Siberian Husky is one of the oldest dog breeds and its origins like in north-eastern Siberia. This breed belongs to the Spitz family and it is a direct descendant of the original “sled dog”, along with the Alaskan Malamute and Samoyed. Husky’s are medium to large sized working dogs with a dense coat with typical triangular erect ears and a sickle tail. Its thick fur allows these dogs to survive in extreme conditions while pulling heavy loads of various goods through long distances in the harsh arctic environment. Siberian Husky was introduced into the US and Canada as a result of the Nome Gold Rush in Alaska, where they were used as sled dogs. These days, the Husky is still a popular sled dog breed, but they are also used as family pets and show dogs.
