Siberian Husky is a medium-size, dense-coat working dog breed that originated in north-eastern Siberia. Siberian Husky, Samoyed, and Alaskan Malamute are all breeds directly descended from the original “sled dog.” Recent DNA analysis confirms that this is one of the oldest breeds of dog. The Siberian Husky has been described as a behavioral representative of the domestic dog’s forebear, the wolf, exhibiting a wide range of its ancestors’ behavior. Siberian Huskies are loving, gentle, playful, happy-go-lucky dogs who are fond of their families. Life Expectancy for Siberian Huskies is About 12-15 years. Common health issues include hips dysplasia and eye problems. Siberian Huskies used for racing can often develop gastric and bronchial problems. Siberian husky combines power, speed and endurance, enabling it to carry a light load at moderate speed over a great distance. The biggest caution about Siberian Huskies is their reputation for being escape artists. They will wander away from home whenever they get the chance. Sadly, far too many have become lost or injured as a result. Siberian Huskies rarely bark but they enjoy howling, and they will not alert bark if someone comes onto your property. This makes them an unsuitable watchdog. Siberians also have a vairiety of eye colors. Many are spellbinding with their beauty. Eye colors: Varied hues of coppery to brown chocolate brown, icy blue, or bi-color, which is one brown and one blue eye.
