Dogs give their human companions unconditional love and are always there with an encouraging wag of the tail when they are needed. The dog is indeed a very special animal.

The Siberian Husky is an ancient breed. Developed by the nomadic Chukchi tribe of northeastern Asia some 3,000 years ago, he was used to pull sleds and herd reindeer. 

Only brought to Alaska in the early 1900s, he has since become renowned for sled racing and search and rescue work. 

This is a strong dog, able to haul loads over long distances and rough terrain.  

The Siberian Husky is a member of the Spitz family. He is a medium-sized working dog and stands 23 1/2 inches tall at the shoulder. He has a thick double coat that is medium long and comes in all colours including white. 

The Siberian Husky has a sweet nature and is a breed suitable for anyone who does not mind a dog who is playful, challenging, and independent.  The owner of a Husky may need to exercise considerable patience when training. Boredom in this breed, like many others, can lead to destructive behaviour. This is an active, energetic worker who requires a lot of exercise to stay in shape.

This breed does have a roaming instinct and needs to be kept in a fenced-in area. Because of his thick coat, the Husky does better in cooler climates and can live happily outdoors. A friendly, gentle dog, the Siberian Husky is a dependable and playful pet. 

A born sled dog, he will happily pull a young child in a wagon or sled.

Did you know?


The real hero
of the 1925 Serum Run
 was really a Siberian Husky named Togo.

The 12 year old husky led his sled dog team through 260 miles of blowing Alaskan blizzard to deliver emergency diphtheria
serum to Nome. 
Balto, another husky, received most of the fame because he led the final 
55 miles.
