History:
The Siberian Husky is believed to have been developed by the Chukchi Indians, natives of the region now called Siberia, more than three thousand years ago. The Siberian Husky was first used as a sled dog to pull small loads. Because of its isolation, the breed was kept very pure until the twentieth century, when Alaskans began importing the dogs to use for sled racing. Although largely replaced in dog sledding by the more-competitive Alaskan husky, the Siberian husky continues to be used as a recreational sled dog and companion. It also served as a sled dog with the U.S. military during WW II.
