Owning a Husky
Siberian Huskies are sled dogs and prefer cold and lots of exercise. A downside is that a lot of Siberian Huskies have hip and eye problems and needs to be brushed weekly. You also need some strong willed patience if you own a Husky. Though they have some downsides, Huskies bond with families and are great pets to own.
