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.
