Size: Medium
Group: Working dog breed
Hypoallergenic: No

The Siberian Husky, also known as the ‘Husky’ is easily recognised by its thick furred double coat, triangular ears, acute markings and bushy tail. The Huskies ancestors originate from the Siberian Arctic where they were bred to pull heavy loads over long distances through extremely harsh weather conditions. They were imported to Alaska and later spread to the United States and Canada where they were sent as sled dogs however they rapidly became the perfect family pet.

A Siberian Husky’s coat is extremely thick and consists of two separate layers; a dense undercoat and a longer topcoat. They are found in a variety of colours and markings, the most common being black and white. The eyes of the Husky are usually pale blue, dark blue, brown or amber. Occasionally, one eye may be brown and the other eye blue.

The Husky is known to have similar characteristics to its ancestors- the wolf. They tend to howl rather than bark and can sometimes roam and make escape attempts. If the dog is trained properly from a young age they make the ideal family pet and are very affectionate. They need frequent exercise and the companionship of people and other dogs as they may become destructive indoors.
