I recently put my eldest Siberian Husky down, whom I loved with all my heart, he was my best non-speaking friend.  I would wrap things around him after he could no longer walk; assisting him outside to try to lay on the grass and do his thing or just to give him the wonderful fresh air.  After awhile he could no longer assist even a little in getting him outside.  My sibe weighed around 70 lbs.
To cut this story short my hubby and I finally decided that it was best for all to put our most loving companion down.  That in and of itself was a difficult thing to come to terms with.
Pando, our sibe, was always sleeping, and when he wasn't sleeping since he could no longer walk or see, and barely heard anything; he would voice himself instead.  I was so afraid that he was afraid, no matter how much we would be there and lay with him' for hours.  He would still wake up crying.  Finally, we decided that maybe he is telling us that he no longer wishes to be here.  
One day we called up our vet and asked him to come and put Pando to sleep.  It was a very nervous day after realizing in our heart of hearts this was the right thing to do.
On February 9th of this year around 6:42pm the doctor gave my best friend a shot that would last forever.
Pando lived to be 15 1/2 years old.  That is what patience and love will do for you.

With regard to Deborah's note.  I too had to heart brokenly put my loyal best friend to sleep at 3:05pm on 16 February 2004.  Kara had turned 15 years old on 28 January 2004.  Kara was everything to me and when I went through a period of breakdowns and post traumatic stress disorder, leaving me unable to leave my bedroom, it was the unconditional love of my husky who got me back on track.  With a nudge of her nose to get me out of the bed through to the vocal songs of her howls.  I loved her dearly and when the family sat around her on that dreaded day in February at home it was the last time I would feel such a presence of love so dear.  Kara like Pando also needed to be helped outside the house to go to the toilet and watch the stars at night with a towel under her back legs for assistance.  Although her sight was still very good she had a growth in her stomach, a cancer which grew quite large and at the end as the vet said, "she was a very tired old lady who needed to sleep".  I know that I cannot face having another pet although my boyfriend has a little 8 yr old stray and when we first met last year purchased a 6 wk old female husky called Mischa.  She will be 1 yr old on 1 May and it is extremely hard for me to deal with my great loss and at the same time return the affection to this other little thing.  I will always treasure Kara for ever and she will always be in our hearts.  Love always to my "wolf" Kara I know she wouldn't be missing a beat wherever she is now just like when she was alive.  Her ashes live in our loungeroom in a gorgeous china urn with carved roses and pictures adorn her memory throughout our house.

It seems as though people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. You describe your parents as "controlling" but your childlike wish to control the discussion makes me think...Maybe your parents realize your obvious immaturity means you are not responsible enough to care for a dog. A pet requires unselfish love, not judgemental behavior. Next time you feel the need to make others feel bad, maybe you should consider why you need to torture others and make them feel bad. That Siberean Husky may turn out to be your only friend.

To the girl that hates huskies.You are the most spoiled brat I have ever seen in my life.I have had 2 dogs,one was a shar-pei and the other was a huskie.They both lived to be 14 and 15 years old.In my opinon ,they had more sense then you will ever have.You are as hate full as a child can be.Your parents should never get you anything,including shoes,clothes,food,.Your manners are the worst in the world,and you should be given nothing,but a swift kick in your rear.You will never amount to anything in life with the attitude you have.And as the old saying goes,what goes around comes around.I really do not expect you to understand this because you are a sub human.

hello everyone, i am the proud owner of a howler.....he is definitly more like a man than i can say. he aggravates me one minute, but does something so comical and cute the next second that i can't stay mad. although he is hard headed and VERY independant. he is sooo loyal and sweet. he stays right beside me all day long when i sleep and when i call, he comes running. it took a while, but i have really grown fond of my howler. he is dubbed NANOOK. i couldn't think of any other name, so i took the name from the movie, "THE LOST BOYS". so far every day is an adventure. he is getting to be about a year old now and i think he is loosing some of his puppiness, but his adult maturity hasn't stopped his affection and loyalty and we still play chase sometimes. he is soon to be a proud daddy too. well, just wanted to sound off about my puppy! much love to all others who have discovered this interesting and sometimes exasperating, but all around wonderful form of best friend!

