Appearance

Huskies have strong legs and a sturdy build, but lean enough to be quick. They have
great endurance, with their medium sized compact bodies. They have medium length,
straight and thick fur and they can have many different colors in the eyes. They can be
blue, brown, one of each or even parti-colored. The nose color depends on the coat
color, which can be any color, most often with markings on the head with the underbelly
and face a lighter color than the rest.

Temperament

Huskies are dependable, energetic, and friendly. They make lively, outgoing pets that
generally like being around people. Although they are stubborn, independent and not
very obedient, they enjoy being with the family the most. They are active, intelligent and
not aggressive. They get along well with children and other dogs, however they should
not be trusted with smaller animals.

History

The Siberian Husky was developed by the Chukchi Indian tribe of what is now Siberia,
which is on the coasts of the Arctic and Pacific Oceans on the peninsula that reaches
out from Siberia towards Alaska. The Chukchi people lived far inland, and needed dogs
to pull sleds, hunted animals and themselves across the miles of snow.
