The Siberian Husky

College student Cody Saltsman supports campaigns that benefit people and animals. Along with supporting animal welfare, Cody Saltsman enjoys playing with his family’s two dogs. He considers the Siberian Huskies his favorite breed because of their markings and eyes.

Medium-sized dogs, Siberian Huskies were originally bred in Asia by the Chukchi Tribe before earning international recognition during the early 20th century. Due to their upbringing in cold climates, they were successful in winning sled races and even completed a 650+-mile trek to bring medicine to people in Nome, Alaska, in only five days. During World War II, the US Army utilized them for a search and rescue team.

Known for their distinctive gray, black, and white coloring, Siberian Huskies have thicker coats than most dogs. Although they are a clean animal, they require brushing at least once a week, and more during shedding periods. Additionally, they have expressive almond-shaped eyes that are usually blue, brown, or heterochromic.

Siberian Huskies are also beloved because of their pleasant personalities. They are very comfortable around other dogs due to their heritage as pack animals. Regularly looking to make friends, these dogs also get along with children and other members of a family. However, they are energetic, and owners should provide them with ample room to run around.
