The Siberian Husky (a.k.a., the fluffy workaholic)

The Siberian Husky is a medium sized dog.

They are generally light and fast, with free and graceful movements. They are a true
"work dog" and are sometimes referred to as workaholics because of their unyielding
work ethic.

Looking at a Siberian Husky, it is perhaps no surprise that this breed has a very
northerly origin. It's thick fur, its ears and tail all point to survival and work in cold,
wintry environments.

Siberian Huskies were breed to pull slates loaded with medium loads, which is why both male and female Huskies tend to have strong leg muscles.

One of the most striking features of a Siberian Husky is its eyes. They tend to have an almond shape and come in a variety of colors. For example, most Siberian Huskies have either brown, blue or motley colored eyes, with combinations of blue and brown being fairly common. And it's not that uncommon to come across a husky that has one blue and one brown eye.

Perhaps surprisingly, breeders generally don't consider that to be a disadvantage. Rather, some people think that having two different colored eyes is a sign of purity.

Siberian Huskies tend to have fur that ranges from black or white, and may have spots on their heads - drawing strips are sometimes a sign of intermixture with other breeds.

This breed's nose also varies in color - from black to gray, to white (sometimes with pink stripes too). In terms of character, Siberian Huskies are friendly, sophisticated, clever and witty and do not exhibit the typical characteristics associated with guardian dogs. Huskies are generally not hostile towards strangers or other dogs.

In summary, their combination of character, work ethic, friendliness and rather attractive appearance makes Siberian Huskies great companions while at home relaxing in front of the television or out in nature enjoying the nice weather.
