January 17, 2002, VANCOUVER - To avert earlier problems caused by the Disney movies 101 Dalmatians and 102 Dalmatians, the Humane Society of Canada (HSC) is asking people not to buy a Siberian Husky on impulse after watching Disney’s latest movie Snow Dogs. The comedy movie, being released tomorrow, has several Siberian Huskies starring along side actor Cuba Gooding, Jr.

"Siberian Huskies are beautiful and intelligent dogs. However, imagine an energetic 60 pound dog with the temperament of cat, wandering around your house, who understands exactly what you want him or her to do - and who could care less," warns Al Hickey, HSC Western Regional Director. "A Siberian Husky is not for everyone."
