Are these husky pictures making you smile? Huskies are very independent which can be both a good and a bad thing. Their love of exploration and running free will make them a great outdoor companion, but make sure you don’t let them feel too free or they may run away.

The gang’s all here!

Although this photo may say otherwise, huskies won’t constantly hound you for food. Even with all the exercise they require, they don’t require much of a food break like other breeds. This is attributed to their ancestors who worked all day with only the occasional break for food and water.

Huskies are very intelligent. They are hyper-aware of their surroundings and understand commands pretty quickly. That being said, if they don’t want to do something, they certainly won’t. Your commands are merely just suggestions.

As warm and fluffy as they are, huskies are strong. They were bred by the Chukchi Eskimos in northeastern Asia as sled dogs. As the nomads needed to expand their territory for survival, huskies were bred to pull loads over long distances in temperatures less than zero.

Sleepy pups

Husky is a general term for several breeds of dogs used as sled dogs. Huskies were originally used as sled dogs in northern regions but are now also kept as pets. Historically, the word “husky” is a corruption of the term “Eskie,” also shared by the Inuit tribes. Huskies like to sleep curled up with their tails touching their nose. This position is known as the “swirl.”

Since huskies are pack dogs, they typically do very well in households that have multiple dogs—preferably another husky. But if you aren’t in a place to have a second dog, just make sure that you can give your husky the attention it needs.
