How much do siberian husky puppies usually cost?

I've ALWAYS wanted one…and just curious…not for breeding or anything, just for a pet!
Adopting from the SPCA or Husky Rescue not only saves lives but you get lots of "extras" for one low price. Ask whoever you do get one from if they have problems keeping the dog in the yard. These dogs were bred to run over 100 miles a day and need an extreme amount of exersize. They are extremely smart too. I have 2 friends with them and they have had to cement their fences into the ground, raise them to 8 feet and get a special lock on their gates, and the dogs still get out so regularly that the veterinarians and rescue groups in the area know them (dogs and owners) by name. Make sure you have them microchipped as well as keep lots of identification on their collars. Introduce yourself at your local rescue centers, you will be seeing a lot of these people. Oh, and Huskies are LOUD too. Ask lots of questions about any dog you are thinking of taking, all dogs are different, and you may be able to find a mellow one.

    If you live in a warm/hot climate most of the year don't get that pet. If you're in Alaska or some cold weather state, ok.

    um.. anywhere from probably 300 to 1000. If you are gonna get one that is just a husky, like you dont need akc papers or anything then you are looking at not more than 1000. They can get a lot more than that if you want one from like a good line of genes

    Very expensive, I would try looking for a half breed or seeing if you have something like animal aid in your area. They sometimes get huskies, and they'll be a lot more affordable. Most of the dogs and cats, they get are rescue, abandon and dogs no longer with a home. That's how I got my dog.

    I STRONGLY encourage you to check out your local humane shelter, rescue, or "dog pound". They may ask for an adoption fee (~$50-$75), but it's much less than paying a breeder and more importantly you are saving a life!!

    If it just soup then they dont cost a lot..But roasted, or with vegetables they cost a lot. Try your local chinese take away, they will have more options. LOL just joking. Siberian huskys are a bit expensive depending on the pedigree. They can go up to 2000$ and I dont think they really worth it. The cons? -It is barbaric to have them in a warm country, they really suffer. -They are the most unintelligent dogs, and you cant train them. The pros? -Very sweet and playfull! -Always happy. Forgive me about the joke above, just trying to be funny I guess :)

    I bought one for my husband for Christmas this year. We live in Illinois. He was over a grand, but that was from a pet store. Breeders are going to be less expensive. It depends on what you want. If you get the dog from a pet store it will have a micro chip in it, some training, plus a warranty from defects. It is up to you. They are great dogs.

    Males usually run around $600; females $800. Sometimes they're more expensive but that is usually because they're champions. Come from good lineage that sort of thing. If you're in a warmer climate (anywhere south of PA) I'd consider a short haired dog, or you'll have to shave your husky during the warmer months.
