Do You Know “Husky”?

The Husky is a primitive ancient breed that lives in northeastern Siberia and southern Greenland.

Husky is a general name for a sled-type of dog used in northern regions, differentiated from other sled-dog types by their fast pulling style. The name “Husky” derives from its unique croaking sound.

Huskies are an ever-changing cross-breed of the fastest dogs. Huskies have mercurial temperament, some of them are extremely timid, while some are extreme violent.

 

After entered the mainland or owners’ families, they have no such extreme personalities. They are docile and are kept as pets all over the world now. Husky, Golden Retriever and Labrador are tied for the three non-attacking dogs.

The Alaskan Malamute, by contrast, is “the largest and oldest of the Arctic sled dogs,” and was used for heavier loads.

Huskies are used in sled dog racing. In recent years, companies have been marketing tourist treks with dog sledges for adventure travelers in snow regions as well. 

Huskies are energetic and athletic. They usually have a thick double coat that can be gray, black, copper red, or white. 

Their eyes are typically pale blue, although they may also be brown, green, blue, yellow, or heterochromic. Huskies are more prone to some degree of uveitis than most other breeds.
