  1. Hi All, We're looking at moving from the UK to NZ with our husky in 3/4 months time. He'll be three years old, but has separation anxiety and I was a bit naive in thinking that someone's in cargo with them but that isn't the case. We're now worried as we've managed to leave him on his own for 3-4 hours but not for 12 hours as will be needed for this kind of flight. The pet travel operators think it will be fine, but we're worried/nervous and wondered if anyone's attempted this before? We have a few months to work with a trainer on this, but wondered in the meantime if anyone had any advice? Cheers in advance!
  2. Hi all, I am new to this forum but was looking for some advice for my 6-month old husky! He is very playful, enjoys walks and is very strong! However, since he was around 5 months of age, he started to show an arched back. This was accompanied with pretty severe muscle tremors (severity: 9/10). We took him to the vet and, after examinations and blood tests, we were told that his new food may not be suitable for him (we had weaned him onto his new kibble completely the before these symptoms occurred). So we were told to put pup onto a gluten-free diet, which we did and the tremors have reduced drastically but haven’t gone away completely (they’re around a 2/10 now). Our pup’s arched back is still present and I’m not sure what this could be. I’ve been scouring the internet constantly for over a month and I’m still not sure what it could be. The veterinary surgeon thoroughly examined his back numerous times and she could not feel any signs of trauma and/or abnormalities. Our pup isn’t that keen to sit anymore, and it can take him a bit longer to do so, so I’m concerned about what this could be. We have used a harness on him since he was very young to avoid straining his neck. But Reading up about IVDD makes me wonder if this is what it is because the usual age of onset is 3 years. Does anybody have any ideas? I have attached some pictures of what this back arch looks like. Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you
  3. So Buran is 2 years and 10 months old. My uncle got him from a person that mistreated him and wanted to get rid of him asap, the guy had no information about the dog, parents and his blood line yet claiming that Buran is 100% purebred and has no health issues. Either way we love him and don't care what his blood line is and if he's pure bred or not, just out of curiosity and interest we'd wondered if he could actually be somewhat purebred. Personally I think that he could be a working type judging by his coat length... Just wanting to see what other people might think)
  4. I have a 1 year and 2 months old siberian husky/ malamute mix named Blu. About 2 months ago he had seizure, then again 3 weeks later, and finally another last night, which is roughly 3 weeks after his previous fit. I'm 18 and have no car, job(or a way to get to one), and I live with my single mother who barely gets by.. my point being, Blu has been fed processed kibble his whole life which mostly contains zinc sulfate. He is only experiencing 1-2 symptoms of zinc deficiency ( seizures and maybe chronic digestive issues). I was wondering if anyone has personally fixed this and how can I on a budget?? Please, I love him to death and his fits are absolutely unbearable to watch, so any help is much appreciated. I've only called the vet about this and they said zinc deficiency is rare and it's most likely epilepsy... but I guess they're only dismissive because they haven't run any tests on him
  5. Hi everyone I have an almost 3 year old red husky named Pizza. We live in Northern Virginia and I've had him since he was about 4/5 months old and got him from a family who could not care for him properly. He's your typical high energy, goofy, husky and the absolute love of my life. On June 18 of this year (2020) Pizza had his first seizure at about 5:30/6am. I was sleeping and was woken by the sound of him vomiting and immediately after he tipped over and started having a grand Mal seizure. I have never seen a dog or human have a seizure and went I into absolute hysterics. I ran to him to try and comfort and sooth him because I had no idea what was going on. The seizure itself lasted maybe 1-2 minutes and his disorientation about 15 minutes. Once he stopped convulsing I was still rubbing his head and body when he started growling at me. He bit my hand extremely hard (fractured my finger and needed stitches. I did not know you were not supposed to get close to a dog when they are having a seizure. It was natural instinct to run and comfort him). I rushed him to the vet where they did blood work and everything came back normal. The vet did not want to start him on anti seizure meds since it was his first time. We hoped and prayed it wouldn't happen again, but sadly it just happened again this weekend (Aug 1). Same exact thing, 7am, vomitted first and then went into a seizure. This time I remained very calm and did not get close and the seizure was much shorter and his disorientation afterwards was much shorter (1 minute). I took him to a neurologist today who did not think it was necessary for an MRI and suggested putting him on phenobarbital. I will also combine this with CBD and a very low dose of THC oil at night time. I have done tons of research and have found many articles stating huskies suffer Zinc deficiencies which is a "silent killer" in dogs (google it, there's a bunch of articles). Does anyone have experience or personal knowledge on this? Also, Pizza has been on core wellness dog food for the first year and a half and then I put him on Farmers Dog (fresh dog food delivered weekly). Due to covid and my income I had to take him off farmers dog because it was extremely expensive and I put him back on core wellness. I wonder if putting him back on core wellness attributed to his seizure? Does anyone recommend a good dog food for huskies? Pizza is my first husky so I am learning every day about huskies. Thanks for reading this, any feedback is greatly appreciated!
