Siberian Husky Gifts

As the name suggests, this breed is thought to be a native of Siberia that possibly crossed the land bridge between there and Alaska. In their native land, the dog was bred for pulling sleds as well as herding reindeer, and had developed quite naturally into an extremely hardy dog, capable of great strength and endurance for their size. While it is said that Husky type dogs existed in Canada and countries to the north for some time, their popularity in the 20th century began with the importing of dogs from Russia to Alaska, circa 1909.

(continued) The famous diphtheria epidemic of 1925 brought the dog into the world’s spotlight as they carried medicine to isolated communities in the frozen north. In the years following that event, the dog became extremely popular as pets, to the detriment of the breed in some opinions. The boom in numbers settled back down in subsequent years and allowed breeding programs to become refocused on producing both working dogs and pets of stable temperament. The Siberian Husky stands 20-23 ˝ inches at the withers, and weighs 35-60 lbs. They are accepted in all colors and have a number of unique head markings not found on other breeds. The Huskie is one of those dogs that is sometimes smarter than their owners. Alert and intelligent, imminently trainable, they still balk at obeying if it’s not something they really find any reason to do. Early and consistent training as well as familiarizing yourself with the sometimes quirky character of the breed is a must. They are energetic, playful, loving and endearingly mischievous. A very loyal dog, they are generally friendly with everyone, including strangers. This is a dog that requires a certain amount of exercise and activity to occupy him or else he gets into trouble. Siberian Huskies are good with other family pets that they have been raised with. ©DogDecor.com
