According to Miller, huskies can be a high-maintenance breed — and they’re definitely not for everyone.
“The breed is very active,” Miller said. “They have a lot of energy, so they need a lot of exercise. They have an extremely high prey drive. So we will not adopt these dogs out to anyone who has any type of small animal.”
Huskies also love being with other dogs and people, and they’re miserable when they’re left alone in the yard, she said. In fact, huskies are famous for escaping fenced yards and running away when they’re unhappy, according to Miller.
