I own a siberian husky.
If you want to know about them, here goes, and this is pretty typical of most of the breed.
If he gets out, you are not catching him for at least three hours.
He will dig under the fence in the time it takes you to look at a bird in the sky.
He will jump over a fence before you even know what happened.
He will counter surf anything you leave out.
He will chew anything you leave out.
He will kill anything small that moves in front of him, including lizards, birds, cats, and other small dogs.
They shed twice a year, for 6 months at a time, including "Blowing their coat" which can happen once or twice a year, and consist of it snowing in your house for 2 weeks up to 3 months.
You will have hair in your food, on your work cloths, and your guest will take it home with them, no matter how hard you try to vaccum it up.
They have built in alarm clocks, you will most likely not sleep past 6:30 am on any given day.
They can not be left outside un supervised for any reason.
They will have a heat stroke if left outside in the summer.
They can die from heat if left out in the summer.
They will chew through crates, so even crate training does not always work.
They will eat your carpet, wood molding, and eat your bathroom doors.
They ar enot loyal, so dont expect to go on vacation, and come back to a animal that missed you.
They are not good gaurd dogs, and hence why many are stolen right out of peoples yards. They will go with anyone who has thier leash, not caring who it is.
They will chase anything that runs from them, including deer and moose. They will chase them until they cannot chase anymore, meaning you have a lost dog that is miles away from where you ar elooking for it.
Even with all this, they can make a great dog with the right circumstances. They need alot, and I mean alot, of excercise. I am not talking about 2 30 minute strolls across the block twice a day. I mean they need miles and miles. I take mine to the dog park once a week, doggy day care once a week, and the rest of the time he gets let outside to play, supervised for the most part, about every 30 minutes. Most do better in pairs, sometmes having two to keep each other company can curb some of the behavioral issues. I am not trying to scare anyone out of his breed, but make sure you do your research, have lots of time to devote to the dog, and adopt from a rescue, do not buy a puppy from a puppy mill.
And thats all I have to say about that.
