Before Owning A Husky...

Thank you for viewing our site.  You've taken the first step to becoming a Husky owner.  Before becoming a Husky owner, there are a few things you should know about Siberian Huskies!  Below is some useful information for you to know before you agree to adopt one of these beautiful creatures.  Siberian Huskies are strong, compact, working dogs. The Siberian Husky comes in all colors from black to pure white.

Color choices:  Black and White, which ranges from light (dilute) to dark (jet), Red and White, which ranges from light (peach or orange) to dark (chocolate or brown), Gray and White, which ranges from light (silver) to dark (wolf-gray), Sable and White (which is red-orange with black tips), Agouti and White (which is sometimes referred to as the coyote color and contains a dark gray coat), and White.

Different coat markings are all accepted, the most notable being a pie-bald.  These coat markings are similar to that of a pinto horse.  The face mask and underbody are usually white, and the remaining coat any color.  The eyes are almond shaped, moderately spaced and set a trifle obliquely.  It is a common misconception that all Siberians have blue eyes.  They can have eyes that are blue, brown, amber, or any combination thereof including eyes which are half blue and half brown, which is referred to as being parti-eyed.  Having one blue eye and one brown eye is referred to as being bi-eyed.

They have large "snow shoe" feet that have hair between the toes for gripping on ice and snow. Its ears are high and erect.  The Siberian Husky has a thick, wooly undercoat and a soft outer coat.  It is able to withstand temperatures as low as -58 degrees to -76 degrees F ( -50 degrees to -60 degrees C).
