Did you know ?


The breed’s ancestors were originally reared by the Chukchi people in the far east of Siberia. Alerted by reports of this outstanding sled dog, Americans in Alaska first imported them to the U.S.A. in 1909.

Siberian Huskies are alert, sociable animals of gentle temperament. They do not share the natural possessive qualities of a guard dog, display extreme distrust of strangers or assume an aggressive attitude among other dogs. Mature dogs are somewhat reserved and dignified. Their intelligence, docility and desire to please make them pleasant companions and willing workers.


Siberian Husky In a few words :

  • Head

    Medium-sized skull in proportion to the body. Slightly rounded at the top.


  • Body

    Straight and solid, level topline from withers to croup.


  • Coat

    Any, from black to pure white.


  • Ears

    Medium-sized, triangular, set close together on top of the head.


  • Tail

    Well furnished, fox brush, set just below the topline.


  • Hair

    Medium-length double coat, well furnished but never long enough to obscure the clean lines of the dog.



Siberian Huskies are medium-sized dogs with moderately developed bone structure and harmonious proportions that move very freely. Their distinctive almond-shaped eyes are slightly oblique. Brown and blue are acceptable, although eyes of two different colors or parti-colored eyes are also possible.
