This dog loves to run and enjoys cold weather. It is social and gets along with other dogs. Some howl, dig, and chew.
This ancient Russian dog originated in Siberia. It was used as a sled puller and for sled racing. They are adventurous, playful, alert, clever, mischievous, cuddly, warm, and fun loving dogs. They are great with other household pets but may be wary of strangers and strange dogs. These Huskies are very social dogs and need human or canine companionship. Since they are made to pull sleds and race, these active dogs require daily exercise by either a long jog or a safe off leash run. They like to live indoors but love being outside in cool or cold weather. They are ideal companions for singles, families with older children, cold weather dwellers, and active individuals. Their coats require brushing one to two times per week and daily during shedding season.
