By looking at the Siberian Huskies' appearance, you can tell that they are talented sled dogs. With their powerful muscles and their thick coat to keep them warm, Siberian Huskies do well in sledding competitions and the Iditarod. In this category, there are questions relating to this breed’s characteristics and features.
Many huskies have sensitive tummies. Mine does, she can't eat  processed foods at all so is completely raw fed. She eats raw  chicken, rabbits, mince, offal and just about anything else raw I  can get hold of. She also eats broccoli, carrots and apples raw  too. But some can eat just normal dog...

They are dogs, a dogs breed does not matter with whom you contain  it with unless there are to many dominant breeds  together(rottie,pitbull,greatdane,doberman,etc) a husky and a shah  tzu should be fine, just keep an eye on them at first for any signs  of aggression, you want their tails to be...
If obedience was top on your list of requirements for a dog, a  husky wasn't the best choice. They are well known for being  stubborn and ignoring commands when they have something better to  do.   That being said, you should still be able to get a certain level of  obedience. The dog needs...
Yes, Siberian huskies have tails. Unlike other breeds, the tail of  the Siberian husky is left long and not docked.
Huskies, like other domesticated dogs, are descended from the canine family, also referred to in latin as Canus domesticus.
ideal age is between 2 and 5 years .. that doesnt mean you can breed them after that age .. but i certainly wouldn't consider breeding before the age of two .. dogs are in adolescent stage between age 1 and 2 to me that's still way to young to breed them ..

Siberian Husky belongs to Order canninova
No, not all Siberian Huskies have blue eyes. Some have brown eyes, and some even have one blue eye and one brown one!
No, a Samoyed is NOT a husky. They are two distinct breeds, though both originate in Siberia. Samoyeds a very ancient breed, and are white, cream, or biscuit, with dark brown eyes, curly tails, and the distinctive "Samoyed smile". Huskies (UCONN notwithstanding) are usually black and white, grey and...
No, it is it's own special breed. It's smaller than the husky, and certainly...doesn't look like one.It is however a spitz type of dog and therefore does share charcteristics and looks (curly tail etc). These are the closest to a wolf and include Samoyeds Huskies Chows Malamutes Akitas Elkhounds...
Because they like to run and are good at it.
Siberian Huskies, being rugged and sturdy working dogs rarely wear  any clothes. If used as sled dogs, they may sometimes be fitted  with booties, to protect their paws a bit.
Primarily, eye color is determined by genetics. Although irises  come in different colors, they actually only contain brown pigment.  When an iris has a lot of brown pigment, the eyes appear brown or  dark. When the amount of brown pigment is small and is only on the  back surface of the iris,...

She may also...
Yes! Siberians are very loving animals and do great with kids. Mine goes everywhere with me and loves all the kids around. He is a great family dog! They love attention and unlike some breeds of dogs, they can love many people in a family.

Pom-pons may come in many colors, sizes and varieties and are made from a wide array of materials, including fabric, wool, cotton, paper, plastic, or occasionally feathers. ...who made pom poms? i actually don't know......
5/16 because all the huskies together are 16 so it would be something over 16. ASnd there are 5 gray huskies.
Well all dogs bite as its there natural instinct as they were naturally wild but it all depends on how Each and every Husky Dog has been Brought up!Hope this helps!

