    Ava, Zuko & Buddha, had a fun day digging holes and playing chase, they took a break long enough to let me take a couple of pics!!

    I got Marley as an extremely cute gorgeous pale grey and white 12 week old pup (that's him now in my avatar) - but that is not why I got him - I became his 4th owner! He is now 2 years old - extremely high maintenance (and not just his long coat), and has so far eaten his way through a sofa and a chair. Most of the rest of the house is husky proof as I have an older Utonagan (husky/Malamute) - who did over Β£3,500 of damage by age 3 (he is now 12). I had a fairly good idea of what I was letting myself in for because of Lunar - but Marley is like Lunar on steroids. You will never tire him out once he gains adulthood - and one other thing, a bored husky is something to fear, if you do not keep them amused they will amuse themselves........................................... and its usually very expensive (as I know only too well). If you want a dog to be happy at home alone for hours at a time, - get a Lab, if you work and he is alone - you will come home to a wrecked house and looking for a new home for him inside 12 months. Having said all that - if you are prepared to put in the time at home and at least 3 walks a day - preferably of 3/4 of an hour or more each one once he has grown up, never being able to let him off lead unless in a really secure dog park, spending time keeping him occupied and amused when not walking him, you will end up with the best companion you could ever wish for.

    We are a very passionate bunch of husky owning crazy [emoji12] dog owners who love there animals more than most people. Nmayi: my advice would be like most of the above. Read as much as possible about the breed. Their well behaved and cute as puppies but this does change and they become hard work. I didn’t release how much until I got mine. He has taken over my life (for the better) he cost a huge amount of money to keep and look after (but worth it) and he is only listens which he wants too. Have you considered getting a rescue instead. This way at least your know what it will look like when older. This would mean diving in the deep end. What ever you decide, the members of the club will help with any problems or issues you may come up against. Just remember most people on here have owned the breed for a long time and know what they’re talking about. Just ignore everything it say as I am still a newbie [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    Just had a pat. She definitely still has way too much padding. I'll do more rib tests once she gets below 30 kg; still a couple of kilos to go. We try to limit high impact exercises until she gets her weight down, but we let her run when she leads us into it on walks! Yeah. Her previous family loved her the wrong way and overfed her -- from her old vet records she was 42.8 kg at her heaviest! Unlike other huskies she's also not too picky an eater, only pickier the time she eats than what she eats. We know we can get her back in shape, and the forums will see her progress!

    It's so funny they are so much alike, Zuko is a little cuddle monster but mostly when he's tired or if you go out in the dog yard and sit on the porch he will come up and snuggle into you for pets!!

    That is just too cute!!! πŸ€—πŸ•Now I just want to squeeze Zuko! πŸ’• He is like my Diego. 😍 He has been doing that since he was 12 weeks old. LolπŸ˜‚

    OMG...it is so funny you say that because Zuko hides his toys in the pool, Ava won't go in the water and Buddha hates water logged toys lol...I taught Zuko to jump in the pool when the other dogs were being to rough when he was little, so now that is his escape, he will even lay down in there and put his head over the side, sometimes he puts his face in the water and blows bubbles hahaha

    It's funny my Jonah loved playing fetch, he would play all day if he could, he also loved to swim he was more like a retriever than Buddha haha... Buddha will play but I have to initiate the game and when he brings it back he wants me to chase him around, so the game doesn't last long, where as Jonah would usually initiate the game and when he brought the ball back he would throw it to you...miss him so much!!

    Aw Jo, I feel for the both of you Luna, who we got at 6 years old, howled, panted, soiled indoors and would be up at the window if we went out without her. We've had her 3 months now and perhaps as an older dog she is very much better, we did all the usual of leaving the radio on, going in and out several times without actually leaving and then crept out the back door quietly without alerting her. I think the dog flap has helped a lot too, she spends a lot of time outside now which seems to make her happy. I'm sure you'll get her calmed because you want to, as a rehomer of a dog past the cute stage you obviously care about the dog which is more than seems to be the case of the previous owners. My daughter has a Merle Collie with blue eyes, he's pretty high maintenance and quite excitable, very complex dog. I find him difficult to gauge because I can't read his eyes at all. He could be about to rip my throat out or just giving me a look of love, I've no idea. Luna's brother is completely different to her, he has the very dark to black coat with big blue eyes.

    Thank you! Ava is a rescue from Alabama, and Buddha is a rescue from NJ...but Zuko is from the breeder I got my last three huskies from, he kinda reminds me of my Jonah Boo who passed away 2 yrs ago!

