Huskies and Sheperds, yay or nay?
As a few know, I have an adult GSD, Vega. We are doing much better due to the advice on this site, so I thought I would turn to you all again.
My partner and I are seriously considering adding a husky puppy to our household, predominately to be my fiancee's dog, but also because we want a large, fuzzy family. I know that some people on this site have both breeds, and I wanted to know your thoughts and advice on having two, large, fuzzy, active dogs.
While we wouldn't get a (preferably) male husky for another year or two, I want to consider everything. We both know that puppies take A LOT of work, especially a husky, and frankly I'm a bit concerned about the energy level of a husky, but that could be blown out of proportion. My partner and I are both willing to train and socialize, and are willing to look for the right breeder so find the right fit. I already have Vega, who by the time we get a puppy will be 5-6 or so, a cat (prey drive concern!) and a snake. Should we factor in Vega's age in this decision? I have heard of adult dogs getting along with puppies, but I was never sure how old those dogs were. We both love how pack oriented huskies are, and for Vega to have a similarly sized friend (eventually).
So far we have talked about the fuzz, the energy, the training and the cost. Should we be researching or discussing anything else?
(if this already a thread, I would love to read it!)
