Facts About Huskies: There’s More Than One Type

Did you know there’s more than one type of Husky breed? Many people are surprised by this fact, but there are several Husky breeds including:

Siberian Husky Heroes

Huskies are members of the Spitz dog family, but the Siberian Husky is its own breed. They are highly outgoing, intelligent, have free-spirits and are usually healthier than the other husky cousins. In addition, these dogs are famous for their heroism. In fact, Huskies made the headlines in 1925, when a sled team delivered medicine to Nome, Alaska that was dealing with an outbreak of diphtheria that winter.

You may be familiar with the name of the dog that led the team. His name was Balto; he and his team members traveled over 600 miles in only 5 and half days. Can you imagine? Today, you’ll find a bronze statue in honor of Balto and his sled team in Central Park, New York City. Huskies were also used during WWII by the US Army for transporting provisions, medicine and mail to soldiers. In addition, these brave dogs served with the Army’s Artic Search and Rescue Unit of the Air Transport Command, and in the Byrd Antarctic expeditions.

Huskies and Eye Color

Most Siberian Huskies have very bright blue eyes, though some dogs can have brown or even amber eyes. Husky blue eyes are a dominant trait, which is interesting because blue eyes are a recessive, rare trait in other dog breeds.

Some Huskies can even have one blue and one brown eye, or half-blue or half-brown eyes. And another interesting fact about their eyes is that the almond shape helps the dogs to squint and keep snow out of their eyes! Who would have known?

The Great Escape Artists

Siberian Huskies are also famous for their ability to escape from yards. They have been known to jump over or dig under fences, making it a challenge to keep one of these dogs safely in the yard! In fact, pet parents who have a Husky will need to have at least a 6 foot fence as a minimum. And it’s necessary to have a portion of the bottom of the fence installed underground to keep a Husky from digging out.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our Husky facts and that you’ve found a great name for your beautiful male or female dog!
