If you're thinking about how to select a Siberian Husky I strongly recommend that you get some information from people who know and appreciate the breed; hopefully have dogs of their own you can talk to and meet. And also, do some research online. There's a lot of information in books as well. Make sure you understand the breed characteristics. These tend to be friendly, active dogs. Of course, that's a general statement; individual dogs will vary. They tend to need a lot of mental and physical stimulation. Obviously, they're very cold tolerant, so a warmer climate might be a little more difficult for them. When you're selecting any dog you want to make sure you're making a decision that's a good pick for your family now and in the future. Potentially, you'll have fifteen years or more of life with this dog, and you want to make sure that you honor that commitment. In selecting a dog, if you're after a puppy it would be wise to work with a reputable breeder who breeds on a small scale; not just for the beauty of the dog, but also for physical characteristics and temperament, so that you get a good solid dog. Of course, be prepared to pay more money for that service. Sometimes, breeders will have dogs who wouldn't make it in the show ring, and they'll sell them for a slight discount as a pet dog and they would need to be spayed or neutered. Another good possibility with any breed of dog is to consider a reputable rescue.
