Before you get a husky do your research. They are very high energy, escape artists, high prey drive (chickens, cats, small dogs and yes even livestock) and need training and exercise. If you are renting find out from your landlord if you can have a husky. What will you do with if you have to move? Giving up the dog should not be the first and only option. Are you getting the dog because your kids want it? Kids go off to college and the parents are left with a dog they don’t want. Are you considering starting a family? Will you want the dog after baby has arrived? These are just several of many reasons why so many huskies are being dumped daily at shelters or on the streets. The number of folks who have to rehome their husky has also jumped considerably.
NorSled does it’s best, but we are a small organization with limited funds and we simply cannot take all the huskies in Northern California shelters or help all who contact us because they have to rehome their husky. Getting a dog is a commitment for the life of the dog. It is not a toy, it is not an object that can be dumped. Please make a serious decision! With that said we have some wonderful dogs available on our available tab!
We have several dogs kenneled that would do so much better in foster homes. This would also help them get adopted faster. We have a few that need to be an only dog, they in particular need help developing better social skills. Please consider becoming a foster parent to one of our lovely dogs.
