How old do huskies get?
About 12-15 years. Maybe a bit more.
Siberian huskies are from Siberia
females to be 35-50 pounds & 20-22" at the withers, and males 45-60 pounds, 21 to 23½ inches at the withers.
Average life span for a husky is 10 to 14 years. Longest lifespan is 17 years.
husky. huskies is plural, and husky is right
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
Practically all dog food packaging (at least that sold in the US) includes a chart showing how much to feed a dog based on their weight and age. One such chart indicates t…hat a 21-50 pound puppy over 20 weeks old should be fed 3-6 cups of food a day, based on a standard 8-ounce dry measuring cup. For a pup under a year old weighing 51-100 pounds (which probably includes your husky), the amount goes up to 8-10 cups a day. This estimate is sure to be on the generous side, since these guidelines are self-serving. 80 ounces is quite a lot of food per day - and after all, the more you feed your dog, the more often you'll need to buy the food! If you doubt the accuracy of such a guideline, check with a vet's office. They should be willing to answer such a question on the phone. I've learned from experience that a good alternative to feeding a "fixed" amount is to give a puppy access to a full bowl of food twice a day, and let him eat until his interest wanes. When it does, that's an indication that he's had enough, and you should pick up the remaining food. If he empties the bowl and eagerly sniffs around for more, you might oblige him with another half-bowl or so, but be aware...if you let them, many pups will eat more than they really should. This approach helps you determine what their needs are as opposed to their wants, and also helps them learn what and when "dinnertime" is, getting them on a schedule that's compatible with yours. Whatever guideline you use, watch your pup closely over time for any signs that they are underweight (a "pinched" look or prominent ribs) or overweight (their sides bulge or bow outward) and adjust the amount of food accordingly. An easy rule of thumb is: if you can see a dog's ribs, he's too thin; if you can't feel his ribs, he's too fat.
The average for males(I believe) are 45-60,females are 35-50 lbs. My 12 month old female is 38lbs. It seems there are many ppl who think that siberians should be huge. I use…d to think that as well, but they are 'medium' sized dogs, not large. They are often mistaken for Alaskan Malamutes; which are a bigger breed.
at five weeks they should still be drinking milk from their mother
she just celebrated her 10th bday june 17th
Huskies were bred to pull sleighs across the Antarctic full of goods and people. They can run for up to 14 hours a day in sub-zero temperatures. This is an amazing breed with …unbeatable endurance.
The ideal age at which to remove a husky (or any other) puppy from its mother is 8 to 12 weeks, and they should not be removed before 7 weeks under any circumstances.
