Siberian Husky Puppies
Description: The Siberian Husky has a sweet nature and is a breed that is suited for the whole family, but does not make a good guard dog. They are very friendly, and generally get along well with children and other dogs. Gentle in character with a determined look, they are very people oriented dogs. The Siberian Husky was developed constantly in the presence of children, allowing them to be very used to family. Males have a tendency to roam and need to be kept in a fenced in area. If they get out it may be impossible to catch them on foot, as Huskies have been known to be excellent escape artists. Siberian Huskies are long lived, active, and outgoing with friends and family. They tend to be independent, not being very obedient, but are not a one-person dog. They enjoy all types of people. A member of the Spitz family, the Siberian Husky is strong and has the ability to haul heavy loads over long distances and rough terrain. Siberian Huskies will happily pull a young child in a wagon or sled. They have strong legs and a sturdy build, but lean enough to be quick. They have great endurance, with their medium sized compact bodies. They have medium length, straight and thick fur and they can have many different colors in the eyes. They can be blue, brown, one of each or even parti-colored. The nose color depends on the coat color, which can be any color, most often with markings on the head with the underbelly and face a lighter color than the rest. Siberian Huskies are not only magnificent looking, but magnificent in personality as well.
