    I have never owned one, but I've looked into what kind of dogs I'd like and such. Do some research on huskies before jumping in, they're bred to be working dogs who like cold, so make sure they're the breed for you. I've read that they can be stubborn and frustrating. GORGEOUS dogs though

    they can be pretty vindictive too! I heard a story from a customer (when I worked at a pet store) who had one, he was potty training his and when he smacked his hiney for peeing on the carpet, the husky later went (right in front of his owner) and peed in his boot..not on, but IN...I thought it so hilarious! Shows you how smart they are too.

    They're also runners and climbers.

    They're very high strung. It takes a while to train them. And yes, they are vindictive. If you make them mad, they will pee on your floor while looking right at you.

    Our husky is turning 10 in November.

    We want a husky too, but never have had one. You may also be interested in an Alaskan Malamute, my granny had one and she was a wonderful dog and they look similiar to the husky.

    I grew up with huskies! My ggpa used to breed them for dog shows. They are gorgeous dogs! And we never never never had any temperment problems with ours. But we also got them from my ggpa who bred high quality show huskies if maybe their temperment was breed into them or what. But they were sweet!! Frostie we got when I was 3 and he became my protector instantly! He was a retired showdog that my ggpa had breed several times so he was pretty old when we got him. But he was my pillow and my best friend. We have video of me when I was little laying on top of him as if he was my pillow and Hayley we got when my sister was 2. She was rambunctious and spoiled rotten! She acted like the princess and was not so nice to frosty (who was her ggpa) But she was still sweet! The only problem i remember we had with her was the digging and she was a master escape artist! Other than that, they were awesome awesome dogs! That is the dog me and Toby plan on getting once we are done having babies becuase having their hair shedding soooooo bad like it does around a crawling baby is not so much fun

    Oh and as far as the extreme heat goes. We live in San Diego and thats where the dogs were all breed, so I think it depends on your area and where the breeder is. Our dogs did great in the san diego sun!

    I've read a lot about them, and I've worked with them before. I want one so bad, but it's so mean to get one in a hot climate.
