  1. I have heard of people paying from 1000 – 1500 for a husky at petland.. we got ours full bred from a breeder near us, and paid 125.. we got a great deal. the woman had 2 litters back to back.. and I helped her find homes for some of them, so she gave me a great deal..

    we love her to death, and she is a spoiled princess… good luck and I hope you are able to the pup.

  2. er, um, call me crazy but if you are really ready to buy a puppy who will live for upwards of 12 years and will require thousands in vet bills over the year (even just spay and routine visits) then perhaps you are ready to research getting a puppy properly?

    Like, go to a reputable breeder, rather than a puppy mill bred one. Also, think long and hard about how you can afford this pup on your petland minimum wage. Feeding a large breed like that is going to cost you about $70 a month. Plus if there was an accident, how would you afford a $5000 vet bill?

    If you don’t think this through, someone will have to post a question on here in like, 6 months saying “I just adopted a messed up Husky from a kid who works at Petland and who can tell me how to fix the issues?”

  3. If people gave you crap about wanting to buy a Siberian husky at a pet store, you very well deserve it. You do not “buy” animals, you adopt them. And if you have your heart set on a husky, try to find a rescue organization or a shelter (yes, I have read there are purebreds in shelters). Of course, unlike a crappy puppy mill pet store, a rescue organization or shelter will make sure you can actually, you know, like, CARE for the animal and that s/he will have a good home. A puppy isn’t a toy; s/he requires care and feeding.

    If you don’t like the answers you’re getting, stop asking the question.

  4. Each store is a franchise so how are we to know what exorbitant price they might charge. Before the Animal control and health dept closed them down, the Petland in our town was charging $1000 to 1500 on average.

    We are not giving you crap about puppy mills. We are trying to explain that what ever you pay, it will be too much. The poor puppy will have come from a horrible environment, and that kind of mistreatment will haunt you with health and personality problems as long as your have the dog.

    If you do buy her, please take her to a Vet not affiliated with the store for a factual evaluation. Have her hips X-rayed and OFA evaluated. Repeat this at one year. Check carefully for any signs of skin diseases, Bordetella, and be extra careful about vaccinations because puppy mill puppies often carry diseases.

  5. I know that your heart is set on this particular puppy but the price will be exorbitant and you would be able to find a better quality husky pup for probably 1/2 – 1/3 the price by going to a breeder. Additionally, if you get a pup from a breeder, it will come with a health guarantee that really means something.

    Yes, the pups sold at Petland come from commercial breeders who raise their puppies like chicken or cattle in pens which are usually filthy and unhealthy. They are loaded into trucks like cattle and shipped from the commercial facilities. Many of the pups die in route to Petland but since they are just an expendable commodity.

  6. The price of a dog at Petland is that its mother is forced to live in what we would otherwise think of as a bunny hutch, with a wire floor. She is bred every time she comes into heat, and given no veterinary care, or soft place to be. She produces puppies that are nervous, ill cared for, and often diseased, but the diseases are treated in the back of the store, so you don’t see what they have gone through.

    When you give Petland or any other store any money, whether it be for a toy or a dog you think you love, what you are doing is allowing them to torture yet another poor broodbitch who must spend her entire reproductive life in a cage, and be unplaceable when she is tossed out.

    You should not get any dog, much a dog there, if you don’t care about the way they are produced. I’m sorry, but that is far beyond my comprehension.

  7. Normally they price there dogs between 800 an 1400 bucks which is ridiculous because all of there puppies come from puppy mills. I used to work at a Petland and everyone I know that bought from them end up having genetic issues.

  8. Since you work there, are you going to “fall in love” with every poorly bred puppy you take care of?

    I’m sure your parents will love that.

    A little side note: Over the years, I’ve had two Siberians in my rescue who came from a well-known pet store in my area; both were born and bred in Missouri, pure puppy mill stock. One died of liver failure at 8 months old, and the other died at not quite 2 years old — again, liver failure, but this time the kidneys conked out, too.

    This is what you have to look forward to. Think you can handle it??

    The other question I have. Clearly you are “in love” with this puppy for its looks — those blue eyes, that black mask (no need to describe it, I already know what it looks like).

    Do you know anything about Siberian huskies? Provided it lives to adulthood, do you know what kind of dog you’ll be dealing with? Are you sure you can handle a dog that digs and escapes, ignores you when you call it, and needs 2 hours of exercise daily, and will shed huge tufts of fur all over your parents’ house??

    This is the worst possible combination I can think of — someone buying a poorly bred puppy purely on looks.

    Please don’t do this.

  9. It’s a great thing about living in a free country, and belonging to an open forum – you do not have the right to tell me what to say. No more than I have the right to tell you that you cannot buy this dog.

