The Siberian Husky is a beautiful dog breed with a thick coat that comes in a multitude of colors and markings. Their blue or multi-colored eyes and striking facial masks only add to the appeal of this breed, which was originally developed by the Chukchi people of the Chukchi Peninsula in eastern Siberia. In their language, husky means "hoarse", characteristic of the dog's barking.
They were brought to Nome, Alaska, in 1908 for sled-dog racing.
In general, in competitions, the Siberian Husky, faster than other breeds, compete in a separate category.
