Siberian huskies are direct descendants of the original sled dogs and were bred to haul cargo across frozen tundra. Bred by the Chukchi people of Northeast Asia, they were brought to Alaska in the early 1900s to compete in sled races. Since then, they’ve become American favorites, regularly ranking in the American Kennel Club’s top 20 most popular dog breeds.
Huskies like to feel part of the pack and love humans. They are known to be great with children, making them an excellent family dog.
Huskies have a distinctive double coat that keeps them warm in the snow. They shed their coat twice a year and need daily brushing during these periods. Huskies grow to 20 to 24 inches tall and weigh in at 35 to 60 pounds.
Huskies love everyone, so don’t rely on them as guard dogs. As working dogs, they have plenty of energy and need several hours of daily exercise. Bored huskies are prone to destructive behavior, so it’s important to train them early and keep them active. Interestingly, huskies rarely bark, but they are still vocal dogs with a distinctive howl.
Siberian huskies are perfect for active families, and rehomepuppies can help you find the perfect puppy to join your family on outdoor adventures.