    Just to add, research is absolutely key to having a husky, as already mentioned, and commitment to caring for this breed, a lack of both is the reason they end up in rescues. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    what luna-tic said! im not sure how long it would take to firm up but since its a puppy i wouldnt imagine at taking longer than a couple weeks. if its doesnt harden up try adding a little bit more bone. on raw zen eliminates once maybe twice a day. much less often than kibble fed, smaller and 100% less stinky! makes for clean up a little more tolerable Sent from my LG-H873 using Husky Owners mobile app

    Mine do that from time to time. Usually only lasts a few days. Has he been neutered? If he as not, he will refuse to eat as long as there is a female in heat in the area he smells. If he has, it is just a husky thing. Nothing to worry about. They are bred to last a long time on small amounts of food.

    Amy was owner surrendered at 9 months old, probably after she had grown out of the cute puppy and into a big handful!!! I’m convinced this has caused her separation anxiety which I am working on but still cant leave her alone in the house for more than 10 minutes, she doesnt destroy things just spins in circles, howls and gets very worked up and upset ( I’ve videoed her and its awful to see) Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    @VICKIE~ I think you are doing AWESOME with MAYO, especially since you've only had her 6weeks!! Some times, all that dogs need is a change in their food diet alone, which you are doing. It sounds like MAYO is getting plenty of activity daily. I can tell you really care & love your MAYO Baby and are doing everything possible to correctly help her. You have a huge heart VICKIE!! MAYO is a beautiful gal and is so lucky she has a great Mum like you!! [emoji171][emoji92][emoji171][emoji274] ~ANGIE, ARMANI & ALINAH~

    you can not tell if a pups eyes will stay blue, as its a genetic and age thing, also colour of fur can change as well a person i know brought a black pup when he saw it at 4 weeks now a few months old its grey also before you buy a pup are you sure you have the time for one let alone a husky, have you researched the breed, do you understand you will never be able to let the dog of the lead, that you will need a 6 foot fence at least in the garden. Taking on a husky is not an easy job for a dedicated home, its not a breed i would let a first time owner

    I think it's perfectly fine if someone wants blue or brown or green or purple eyes, etc. They may want a show dog with specific details, and really, it's their business not ours. In addition, there are too many negatives on here and too many people having pet peeves. So let's just stay POSITIVE and HAPPY ... Sounds good to me!!πŸ€— Always remember, "The heart wants what it wants."[emoji171] **WELCOME ABOARD NMAYI** ~ALL THINGS ARE PAWSIBLE~ ~ANGIE, ARMANI & ALINAH~

    Yeah. She's standing quite relaxed. I think the biggest difference, other than being much bigger, is her shorter neck. Maybe that's the reason she looks like she's constantly hunching / hunting and confuses half the dogs. I haven't been able to find much information on particular health issues for dogs with shorter necks. We're watching her weight and started her on joint supplement powder to reduce her chance of getting arthritis. She's a house pet so there's no working schedule per se. At the minimum she gets half an hour of yard play with us in the morning before we go to work, has indoor / outdoor access through a doggy door all day and night, 1-hour brisk walk and dog park every night before dinner. She's already housetrained from the previous home so the main thing we're trying to get her to understand currently is "brushing is good!" Haha. Her previous family might never have brushed her! She's fed human-grade fish and/or meat (sometimes raw sometimes cooked), a bit of grain-free Australian-brand kibble (vet recommended dry for her teeth), and fresh vegetables (again sometimes raw sometimes cooked / lightly microwaved) each night. No table scraps. Treats are kangaroo tail when we have to head off to work in the morning; other times she gets a piece or two of kibble, apples, frozen blueberries, etc healthy treats. She loooooves fish and kangaroo. Such a mummy's girl! Yeah! Hopefully her posture would improve when she loses the excess weight! But she does seem to have a proportionally shorter neck.

    You should never feed cooked bones to a dog - cooked chicken bones splinter and can get stuck in the pipe leading from the mouth to the stomach - I would get him checked. Please only feed raw bones - My dogs have been fed raw chicken bones for 12 years with no problems. I really hope he is just on an 'off feeding' period - Marley does this sometimes. However better to be safe ...............

    I agree with everyone sometimes huskies just go off their food for a few days. [emoji3] Bones don't need cooked all of that is better raw. [emoji4] He is handsome [emoji4] Sent from my Pixel using Husky Owners mobile app
