Huskies are Originated In Siberia
Siberian Huskies, as their name suggests, were born in Siberia. The Chukchi people were semi-nomadic Siberian tribe that wanted to expand their hunting areas but needed help moving their sleds across long distances. They did this about 3,000 years ago. They set out to create the perfect sled dog. It required endurance, thick winter coats to keep them warm in cold temperatures, and the ability of living on very little food.
What did the result look like? The Chukchi dog is a distant relative of today’s modern huskies.

Huskies have built-in winter wear
Siberian Huskies were born in subzero temperatures and are ready to face severe winter weather. Their double coat is composed of a thick, thin undercoat that keeps them warm and a long, waterproof outer coat. The almond-shaped eyes provide protection against snow, as well as strong sunlight that reflects off of the snow.
Plus, they have a double coat. For extra warmth, their bushy tails can be wrapped around the faces of their sleeping companions.
Huskies are a lot of energy and make great jogging buddies
You should be ready to do a lot of exercise, especially if you are adding a high-energy Siberian Huskie to your family. According to the American Kennel Club, Siberian Huskies are bred to run – they need regular exercise.1
You and your doggo can decide how you exercise regularly. Huskies were originally bred to run so they are great joggers. Be sure to gradually increase your husky’s running mileage. It shouldn’t run 5k right out of the gate. Only exercise outside on cool, low humidity days. Because of their thick coats, Huskies are more susceptible to heatstroke. You can exercise your husky in warm weather or by swimming in the sprinkler.
Many Huskies have blue eyes
Blue eyes are rare in most breeds of dog, unless the doggy has the Merle gene which prevents pigment from fully developing in their eyes. However, many huskies are born brightly blue. Heterochromia, which refers to eyes with two colours, is also quite common in huskies. It can cause blue, gold or brown eyes, as well as orangery-coloured eyes.
Huskies are super-friendly
Siberian Huskies can be tough and intimidating, but they are friendly, sometimes even to the point of being rude! People looking for a Siberian husky guard dog are going to be disappointed. Huskies are too friendly and trusting of strangers. This charming personality trait has a positive side. They make wonderful furry family members.
A husky is a great choice for families who live in cooler climates, have large backyards (huskies need to get their energy out), and have children.
Huskies have a remarkable metabolism
This is a fact that science cannot explain about huskies: Huskies can run for hours without food and without consuming their glycogen (carbohydrates or fats). How can they burn so many calories and not use their reserves? They control their metabolism to maximize performance.
Remember: If humans tried to run for hours on end without having any energy source, they would quickly tire and have to stop.
Huskies were originally bred to run long distances and have very little food. It makes sense then that their bodies are able to function with very little fatigue. It’s still amazing, right?
Huskies can have colourful coats
Siberian Huskies are often thought of as thick Gray and white or black and white. However, the coat colours can be very different. The American Kennel Club states that huskies can have one of six colours: black, Gray, red or sable. But there are many other options.
Huskies are very talkative
