Siberian Husky

Working Breed

Zeus rescued by the Arizona Siberian Husky Rescue and Malakai rescued by the Siberian Husky Club of Western Conneticut Rescue

The Siberian Husky is a very social dog who seeks the companionship of other dogs or people.  They are welcoming to strangers and may not make the best guard dog.  It will not do well as a single dog if there are long periods when no one is at home.  The Husky is great with children, but may “bump” them in their exuberance to play.  They accept other pets especially if raised with them from puppyhood.  A very intelligent dog with a need to run.  Will do better if able to roam and run in a controlled situation.  A city dog will want lots of exercise and social contact.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA (, and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
