Any body know much about this breed? I've always thought they were a beautiful breed & someone local around here has for free, siberian husky mix puppies. I've always loved the ones with blue eyes or at least one blue eye.

Anyone have one or know about their care or temperament?

Hi LightingBolt:

I don't know the breed very well. I've never heard of temperment problems, but like any dog bred for a cold climate, hot summers can affect them.

I had a large GermanShepard that got very 'wooly' at the end of winter and suffered during hot summers. Grooming, lots of water and reducing his exposure to extreme summer temps kept him a big puppy all his life.

Good luck in your choice. :)

I used to raise them and I loved the one's I had. They like to talk to you and it's soooo funny to hear. The look they give you while they talk is sooo serious.

I had a warm dog house for him in a large kennel and where did he sleep during the winter? On top with his tail over his face, goof.
He died two years ago and it still hurts. Here's a picture that was a fluke but means a lot to me now.

That's a beautil pic, Mar! I know what you mean... I had a border collie named Santana that I had for 15 years since she was a pup, a beautiful wonderful dog that I had to have put down about 2 years ago due to her growing severe health problems of old age. She was the best dog that I ever had & miss her terribly. Haven't had another since... but now am thinking maybe it's time.

Thanks for sharing... :)

Dogs are great for company and they love you no matter what.

Let us know what you decide. :)

They are beautiful docile dogs, when I was little I delivered papers, the labs and siberian huskies never bothered me, they would walk up calmly and stay at your side while you did your thing just wanting some attention. You could leave the gate open and they wouldn't even think of running. Unlike the annoying yappy little ankle biting dogs that people buy because they are "friendly", *pfft* tiny dogs suck, they are too small and to damn hyper.

The best dog I have known is my cousins though (well uncles technically). It's just a mut, but it is the size and colour of a collie. That dog is the absolute best dog I have ever known, so calm, and VERY VERY friendly, but not in a "jump on you and drool all over your clothes and face kind of friendly".

It would have to be a very small sled, but more then likely they'd put their tails and nose up in the air and walk away. LOL

BTW, has anyone else seen that Verizon commercial about the 100 head of Dachshund instead of oxen???? It's hysterical. At the end they yell "stampede" and all these little dachshund's run past. :D :D :D

That's why dogs rule. They are obedient, loyal, and fun.

lol..glad to see i'm not the only one here who doesnt like little yappy dogs. My sister-in-law has a long-haired miniature pomeranian...she brings it with her when she comes to visit and she lives a mile away!

I do like huskys. They are beautiful dogs and rank right up there with my favorite: German Sheperds.

but for the record.....candy knows best. Cats rule and dogs drool!

I quite like cats but I love dogs. I remember trying to teach our cat Sam to jump through my sisters hoop. If looks could kill!!!
They way he sneared and looked down at me, he was older than me and he shouldn't have treated me so, no manners.
Then it was our dogs turn. Straight through the hoop, lands on his neck like it's nearly broke, jumps up barking and tail wagging, straight onto me, knocking me over and licks my face worried that he's hurt me.
How could I not like that.
Where's the cat?
Eating the dogs food, that's where - traitor!!!
Now I'm older of course I can see that cat's are clever, and in a way, quite cool. Still crap at jumping through hoops though.
I think those huskies are beautiful looking dogs. Bet they'd go through the hoop with a triple salko and pike!