I am so happy to hear how all of you loved your siberians. I myself have one, I was doing volenteer work at an animal shelter, and came across a 1 year old He was so adorable with these huge Blue eyes. He gave us these sobby puppy eyes that just said "take me home". As soon as I came home, I talked to my parents and tried my best to convince tem. They knew I really wanted him because I cried on my way home from the shelter thinking of how sad and lonely he was. well, the next day we decited to addopt him and he came home with us. It took him a while to adjust and start eating again. He is now a healthy, wonderful, clever white and black/gray. happy husky, and if you would like to see pictures of him, feel free to e-mail me at akopec157@hotmail.com ..Id love to share my pup with others. Hope that you enjoyed my happy story among these sad ones. I dont want to think about my pup dying and he has some time to go through with me, from college, to first job, to having children and many more memories and adventures in life.

This is for all the dog lovers out here. I have a 14 year old Pomeranian and a 3 Year old Siberian Husky, I would not trade either of them for anything. I just got told today that my Pomeranian has a heart problem due to old age. I think people like Nicolette she be thankful for the pet they have, both the Pom'sand Husky are wonderful loyal animals. I do pray that both my dogs live happy wonderful life with my husband and me, becaus losing a dog that you have had 14 years is just like a son or daughter to you.

Nicolet you shouldent be cruel to a pet that has been given to you it can be a great friend and companion, just because you whant a Pomeranian it doesent mean you will throw away your new family member. Every dog has a fealing so please dont hurt it why don't you accept it?. It may love you forever. So dont be rude and hesitate just give it a hand and your love and you'lsee that it will love you and never let you down.

PS:Its realy rude and cruel that you talk about an animal that was born to have a loving home and at the end its heart broken.

          Think about it!.

This is in response to Nicolette.  You must be about 12 years of age considering your lack of proper grammar and English.  If you're older than that, you've had a terrible education and you're nothing more than a little spoiled brat.  My Sibe is now approaching his 7th year and has considerably "slowed down" in pace.  Time is catching up with him.  I now regret wishing that he was no longer a hyper "pup".  He has, BY FAR, been a dog that people could only dream of having.  He's never had a session of "professional obediance", yet has always been a perfect gentleman.  Literally!  The neighbor kids come over and crawl and roll all over him.  He has never shown an ounce of aggression and has always welcomed the extra "company".  Nicolette---grow up and come to realization.  The world doesn't revolve around you.  Pets, whether a Sibe or a Pom are furry gifts that we are to appreciate.  You're parents would get a better companion out of a Sibe than they would from you!

It has just been four days that my Siberian Husky, Nakita passed away. It was approximately 2:10 pm on January 1st, 2005, Nakita took in her last breath of air. This was an untimely, unexpected death. Nakita has been part of the family for the last short eight years. She has brought me much joy, love, and most of all companionship. Prior to her death, I had been bedridden due to the flu. Every cough, sneeze, or aching pain I had, Nakita would be my side to check up on me to make sure I was fine. Such loyalty and love one can not imagine to receive from such an animal. It even feels disrespectful to call her an animal. Although Nakita did not display any immediate illness, other than a slight limp which she was being treated for, the veterinarian said that she may have suffered a mild heart attack. She did not make it in time for the doctor to be able to attend to her, other than check for her vital signs. My only consolation at this time is that Nakita did not suffer a long term illness, of which I have compassion for all the pet owners; as well as your average day to day families that go through such horrific turmoils. For all those that do read this message, enjoy every moment that you have with your loved ones, be it pet or person(s), for life is too short to take for granted. May Nakita's spirit remain in our hearts and lives forever! We love you Nakita!!

