I am Siberian Husky, a dog breed that originated in Siberia, as my name suggests. I am popular among popular because of my wolf-like demeanor, multi-colored eyes, impressive facial masks, and beautiful thick coat.
What's more, I am a renowned escape artist famous for performing Houdini on my people. In other words, I am a master at jumping fences, slip collars, and break tie-out chains, to escape. So, be prepared to set up a high-fenced yard that goes several inches below ground to prevent me from escaping.
Siberian huskies are the typical northern dog. They are brilliant, but they are also stubborn and rebellious. They thrive in human company, but they require strong, compassionate training from the time they are puppies. These are dogs raised to run, and their love of running may overshadow their affection for their guardians at times. They are friendly with people, including children.
The almond-shaped eyes of the sleek, medium-sized Siberian Husky can be brown or blue and sometimes both. They communicate a keen but pleasant and even mischievous look. Siberians are recognized for their powerful but seemingly easy pace. They are quick and nimble-footed.
Usually, Siberian huskies get along well with other dogs, especially those with whom they were raised. However, they have a strong prey drive and will likely pursue cats and animals. Plus, Siberian huskies, especially in hot weather, can be diggers because they want to excavate cool spots to rest in. They don't typically bark, but they do howl.
The average male is between 21 and 23.5 inches tall, whereas the average female is between 20 and 22 inches tall. The male weighs 45 to 60 pounds, while the female weighs 35 to 50 pounds.
Huskies are intelligent and energetic dogs who can be loud. Many Huskies have an insatiable urge to learn new things and can be escape artists. As a result, they demand a great deal of training and exercise in order to stay happy and healthy.
They need regular exercise such as running, as long as it's not too warm outside. On hot days, they need some creative indoor exercise to stay active and happy. A bored husky indoors or outdoors can become very destructive.
