As a companion , Siberian Huskies are great, I own male and female, female is very protective. Highly intelligent dogs. But if you do not like hair, then it is not for you.
If you want loyalty and protection I would not suggest a Siberian Husky.
I also have two, male and female. While they are wonderful companions and highly intelligent, they are not easily trained and tend to be extremely independent. They are runners, by nature (obviously), and are excellent at tracking, hunting, etc. They refuse to fetch and can be really mischevious!

Lots of big dogs seem to be in the running here. Just remember, the bigger the dog the bigger the food bowl. If you want a dog to be with you in a survival situation, you don't need an eating machine. My recommendation is a Aussie blue heeler. They are tough, medium sized, protective and not prone to problems that the big dogs get. Some are great, some are too aggressive. You need to screen the dog well. They were originally cattle herding dogs, so they are fearless, so much a "go fot the throat" dog, but they sure can keep an enemy off guard long enough for you to take him out.
