If that's a YES and you have the time to love, train, keep in the house to be socialized... I'd get him.
thanks for answer.
I know his looking good dog.
I didn't met him. and i think he is not trained. forget about huskies and G.S. I found the dog I really like and I need. The Rottweiler he is 16 months old. and trained with good price. I will go for the Rottweiler.

Thanks all.

If the dog in the photos is lazy, that is individual to that dog. My first GSD I got when she was 3.5 years old. She was not lazy nor hard to train. In fact we started training the same week I got her. I put 12 different titles on her and we trained an competed in rally obedience, SDA obedience, agility, pet therapy, and I also showed her in conformation for fun. If a dog doesn't listen to you, it has nothing to do with the dog's age. I've owned or fostered and trained dogs from 7 weeks old to one that I got for free off an online ad when he was 11 years old. In fact a lot of the training I do I can't do with a puppy, they are too young. The puppy in my photo is 5 months old and I have to wait another year to really start training him in flyball, agility, and Schutzhund. He is not physically or mentally developed.
thanks bro for the answer. what ever i like to get them when they puppies and then make them bigger. what ever i said to the seller i dont want it anymore. i found 2 huskies. first one is older he is 1 year old. and another one 2 months old? what you think i must get? the puppy or the 1 year old?.

Note: this is my first time to buy a dog need help :P


thanks

Thanks bro for the answer. but the reasons i dont wanna buy older. 1: he is lazy thats mean he is not playful. 2: its maybe hard for me to train him at the home and at me. cause i already have 2 German Shepherds both 8 - 9 months old. so maybe they fight or like that. 3: maybe he dont listen to me or he just ignoring me. whatever the puppies way better cause they will be with you since they were puppies. and very easily to train them. ? what do you think should i buy it or :|? im really confused. i found a husky puppy with a great price. i'm Super confused now what you think ?

lhczth I agree. He is a mature dog of around 4. I would go see him. You may find he is what you want.

The dog does look pure bred, nice looking dog, if I had to guess he's 4 or 5 years old by the little gray on his muzzle.