I also agree with Rachel and Tiffany. I have a total of six dogs, including my 3 year old husky and let me tell you, I would not trade my dogs for anything! When your human friends can be two faced and fake, your dog, your husky will always be there loving you. You are so wrong Nicolette, saying you hate it and want it to die. You probably are not even giving the dog a chance. Don't judge the dog because of breed, get to know the dog,  give it a chance, you might just find out how good a friend you got there. And if you get to know and still don't really like it, then find it a home where someone will love it and take care of it. But just remember that when you need a friend and your "friends" are not there, that husky will be! Trust me I know.

Nicolette I'd have to say that you should be thankful for what you have, so many people do that. Try talking to your parents, don't get mad just tell how you feel. I'm sure they just tried to make you happy because they love you.If you don't want your husky then maybe you should consider selling it. Talk to you later.

I highly doubt "Nicolette" is even a real person. If it is, then she's probably a spoiled brat or a child who isn't getting enough attention from her parents. Notice that she ended her message with "thought you all would want to know". Either she's extremely arrogant (spoiled) or she's just begging people to pay her attention. Nicolette, if you ever come back to read this, I think that you and your parents need to have a civil discussion about what's really bothering you. Please don't take your anger for your parents out on your dog, who is innocent in this matter.

I had a siberian husky once, my very 1st dog ever... his name was wolfie and he was big and the best dog in the world. I got him when he was 1 and left him when he was 3 and about to turn 4.We would do everything together until me and my family had to move.Of course im only 13 so I had to go along with them.For my last 3 days staying in California, I left him with my coach becuz if not he would go to the pound. so, there he stayed but then my coach gave him away after 3 weeks.I am now in Mexico and it sucks. I miss my baby so much u would all know that becuz it was my first dog ever and i love dogs and cats.my cat however ran away after being with me for 4 years.I miss them both an awful lot and i love them, i cry every night just wishing i could have them back.

Nicolette, you are obviously seeking some sort of attention, which, of course you are getting. However, I would imagine that no one else really gives a darn about what you think of Siberian Huskies, Siberian Huskies' life spans, or the life span of any other dog. Grow up and stay out of question/answer sites you have no business in. Our Siberian, Dakota, is a dear, sweet, loving, and devoted friend who just turned 11. I hope she stays with us for a long time.

The love you guys had for your huskies speak for itself.  You are awesome souls and your dogs were very lucky to have had you.  May I recommend putting a nice memoriam of them on the rainbow bridge or at least put their names on the bridgelist for the candlelight ceremony to remember them?  I have a wonderful Siberian that will turn 9 this November, Keiana is her name.  I have lost a husky before and words cannot do justice to your breaking hearts, i know.  I put my husky on the rainbow bridge, look for her as Dakota Bear's Raven Sky.  It did help, knowing that others were praying for her and I.  I will do the same for you..

You can imagine one day when i came home from work, I always talk to him when I walked through the door and he for the first time wagged his tail. You just cant imagine how happy I was.

My husky is currently 12 years old and seems to be on his way to the same things as the others huskies discussed.  My dog is loving and loyal and I don't know what we would do without him.  I think that Nicolette needs to realize that people come to this site, and ask this question because maybe they are worried about the life of their own dog ... this is not the place to post your childish whining ... grow up and show a little compassion.

My female siberian husky, Madeline, was 100% full-blooded husky -- AKC registered -- etc. and lived to be older than 17 1/2 years old. She was born May 28, 1988 and we put her to sleep on November 30th of this year (2005). She was THE BEST husky and friend in the world and I miss her DESPERATELY! Having the vet and nurse come to our home to put Madeline down was the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life..but she was literally starving to death (wasting away) and was only 31 lbs on her last day. She needed to be carried outside (which we didn't mind) and couldn't see very well...she was tired and had given us her unconditional love, life and devotion for 17 1/2 years... I still cry each night (it is 2 weeks today) and he remains are in our room... she is still with us in memory, spirit and love!

We live in Australia (and no, it doesn't seem too hot for our huskies, though we do take some measures to protect them on very hot days) and I'm curious if anybody knows whether or not the life span changes because of the different environment the dogs might live in? Our 2 dogs are about 7 yrs old; the male one, Rusty, our red has 1 blue/gold eye and the other gold, Lara our girl, gray with black eyes. Gorgeous dogs both!!

