The Siberian Husky is a medium-size, dense-coat working dog breed that originated in eastern Siberia and rapidly acquired the status of a family pet and a show-dog. It’s an active, energetic and resilient breed whose ancestors came from the extremely cold and harsh environment of the Siberian Arctic.
As a working breed, Siberian Huskies are a high-energy canine requiring lots of exercise. They have served as companions and sled dogs, but are unsuitable as guard dogs. Over time, this combination of factors has lent the Siberian Husky a strong sense of gentleness and devotion.
