Questions about Huskies and adopting in general

Hello! First time poster. I found this forum while reading through different forums for advice. I am going to meet an Alaskan Husky tomorrow. He is three years old, and just doesn't want to be a sled dog. He lives with 5 other sled dogs, and he just doesn't want to pull. His current owner says he does good with cats and kids who are calm. What I'd like is any advice on either stuff to ask or to look for when I go see this dog. I have had huskies in the past (well a husky/malamute mix breed) and grew up with large dogs. Still, any advice is appreciated. Thanks. :D

What a cutie! Sounds like a good begining. If he's anything like my Sibe, you'll be greatful about the way he likes to keep clean and is repulsed by doggy poo.

Ilya was timid and skittish when I first brought him home. I had to build a relationship with him and it was important for him to be underfoot until I could trust him. I talk to my husky when he's upset and massage his face. Maybe you could hand feed him his kibbles and see if he warms up a bit.
