The Siberian husky is a breed of working dog native to northeastern Siberia.

There is evidence that the Siberians were imported from the Koryak and Kamchadal tribes of the Chuchki Peninsula, in the extreme north-east of Siberia, just opposite the Bering Strait.

They were brought to Alaska in 1904 and continuously for two decades due to the gold rush.

Since 1970, the Siberian husky gained relevance as a show dog and began to be seen as a companion animal, away from its natural functions, which were those of a working dog.

It is a medium-sized dog. Accustomed to living in the snow, it has a much denser and thicker coat than other dog breeds, but it is capable of drastically modifying its coat depending on where it lives: it can change between long or shorter hair.

If they are properly trained and socialized from a young age, they can be an excellent family pet, as they are very affectionate with people of all ages.
