As a Sibe Breeder I have been asked many tips and questions about purchasing a puppy from any breeder. Such as:

How do I know my pup is healthy?

How can I tell if my puppy is a pure bred?

What are some of the warning signs when purchasing from a non reputable breeder?

How can I tell if I'm buying from a standard puppy mill?

Do you think buying Siberian Huskies from a pet store is smart?


That is just to name a few..

When buying a Siberian Husky, first you want to ask yourself a few questions.  "Are you ready for the responsibility?" Yes Sibes are beautiful animals, but they come with a growing responsibility both mentally and financially. You must be financially prepared to take on providing a home for this Sibe along with food, vet bills, toys, grooming, and it is smart to have money put back as an 'accident' fund as well.

After you have sorted out everything financially you must pay close attention to the breeder you are interested in. Yes,INTERESTED in. You must first be interested in the breeder before the Sibe. It is never wise to purchase a puppy from someone you can't form a relationship with. Any reputable breeder will welcome you to their home and kennel,introduce you to their dogs and allow you to see first hand how they care for their babies. This should go on for a few weeks, even after you have notified said breeder of the puppy you are interested in.

As a breeder in business I invite my friends and 'costumers' over when my veterinarian makes our frequent house calls. That way they are right there and it is a learning experience for everyone. This also will push away any doubt that the pups may be unhealthy or I may be being dishonest with them.

How can you tell if your puppy is a pure bred? Any reputable breeder who invites you to their kennel will have a pedigree on every dog they have ever owned. Even if that animal is no longer with them. In order to responsibly keep their bloodlines in check they must maintain up to date copies of every dog they raise. In my kennel we have copies we hand out every time someone purchases a pup from us. You must ask for a pedigree even if the breeder does not offer one. If they do not have one and cannot get one then this should worry you, you may be buying from a puppy mill.

Warning signs for non reputable breeders and puppy mills As the buyer it is your job to ask as many questions as you possibly can and the seller is obligated to answer each and every one of them with proven facts. This is not the time to be shy your puppies health is at stake! Warning signs are: No present pedigree, selling pups when they are too young, no present veterinarian papers, they wish to 'meet' you somewhere instead of inviting you to their home, the pups are registered through a non reputable system.

Before purchasing a pup you should look up your states laws on animals. This will list the minimum age of sell for a large dog or small dog. Never buy from a breeder who sells their pups under 6 weeks of age. Although 6 weeks of age is often acceptable for large breeds of dog in some states it would be wise consult your local vet on the breed. The norm for large breeds of dogs such as Sibes is usually 6-8 weeks of age, Although I know some breeders who refuse sell until 12 weeks of age- I am often that breeder as well.

I do not advise you purchase from anyone who doesn't provide the above services or whose dogs are in harmful environments.

Do you think buying from a Pet Store is smart? I never condone buying any animal from a pet store. That is a whole different debate, it's personal preference but I advise you to look into how the pet store gets these animals and how they treat them before you go funding their cause.



I hope this helps you guys! I have been getting tons of questions but I answer all of them to the best of my ability. My knowledge is derived from many generations of owning and running a Siberian Husky Kennel, reading lot of behavioral books about them, dedicating most of my time to my own, and having frequent conversations with my veterinarian. If I am asked a question that I don't have an answer to,, I will consult with my Vet before answering because chances are I want to know as well. (If there is anything I may have forgotten or you have any additional information to add or updated information then feel free to add below!)  - BellaNamikaze