You should be happy that you have a dog. Dogs will love you unconditionally if you love them back. I have a 12 and a half year old malamute husky and we just found out yesterday that she might have cancer behind one of her eyes. I am so scared that she will die when I am at school or while I'm out. Please if you can give me any advice, please do so. I would appreciate anything that might make me feel better. Thanks a lot.

I just happened across this site to factually answer my 12 year old'sconcern about the life span of our 12 week old husky.  I gave a quick answer of 10-15 years but wanted to check the facts and stumbled across the previous comments beginning with the pain associated with "putting down" a true friend...very touching to say the least.  Next, Nicolle's comments with other replysonly confirmed my intuition that simple dogs are more loyal, forgiving, and unselfish than humans can ever be.  I am not the best owner but I will definitely become a better one because of Nicolle's confirmation of how selfish (read...it's all about me) that we humans can be.  If you read this young lady, recognize that you have a lot to learn about life.  You will remember this one day.  We as humans must pass one day as well.  Hopefully you will realize this and also experience the unconditional love and acceptance exibited by the other husky lovers who took the time to write on this site.  Think about it...carefully.  Life is precious for us and it is enhanced greatly by the affection of a simple dog...husky or otherwise.

That person who made that comment about hating her husky probably doesn't even own one and just wants to upset you guys. I have one. She's 6 I think. I can't be sure because I took her over literarlly from some neighbors who were not treating her right. That was in 2000 and they said she was about 4 months at the time I discovered her. that's all I know about where she comes from. She's the best thing for me since my two cocker spaniels, who REALLY DIDN'T like her, died. They were like 14 and 12 and I think she got on their nerves because she was a huge puppy when they met her. It's very hard to deal with a dog-child dying. It's a shame that people without animals just don't identify with it. It really is like losing a human. A life is a life and deciding to put that life to sleep hurts so much. It hurts worse than learning that a loved one died because YOU were not the one to put that loved one down. You always have to live with the thought that YOU made your dog's life end even if it was the best thing for them. I think all the time what if I did this or that or why did I not wait to see if this or that. It's just really hard.

I don't mind my huskie, but he gets annoying, I guess. Its just that I was soo close to my dog that died last summer, he wasnt a husky though. and he died of cancer when he was only 5. we were walking partners.But it wasnt long after the fact we got our huskie so maybe I hold a little resentment for him. I just wish he would stop getting out. we have a completely fenced in area, with a 8ft tall fence and a largish yard but the dog still gets out. and chewing up everything in the house, does the chewing thing ever stop? he knows how to open doors and cupboards, even turn the lazy susan to get the spoils. we come home to a mess almost every day. it is soo frustrating. He is a family dog and I agree I do love him when he is not being a destructive psychopathic escape artist. Though we take him out for walks daily and spend most of the day giving him attention, he is still a destructive maniac. I love the breed though. beautiful dog. I feel lucky to have one. though I wish he was better trained. he is almost one year old.

I have a male husky and he is 14 and 1/2 years old. I have had him since he was 7 weeks old. He is beautiful, black and white with the most gorgeous blue eyes. The problem is he can hardly see or hear. His hind legs are unstable and he can't really sit. He is terrified of thunder and lightening. He is getting out of the yard by bending the bars with his teeth. Yes, he is still very strong. Now, if it just sprinkles he freaks out and tries to get out of the yard. He is not an indoor dog. I can't keep him inside that is not his quality of life. I am struggling with the idea that it might be time. My mind says it might be but I can't convince my heart. I love my dog with all my heart, but I don't want him to suffer.

You know ..
I came here to look up the average life span of a Siberian Husky because a good friend of mine has a Sibe who's hit old age and is suffering. He's 10-11 years old.
I was greeted with some good information and people talking about how their's lived a bit longer.. etc..
When out of the blue there is this nasty, hateful post from some brat named Nicolette!