Interesting fact;Huskies, before used fir sledding, were used to herd reindeer back in Siberia.
A first generation cross-breed has the potential to grow to the  size of its largest parent so a first generation husky x terrier  could grow to the size of a purebred husky.   If the cross-breed is not a first generation (i.e. bred from two  husky x terriers), the parents will be a good...
It really depends on how tall and old your Siberian Husky is. If she is under 1 or 2 yrs, then the fence should be about maybe 5 ft. If she is 3+ yrs, then it should probably be around 6 ft. :)
about like 4-5 weeks old after their eyes are opened.
  A Siberian Husky is a domesticated animal, reliant on humans for its survival, they are not found in the wild and are therefore incapable of migration.
My 8 y/o Alaskan Husky had the same problem. She was diagnosed with thyroid problems. Dr prescribed levothyroxin. It has been two months taking the med andher recovery has been great!
Huskies die around the age 12-15 but if the husky is mixed with another breed it's most likely to live longer.
Siberian huskies can become very aggressive and dangerous dogs if they do not have enough exercise each day and also they are the 4th most aggressive and dangerous breed after the German shepherd due to its attacks on other dogs,strangers,kids etc.
As with any bone given to your dog you should always supervise them. If the bone starts to splinter you should take it away from them to prevent choking hazards.
No! I don't know were you would have herd that.
According to the official Kennel Club Breed Standard, Siberian Huskies should grow to between 20 and 23.5 inches at the shoulder.
About the only thing in North America that would prey on a Husky  would be a bear or a pack of wolves. Neither is typical but it has  happened. Generally nothing will prey on a full size dog,  particularly not one that is in the company of, or under the  protection of humans. And Huskies, being...
yes they are from my point of view
yes because they are adapted to warm weather
they stalk it then when close enough it pounces on it then kills it with a quick bite to the neck
Huskies are domestic dogs, not wild animals.
it depends were people have taken them but usually in the colder weather.
Just about every breed of dog has "rescue" groups. These are groups people devoted to a particular breed who volunteer their time and homes, and take in dogs that are either homeless or have been surrendered by their owners. Typically the rescue group provides medical care if it's needed, and works...
of course people love huskies beause there friendly and there a humans best bud ps plus cute
Alaskan huskies are not an actual breed but consist of a mix of Siberian huskies, Wolves and/or usually gun dogs like the labrador to improve sled pulling. If you are interested in Huskies check out the Alaskan Malamute.
yes mental they can fight
they are not related anymore to each other than a chihuahua and a labrador
No, they started out as sled dogs for the eskimos and eventually became pets for regular people, they have always been domestic dogs.
Of course there are!!! I have a pet dog named Alaska, she is a husky cross wolf. Obviously, there are wolves here is Canada too. If you are wondering if there is WILD huskies, then I don't think so. Hope I helped!
Male Siberian Huskies are usually between 53 and 60 centimeters.  Female Siberian Huskies are usually between 51 and 56 centimeters.
  I would think that huskys look after their young like any other dog if you are still unsure you should ask your vet for advice or contact your local dog breeders club.
they walk, pounce, swim, stalk, run, jump
Siberian huskies cost about $800-$2000 for healthy pups and from a shelter a pup would cost about $550.
what you do is teach you older husky leave it. then everyday go up to your younger husky with the older one and tell the older one "leave it". when he does it reward him and do this till he doesn't bother the younger husky anymore.
You can usually feed them raw chicken thighs or just drumsticks.They do not like to eat dry dog food.If they do they usually have diarrhea.
no. some live in warmer places such as Toronto etc.
If you take good care of it can live up to 12 or more years
Huskies drink a lot of water.
I have been having the same question. I rescued my husky at 6 weeks old from an unhealthy and threatening environment, with no papers, and no information on her parents. I have been reading information on the American Kennel Club website and it seems without parents information it is almost...
Siberian huskies in their spare time, tend to hunt for wild ligers in Mount Teptepee. They also tend to play fight and to hunt wild rabbits, but with the wild rabbits the females eat the meat while the males eat the fur.Its also known that if a female husky is in season, she will try and bite the...

there are two main types of huskies, the Malamute (pronounced mal-a-moo) and the Siberian husky. The Malamute is much larger, males can weigh anywhere from 50- 100 kgs. Siberians are much smaller, still tall but weigh far less, a male can weigh about 25kgs. Siberians were bred by using malamutes and...
Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes are two different breeds. They can be many different sizes depending on the mushers' breeding (assuming they're working dogs). Siberian males are usually between 45-60 and females between 35-50 pounds. Malamute males are usually between 75-90 pounds and the...
they carry their young for 65 days
around 10 hours a day
i have three Siberian huskies at home and they all love to fetch all though it takes some time for them to learn to bring the ball back they will fetch it forever
Siberian huskies are a breed of domesticated dog. Therefor, it wouldn't be hunters that killed them for fur, if they were killed for fur (which they aren't). Siberian huskies are generally used as sled dogs.
You can use any kind of dog brush on a Siberian Husky. However I would recommend the FURminator, I have a 2 year old Husky and it works very well. You can buy one at Pet Smart, PetCo or find one at furminator.com.
They aren't aggressive unless you make them like that or they've had some kind of trauma. I personaly think theyre asome!
Yes, just like any other mammal, all Huskies must sleep for several hours a day.
Your best bet is to contact your vet, who can tell you if your dog  is pregnant by doing an ultrasound. The vet will perform the  ultrasound for around $40 at 4 weeks gestation. While the  ultrasound will not be an accurate indication of the number of pups  to expect, it will definitely tell you...
It kills whoever fed it that. Try letting a squirrel eat the toothpaste, they make weird noises and it's really funny!
In day;s gone by they were in danger from polar bears and some of the larger seals. Now I think that man can be their most dangerous enemy by over breeding genetically inferior dogs and passing on traits like glaucoma.
how it reacts around other dogs or around people
they would look adorable
Well, it depends on a lot. I don't think they are considered hypoallergenic. And if you're asking because you have allergies then I SOOO know how you feel. My bro has allergies and I used to and we want a an Alaskan Klee Kai too but that's not gonna happen. :( I used to have allergies a couple of...
Yes they do because they are the breed of non elarging but if not thay will grow about "5" more
Like all canines, Siberian Huskies are naturally hunters, but as they are a domesticated breed of Dog, they are not officially predators.
There's usually enough for pulling a sled or more. That is not counting the eskimos they live with because huskies are domestic dogs.
Siberian huskies have no natural enemies, but some hunters kill huskies for their fur. Does this answer your question?
