The Siberian Husky originated in Eastern Siberia as a dense coated, medium sized working dog breed belonging to the Spitz genetic family. The Siberian Husky is recognizable by its sickle tail, thickly furred double coat, erect triangular ears and distinctive markings.

An energetic, active and resilient dog breed whose ancestors came from brutally harsh and cold environments among the Siberian Arctic, the Siberian Husky was imported to Alaska throughout the Nome Gold Rush and then quickly spread through Canada and the United States as a sled dog. The Siberian Husky has been a show dog and a family pet and is not much considered a sled dog as it has been replaced by crossbreeds.

The dog is a working breed, and Siberian Huskies enjoy the ability to explore and run with great energy. This fact, combined with their striking wolf like appearance, has made the Husky a very popular show and family dog. Siberian Huskies can be very curious, affectionate and often welcome people, even strangers. This fact makes the Siberian Husky a very poor guard dog. A well rained and properly socialized Siberian Husky is very gentle and well with children.
