oh wow they're beautiful, those puppies are so cute with their flappy ears
I prefer alsations and dobermans im afraid.
staffordshire bull terriers anyday of the week!
They're beautiful, of course. But, generally, they are not suitable as an average family pet. They are, first and foremost, bred to be working dogs, and the average family environment is not stimulating enough for a Husky. However, there are some exceptions to the rule, of course, as I'm sure people have stated. I mean, I have a Border Collie, which are also working dogs, but she's beautifully behaved (she does get walked 3-5 times a day, though), so I'm not saying that ALL Huskies don't make good pets, but most don't.
I work at kennels, and every time we get a Husky in, it tries to escape and a lot of them are very territorial, which is a dangerous, horrible trait in a pet. In fact, we get a lot in the sanctuary, most of whom can never be re-homed because they have such bad behavioural problems.
A Husky breeder has moved to my area, and lots of people who are pretty unexperienced with dogs are buying them because they're 'oh so cute!' as puppies.
Huskies need an experienced owner with a lot of free time, but unfortunately, some people just buy them because they're such beautiful animals. Also, barely anyone trims their coats in summer, because it's not part of the breed standard and they 'don't look as gorgeous'. Hello? They are meant to live in Arctic conditions, pulling sleds. Their coat is destined to keep them warm in very, very cold temperatures. It's just downright cruel to leave them with such a long coat in summer, the poor dogs spend most of the summer panting. Somebody has already proved this point about a Husky spending summer by the AC vent. If you had a fur coat that long in 25-30C heat, then you'd do anything to try and keep cool.
I wasn't trying to rant there, by the way. I realise it didn't sound very friendly, and it wasn't directed at anyone in particular.
