Although huskies are one of the dog breeds most closely related genetically to wolves, their behaviour resembles wolf behaviour as much as any other domestic dog.
Dogs and wolves both have 42 teeth and both like to eat meat.
Both are social creatures and affectionate, but male huskies, like male dogs in general, do not participate in pup-rearing, and they do not form packs with other dogs like their wild cousins.
Huskies are more playful, but you have more room for misunderstanding a husky than a wolf.
If you read a wolf wrong, you can die. If you read a husky wrong, you can probably more easily plead ignorance and gain forgiveness.
Huskies act more like a wolf than many of the “more domesticated” dog breeds.
What I mean by that is that they are highly independent and very assertive and strong in personality.
They play rougher than many other dogs do, so other dogs can easily mistake their play for aggression.
They are very energetic and will dig your yard full of holes if you leave them alone out there.
Plus they jump like ninjas. We saw ours jump up on our 5-foot fence and perch on top while he decided which way he was going to run more than once.
There was no leaving him outside unattended because he would do what husky love to do, which is run.
