We adopted Casey as a puppy at the shelter. DNA test results show he is at least 75% siberian husky. He is now 9 months old. He is a great dog, but has tons of energy! I ditto what has already been said: don't have off-leash, loves to dig and chew, likes to chase things, etc.. Casey does well with our cats (well, he does like to chase them if they run...but he just licks them if he catches them). Casey is very smart, and has learned most commands well. The problem we still have with him is his pulling during walks- this dog wants to be a sled dog, lol!
