  1. Both Echo and Darwin were rescues.

    Echo's original owner was a housebound old lady in her 80's. She was not socialised and was very protective of her owner, the social services called the RSPCA to do something about the dog as they couldn't get near the old lady to clean and feed her. We found her fostered with a lady who had a large pack of German Shepherds, She was a skinny shivering nervous wreck quivering at the back of the kennel scared of any interaction with humans or other dogs. We spent 6 weeks going up every weekend and just sitting in her kennel gaining her trust until she came to us and let us touch her. She was 18 months old and her legs didn't know how to work together to run after a ball. She became our gobby, overprotective girly. A loving pack leader who would protect her family to her last bark. We had her for 9 years until bowel and hip problems sent her over the rainbow bridge in November 2017.

    Darwin was living from a pup with a young couple in a flat in London, left alone all day and not enough exercise they soon discovered that a bored husky is a destructive husky. He had stripped his tail almost down to skin from stress. We took him on when he was a year old, 9 years later he's still a strong handsome boy who loves his walks and gets super excited when he gets to see his extended family.

  2. Just look through the members media section and see all the different types of Husky.

    I'm sure you'll see some that look like moon.

    Sarah and Marc (owners of the forum) currently are fostering Kevin/Khaos (we call him Kevin they call him Khaos lol) he looks similar to Moon

    and member Guinnesman (Phil) had a young boy named Logan (RIP) who was a short haired white like moon 

  3. Welcome to the forum :wave1:

    From the photo looks full Husky.

    The people telling you that Moon isn't a full husky do they own Huskies?

    If not then they are talking from a position of Zero knowledge about the breed.

    Huskies come in many shapes, sizes, colours of coat and eyes and different fur lengths.

    They are all full pure bred huskies.

  4. Welcome to the forum.

    As people seem to have advised you.

    First rule of Husky ownership : NEVER let your Husky (cross or not) off lead in an unsecured area.

    Second rule of |Husky ownership : See rule No. 1 :)

    people who have had other breeds always remember that you can train a dog to respond and do what you want.

    Huskies can be trained in a closed safe environment to do all the same tricks, once outside in a wide open unsecured space all that training is completely ignored 

    and you will be chasing your dog for hours, if your are even lucky enough to keep it in sight. 

    This isn't just my opinion, this is what EVERY Husky owner discovers when they  think they have the one Husky who will respond.

    On top of that they are escape artistes extraordinaire, if you have a half inch gap in your garden fence they will exploit it to get out.

    They will open doors and windows. You have to make your home into Fort Knox. You never open an exterior door without first checking that your husky is first locked away behind an interior door or baby gate.

    They will talk back to you, and ignore you, 

    And they will shed constantly and blow their undercoat twice per year.

    Other than that they are a Joy to be owned by.

    Good luck

    Likewise. I expect to be sat outside in the sun with a can of beer in my hand

    Hmmmm, I think that wherever you are in this country, at any time of the day, we can always find you sat outside in the sun with a can of beer in your hand :P
