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.

Hi Everyone.

I'm new to this forum, and am hoping you more experienced Husky owners can give me some advice. I came across this girl recently at the local animal shelter.



She has a fantastic personality-- as you can see! The shelter's best estimate is that she is 10 years old, and I am wondering how much exercise you think a 10-year old Husky might need on a daily basis.

My wife and I are experienced dog owners, but we have never had a Husky before. Because we both work during the day, I want to make sure I know what I'm getting into before adopting this pup. Realistically, we could take her on two 30-minute walks a day. She is a sweetheart, but in fairness, if we cannot give her the daily activity she needs she would be better off with another family.

Any advice you have would be much appreciated. I'm very glad to have found this forum.

Cheers,
Sagar

At ten, two 30 minutes a day walks would be fine.
This girl needs love.
That and a some exercise would make the years she has left golden.
Thank you for considering rescuing her!

Thanks, Michael. That is very encouraging! I'm going to pay her a visit now at the shelter. She goes up for purchase tomorrow.

Go for it. I would have a vet look her over good for arthritis and go from there. My girl is almost 9 and two 30 minute walks would keep her more than content. By 8 many of our dogs have some level of arthritis so going on a fish oil like Bonnie and Clyde can really help. With a quality diet and a great home she could bring your family love for a while to come.
