How old do huskies get?
I personally own a male Siberian Husky who will (hopefully!) get 17-year old in five weeks from now. I have no idea if it is a record and I would be surprised if it was, but I… believe it is a good old age for this kind of dog (and I do hope it won't stop there, as he has been my buddy since 2-month old, so I can't imagine how I will feel when he's no more there...). ________________________________________________________________ ***01/01/09 I have a husky, named Muffy, who is 17 years 8 months old. The most amazing part of it though is that she is in near perfect physical health. Her only problem is that she cannot hear very good. She still runs fast, plays and doesn't have a creeky bone in her body. I am hoping I will have her many more years to come. I have had her almost half of my life. Heather
Huskies are a domesticated breed, meaning they live with humans. There might be the occasional stray that has gone feral, but apart from that there are no wild huskies….
I have 4 Siberian Huskies now, but my last one lived until the age of 11 or 77 years in dog years
I have a red Siberian Huskey and she will be sixteen this december. Her health is good. She's less active, a little hip stiffness and some clouding in the eyes.
As soon as they are old enough to walk you should use a harness for their lead to attach to for walks otherwise they can become very disobedient when out and about. Be patient… though and take it steady with them. It is their instinct to pull and so they'll need to reassurance not to pull unless instructed to do so.
He is about 9-12
you need to elaborate on that a bit more for an answer i think .. do you want to know how old the husky breed is in general ?
how long do Siberian huskies live for
About 12-15 years. Maybe a bit more.
Well the Siberian husky has to be at least 1 year 1/2 and older to be in a sled race unless it is very very strong at 1. Well hope this works :)
Ferlin Husky was 86 years old when he died on March 17, 2012. (birthdate: December 3, 1925)
at five weeks they should still be drinking milk from their mother
2 years of age. The female needs to be fully grown and mature enough so there will be no chance of birthing complications as well as no need for a possible c-section.
she just celebrated her 10th bday june 17th
The standard though that a dog's ages 7 years for every one human year untrue because the first year or two of a dog's life represent the human equivlant of 18-25 years. This …ratio varies with size and breed. Size and breed influence the rate at which a dog ages. Smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger dogs, they may mature more quickly in the first few years of life. A large dog may mature more slowly at first but already be considered elderly at age 5 or 6. Small breeds aren't considered to be elderly until around age 10 or 11. As rough approximation, by 8 months to a year of age a dog has generally reached its full growth and is sexually maturity, although it might still be lanky and need to fill out to look like an adult, more than a puppy. This is similar to human teenagers. After the first two years, the ratio is about 5 dog years to 1 calendar year for small and medium breeds and 6-7 dog years to 1 calendar year for large and giant breeds. That is why at 10 years of age a Mastiff would be considered 80 years old in human years, while a Pug would only be 64.
