Originally bred as a sled dog in northeast Asia, the Siberian Husky is known for his endurance and willingness to work. Eager, outgoing and friendly, the breed makes an agreeable family companion. Though he is a gentle dog, the Siberian Husky has a strong predatory instinct and should be supervised around small animals. This working breed needs daily exercise, and his thick coat requires weekly brushing.

Did you know?

In 1925, the Alaskan city of Nome was stricken by a diphtheria epidemic, and dog teams of Siberians led heroic "serum runs" from Anchorage to Nome to deliver antitoxins. The story of “Balto,” the lead dog of one of these teams, was made into a Disney movie.
