Traits of a Siberian Husky:
Siberian husky is not much of a homey dog. A Siberian Husky is not a right choice if you are looking for a dog that can permanently decorate your couch and stand to your every slouchy order. As said earlier, they are working class of dogs and are very vigorous. Wolves can never be tamed, and this wolf-like dog is pretty hard to tame as well, not impossible though. Only dog-friendly people can have good control over the Siberian class. First-time owners will have a tough time to keep up to their energy levels. They are highly adaptable yet they love to have their freedom.
The Siberian class dogs are usually nomads. They don’t stick to one place and prefer to live a life without cages. So if you are taming a Siberian be sure to have enough safety measures to get your pet back home, after all, they might cross your fence anytime. This Siberian canine knows its workplace quite well. Which means you can train a Siberian and make it follow strict rules at the place of work, but when they get back home all your training withers away and they get back naughty. However, most owners say that they can quickly adapt the ethics once they get back to work again.
The Siberian Husky is a very friendly dog. It can quickly befriend men and other dogs alike but not a cat, they have a weird feeling for the feline breeds. They are not good watch dogs. Though these dogs are widely loved and appreciated for what they do, guarding a place obediently is not their cup of tea. Again their enthusiastic and affable nature will make them play around even a complete stranger instead of pouncing and hunting him down. A strange thing about a Siberian is its love for running wild and digging. You can’t do away with it, instead, you have to learn to live with it.
Rose to fame:
The Siberian breed became popular only after the 1925 incident when a crew employed these dogs to carry a life-saving serum and the dogs sprinted across the frozen Alaskan wilderness in no time to Nome, a remote place in Alaska. Balto, named after the Sami explorer Samuel Balto, is the Siberian husky that led its team in the unforgettable run to Nome and is honored with a statue at the Central Park, New York. Since then these dogs were never forgotten.
