Just a quick intro ..
I've grown up around dogs all my life, always had them in the family, but Jan this year I decided I needed a companion of my own. I'm not a very social person and my idea of a good time is a time when I can just do whatever I want. I'm a bit of a geek when it comes down to it, doing my own electronics design, computer programming, all that boring stuff and spend most of my time around the house (when I can).
I've always found Siberian Huskies to be such lovely dogs, in personality, quirks and of course their looks. I'm also not gonna deny that I need whatever exercise I can force myself into, so he's definitely keeping me on my toes which is awesome. I stumbled across some pups for sale in the local paper for a nice price and decided to go check them out. Of course I knew in the back of my mind I would be coming home with a dog that day, but
This breeder would probably be considered a "typical" back yard breeder, but to be honest I'm quite impressed with how they handled the whole thing. They brought all the remaining puppies along for me to have a look at, as well as the mother, and unfortunately the father had become victim to a paralysis tick a few weeks before their birth. I already had all the gear to get started, but the breeder went out of their way and supplied a new bag of dry food they had been eating, a lead and collar, a chew toy that my pup had picked out from a bunch of different toys and of course the first vaccination certificate. WHat really stood out though was they definitely knew each of their pups personalities. In my case he absolutely loves water. The breeder gave me a shallow bucket they used to put down for him to play in. The pups were due to be microchipped the next day, but I had agreed to meet with the breeder the day before. As a result he said he'd let me keep a $50 and I could go get him chipped myself, which I did along with the 12 week vaccinations. Overall I was very happy with them and the pups, wouldn't regret it at all.
Loki has been growing nicely and is by far the best behaved pup I've ever seen personally. He has his occasional moments of over excitement, but he's very calm apart from that, definitely the opposite of what I was expecting when doing my research on huskies. My one goal is that he gets to spend the rest of his life with me. Might be difficult at times but I'll make it happen
After having some not so great experiences on other forums, I'm searching for a place with people that just loves dogs for what they are, and of course are willing to share their pics and stories
Looking forward to getting into some discussions, and also looking at others' pics too
