Acquired: Bred dog myself
Posted October 17, 2015
Sunka chewed up a LOT of stuff as a puppy, but eventually outgrew it. Don't leave them alone in the house until they get some age and training or major items like your couch may be at risk. She was somewhat stubborn to train at first, but once she understood what you wanted, she was very obedient. Huskies are very vocal and have a howl that can be heard for miles, and she used it often. She was NOT good with small children and occasionally snapped at them when they pulled ears or tail. She was very sweet natured most of the time and enjoyed running and playing with older children. This is a breed that needs lots of exercise and room to run. She would kill a squirrel or cat that wandered into her yard but was ok with the family dachshund. She was healthy until the last couple years of her life, when she became arthritic, very obese due to inactivity from the arthritis, then diabetic from excess weight and inactivity, then finally developed breast cancer at the end. Our vet told us spayed females (she wasn't) rarely get breast cancer - a good reason to spay early.