  6. Hi there, let me introduce you to my 6 year old boy alaskan malamute/husky mix Kyto that we recently adopted from the shelter.Kyto has been abused 3 times by several owners (heavily abused) and neglected, he also lived outside, in all weather, in a very small bench in which he spent more than 8 hours a day locked up! (I think it's terrible). These owners also brought him back three times to the shelter, each time at a different location for different reasons. Now we have Kyto with us for 4 months and we are still very happy with that to date. When we wanted to adopt him, Kyto was not yet available for adoption as investigations had to be made because the caregivers thought he would have a hip problem, Kyto could not stand well and long, moved away and could not run so we had to wait until there more clarity and they would contact us what the result was and they did; Kyto had hip dysplasia. If we had to adopt him, we would take long walks (we are active athletes and walkers), take us on vacation, .. forget everything and just see Kyto as a dog in the house. After visiting Kyto again at the shelter, for the 5th time in the meantime, he really stole our heart from the first time, he was really pathetic in his cage. This time it was different and Kyto was allowed to come to us in the meadow of the shelter, my heart broke, I could not hold back my tears. He walked over to my friend, Dimitri, looked him in the eye, licked him and sat down, then he walked over to me and did the same thing, we knew it: Kyto wanted us as owners and our story began there. The first days we did short walks with him, max. 10 to 15 minutes but we soon noticed that Kyto started crying in the evening because he couldn't stand the pain in his hips anymore. To make a long story short, this took a few days, we helped him, I had made an appointment with the vet about this hip dysplasia, but it turned out .. the day Kyto had to go to the vet there was nothing to be found of his pains and to date there is nothing wrong! Kyto has never walked in his life, always been locked up and abused, I am disgusted! He is so happy now, gets good food, lives inside and gets a lot of love.

  7. Hi All. I live in an urban suburb in Durban SA. My duo, Duke and Kaskae are 1year olds - Kaskae is the female and she’s a wooly. We have been trying to keep them active by walking them daily for 3-4km, both at mornings and at noons. Duke and Kaskae also enjoyed the privilege of spending some time outdoors in our garden everyday, however due to a lack of stimulation, they were starting to dig up our greenery. We are first time husky owners and with very little research done a year ago before getting our pups, we were suddenly faced with a predicated of under exercising both of them. So... One day sitting on my porch, an idea dawned on me to rig up a leash onto my mountain bike and to run my dogs one at a time. I’ve started off with Kaskae since she is much more drawn to me than Duke and she understands commands better than he does lol. Eventually, after a few trial runs, I gave both of them a shot at running together. Here’s a cool video of them taking me around the block, running at full speed. I also take them through a soccer field to give them that extra bit of sensation on their feet. Thought I’d share. This is truly one of the most amazing experiences ever. I’ve later found out that it’s called bikejoring or mushing lol. I run Duke and Kaskae 2-3 times weekly and it has made such a positive impact on their behavior plus they sleep so much nowadays FullSizeRender.mov
  8. Hi, This is the story about my 6years old malamute/husky that we adopted since 3 weeks ago.. @alaskanmalamut_kyto for updates Everyone who has followed our story the last few days knows that Kyto has been abused 3 times by several owners (heavily abused) and neglected, he also lived outside, in all weather, in a very small bench in which he spent more than 8 hours a day locked up! (I think it's terrible). These owners also brought him back three times to the shelter, each time at a different location for different reasons.

