Huskies are typical pack dogs and LOVE to be with their human and canine friends. We do not recommend keeping a husky as a single dog as they are often very lonely, get depressed and resort to destructive behaviour. Nevertheless occasionally we have huskies that are not good with other dogs and have to be re-homed alone – if you are interested in a single dog, please contact us and we will put you on our waiting list. Huskies usually get along with all kinds of dogs but seem to have a preference for their own breed – if you have ever seen a pack of huskies play with each other you understand what I am talking about, so we usually recommend that you keep huskies in pairs. Some huskies might not be good with small dogs – if they have not been socialized with them, they might see them as prey or they might simply play too rough and be to boisterous for small, fragile dogs – we can advise you which of our rescues can be re-homed to smaller doggie friends. Huskies have a very strong prey drive – in Siberia where the breed existed for thousands of years huskies were free to roam during the summer months and had to fend for themselves – they know how to hunt and kill and our modern huskies have not forgotten this part of their heritage. Huskies will hunt and kill livestock like chicken, sheep and goats as well as any other small animals that live in your household (cats, parrots, hamsters etc). Therefore we do not recommend re-homing a husky with any of the above. If you do have cats and still want to adopt a husky, we recommend that you consider a puppy or husky mix – while this is not a guarantee that the dog will be cat-friendly, it increases your chances significantly. In any case please never leave your cat and dog together unsupervised.
