Does anyone have experience with huskies? Our neighbours are foster parents for a nine month old one that my wife has taken great interest in.

We rent a huge property and are working from home pretty much exclusively. We were thinking of spending time with him daily for walks and then seeing how we can slowly introduce him to our kids and old cats.

My first impressions were that the dog was pretty shy and a bit all over the place and not listening to his name or any commands yet.

All I know is that they are beautiful creatures.

Agree 1000%, they're beautiful animals. I've always "heard", that they aren't as happy in places where it gets very hot, but that's sort of most places unless you live in the arctic :D

Our Canadian winters here can get quite cold so I think he’d be happy in that respect.

Since the dog lives next door for now we’ll go and help walk him for the next few weeks to see if me and the kids can become his friends.

I do expect an energy bundle like this guy to need a lot of time and routine to come around, but we’ll see. Wish us luck! :)

They can be very stubborn, and require firm training. Remember they were bred to be a sled dog and having them pull a heavy load is good for them and you, lol!
