Country of Origin:
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.
The Siberian husky is a medium-size
dog with a compact, muscular body. It is slightly longer than it is tall. It has
medium-size, erect ears and almond-shaped eyes that can be brown, blue, one of
each, or parti-colored.
Depending on the color of the dog, the nose is black, liver, flesh-colored, or
streaked with pink. It is double coated with a medium-length, straight outer
coat and a dense undercoat. The tail is well furred. It can be any color,
ranging from black to white, with a variety of black or white markings.
