Siberian Husky General Appearance:

Siberian Huskies are medium-sized dogs that are known for their striking, wolflike appearance. Their double-coated fur tends to be black and white, but it can also be red and white, gray and white, and pure white, with a variety of facial markings. Their fur acts as insulation against both cold and heat, but since it’s double-coated, plan on making brushing and grooming a regular part of your routine as a dog owner.

A Siberian Husky’s eyes can be brown, blue, or a combination of these colors. Their ears are triangular and erect. They have a heavily furred tail that is especially expressive; a Husky dog may hold their tail low when they are relaxed, and curved upward when they’re excited.

Husky dogs tend to stand between 20 and 24 inches tall, and they weigh between 35 to 50 pounds. This breed is known for elegance and grace, and Siberian Huskies walk quickly and lightly on their feet. They were bred to balance power, speed, and endurance, and their appearance clearly reflects their lineage as resilient sled dogs from the Siberian Arctic.

Siberian Husky Temperament:

A Husky dog’s personality is almost as distinct as its appearance! These dogs are friendly and outgoing, but they are also notably mischievous. Siberian Huskies are escape artists and can dig under, chew through, or jump over fences; if you want to bring Siberian Husky puppies into your home, plan on having a fence at least six to eight feet high around your property!

Siberian Huskies are active dogs that can quickly turn destructive if they don’t have a place to channel all their extra energy. Plan on taking your Husky dog on long walks and runs, and keep their minds engaged with consistent training.

The Siberian Husky is a pack dog that relies on the companionship of other people and dogs. They also have a high prey drive, and may prey on wild cats, birds, and squirrels. Your Siberian Husky puppy will need plenty of socialization and obedience training, but it’s worth the time: well-trained Husky dogs are loyal companions.

Siberian Husky Fun Fact:

Balto is one of the most famous Siberian Huskies in American history. In 1925, Balto was part of the Leonhard Seppala’s sled dog team that delivered medication to Nome, a small town in Alaska. This run is commemorated in Alaska’s annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. However, Balto's fame infuriated Seppala, as the lead dog in the Nome sled race was named Togo!
