Tell him don't unless he's prepared to buy 2. In fact just tell him don't in general.

They are fucking worthless. You can't really train them to do anything. They will run regardless of how well you think they are trained. They will escape from anything. They aren't good guard dogs. They will destroy you're entire house until the age of 2 1/2, and smaller parts afterwards. Most of them don't do well as an only dog.

All of this said, I love mine and would be hard pressed to find a dog that deals with kids so well. My youngest husky actually helped teach my son how to walk. They don't mind having ears/fur pulled and being crawled on. Most of this is due to their origins in Siberia where hostile dogs were put down as pups.

If your friend doesn't have a yard or a lot of time for walks then he can count on having the house leveled. For real. Energy bursts are similar to a cat if not properly exercised.

Buy a furminator and get used to the hair. It's part of the package.

Before hitting the breeders, look in the pounds. Lots of people buy them because they look cool with little or no idea what they are in for. The result is a ton of 1 1/2 - 2 year old huskies in the system.

My 6 year old came from a breeder in southern VA. I think it was called Arctic Shores. They actually raise their dogs in a social environment with the family and not a puppy mill.

Also, don't stand between them and the door when it snows.

Gorgeous, how do you think a husky would do with say a yellow lab. Was thinking about waiting until the lab is grown up more before getting a husky...Also wanted to wait until get a more permanent residence. I have a big yard now, but its not guaranteed to stay that way in the next year or so...

They are good with other dogs, especially larger dogs. The one pictured above is partners in crime with my wife's chihuahua-pug mix but sometimes she plays a bit too rough.

The only things they generally don't like are cats but there are exceptions to every rule.

My ex and I had a kitten for a few weeks who would routinely pick on my younger husky because she knew she could get a reaction. One day the cat was hauling ass down the hallway and hit the living room at full tilt. Chasey (husky) was walking into the room from the kitchen and the cat tried to jump her since she was unable to stop. The resulting collision rolled the dog and almost knocked the cat out.

Much lol'ing ensued.

hahaha yea Ace (the pup) and Leo (the cat) play all the time, Leo acts like he doesnt like it, but i swear he bothers Ace on purpose to get a rise out of him. Leo always comes into the room, struts all seductively, will purposefully wag his tail infront of Ace (never wags his tail other wise) so he chases after it... this one time, ace was charing at him, and leo straight up jumped over his head and ace was just like, shit whered he go?!?! Straight outta matrix, looked pretty tight...its so hilarious watching their interaction...

+1 on needing a yard, that they will run, no matter what and that there's an extremely high chance the house will get torn up.

On that note, if you find a husky thru an adoption place or shelter and the temperament is good, go for it.

If your friend wants to check out a reputable adoption place, check Roxie's Fund. Sara and I have adopted 3 Rottie's from them.

Good luck.
