  1. 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
  2. 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. Now we have Kyto with us for 3 weeks 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! Follow our stories and daily activities on his instagram @alaskanmalamut_kyto and we will follow all our friends back. 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

  4. Here is a link of a video of my Husky, Phantom. Is he oversized for 6months? or is this normal. Please help me here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIyFDQkiqKI
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  8. Hello everyone I wanted to introduce myself, me and my wife are first time dog owners and we are currently going through the process of adopting a 2 year old male husky! we’ve done research and we’ve looked through a ton of the forums on this site, especially ones from other first time dog owners and seeing the experiences and responses from experienced husky owners and I have to admit it has put my mind at rest a lot knowing there’s such a supportive community out there to help. We are nervous but more so excited to start this new journey!
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. I have a purebred akc male husky who is 7 years old, and a female ckc registered puppy. She is 12 weeks old and one of her ears isn't standing fully. What age did your huskies ears stand? I worry if its genetics. Or if she is even purebred. I drove to canada to get her. Hence why she is ckc, and not akc. I did see both parents, however i was unsure if the mother was purebred. Based on how she looked. Should i be concerned?
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 🛑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?

  17. 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!
  18. 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)!
  19. 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!!
  20. 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!
  21. 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.
  22. A week ago I went on a really long walk with my husky. When we walked I noticed him kick his left rear leg out. Following the walk he was stiff and the leg didn't seem to cause him too much issue. However this week he was clearly in pain as he was vocal about it. I took him to the the vets for an x-ray and a CT scan. £1500.00 later they now say he may need a MRI scan. Please can you offer advice, he is in pain when he gets up and sits but seems better when walking. The scans came back inconclusive. Could it be ligament? Trapped nerve? If so how can I identify it? I have attached some videos to show him walking. Diego in pain Diego not showing sign of pain
  23. Hello everyone! Im new to this forum and created this account to help give me insight. Recently, I adopted a husky who is around 50 pounds who will be available for pickup around next week. After constant worry and extensive research about huskies escaping fences, I'm worried my dog will try to escape. Our backyard is pretty spacious, however, the fence is relatively short with some sections made of brick and others iron. We have one gate that is chained but we are planning on installing a PVC pipe above it to fix the problem. However the biggest problem we are facing is the brick wall as it has a unique feature where the brick wall slowly becomes shorter and shorter all around the perimeter until it reaches the end of the backyard. It starts off at 5 feet than slowly shortens all the way down to 3 feet 10 inches. What do you guys think would be the best extension to fix the problem at hand? Thank you very much ahead of time!
  24. So my husband came home the other night with a puppy. He told me it was a husky and we’ve been falling in love with it, and now I’m wondering if it truly is a husky. He seems to small for an 8 week old husky. I have been looking at other photos of husky puppies and I grew up with a husky as a kid, even my husband had one when he was single. So I think he just fell in love with it and bought it without really thinking lol. Anyways, we are going to keep it either way I’m just curious what it might be. I think he is a pomsky personally. We have been planning on buying a husky puppy for awhile. We already chose a breeder that somebody recommended us, but we have this little guy now. So any help would be great from you guys!m
