Do Your Research

What you saw and what you could live with may be two totally different things.

You may have seen Huskies running across your television screen or maybe on the big screen. What you saw and what you could live with may be two totally different things. It is extremely important for anyone looking to add a canine companion to their family to first research the breed you are considering.

Some may say, "Ahhh...a dog is a dog." Well, maybe that person has never owned a Siberian Husky. This breed isn't necessarily the breed for everyone, but then again there are thousands of dogs out there that the same can be said for. The important thing that should be understood by anyone looking to own a dog is that they are much like finding a human mate for life. It is not a relationship that should be taken lightly. When you are considering adding a canine to your family you should be choosy about the personality you plan to live with for many years to come—we are talking about personality, not looks, here. When a husky digs up your garden, you won't be thinking much about how pretty they are at that moment in time.

If it is a Siberian Husky you have been thinking about, you have come to the right place! In these pages we hope you will learn more about the Siberian Husky and whether they are the right breed for you. To the right, we have also added some recommended reading.

Siberian Huskies are hard to resist, with their joyful demeanor, exuberance, friendliness, striking appearance, and incredibly beautiful smile. However, as appealing as these traits may be, Huskies are not the breed for every dog owner. After learning more about the Siberian, many have decided to only admire from afar, while others can't get enough of them. Many Siberian Huskies have become strays, ended up in dog shelters, injured or worse on the road, become the neighborhood nuisance, or abused and mistreated because the owner did not understand the breed. For these reasons, it is important for any potential owner to learn about the typical traits of the Siberian Husky before entering the challenging commitment of living with one.
