Petfinder would have been a much better choice to look on-line. There's more than enough puppies and Huskies that need homes. With very few exceptions, anyone else is just breeding to make money.

My suggestion to anyone looking for a pet: Visit your local SPCA. So many abandoned animals there, just waiting for a loving family and forever home.
