We first became involved with Siberians in 1993.
The Siberian Husky is a noble, strong and eye catching breed of dog. It can have a coat of any colour with any pattern or markings, ranging from white, grey and black to red or copper and including sable or even piebald. The eye colour of Siberians is unique as they can have blue through to dark brown. Eyes can even be of different colours or even parti-coloured. In general, they are particular about their cleanliness, and being a member of the Spitz breeds, they are free from the usual doggy odours.
A Siberian should be gentle, reliable and friendly, making a good family companion for all ages. They have an alert, outgoing and clownish personality, with the desire to please and the inclination to be rather stubborn, strong willed and unrivalled independence. They are neither guard dogs nor fighters, being affectionate to one and all, and are a VERY energetic breed with a great desire to run.
Siberian husky puppies are very cute, especially when they are babies. However, be warned that this breed is not for everyone. They can be quite naughty and have a great zest for life. Anything that moves is considered fair game, so watch out for your toes, washing on the line, the pet cat or the neighbours chooks! Other favourite pastimes are hole excavations and wood chewing. These kinds of habits may seem amusing as a puppy, but can become very frustrating and at times disastrous when they are adults, so be prepared to teach them the rules early in life.
We strongly believe in responsible breeding, only breeding from dogs that have passed a range of tests. While this doesn't guarantee a puppy will be free of genetic health issues, it does mean we do as much as we possibly can to reduce the likelihood of it occurring.
Siberian Husky DNA testing is done to screen for the following diseases:
X-Linked PRA (Samoyed/Husky type)
Other screening is done to identify:
Hip and elbow displaysia
Before our puppies go to their new home, they are fully vaccinated, micro-chipped, wormed, sterilised and registered with Dogs West on the 'Limited Register'. You will also receive a puppy pack containing the food they are used to, a file packed with all the information you need along with 6 weeks of free puppy health insurance with PetPlan.