    That dog is from a puppy mill. It is over-priced for the quality of the dog. It will be hard to train and will have health problems.

    Additionally – different stores will price different dogs differently. If you actually work there – here’s a thought – ask your manager!!!!

  10. What will it cost in dollars, or what will it cost in suffering?

    Consider this: All, and I mean ALL, of puppies in pet shops are

    from puppymills and backyard breeders. These animals are bred until dead.

    They are puppy manufacturing machines, and have no life as a pet. They are

    kept as cheaply as possible to keep profits high. Some puppymillers have

    even been known to chop up the dogs and puppies that die in whelping

    (puppy-birth) and feed them to the surviving dogs! They are kept in stacked

    cages to make it possible to keep more producing puppies in less space. The

    uring and feces from the dogs on top drops on the dogs below. The vet care

    is shoddy at best, if it even exists. Do you know what they do to keep noise

    from barking dogs down? They shove a pvc pipe down the dog’s throat and

    pound it with a hammer until they sever the vocal cords.

    Do you want to be a reason they continue to abuse dogs for a buck? Do you

    think you can sleep at night knowing some of the money you paid for a

    petshop dog will be used to buy another dog to have it bred until it’s dead?

    Go to www.nopuppymills.com Please look at this horror, and pledge not to buy

    fromn a petshop. Adoption is the best option.

    Do you think any amount of money is as important as stopping this horror?

  11. Why would you want to work there? Not only that but you’re supporting puppy mills by getting one of their dogs?? Do you know how many puppy-buyers have been royally SCREWED by PetLand??

The Siberian husky is a medium-sized working breed that belongs to the spitz family. Its most distinctive features are its triangular sized ear and thickly furred double coat. The Siberian husky looks similar to a dog named the Alaskan Malamute. The only difference between the Siberian husky and the Alaskan malamute is that the former is a medium-sized dog whilst the latter is a large-sized dog.

BREED HISTORY

The Siberian husky has a very clear history. It was originally bred by the Chukchi people of the Northeast region of Asia. The Chukchi people valued the Siberian husky to be a “sled dog”. Sled dogs were the only viable means of transportation in the arctic region till the introduction of snowmobiles, airplanes and semi-trailer trucks. 

The Siberian husky was also considered to be a great companion and family dog by the Chukchi people. The term husky is actually considered to be a corruption of the term esky which is used to refer to the Eskimo people of the arctic regions. The Siberian husky later found its way to Alaska at about 1908 during the period of the Alaskan gold rush. The husky was a perfect option for transporting gold, and also, for a popular sled dog racing competition named the all Alaskan sweepstakes. 

By 1930, the Siberian husky was no longer exported from Siberia. However, in that same year, the dog was introduced to America. The major role it played in America was for military purposes. It was used by the American navy in 1933 to journey around the coast of Antarctica. The most popular Siberian huskies in history are Balto and Togo. They were the dogs who had the riskiest run in the “Great Race Of Mercy”, a race that saw huskies delivering serum to nome during the period when children were battling with the diphtheria epidemic.

TEMPERAMENT

The Siberian husky is usually a very intelligent and alert dog. It is also very loyal, gentle, outgoing and generally friendly. The Siberian husky is better known to be a dog that expects its owner to order it around as this has always been its major purpose to be led to drive a sled. However, the Siberian husky might make attempts to test the leadership qualities of their owners, once in a while. The best way to correct this is by being assertive and ensuring that your dog knows whos in charge. Asserting your leadership position has absolutely nothing to do with hitting the dog. Making it wait a little longer for food and treats is one the best way to assert your role as its leader. By doing this, the dog learns to show maximum respect.

ENVIRONMENT  

The Siberian husky thrives perfectly well in a family environment and as does great as a militia dog. This is because, apart from the fact that it is originally used to being in harsh weather conditions, the Siberian husky was also a family dog and a companion to its original breeders. Known to be an escape artist, the Siberian dog is one that would always try to jump over fences, and dig different spots in gardens. For this reason, when keeping a Siberian husky, high fences that are dug into the ground must be made available

EXERCISE

The Siberian husky is an extremely active dog and as such, it likes lots of exercise. Engaging it in exercises such as running and walking might not be enough for it. It loves to play with its owners and may get destructive if it’s not getting adequate exercise. Training this dog is also very important. Engaging it in respect and obedience training is also important for it. Leash training is very important for your Siberian husky too. If left unleashed, it might just run too far away from its owner.

GROOMING

Grooming the Siberian husky is very important. In hot climates, the Siberian husky sheds a lot. However, it sheds less in colder climates. The rule of thumb is to brush its coat regularly and take care of all other parts of its body.
