I have a husky mix, malamute(mom) and samoyed X siberian. She got very ill in her early life, which lead to an emergency hysterectomy. I got this dog because she 'leaks', not a good house pet. Anyway, after this surgury, she lost most of her coat, and since this surgury she has shed at the wrong time of year. Four years now and her system is still off. What gives?? Now I have a house pet that leaks and should be outside but she's as delicate as a chiuaua(sp) in my northeren climate and would certainly die if I left her outside....like a normal husky.
