Everything Husky! - your complete resource for information on Northern breed dogs

'Everything Husky! - Home Page

Husky Rescue Organizations


In December 2009, a search on Google using the term +husky +rescue resulted in 438,000 Web pages being found (more than 20 times what there were on Alta Vista in 1999!) - the dogs on these sites are not "bad" dogs, they are dogs in difficult, often tragic circumstances not of their own making. Adopting an Alaskan Malamute, Samoyed, Siberian Husky or any other type of "husky" takes committment and an understanding of the unique characteristics and personalities of Northern breeds. Here at Everything Husky! we will do all we can to ensure that the information you need is close at hand.
