How Many Of Us Are Sibe Owners?

they were rescues and lived with us for over a year before we introduced Misha (my husky girl) to the house
we supervised 100% when we started, but Misha soon realised they are part of the family and likes to chase if they run, but it is the playful bouncing run.
We are very comfortable with them with the cats now.
Only 3 nights ago, the shyest of the cats(Gypsy) was on the couch and Misha was on the couch at the same time.
Misha was having a snif, and Gypsy hissed back, and put a claw on Misha's nose.
it was only 3 minutes later, when Gypsy decided to leave, that there was a playful nip at the tail as she left.
She does treat our cats at home different to cats she see's in the street when walking.
My suggestion is, if it is a rescue, do what we did, and walk the dog past some cats to see the initial reaction. (at the RSPCA they had both)
Some Huskies I have heard of trying to bash down flyscreen doors to get to cats, which is not freindly.
If it is a pup your getting, if it is raised in a house with cats, it should grow up thinking it is normal, and it should not be a problem, as they cats will also have the oppurtunity during those developing stages to establish the relationship with them starting as being dominant.
It is I am told the first 12 weeks, that establish for a dog, what is normal and not normal, and what it will be used to. (kids, traffic, crowds, and other animals etc) (I could be wrong on this, but it is what a trainer told me)
And good luck,
I was going to get a Maly,or Elk hound, but I do love my husky Misha.

My husband and I are looking into getting another dog. We have 3 cavalier and a cat and we would like a larger breed. My husband has always loved Huskys but before we even consider it id like to get as much info as I can to make sure its the right breed. My main concern is whether it would get along with our 3 cavaliers and our cat, do they tolerate smaller breeds?
I just posted in the breed thread.
The other thing with the smaller breeds is the play. Sibes can be quite rough.

Miss Fluffypants is so pretty EtH. I was admiring the last lot of pics you posted. I loved the one of her with the puppies laying on her.
I gotta say I love living near the dog park now.
Not for Esky to play with other dogs, but just because there is a safe place for her to go free running.
I love seeing dogs in action and I love watching her turbo boost to keep up with every dog there.
(Plus I always sit on the ground and get pats from every dog there )
I was pissed on by a Lab the other day

Come and say hi to us if you're there! You can't really miss us. I flyball for southern cross (look for the bright blue team!) but there is another team with 2 sibes and their owners are really lovely and love talking all things sibe! I'm not sure if they're coming up for it but if they are, they'll know where to find me. They have 2 wooly coat rescue girls - the grey and white is Bella and the red and white is Ruby. Both VERY sweet girls

Zero loves the girls. And he knows their owners! The girls are a little timid (like Z, they didn't have the best start to life) but recognise "sibe people" lol. I get cuddles when I see them!
