Ask Louise | Owning a Husky | Expat Echo Dubai

ask-louiseQuestionI’d like to learn what is the exact situation for owning a Siberian husky in Dubai.  As  I heard, the dog breed list was updated in 2009 but I couldn’t reach the latest list. Does Husky breed need to live only in villas?

AnswerHuskies are on the restricted list of dogs in Dubai, which means they must be kept on a lead and muzzled at all times when outside of your home. Most apartments will not allow dogs, especially big dogs so they need to be in villas, preferably with gardens for the winter months.
Here is a list from Move One Pet Relocation on which dogs may not be brought into DubaiThe following breeds of dogs are prohibited from importation to the UAE :
The Dubai municipality had issued a circular that prohibits sixteen breeds of dogs in residential and public areas.

All Kinds of Pit Bull

Argentinian Fighting Dog (Dogo Argentino; Argentinian Mastiff).
Brazilian Fighting Dog (Fila Brasileino; Brazilian Mastiff).
Cross Breeds with any extract of the above listed breeds.
