HERE are two dogs: an Alaskan Malamute (top photo) and a Siberian Husky (bottom photo). Both breeds have Siberian lineage and are therefore naturally suited to live in extremely cold environments of the Siberian Arctic.
The Alaskan Malamute here is shown walking on water in Alaska after a heavy rainfall covered the frozen lake. A beautiful dog living in its rightful place is something to behold. Picture was posted in Animal Moments.
The Siberian Husky is called Harvey and he lives chained in a squalid place inside a public cemetery in Pasay City, Manila. The photo was from a video taken by Pasay Pups who tries to improve the lives of animals in this area. Harvey's small house was from Pasay Pups.
The extreme summer heat in Manila is very ill-suited for a Siberian Husky, much more for Harvey who is chained outside and with only a small shelter to call home. One might wonder how someone in impoverished conditions get to own a Siberian Husky in the first place (who also owns a toy dog caged inside a retired tricycle).
Pasay Pups wrote: “Chained and caged dogs can only watch as life goes by. While we go to work and school; watch concerts and movies; and enjoy dinners out, vacations, and shopping; every day looks largely the same for dogs who are kept constantly confined. They are often denied adequate food and water, and of course companionship and freedom.
“Please don't keep your dog chained. If you see a chained dog in your neighborhood, do what you can to make their lives better. Give them tasty treats and fun toys, make sure they have access to water, and if they are friendly and the owner allows, take them for walks and off-leash playtime.”
Two separate studies done in 2013 and 2015 showed that the Alaskan Malamute shares a close genetic relationship with the Siberian Husky. Thickly furred double coat with erect triangular ears and distinctive markings, these canine cousins need to be in a cold environment. If you must keep one as pet, please make sure they don't end up like poor Harvey, a snow-loving breed who is wilting in Manila's hot weather. A true dog lover doesn't put vanity before his own dog's welfare. Sadly, it is not the case with Harvey and his owner. -- MetroPets
