If you have not owned a Siberian Husky before, please learn from my mistakes with my first Siberian, so neither you nor your dog ever has to go through the same heartache. Lessons I learnt are on Sukie's page. This is not a breed for everyone. While they are most gorgeous to look at, they have a few peculiar traits that might not necessarily be suitable or at least, if you know about them you can prepare yourself.
In short, they howl, dig crater sized holes, run away if not kept behind a 6 ft. wall or fence (1.8 m) and are not guard dogs. If you have an electric gate, the chances are good that your Siberian dashes out without coming back! The disadvantages of this breed have been the downfall for many Siberians when the future owners do not inform themselves properly.
And specifically for South African owners: Please be aware that Siberian Huskies are an arctic breed and have no resistance at all to tickbite fever! Proper and regular dipping or frontline top spot against ticks is an absolute must with this breed.
