The Siberian Husky breed originated from Russia and was first registered in Canada in the year of 1892. Today there are more than 100,000 Siberian huskies living all over the world. They have been used as guard dogs since their creation and they were originally bred for hunting purposes. There are many different types of siberianshires but most of them share one characteristic: they’re very loyal companions who will always follow their master no matter what.
Siberian husky puppies are born with a white coat which gradually turns to black. Their eyes are blue and they have small pointed ears. Their noses are long and straight.
They also have a short muzzle, which makes it easier for them to breathe when running or climbing trees.
They’re also known as the “fox hounds” because of their keen sense of smell and hearing, as well as their ability to track down prey even at great distances.
There are several breeds of siberian husky. Some of these include:
• Siberian Husky – A medium sized dog with a dark brown coat and white markings around its eyes, nose and mouth. Its ears are slightly longer than those of other huskies. It’s not uncommon for them to weigh between 40-50 pounds (18-25 kg).
They usually live up to 15 years in good health.
Siberian husky are believed to be closely related to the Alaskan malamute. Both dogs are believed to have common ancestors despite having different coat types and different functions. The siberian husky is believed to be a cross between the chukchi dog of northeast Asia (a canid that resembles the Labrador retriever) and themalamute.
Siberian husky are one of the oldest arctic dog breeds and they were an important part of the indigenous people’s culture. They helped in hunting, transportation, herding reindeer and pulling heavy loads for thousands of years. It was only in the 20th century that they started to become popular as show dogs.
