    It's a kick ass grooming tool that thatches the hair out. Buy one from amazon as they are much cheaper there.

    WOW...that thing looks amazing! I would need one for long hair wouldn't I (for a Husky)? And also should I go with a large brush?

    Furmenators are great. We have a large one for the 60lb labradoodle.

    Not sure on the size. I'd go into Petco for advice(not to buy though). I apparently didn't know that pet brushes were a big ass business. It works on my cats like a champ. You just get piles and piles of hair. It's a really good tool to use inbetween daily brushings.

    Come on folks. He's not importing the dog from Alaska. He's more than likely getting one from a local person in Florida. Point? The dog is going to live in Florida whether he buys it or not.

    And they're amazing dogs. Incredibly loyal. If you bond with it you'll be it's pack mate and they get amazingly protective. I had two chows get in my backyard. My husky almost killed both of them before they could get out--anyone that came to my house was an enemy until the dog saw me with the person, then she was their best friend. She was great with kids as well. They require attention though, and if they get out of your enclosure they're a pain in the ass to catch. They like to wait until you're about 2 steps from them and then take off another 200 yards.

    I'm not getting it from Florida. I am actually buying from a great breeder in Missouri. However, it gets just as hot in the Midwest as it does here in the panhandle and everyone I have talked to says huskies are just fine in Florida. Many, many people own them down here and they are fine.

    Everything you said about the loyalty of your husky I have heard as well. I am very excited.

    I think it actually gets hotter in Oklahoma than it does in my part of Florida. Your July and August months are horrid. At least we get a sea breeze.

    Have you checked in to a rescue? It's such a great feeling to give a dog another chance.

    Yes I thought about it and I looked into it. But I kinda saw this dog and just loved it. It's hard to change your mind when you get your mind made up.

    Thanks, she's a Boston Terrier.

    I feel ya. I just hate breeders when there are so many unwanted animals that need homes. I think those rescue dogs love you even more, because you gave them a good home. I mean you do what you want. I'm sure the pup will have a good home.

    Not a fan of traditional breeders. I appreciate the desire to perpetuate certain traits, but most breeds have rescue programs now, too. I've had pure breeds (both of my basset hounds died this year), and I also did some basset rescues. This is my remaining doggie:

    Found him as a puppy freezing in a ditch. He is sweet, loyal, funny, gentle, rambunctious, protective, intelligent, and friendly (if I have approved you and you're not a cat or a squirrel). It's obviously your choice and you've chosen an excellent breed, but there is more than one way to, ahem, skin a cat. Just a thought.

    You live in FL. Don't punish that poor dog by forcing it to live in that climate. Unless you live in the pacific nw, Idaho, Montana, or AK do not get a Husky.

    I do adoptions on the weekends. You wouldn't believe the shape some dogs are in. People have to really work at that. It's especially nice to take a dog and over several times work with and make it adoptable. Even better is when someone comes back with a dog and you can see how they're grown and found a home.

    We have a half Boston Terrier, half blue American Staffordshire Terrier. She is a freaking awesome dog. She's Boston terrier size, but looks like a Staffy. We call her our mini-pit. Short hair, very little shedding, perfect for FLORIDA weather.

    I had a couple of wolf/malamute/husky mixes back in 2000. The malamute/wolf mix was super smart. He was one of the coolest dogs I've been around. I really would like to get another one some day.

    Why hate a breeder unless they're running a puppy mill? Some folks breed working dogs (lab, retrievers, etc.) and only have one maybe two litters a year. They sell their dogs to folks who are planning to use them for their bred purpose.