Share our story and follow us because I can do nothing on my own to stop all that stupid people that treat their animals like sh*t. PS: Sorry for the long story but I want people to stop treating their animals like dirt, they also have a heart and a right to a good life, they don't choose to come and live with YOU! Think before you take an animal into your home

  11. Hey everyone, I wanted to know if anyone knows what breed she is? She was given to us by a couple who didn’t want her. I’m not sure if she’s a full husky of mixed with another breed I would love to know if anyone has any information. Thankyou!
  12. Hello everyone, today we had our 2 year old male husky neutered, ( he was a rescue dog and we adopted him a couple weeks ago), unfortunately the extremely rude Vet didn’t give us any information regarding the healing process and do’s and don’ts with walking etc and the differences with pretty much everything during his recovery, I’ve done some research and have got some information but would like to get some information from the forum, from personal experiences with the process and the things you had the change during there recovery. Thank you!
  13. Hi everyone, we really need help with a name, we can’t agree on anything! 😫 he’s a handsome little dog and just 5 weeks old right now, we don’t bring him home for another 4 weeks but we’d like an unusual name that compliments his dark colouring, any ideas would be great folks, thanks
  14. Upon reading some of the other forum posts on here I've noticed some identical behaviors in my dog that also describe a pregnant dog. she's losing hair on her belly developing teets and nesting, is always super clingy and its gotten worse as of late. Can anyone tell me what exactly phantom pregnancy is and/ or are these hormonal effects of Skyy still being fully intact at her age (almost four years old), and never having a liter? help oh yeah also... HIII IM SARAH THIS IS MY INTRODUCTION ... story about Skyy and I: Hi, I'm Sarah, first time husky owner located on the south shore of Massachusetts. my husky is Skyy Blue I acquired her from a private seller in fitchburg Massachusetts, where she was still with her mom and dad husky. The woman just simply couldn't handle all three dog, four kids, in her sisters home, newly moved and post divorce. The day that I met Skyy she had escaped out the front door after I pulled in front of the home, before I even got out of my truck. Upon opening my door, I saw, sitting that a husky about a year and a half was patiently waiting for me to open and exit my vehicle. she wast the most beautiful all white husky with two blue eyes. She howled with excitement. Almost like she already knew that she would be coming back with me.This was to be my best friend. When I followed the dog and the woman back inside her house the woman asked me if I wanted to meet the parents (she had them crated in a separate part of the house out of concern I wouldn't be able to handle them all at once.) I assured her I always grew up with many dogs and it was fine, so she proceeded to let them out. Boy did Skyy's mom and dad have a few questions for me! mom gave me a once over barking and yipping at Skyy to stay back while she sniffed my feet and checked out my scent. Then dad proceeded to circle me and glare majestically before giving a big sigh and then a huff and taking a seat. Skyy was barking.... the entire time... and we all went into the back yard where the woman had a porch that had a separate entrance by gate that I could spend some time with sky alone in. Well protective husky mom didn't like that idea. While I was in the pen with Skyy her mom proceeded to yelp yelp yelp at dad who, annoyed, raised his paw and with one swoop knocked the latch and Rolled his eyes. In mom came with dad lumbering behind her. The woman, a little embarrassed but lacking a surprised expression like the one on my face, said "oh.... she tells him to open the gate or doors or whatever so they can all get in. they're smart....eh hmmm." Impressed and a bit fearful of what genes my dog may have inherited, but still even more so in love, I asked the woman if she would be willing to hold skyy for me. I was coming into some money but the check would need some time to clear. she said of course but made it clear if someone else showed up with the money she would have to let skyy go to them. understanding fully that she was a first come first serve money talks re-homing situation. I got in my truck and almost pulled away. The woman was on her way to work and I was watching her exit her home and cross the driveway to her vehicle. I glanced down at my wallet resting in the center console and on a whim and out of complete understanding that Skyy was an absolutely awesome pup and anyone else would scoop her up in a heart beat. Even though I needed the hundred dollars for something else at the time, I proceeded to grab the five twenty dollar bills from my wallet, and raced out of my vehicle to catch the woman before she departed. "Excuse me." I said. "I really want this dog, would you be willing to accept a partial deposit of $100 dollars and I can come back in a week with the rest when my check clears? $100 now to guarantee me skyy?" she smiled... and said yes. a week later Skyy and I drove out of fitchburg to her new forever home in Weymouth where we would begin many adventures, and still have more to start.
