Pros And Cons Of Siberian Husky Rescue

Before contacting your area Siberian Husky rescue organization for adoption, it is a good idea to weigh the pros and cons involved with this process. Bringing a dog into your home as a family pet will require years of commitment and hours spent in training and playing with your dog. A dog deserves to have a family that is willing to put in the time and effort required to build a positive relationship with him. Before you determine if you are ready and willing to make this commitment, take a look at the pros and cons of owning a Siberian Husky rescue dog.

Keep in mind that this dog probably got to the rescue kennel because his original owners did not prepare for his place in the family before adopting their Siberian Husky. Perhaps this family saw an adorable ball of fur at a breeder’s house and brought the pup home without any thought or consideration to how they would train and care for the dog as it became bigger and more difficult to handle. This dog may have become destructive due to lack of training and boredom. It is possible that the family did not realize what the cost of feeding and caring for their new pet would be. This dog has now ended up in a Siberian Husky rescue organization; probably saved from the fate of being destroyed by a local pound or shelter. If you consider the background of the Siberian Husky that you are considering adopting, you will see why weighing the cost of caring for this dog should be considered so carefully before proceeding with your Siberian Husky adoption.

Cons

Siberian Huskies were bred to effortlessly run long distances. Because of this instinct, it is absolutely necessary that your adopted Siberian Husky is confined at all times. This can be in a fenced backyard or on a leash when walking with you. If your dog ever did escape from your yard, chances are good that you would never see your pet again, since roaming instincts are high and homing skills are poor. While Siberian Huskies are intelligent, they can also be stubborn and willful. Often a dog will not choose to obey his master unless he sees a point to doing so. This can make the training of your adopted Siberian Husky a long and challenging process. Finally, if you have ever seen one of these beautiful dogs, you know that this breed has a thick coat with plenty of hair! The undercoat of this dog is completely shed once or twice every year. This means that during shedding times you will have dog hair on your carpet, covering your furniture, and even in the air you breathe. If you like a clean environment sans telltale signs of your pet, reconsider adopting a Siberian Husky.

Pros

There is no doubt (especially with Siberian Husky owners) that this breed is one of the most beautiful dogs. If you decide to adopt a Siberian Husky, you will not only gain an attractive pet, but one that is friendly, social and great with kids. You will have a companion that is always ready to play with you and enjoys your company nearly all the time. Siberian Huskies rarely bark, so you might also gain a dog that is relatively quiet.
