Siberian Husky: Health Issues & Personality
Siberian Husky:

The Siberian Husky originated in the cold and vast wastes of Siberia.  It is believed that Huskies hauled the sleds and herded the reindeer of nomadic Inuit for at least 3,000 years.  Isolated by the harsh northern environment, the Husky remained astonishingly pure, and the selective breeding practiced by its masters resulted in an exceptionally fast, strong, and tireless dog.

Nineteenth century fur traders exploring Siberia chanced upon the breed and brought it to North America in the early 1900's. The Husky was recognized as a breed in the 1930's, and has become very popular in North America.

Gentle and affectionate, the Husky has the most docile nature of all sled dogs.  But it still exhibits some of the traits of its wolf ancestors, and the Husky's owner must be prepared to handle it with love and patience so as not to arouse its anger.  A very clean dog, the Husky is virtually odorless.  Its coat does not need special care, though it should be groomed with a steel comb during shedding season.
