Good With Dogs:⬛⬛⬛⬜⬜⬜⬜
The Siberian Husky is a very energetic and athletic breed of dog. They need an average of 2 hours of running exercise a day, they are also a pack-breed of dog. They were bred to live among many other Husky's and so enjoy being with the family and with other dogs. It is much better and easier on their socialization to have more than one dog in the home if a Siberian Husky is going to be added. Since your family works an average amount of time, unless you are ready to put in an hour in the morning and an hour at night every day, no matter the weather; I would not suggest a Husky. Your little sister will be perfectly fine, but the Siberian Husky is a mouthy breed of dog, so as a puppy he/she may be mouthy with anyone in the family.
In one word, yes. In several, the Siberian Husky breed is a high-shedding breed. They need to be brushed at least 2 - 3 times a week, or done by a professional groomer once a month. But you will still find little fluff balls of hair floating along the floor and behind the doors. One of the many charms of the Siberian Husky breed.
No, the Siberian Husky was bred for very cold weather. They do not have the fur, nor the genetics to deal with very hot weather such as in Florida, Texas, California, ect. Purchasing a breed like the Siberian Husky and having it live in hot weather will not only be very difficult for the dog, but for the owner too. The owner will have to spend more money on A.C to keep the home at a much cooler temperature so it is comfortable for the dog. This breed are able to stand below zero temperatures, not warm temperatures. Also, this breed needs a large amount of exercise or they will become destructive, and vocal. They need an average of 2 hours of running exercise a day, and since they can not tolerate heat; they will need to be ran early in the morning (around 4am, when it's still relatively cool out) and again very late at night (around 10pm, when it has cooled down again). I would suggest a different breed of dog if you live in Florida, a breed that is able to deal with the hot weather and not be at risk for heat stroke.
Much of California coast area has weather from cool in summer and cold in the winter. The dogs can enjoy this weather with their think double coats. A Chicago Summer is to hot and humid. There are many weather conditions to consider in the lower 48.
Our Huskies are okay in the warmer weather. They have a shallow pool of cool water they like to play in.
Yes, it is perfectly fine for your Siberian Huskey to have bi-colored eyes. Siberian Huskies are well known for different colored eyes. Anything from dark brown, chocolate, almond, gold, grey, nearly white (ice blue), light blue, to deep blue.
