Have you ever seen a siberian husky in st. thomas?

Have you ever seen a siberian husky in st. thomas? I have been accepted to the university. I have 2 huskies and am finding it impossible to leave them. I cant imagine this breed will appreciate the heat on the islands. Wondered if anyone has ever done this before?

It will depend where you live -- mine was 1/4 German Shepherd but still had the Huskie features and hair - he was happier when we had him trimmed closer and spent 99% of the time outside free -- very effective as a watchdog even though he was mellow. " Dat man hab a wolf dere" was a common reaction when I took him out - always on a leash then for sure!

We had a German Shepherd who had lots of hair and she adjusted real well. She laid on the cool tile.
She did love when we turned the AC on at night to sleep.
They will adjust. She did shed constantly.

There is a Chow on STJ that seems to have adapted well. Your dogs will certainly be happier with you than left behind with family wondering where the hec you are or worse yet ( and not an acceptable choice) left in a shelter.

I live on St Croix, and had to find a good home for my husky (leaved in Northeast).

I made this decision after spending several months living on St Croix, and couldn't imagine my husky doing well on St Croix. he loves the outside and playing in the snow. back in RI, he was miserable in the summer time.

The best advice I will give you, if your husky like the outside---dint take them. If they can be more of an inside pet, you keep the AC on for them(which will cost you $$$$$$$$ as electricity is .38 kilowatts in USVI), they will manage and you will have to do things with them at nite outside.

I was fortunate, I found a great home for him and he loves it---another dog, big yard he hangs out most of the day. It helps knowing he is happier in a good home than being here with me in St Croix

Hope this helps
