I am considering adopting a beautiful, sweet female husky/shepherd mix, 8 months old. I have experience with GS but not with Huskies. The shelter tells me she is very smart (figured out how to open doors) and that this breed is notorious for escaping fences. I also read they can be very destructive. I want to make a decision with my head and not just my heart. Can anyone provide any personal experiences (good or bad) with having a Husky? Thank you.
