Try Bide-A-Wee. They are in Manhattan, but I got my first Samoyed there for ~ $30. Or Google 'Husky Rescue' and see what comes up close to you.

As for the Furminator, definitely get one (get the long haired jumbo version, it's red). Also get a Shark vacuum (its the best I've ever used with fur, way better than a Dyson) as you will have fur all over the place and it never ends no matter how much you brush, it just gets worse twice a year when the coat changes.

edit: their site isn't working but it's http://www.ladatakennels.com/, Clinton, SC

Thanks for the info. I thought i'd need the short haired furminator because the short haired one says "For animals with hair up to 2inches."

Thanks. I've actually searched those exact words. I've come across a lot of different sites. Some are way too pricey and others redirect me to petfinder lol.

No it's fine, just don't brush too hard. I usually don't brush his scalp/face since I scratch it all the time with my hand.

Honestly mine didn't "allow" me to brush him until he was 3 years old, before that it was a struggle to get him to stay still while I tried to brush him. Now he just accepts what is about to happen

I got my husky a year ago from south Carolina. 400 for dog 300 for gas = 700. Better then 1000+ here in nyc. Love the dog. Do your research before buying.

Just trying to make it resonate with you. Whatever plans you have to make the fur "not a big deal" aren't going to work. They shed just for the sake of shedding, despite brushing them often... then they blow their coats.

Best of luck finding your new buddy though. The breed is beyond bada$$ once you've built a rapport.

I don't know who came up with this but its wrong, germans are not even in the same league as a Malamute when they blow their coat in the spring and fall.

Your talking a large can trash bag of hair twice a week for 3 weeks NO LIE Mine died at 14 about 10 years ago, I still get undercoat hair in my Jeep and its been dismantled and reassembled twice.. He was the largest breed too so the hair thing was epic. well over 125 lbs if I kept him running...

+1,000,000... and mine only weighs 55lbs. Hair was everywhere when I disassembled my rear shelf in the E46 to add padding under there, and he rarely rides in that car.

That's awesome dude, good luck finding a pup!

Last spring my mother and I were looking for a new dog, I reallyyyy wanted a cockerspaniel and she really wanted a poodle mix. We were looking all over pet finder and local shelters for anything that fit but to no avail. Finally we stumbled upon a local breeder of Cockapoo's, the cockerspaniel and poodle mix. It was some older lady who lived on like a farm or something of the sort. She had been breeding these dogs for like 40 years or something, she obviously really knew what she was doing. It was cheap as a shelter and the dogs are perfectly breed and even paper trained by 8 weeks when we got her.

She's actually a year old today now that I think about it, wow!

If you decide you want a smaller dog let me know! haha
But basically what I'm trying to say is, if you're patient, eventually you will find the right dog, and right breeder/shelter/etc.

10? weeks:


~9 months:



Oh! We found the breeder in an ad in the local paper! Check there! Some of the older folks who do this wouldn't necessarily post online you know, they would do it old school - in the paper!

Hello BMW Experts!
My friend does a lot with "Aussie Rescue" in PA. I'll try to get the contact info & post it.
The attached pic is of my Samoyed & his best friend 'Noodles' the Cockapoo. Noodles now lives in Fla, but liked it better up here in NYC. But Noodles is a great dog; I wish he was still in our nabe.
