    It's never a good idea just to get a dog
    based on their looks. Especially a husky.
    I hope you did some research on them.

    They can be wonderfuls dogs, but need a lot of work.
    Best thing to remember is that never let your guard down.
    What kind of things would you like to know ?

    Congrats!
    A few things I found out the hard way:
    They dig, dig, dig, oh yeah amd they dig.
    They are "stubborn" or I guess a better way to describe it is that they don't do it because it makes you happy they do it because they see a point. (NILIF training works wonders for them)
    A few things we knew about:
    They shed
    They love to run and need plenty of space
    They can pull
    They don't eat as much as you would guess for their size

    Our sibe was a rescue. She was abandoned at animal control and was on her last day. They had located her owners and they refused to reclaim her. She was mostly likely abandoned because she has bad habits and I suppose they guessed she would train herself. When she came home she jumped, mouthed, knocked you over, extremely stubborn, no training, aggresive, bullied. She was horribly behaved. It has been time consuming and after lots of persistence she is getting better. still working on it though. Have you ever owned sibes before?
