The Siberian Husky was bred hundreds of years ago by the Chukchi, a tribe from eastern Siberian, in the Arctic. The husky was also used to herd reindeer. Generally a quiet dog, the husky doesn't bark, but howls and makes a woo-woo sound.
Fur: The Siberian Husky has a long, thick coat that lets it live in extremely cold weather, down to -75°F. The insulating coat is made of two layers, a short, dense, oily underlayer and a long, coarse guard coat. The husky grooms itself fastidiously; it is a very clean dog.
Eyes : In some huskies, one eye may be blue while the other is brown. This trait is called a "pinto eye," a "parti eye," or a "split eye."
Anatomy: The Siberian Husky is a medium-sized dog. It is just under 2 feet (60 cm) tall at the shoulders and weighs about 45 to 60 pounds (20-27 kg). The male is a bit larger than the female.
