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

Yep, definitely try to figure out how much stimulation this dog needs, as the Northern Breeds in general need alot of mental/physical stimulation.

I would just get it confirmed that the dog is good with cats, as there is always the possibility of a prey drive.

Also bear in mind that you may never be able to allow this dog offleash.
