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.
