Siberian Husky...

The Siberian Husky (Russian: Сибирский хаски, Sibirskiy Haski) is a medium-size, dense-coat working dog breed that originated in eastern Siberia. The breed belongs to the Spitz genetic family. It is recognizable by its thickly-furred double coat, sickle tail, erect triangular ears and distinctive markings. An active, energetic and resilient breed whose ancestors came from the extremely cold and harsh environment of the Siberian Arctic and were bred by the Chukchi people of Northeastern Asia. Siberian Huskies share many outward similarities with the Alaskan Malamute as well as many other Spitz breeds such as the Samoyed, which has a comparable history to the Huskies. As a working breed, Siberian Huskies are a high-energy canine requiring lots of exercise. They have served as companions and sled dogs, but are unsuitable as guard dogs.

The Siberian Husky's coat comprises of two layers, a dense undercoat and a longer topcoat of short, straight guard hairs. It protects the dogs effectively against harsh arctic winters, but the thick coat can make it very difficult to stay cool in the summer. Though they tend to be very clean dogs, they can benefit from regular brushing. In addition, they are seasonally heavy shedders and require a more thorough combing with a metal comb at those times. Baths should be given only when needed, and the nails should be kept trimmed.
