Beautiful, fun, full of personality and a little bit crazy. Those are some of the ways I describe Siberian Huskies. They are beautiful dogs and that is what people notice first but if you are around them for very long you will discover their true personality. All pets have their own quirks and preferences but husky lovers know that they are a breed apart, unlike any other dog you have ever owned.
This is Bear, he was our first husky. As a general rule they are very friendly dogs and not particularly possessive or aggressive. Bear was an exception to this rule; he was very territorial over his yard and us with everyone except one of my cousins and her kids. He loved Kristina and we never had to worry about them together.
The next husky we got was Bandit. Unfortunately, he had an issue come up when he was only 8 months old where he became unable to control the lower half of his body. In two weeks time, he went from playful puppy to not being able to walk or control his bladder function. We had to put him to sleep and it was definitely the hardest thing I’ve had to do in my life. He was an exceptionally good dog.
Currently we have two, Maverick & Haley. This is the first time we have had two huskies at the same time and it is not for the faint of heart. We are in the middle of a snowstorm in Texas with all the shedding happening at our house here at the beginning of April! But I will also tell you it is worth it. Even when they are being the most crazy, they will make you smile. They are extremely loving and loyal and if you’re lucky they will “talk” to you, too!
Please come back later for “the rest of the story” when I will share a little more about Haley and a group of special people who #SaveMoreHuskies.
