Siberian Huskies are not the breed for everyone, make sure you know what you are getting into before you take home that beautiful puppy or dog! Please check out the Siberian Husky Club Of America's page before you consider a Siberian for yourself.
Be careful who you buy a Siberian from. A breeder should ask you multiple questions about how you plan to care for your Siberian and will mention all the downfalls of the breed. Responsible breeders screen dogs used in breeding programs for genetic diseases found in the breed and will always provide a home for dogs they produce no matter the reason or age so they do not end up in shelters or rescue. They do not breed for particular coat or eye colors but for correct coat and healthy eyes.
When considering a puppy ask for eye and hip health clearance information on both parents. The breeder should be able to offer you SHOR or CERF (eye) and OFA (hip) numbers. Visit a breeder's home and meet their adult dogs before committing to buying a puppy. You should like the way the adults look and act, your puppy will be an adult longer than a pup. Pay careful attention to how the dogs are housed and cared for. Remember, puppies are a lot of work.
There are many Siberian Huskies in rescue organizations looking for good homes. Before you decide you must have a puppy, consider adopting an adult Siberian from a local rescue. With an adult what you see is what you get and you do not need to go through the puppy stage. There are several rescue groups in WA state click here for a list.
Besides adults in rescue young adult Siberians who have retired from showing or working can be found available to good homes. These re-homes or career change dogs make good pets for those who want a well adjusted companion but do not wish to go through the puppy stage. Occasionally we have or know of young adults looking for loving companion homes. Feel free to contact us if you would like information on dogs that may be available.
