Siberian Huskies have this magnificent, powerful look in them. My first Siberian husky have double coats.

I had already have huskies that are black and white, gray and white or copper red.

They can also be all white Siberian husky but I’m not really fascinated with a husky with this color so I won’t be owning a white Siberian husky anytime soon.

Another great feature I love about Siberian Huskies are unique facial markings or what is commonly called mask.

5. Siberian husky facts: Eyes

Siberian huskies eyes are most commonly light blue but some have one blue eye and the other hazel or brown.

No matter what color, their eyes are strikingly penetrative and intelligent, I don’t know if it’s just me but nothing can beat the looks of a blue eyed husky.

6. Siberian husky facts: Temperament

AKC standards make it clear that the Siberian Husky should come off as friendly and gentle, but also attentive and outgoing.

He should not have the suspicious and possessive alertness of a watchdog and should be good with strangers and other dogs.

Even though a Siberian Husky should be sociable, he shouldn’t be the over eager type. He should have a mature and reserved attitude, which would add to his dignity as a mature dog.

The temperament of the Siberian Husky should reflect his intelligence and prove him as a loyal companion dog as well as an eager and efficient working dog.
