Its true that huskies take a lot of work to have a solid recall, but we ourselves have a few that are reliable off leash. Its all training, and if your dog is part GSD, theres a good chance that if you keep working him, he'll get to the reliable recall you want. However, bear in mind if you are going to be walking in the woods or something, that a husky's prey drive is one of the highest there is. Any dog can be trained to do what you want, if you are dedicated enough, but sometimes huskies (I call it slipping) "Slip" into a kind of wolfish state when presented by prey, so they can't even hear you. Its scary when it happens, so be sure you prepare for this type of thing, and always be on the lookout. If there is a chance of running into something you don't want your dog to chase, be careful! Do you have a remote trainer? It might help with the recall as well. As for the biting, I'll hang around to see what more knowledgeable people say!
Good luck! Sounds like you have a good dog to me!
