Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

If one or the other is unfixed, yes. Even if the male is fixed and the female isn't if she goes into heat he can still be affected by her and will try to hump and tie with her. She won't get pregnant but it is still a pain in the butt to deal with.

Female is fixed. Male is fixed. Still debating on whether or not to get him. Friends dog needs a new home due to job relocation so I'm tempted....

Now, if you'd said that in your original message you'd have gotten a reply from me. Since both of them, are fixed, you don't have the hormonal problems to deal with - and that's a big benefit.
Since Sasha was a "found" rescue, I kept her for about 6 months before having her fixed; even though Avalanche was fixed, he still mounted her (and the ruckus in the middle of the night scared the blazes out of me!!) Now that they're both fixed, they're just dogs ....
Considering the frustration you've had with Bandit, are you really sure you want to be thinking about a second?? Oh, I understand wanting to help out a friend, but two dogs are not necessarily easier than one - especially if one has been an issue.

Al honestly I weighed that but the past few weeks with it being nicer and more play/walks she has been easier to deal with. I think I have worked all my quirks out with her. Not saying there won't be more but I look back at a few mo,the ago. WoW! I've changed a while lot. I don't think j will take this other dog on but I am thinking. I have a few months to decide so I guess only time will tell

I am going to say this with trepidation...I am sure many (or all) will disagree with me. But here goes...

You MIGHT, and I emphasized the might, find that 2 are easier than 1 - if you have a fenced backyard. When my foot acts up and walking is difficult, or it is thunder/lightening/pouring rain or black ice and walking is not in my best interests, being able to let Ami loose on the premises with Archer gives both dogs as much exercise as they can use. Those boys sleep like the dead at night, when they are in, just happy to crash (Archer at our feet, Ami in the next room.) Since you seem to spend a lot of time at work, it might ease Bandits alone time.

It also may mean major rumpus room with your house as collateral damage lol!

You do, however, have to insist that both dogs mind their manners and sometimes its tricky, one will mind, you turn to the other and just as you get that one behaving, the other as begun to act up.

Caveat: Nowhere did I suggest you leave them outside in fenced backyard without you being home - they can dig out, climb out, people can come by and let them out...

I'm going to totally agree with this. I had Kohdi by himself for one year and the amount of time I had to put in to get him tired was probly triple what I have to put in now...and don't take that as laziness on my part because I'm anything but lazy, haha, but seriously, when a dog has another to keep him busy, he's a completely different dog. Kohdi used to sleep a lot...he can't do that anymore Smile there are other things to consider though too,  that *could* be new experiences for you, like...food guarding with the other dog, it's not as easy to take two on a walk as compared to one (not in all cases but often) etc.

Is the other dog a husky as well or a different breed?

Either way...it's awesome. Ideally I would have gotten the female first, but it didn't work out that way. My last two huskies, I had the female first and things went unbelievably great. So since you already have a female, if you do end up getting a puppy, you will have a lot of "help" in raising the puppy. Smile

We have a male and female about the same age, although the male came along about a year before the female. They get along well and enjoy chasing and wrestling in the backyard. They do tend to play rough.
The only real issue is that the female acts like an extremely jealous girlfriend around other dogs. Still working on that one..
Both are fixed.
