Huskies are increasing at Riverside County animal shelters, county officials say.

RIVERSIDE – Huskies are filling up animal shelters throughout Riverside County, a trend likely attributable to a television series that features the breed, officials said, asking residents who don't mind the dogs' trademark hyperactivity to consider adopting them.

According to the Department of Animal Services, huskies now rank as the fifth most impounded breed at county shelters, with 1,027 dogs sheltered in the 10-month period ending Oct. 31. During all of 2013, only 351 huskies were impounded, while in 2017, 943 came into the county's possession, agency spokesman John Welsh said.
