Siberian husky can in many ways be considered lovable and beautiful
Siberian husky can in many ways be considered lovable and beautiful, but one should hardly forget the more demanding characteristics of Siberian husky.
Siberian huskies are a very social dog, they are herd animals that have a strong need to be constantly accompanied by either other dogs or humans.
They are very friendly even to strangers and therefore do not have any guard instincts.
The breed is known for its innate drive to run and they also have a great aptitude for howling, digging pits and cages.
The reason they want to dig pits is that they are looking for a cooler or warmer surface.
In the summer it is to get cool and in the winter to get insulation and get warm.
One of the most successful sled dog handlers was the Norwegian-American Leonhard Seppala (1877-1967). In 1925, diphtheria broke out in the city of Nome. To transport serum the 100 km long road between Nenada and Nome was hired i.a. Seppala and his dog team with siberian huskies. Balto was the guide dog in one of the other teams and he became famous and described as having led the team that carried the serum the last distance. Balto stands statue in Central Park in New York.
The Siberian Husky was recognized as a separate breed in 1930 by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and the American Breed Club was formed in 1938.
