Siberian Husky

 

Origin:

The Siberian Husky is native to Siberia. They were brought to Alaska in 1909 and used for centuries by the Chukchi people in Siberia to pull sleds, herd reindeer and perform watchdog functions.

History

The Siberian Husky is a medium-sized working dog, quick and light on their feet and graceful in action. Their moderately compact and well furred body, erect ears and brush tail suggest a Northern heritage. Their characteristic gait is smooth and seemingly effortless. Huskies perform their original function in harness most capably, carrying a light load at a moderate speed over great distances. Their body proportions and form reflect this basic balance of power, speed and endurance.
