Do you currently own a husky or other northern Breed? What are their names and ages?

We have owned 5 Alaskan malamutes, 3 Huskies, a Newfoundland and an American Eskimo. Most of the time 2 at a time. We currenty have an Alaskan Malamute 5 months old named Juneau.

Where did you get your Siberian Husky?

Our last 2 Mals were adopted from Dodge County Humane Society and Nebraska Humane Society. One Mal Cody was 10 years old when we adopted him, he lived to be 13 1/2. He was the a wonderful pet. Our next dog was a Mal/ Sibe mix who was 6 years old, she had diabetes and we were able to keep her healthy for 4 1/2 years. She passed away in early spring. This time we checked with both Humane Societys and Tayshia Blue rescue, none had a Malamute available so we purchased our puppy from a breeder in Lincoln. We were able to meet his litter mates and mom and dad. This family had a huge (2 acre ) yard where mpm and puppies were able to rum and play. Dad came out after mom and puppies were back in their home.

What is your favorite personalty trait of your husky?

One of our favorite traits about our Mals is how kind and friendly they are.

Huskies are known for their personality traits: The Magician, The Athlete, The Dietitian, The Wonderer, The Gardener, The Hairball, The Socialite, The Guardian, The Einstein. Which one(s) do you know personally?

We have been lucky enought to have one of each!!

Does your dog enjoy training or do specialty classes like agility, fly-ball or rally-o??

We have done Puppy Adventure with Juneau and have just begun Puppy obedience. With his temperment I am leaning toward Pet Therapy and if I can get my grand child to work with him, agility. I think that ship may have sailed as far and doing agility myself. With our previous Mals and Sibes we have done agility, obedience, pet therapy, dog sledding, cross country skiiing. We just love the breed and feel they are so versatile.

Introduction
