KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Calls for a ban on keeping Siberian Huskies as pets have grown louder following a puppy's refusal to come out of the fridge.

  • The dog breed is native to Siberia, where temperatures drop as low as -60 degrees Celsius, making it unsuitable for the Indian climate.
A video of a Siberian Husky puppy refusing to come out of the refrigerator has intensified calls for a ban on the cold-weather dog breed in India. The young canine, who lives with a family in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, sought refuge from the city’s hot and humid conditions in the fridge.
The 17-second clip captures repeated attempts by the Husky’s owner to drag it out of an empty shelf, which became its last resort from the unforgiving climate of peninsular India.
“Saw this reel and I think this person should be in jail for having a husky in Trivandrum,” read an X post. “Bloody idiots torturing this poor animal, see it naturally likes to live in cold temperatures like in a fridge. Dog lovers in India are psychos.”
The video had originally been shared by an Instagram user named Athira Sandeep, who was forced to turn off comments and eventually delete her post, following heavy criticism.
“Please don’t get husky’s. They are meant to live in the snow,” a viewer appealed.
“It’s not a flex to own one, it’s actually quite inhumane and reflects your lack of intelligence.”
Siberian Huskies, as the name suggests, are native to Siberia, which is known for harsh winters. These dogs are bred to withstand temperatures as low as -60° C. It's only natural for a canine with a thick double coat to prefer places that mimic the subarctic climate over being subjected to the tropical environment of the Malabar coast.
For the unnamed pup in question, simply getting into the fridge wasn't enough. The dog can be seen trying to dig with its paws, likely out of an instinct to bury itself under the snow.
Despite its unsuitability, the Siberian Husky isn't on the list of dog breeds banned in the country. Possession or adoption of some canines that are considered "ferocious" has been outlawed, though, over the years.