  15. Hey guys! Im going to buy a new husky puppy. I got lost, i dont know a lot of about pure breed husky so i need your help. I have contact a guy and said that he have a pure breed husky puppies so i really want your opinion about if its real pure breed or not. Unfortunately in my country we dont a akc or kennel club so its would be pretty amazing to know your thoughts!
  16. Hi! I'm new here and also a first time owner of a husky puppy. His name is Jarvis (from the Avengers, Tony's computer.. 😁) He was born last November 11, 2018 and I got him last January 11 of this year.
  17. Hi, I just got a male husky puppy last January 11. The seller said he was born last Nov. 11, 2018 so he was exactly two months old when we got him. His name is Jarvis by the way.. I was just wondering if I was tricked because he looks small for a two-month old husky. The seller said he is a purebreed but some people said he looks small for a two-month old. I don't think he's sick because he eats normally and is very playful. He still eats the same type of food from what the seller has fed him. And are his ears supposed to still be floppy at two months? I would still love him the same though even if he wasn't a purebreed but I just want to know if he really isn't. I don't want to tell people that asks if he's purebreed that he is and then turns out he's not. What do you guys think?(his pictures attached) InShot_20190117_002238535.mp4 V_20190116_133021_EH1.mp4 V_20190116_131052_DOC0.mp4
  18. 🛑Help🛑 I know I already posted something on this but I just went to the vet to weight him. so my dog is 23/24 inches to the shoulders and he weights a whopping 74 pounds he doesn’t look that fat but I’m not sure. Would it be fine to give him a cup less food? 1/2 less in the morning and 1/2 less at night?

  20. I just ordered these for Jax. He’s 2 years old and just recently was diagnosed with epilepsy after having random seizures one day, 3 seizures in 48 hrs. After doing a lot of research and reading, I believe he may have a zinc deficiency also. I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with this specific supplement? If so, is it good? thanks!
  21. Hi! New here! Our dog is a husky shepherd mix, a rescue. Trying to figure out which breed forum to join, ha ha... looks like a big husky, but is mainly attached to one person (me), follows me from room to room, barks loudly at the door, and is a bit aloof ( does not seek attention from strangers). Does he act more like a shepherd, then? But aside from barking at door, he is a silent guy., which seems more like a husky... Starting obedience class in 2 weeks, so I guess we will see which breed in him dominates...? wondering if he can be offleash trained ( more like shepherd) or never let off leash (more like husky)!
  22. Kota is an (almost) 19 month old husky living in Minnesota. He's pretty lazy because we can't run him as much as we should. For as long as I can remember having him he's always panted a lot. Of course he would when we take him to the park and on walks, but he also does it when he hasn't done any sort of physical activity (like sitting around in the house). For example we could be sitting on the couch together and he would just be slowly panting. It wasn't fast or rough. But for clarification its not CONSTANT but it does happen a lot. For a while I thought it was cute because it seemed relaxing (if that makes sense) but now it sort of worries me. We're just getting into the colder months here so there's even less of a reason why he should be doing it so frequently. Is it the temperature of our house (it's usually around 70° F)? Is it because he pulls too much on walks and hurts himself? Can anyone help? We're still pretty new to being husky owners so anything is appreciated!!
  23. Our dog gets a lot of compliments because of how she looks. For some reason people say she looks like a fox, coyote or baby wolf. I had two people ask how much would it cost for her. I said I don't give family away, but my uncle loves her a lot too. While she does look like a coyote (she's not) she had a very beautiful white brother back in her sleddog facility upnorth. She's a bit smaller now, but. I don't see all the fuss, I think she's beautiful even though I know some people are scared of her at first glance since they think she is a wolf or coyote. But she's the sweetest thing, a bit stubborn although!
  24. Hi everyone, I just adopted a puppy last week from a cousin who bought her but couldn't take care of here anymore since his mom was recently detected cancer and has no time to take care of the pup. The seller told him she was a purebreed husky, he showed him her parents and siblings and they did look like huskies, but while I was researching about the breed I saw many pictures of husky pups and my little girl doesn´t look like them very much, mostly because she has shorter hair. She is the sweetest pup I've ever seen and I love her regardless if she's mixed or purebreed but out of curiosity I would like to know your opinions. Does she look purebreed or mixed? She's 6 weeks old, her name is Krista and her ears have'nt stood up yet.
