Increase in abandoned Huskies

Published by at 6:27am 6th February 2012 (Updated 6:42am 6th February 2012)

The number of Husky dogs being abandoned is on the increase.

That's according to a Lancashire organisation who run an animal rescue group.

Many are bought as young pups and a few months down the line owners find they can't cope.

They were originally bred to pull heavy loads long distances through the snow.

Husky expert John Duxbury says they're not for everyone, "you don't realise how much they pull, if you're a bit older or frail then they'll pull you all over the place."

He added, "the biggest issue with them is seperation anxiety, if they're left alone for any length of time, they start being destructive."
