Siberian Huskies are thought to have come from Siberiawhen there was a land bridge between Alaska and Siberia.The Siberian Husky has some very unusual characteristics. Some of the characteristics are behavioral and some arephysical.
Overall the Siberian Husky is a beautiful, trustworthy and loyal companion to its master and family. Some of the Siberian Huskies unusual physical traits can befound in their eyes. The Siberian Husky can have blue eyes orbrown eyes or one of eye of each color (to have one of eachcolor is a physical flaw).
It also has a strong compact bodywhich help them trap and kill their pray; strong straight legs,which enable them to run with long hopping strides; a deepchest, which allows them to knock their pray off their feet; and acurved bushy tail, such as a fox. (Sled Dogs, 21-2). TheSiberian Husky has two layers of fur; an under-coat and anouter-coat. The under-coat is designed to protect them from therain and snow and keeps them warm in the winter, therefore,allowing them to be able to be sled dogs. The outer-coat is toprotect them from stinging bugs, ticks, thorny bushes and ice.
(Compton’s).Some of the unusual behavioral traits that Huskies are knownto have are their relationship with their masters is one that mustbe built over time. The Husky does not trust immediately, theirtrust must be earned. The Husky likes to explore new areas andare curious animals by nature. They wonder from their domainin order to conquer new territory.
The Huskies are strong-willedand stubborn dogs. They are very territorial but also remaingentle and friendly with their master and family. If their masterabuses them they will become very aggressive and are likely toturn and attack their owner. They are very good family dogs,they are especially good with children. (Animal Behavior82-5).This particular dog is used for dog sledding because it isstrong, can run long distances and their bodies can withstand thebitter cold weather. In addition, the Husky is used for huntingand as a watch dog.
Huskies have keen senses, they can huntwell and can run fast. (Compton’s)The Siberian Husky is a hunter by nature. They hunt fortheir meals, and eat a variety of different wild meets and weeds. Some of the most common foods of the Husky are snow rabbits,deer and raw meats, unless they are domesticated. Adomesticated Husky will eat processed dog food and/or tablescraps; which ever the master desires to feed them. Some accomplishments of the Siberian Husky are that in1909 the first all Siberian Husky dog sled team was formed torace in the All Alaskan Sweepstakes Race.
The Husky wasrecognized as an official breed by the American Kennel Club in1930. (The Complete Dog Book 113-7).I think the Siberian Husky is an excellent dog for a family to own. It willprovide a good companion as well as an effective watch dog because it isvery protective of its owner and family. From experience I have found outthat the Siberian Husky is a very loyal and intelligent dog. They listen andlearn well as long as the proper amount of time is devoted to the Husky’straining.
