He is a Siberian, I've met him mother and father and they have amazing temperaments. I am a very active person, hiking and running all the time. I go out with my GDS off leash all of the time because I have her well trained. I am aware most husky's will not be off leash dogs, but I am going to try to train him to be with long leads, taking small steps. I know how to train a dog. lol

Who said I would be doing that? I never said I'd be leaving them alone when he was a puppy. I'm taking off work for a week or so when I first get him, then my best friend is going to be staying at my house while I work until he is old enough to be crated for potty training purposes. and even then I will be coming home for my lunch breaks. I want him for many other reasons, not just for my other dog, I just didn't want to spend forever and a day typing out all of my thought processes.

You can't just bring a new puppy home and let it have the run of the house . You need to keep him in a room where he can't get into trouble . I agree that you should do some research on the breeder . Did you meet the puppy parents to see what kind of temperaments they have ?
My Gypsy is well trained and is very sweet. She is used to puppies living with her (long story, had a roommate who watched family members dogs for them and brought them home with her for weeks at a time. I got out of there real quick and now live alone) and I know how to treat a new puppy. I'm going to introduce them in a park, outside of Gypsy's 'territory' and slowly show him different rooms of the house to not overwhelm him and I will be crating him at night.

All this to say... I know what I'm doing. The only thing I am unsure of, and the reason for this thread, is if getting him at 6 weeks will be alright because I don't know that his current environment is the best thing for him. I've already paid the deposit so I will be getting him, I found this breeder by a friend who highly recommended her so instead of doing my research I just blindly trusted that my friend would know what she was talking about. In that I made a mistake. But its too late now.
