Where you have an older Siberian Husky or another breed of dog and introduce a younger Siberian into the household, there are often issues, particularly when your older dog starts to fail in his health. The younger dog senses that the older dog can no longer be alpha dog and run with the pack, and will seek to take over to remove the older dog from the alpha position. This is instinct behaviour and goes back to the Siberian's heritage. Fighting between the dogs may ensue. At this point the only option is to separate them and let your old dog live out the rest of its days peacefully, otherwise you will have vet bills and you are putting your old dog's life at risk unnecessarily.
