I have actually done my reading up on the breed because I have wanted a husky for years, so I'm here to help her out if she needs any. My sister is a stay at home mom so she has tons of time to play with him, and her and the baby take him out for walks a couple of times a day - it's good for all three of them His prevous owners said that his only problem was that he has accidents in the house once in awhile, but he hasn't had a single accident since my sister got him, probably because she takes him outside so much. And he hasn't done anything destructive, he's a good boy. Plus my sister and the baby are both absolutly in love with him, he probably can't find the time to get into any trouble when they're both home giving him attention all day From what I hear, when he does finally get some alone time, all he wants to do is curl up and take a nap.

I have bred these dogs for 16 years, and what you say isnt true, i truly beleive that there are no bad dogs just bad dog owners, i am not trying to say you are a bad owner change .i have 6 f them aand i have never leashed or tied them they can go outside by themselves and they donot leave my yard, they are very loyal and will NOT destroy anything if you train the right. And besides if you do not plan on giving your dog excersize , attentionn you should not have a dog.I totally disagree with you. If your dogs are like that you abviously didnt train them properly. As you can tell i get defensive when ever somebody gives WRONG nformation on animals , especially huskies. And they do NOT have destructive behavior. You just have to train them, Why dont people undestand that! yoou can have a 7 puond yorkie and it will be distructive if it doesnt get the right training and the right amount of excersize! All of the information you have givin is false. YOu OBVIOUSLY do NOT know what you are talking about. I just cant get over the fact that you called huskies destucticve!:S:S

Breeding for temperament also has some "say" in how a dog acts. Don't take it too personally, everyone has different experiences. It's best though to know if a breed is known for being very active. Many dogs do end up in shelters simply because they are too active for the owner.

Many breeds are known for being "busy" which equals "destructive" if they get bored. It's not that she was knocking the breed, I think she was just trying to warn people that they are a lot of work. I'm sure she likes the breed since she has 2 of them
