Bear is approx 5 months old, birthday is 4/19/19. We rescued him from a breeder.
This is NOT a breed for everyone. Couch potatoes need not apply.
If you want a dog who…
** Is medium-sized and furry, with a wolfish appearance
** Is free-spirited and playful
** Is athletic and agile and loves the great outdoors, especially in cold weather
** Thinks that running full-speed, pulling carts and sleds, and/or carrying a backpack on a mountain hike are his purposes in life
** Is usually good-natured with strangers and sociable with other dogs
A Siberian Husky may be right for you.
If you don’t want to deal with…
** Vigorous exercise requirements
** Rowdiness and exuberant jumping, especially when young
** Massive destructiveness and howling when bored, left alone too much, or not exercised enough
** Strong instincts to chase and grab anything that runs, i.e. cats
** Escaping from your yard in search of adventure
** Strong-willed mind of his own, requiring a confident owner who can take charge
** Heavy shedding
A Siberian Husky may not be right for you.
An ideal family for Bear would be with someone who has experience with the breed, or large breed experience, an active person or family, and a fenced in yard unless you are committed to walking him several times a day.
This is a breed who, as stated above, WILL destroy things if he is bored or not exercised enough..
