But they still have to go out to sh... relieve themselves, right? Anyway, dogs don't like being separated from the pack so I guess I'll have to wait until I retire Which if I was as old as I feel right now with all my aches and pains would be tomorrow.
We put a dog flap in the back door so the dog can go out to the loo if he needs during the day; although he hardly ever does, he is such a lazy arse all he wants to do is sit on the sofa in the sun and sleep.

Re: Looking to Buy/Adopt a Dog...

Hello
We had two dogs but our female dog has recently died and our male Jack Russell (5 years old) is in need of company. We are also looking at rescue dogs, but thought that there may be someone on this forum looking for a solution for a dog that they cannot keep. We can take a Female dog only, unfortunately, and are looking at any breeds small to medium size, not too big, preferably 4-6 years old. If you need someone to adopt your dog - please PM me.
Thanks,
CC Luins

Re: Looking to Buy/Adopt a Dog...

Hi, Rich

I am always getting upset and depressed when people say "I want Border Collie or German Shepard or Belgian malinos.... or Husky."

I don't think you can compare GS and husky as there are to many differences between them and I can't find any comparison (except that both are dogs)

I have a Siberian husky and I think I need to tell you this (if you already know everything about them, please ignore my post and please don't groan me, I just want you all the best with your dog) so you two will have a great time together and both of you will be happy in your relationship

So, huskies:

- if you work all day forget about husky ( I walk my husky for 4-5 hours a day and even more during the weekend). You should really give your husky lots of physical affection.

- be prepare that your dog will probably be on a leash (always!), no husky can be trusted not to run away if not on leash

- they have double coat (right know we have tons of her undercoat all around us but I don't mind. It is just that I don't wear any black clothes anymore.)

- they are very intelligent and easily bored dogs - and they find people very boring... I must act like a monkey if I want to amuse her. (I don't care if there are people around us.) I make funny noises, I jump around, I behave really childish, but I gain her attention and that is a great felling.

- they will demand attention and they will get it - if you don't provide him occupation, he will find one (maybe he/she will chew you furniture )

- husky is not a watchdog (they even don't know how to bark)

- they have strong hunting instinct and they love digging.

- and something about training them... Well, this is an exercise of your patience. We (she will be 5 soon) went 4! time to puppy school (yes, she was three and a half years old when we visited puppy school for the last time). And I am quite lucky, because she loves working with me. She is cooperative, but! when she does not want to work, she won't be and I can't do anything about that.)

- they are stubborn and they need an alpha leader who is strong in character

- husky don't like high temperature (mine is very depressed when there is above 23C, so in Summer we walk at 6.30 in the morning for 2 hours and at 9pm for two hours)

- if you have time read this book: Siberian Huskies for dummies (I am not kidding - this is the title of a book) author is Diane Morgan. It is a great book for beginners. I love it.

And here is the link you might want to check: http://www.petfinder.ch/suchen/haust..._species_eq=1,

After all, if you are willing to accept all these, I can only recommend this breed as they are just great. I have found my soul mate in my husky. We have a great time together and I love her very very much. She is the best. I think she loves me to, although huskies rarely show that She knows many tricks, we will try agility now, we do canicross and rollerjoring together...

If you will get one and if you want some advises, you can PM me.

Not to worry, we all do it at least once! Btw, it is a fabulous post, from someone that clearly loves Huskies and wants potential owners to understand what they are getting themselves into.

A thanx to Longbyt as well for adding the tag.
