Siberian Huskies do have their short falls.
Like shedding (or blowing their coat) twice a year,
so you need to have a love for hair and fuzz or a really good vacuum cleaner....
Siberians also need room to exercise, so a one room apartment is out.
Companionship; Siberians need it! If you leave to go to work for 8 hours and there is no one else at home, there maybe no home left when you get back! Everything you own maybe in little pieces when you return. So it is wise to have a kennel at home where they can exercise and do their thing or just have someone around them.
They do like to dig! Well, at least some of them do. So if your backyard happens to be their kennel too, be ready to replant everything.
The Siberian Husky is a known escape artist and are extremely proficient at getting out! You may end up cementing under fences, or wiring above fences. If there is a way out, THEY WILL FIND IT!
Cats and Siberians, if raised together, will generally get along, as long as the cat never crosses the Siberian, like trying to eat out of the Siberians empty food dish, may cause the cat to become deceased. A stray cat crossing the Siberian's territory, or even close, is toast!
Mice, gerbils, hamsters, and alike are simply food to a Siberian, so don't even think about it.
Running: Siberians LOVE TO RUN!!! If you open your front door and have no fence or leash on the Siberian the chances are good that the Siberian may become the following: roadkill (he ran across the road so fast that I...), shot (your dog was eating my chickens....) so don't let them run unless in a enclosed area!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are more considerations to be made if you or even your neighbor have other pets, or animals and how much time you spend on training and raising the Siberian Husky. But if you have made it this far and feel that you still want one,
