Have discovered that first time husky lover always find it difficult go get pedigree husky pappies around the United State. So we have done a wide range of research on United State Husky breeders and came up with this website to make it easy for husky lovers around the United State to re-home purebred husky puppies from reputable breeder.
New litters may not be available at some periods of the year but you are sure to get what you want from this few breeders

I think most people here primarily have rescues. Locally we have a few breeders where i live and some super cute blue eyed pups are up on the bulletin board at the general store right now. I do know plenty pure well bred dogs end up at the animal shelter and sometimes breed rescues. I know of several in Colorado.
Just offhand i looked at huskypalace and i personally would look for a breeder that does one breed. They also do dobermans so i read that as they are in for the money not the betterment of any particular breed. I would almost suspect that they are a broker not a breeder. Papers do not guarantee that its not a puppy mill dog bought for resale by a puppy broker. I did not look at any of the other links, i have too many dogs as it is.
My personal thoughts aside, akc papers CAN be forged. Someone local to a property i own just had over 100 dogs removed from his property. In cali he was found guilty of forgery of akc papers and selling dying puppies. In Oregon he was charged with animal abuse and neglect and sent to prison for 7 years and then he comes to Colorado and does the same thing again. So really until the akc does genetic testing or dna mapping with the registration all papers are suspect.
So if anyone wants a heeler/cattle dog mix over 100 will be adoptable soon

I wouldn't exactly put silver moon as a super reputable breeder either. They make no mention of showing or working, and some of their dogs have obvious faults, so they aren't breeding for betterment of the breed either from what's on their site. Green Farms doesn't have enough information on their site to tell if they are reputable, but the number of puppies they have available currently with zero mention of policy or pedigree makes me skeptical. They come across as a broker, not breeder. Aruff siberians health tests which is nice, but again, not breeding for betterment of the breed, perse. States that she breeds for the best look, health, and temperament, but some dogs are out of standard so she's breeding for best look to her eye, not to the breed standard necessarily. Some of her dogs have worked so I would be particular about what pair I would accept a puppy out of from here. Husky Palace, oy...what Emily said.
We do have people here who have purchased puppies from reputable breeders on the forum. Many of their contacts are made by going to events and talking to people who are active with their dogs. Good breeders have proven lines. they work their dogs and prove that the parents (not just the parent of the parent 5 generations back) are quality dogs. Go to a show, go to a trial or race, talk to the competitors there with their dogs, then show some patience. Eventually you will find someone with a liter from a dog you have seen in action and can trust to be quality stock.
Papers are almost too easy to come by in the US actually. I have rescue dogs with no papers and could apply and be awarded AKC papers that will allow them entry into about any AKC event minus the actual show arena. With that thinking all I would need to do is get an unfixed female, apply for papers from AKC and then breed her with a papered male and I could have papered puppies. Quite simple. Doesn't make them quality pups. Papers don't make a quality breeder either. It's what backs the papers and the motivations behind the breeders that make reputable breeders.

@william72 Let's see, you come in and make one post which is tantamount to an advertisement for several kennels.
SiberianHuskyPups Looks to be a site for a kennel that does take a reasonable amount of pride in their dogs. They state that all of their breeding stock is OFA/CERF tested but I only found one dog and then had to go offsite, where those specs were noted. While there are no puppies/dogs available, which is good from my viewpoint, their website's "Standard Pricing Guide" shows two different prices for puppies $1200 on one page and $2000 on another. A good point is that they have a 5 year health guarantee but nowhere on the site can I find what it covers and what action they take / allow if a dogs health fails.
SilverMoonHuskies They maintain that their breeding stock is CH but, as @TwisterII
mentions, they show nothing about where that 'Championship' comes from - how do they work their dogs? They have two litters born within two weeks of each other which stinks of puppy mill and with a price of $3000 per pup you'd think they's at least mention OFA/CERF or health guarantee.
GreenFarmSiberians Well, you started out with a reasonably reputable breeder - from what I can see - followed by one that is less that interesting, followed by one *I* wouldn't touch. They have 12 puppies availble at the moment which suggest at least two litters at the same time - again, sounds like puppy mill. They don't mention OFA/CERF or health guarantee even passing. They don't even mention who the sire and dam of the pups are nor their status, are they CH quality or something someone picked up at the dog pound. While the prices from the previous two seem a bit high, GreenFarms is way too low for a dog that's had any health tests, for example.
aruffSiberianHusky Ah, finally one with who I find few qualms. They have a BBB rating of A+, they show the OFA/CERF status of their breeding stock, but then fail to show the ancestry of any particular dog. Again they don't show how they work their dogs - ring or trail? At one time the did business as 'bestakcpups' and still show on the web under that name. They also breed Shiba Inu's and another breed that I can't remember at the moment but that places them squarely in the puppy mill category *in my opinion* One thing I'll note, at one time the had a lifetime health guarantee as long as you kept them on NuVet vitamins - as soon as you took them off the NuVet vitamins the health guarantee was null and void. Of course you had to buy through them so they were able to determine that you were keeping your end of the bargain.
Okay, I'm done trashing the trashy kennels.
Take a look at TrePakSiberians who, of course, don't have any puppies available at the moment. (( Why not? Most kennels breed to fulfill their own needs of breeding better stock to show or race, if their pack is 'full' there's no need to breed. They may sell 'overstock' but they don't breed to sell. ))
They show their dogs and have several BIS, BISS, CH, etc in their pack. Her web sie shows that she's proud of her dogs and the work they've done together.
notes the AKC papers, regrettably, are about worth the paper they're printed on. From a good breeder they're worth their weight in gold, from one who's not as picky - well they make good paper to pick up dog stuff with.
