Husky are nice, big dogs with striking blue or brown eyes. Siberian husky dogs are very energetic and active as they were bred to work and born to run. If a husky is independent, it loves people.
Husky dogs are of a medium size (from 20 to 24 inches tall), their weight ranges from 35 to 65 pounds. Siberian huskies look like real wolves but with stunning, bright blue or brown eyes. Ears are prick. Bodies of huskies are massive and athletic with a thick coat (it consists of 2 layers: in spring they lose most of the undercoat). Colours of coat is mostly black and white, or silver and white.
As a rule, huskies are: independent, clever, vocal, stubborn, friendly to most people, impulsive, loving, neat.
Any husky dog must be groomed once a week, thus, you’ll remove all dirt and other unnecessary things. When huskies are shedding it’s better to brush them more often.
You can’t own husky IF:
- you have small children, cats or dogs – huskies can be aggressive to them;
- you live in an apartment or a small house without a yard – huskies adore running, playing, roaming, otherwise, they can run away or express their energy in a very bad way;
- you are looking for a watchdog – huskies are big, but not reliable in these cases of emergency;
- you are dreaming about a quiet dog – Siberian huskies don’t bark a lot, but they adore yelping and howling, like most wolves.