Nicolette, you need to learn something about respect and A LOT about kindness and love!

I pity your dog to no end!

That puppy lives his life for YOU! You're everything to him and you speak of him as if he were garbage!

Take a chill pill and take the time to sit down and look in his eyes! Because all he has for you is love!
Maybe you can learn something from him about unconditional love!
Most certainly you can learn something from in on how NOT to be so bloody selfish!

Thank you to the rest of you for the good information! It's really needed right now.

We've met many people who told us their Huskies lived from between 14-18 years.  One even said hers made it to 20.  It's much more common for them to live to 14-16 years than to pass at 12.  Our girl was 12 and she was running and jumping like a puppy one week, and succumbing to Liver cancer the next.  But cancer isn't old age.  She would easily have made it to 16 or 18 with the way the rest of her health seemed to be and how active and young she appeared.

It seems to me that you have no respect for gracious creatures such as Sibes. You do not deserve to own any dog with that approach to life, no wonder your parents chose a Siberian! They needed something that might compete with your domineering spoilt attitude!!

If you have a problem because your parents Husky is domineering over you then you need to stop the hissy fit and try to get friendly with him. Walk through doors first, pet him for being good, and ignore him if he's bad (Huskys read negative vibes)
If he understands you're in charge and you show him some respect, he might show some back! You need to earn it!

Both Siberians and Pomeranians -in fact any dog needs lots of love, care and attention. If you are looking for a cute little handbag dog then, really girl, you need to notice that dogs are not a fashion accessory, they are a part of a family.

Sort it out Missy!!

Nicolette you need a husky, only a husky could offer the coldest of hearts warmth and unconditional love.
I had to put my seven year old husky to sleep yesterday. I have been second guessing myself ever since. She was just as loyal as all of yours, always there to welcome you home, never caring about good or bad days...only days she could spend with you, nudging her nose between your body and arm creating her own hug, on and on. She had many of the same ailments that you all speak of, blank stare, inability to support weight or walk, constant crying. I don't have any great words, other than that she was truely an unconditional friend that made me smile everytime I saw her. I will miss her more than anyone will ever know. I feel like a piece of me has been taken and lost. forever

Nicolette you spoiled little brat. I'm on my second of two Sibe'sand I wouldn't trade her companionship with a need to be drop-kicked Pomeranian.  When you understand Sibe'sare the best with family and children and are territorial protective.

My bless Shasta of 14 1/2 is still to this day keeping our 2 1/2 male Rot in line to tell him who's boss. She also keeps the boxers on the other side of the fence at bay letting them know she's the boss.

Shasta still shakes with both paws, lays down and bellies up on command to this day.  Poor baby is loosing some hair and I can tell that her little left eye is starting to sit in a little.

I'm praying that Shasta passes in her sleep so neither of us have to go through the stress of the vet. I love her so very much.

I have a 13 year old Siberian Husky.  I got her when she was 1 1/2 yr. old.  She is a trickster.She kept running away.  So we got the invisible fence to keep her in. That lasted about 4 months.  She would sit at the warning area and let her batteries run down then walk right out of the yard.  I thought about giving her away but i felt I was the only one that would put up with her and not abuse her, her previous owner abused her. This past year she hasnt tried to dig out and run away, we let her dig her din and she seems to be happy with that.  She is having problems getting up now it started about six months ago.  She loves people I am so happy I decided to keep her, she loves attention and she doesnt bark.

Really, I know this is a Q and A about how long does a Siberian husky lives NOT how somebody's parents are controlling or how a person doesn't like a dog. everybody has their opinions on certain dogs and other animals too. This is why you need to respect their decision whether somebody likes that decision or not. Another thing is the person asking this question, she does not want to hear how your best friend had to be put down, she just probably wants a straight up answer. I'm sorry for those who had lost their best friend. I too have a Siberian husky who is about a year and some odd months old and i look to some very happy years with my Siberian husky, Kita. To the owner of this question, I too wanted to know how long Siberian huskies lived for.
