Siberian Huskies



Siberian Huskies have a thicker coat of fur than almost any other breed of canine. It actually has two layers, a dense undercoat and a longer topcoat of short and straight hair. The fur protects the dogs from the Arctic temperatures and weather. Interestingly, the Husky doesn’t suffer in the summer, because the coat reflects heat. The undercoat usually sheds off and requires weekly grooming. The Husky can withstand temperatures of -58 to -76 degrees Fahrenheit.

Siberian Huskies come in a variety of colors and patterns, usually with white paws and legs, facial markings, and tail tip. The most common coats are black and white, then less common copper-red and white, grey and white, pure white, and the rare "Agouti" coat, though many individuals have blondish or piebald spotting. Striking masks, spectacles, and other facial markings occur in wide variety. Overall they are exquisite canines with amazing capabilities.
