    Not the right kind of dog for you, i disapprove, talk to SLW about setting you up with a nice greyhound.

    I also feel guilty buying a puppy with so many dogs that are in need of rescuing. I'm just so drawn to this arctic breed.

    Talk me out of it! Dammit!

    Do you have a good vacuum cleaner and love to use it----a lot? I had 2 Norwegian Elkhound in St Louis, which is considerably colder than Florida. There were rolling dust balls of hair. I had to clean a lot. The hair was everywhere, even though I brushed them outside every other day. When they blow coat, I would have a trash bag full of undercoat from just the female from brushing her.

    They elkhounds, according to my vet, are more docile than the huskies and definitely more than the malemutes. I agree that I love the look of the breed, but it was all that hair that drove me to the greyhounds. After getting greys, I never looked back. It was such a relief to have dogs that didn't shed buckets full of hair in the house. I think the northern breeds do better up north. My elkie used to lay out on a chaise lounge on my patio when it snowed. She would stick her tongue out to get the snow.

    Do you still have a cat? Be careful with any dog with a high prey drive. My first greyhound, Jessie, lost his first home because he tried way to hard to get the kitties. I never had cats, so he was fine with us, a sweet dog with people and with other dogs, even small ones. But he hated cats.

    With any dog be sure that they're cat safe. There are many greys who are cat safe, tested with a brave volunteer kitty.

    My male elkhound, Jeep, tried to kill my son's cat. He had the kitty's head in his mouth before we could stop him. He was biting down, but the brave little kitty bit Jeepers tongue and he let go. Again, Jeep was a good dog, but he obviously wasn't a cat fan. So northern breeds can have that high prey drive, too.

    Our Bella doesn't have those beautiful blue eyes, but she has equally beautiful green eyes.

    Yes, Sibes require a daily brush and probably a weekly brush overhaul. Normally, in the North, they have two heavy shed "seasons"...but in Florida, they shed year round because of the obvious.

    I am installing wood floors during the second week of February, mid tone to dark tone, wood, so hair will probably show a lot.

    I now have 3 cats thanks to the rescue group I help out as I can proudly wear the foster failure label now...

    Sibes are okay with cats if the they think they are part of the family, which can only happen if you get one as a puppy. I spoke with a Sibe rescue/breeder in Orange County Florida who said getting one at the puppy stage would be fine. He didn't recommend a rescue as he said even if the rescue was fine with cats he grew up with, he may not be fine with mine. Huskies also need a firm leader as they aren't trainable if they think you are weaker than they.

    They certainly are a handful and I have read extensively about them...that's why I have doubts whether I'd be the right home for them.

    My father has a neighbor with one who is very well behaved and I have a snowbird Canadian couple who bring their Sibes during the season in Florida...also well behaved.
    They are also runners, and I am not. I could do daily walks with them but might not be enough to keep up with them.


    I read about greyhounds too, supposedly great for people like me as they are also couch potatoes. But I am trying to be more active.
