Huskies came from Siberia, later on they started to appear in Us and Canada.
A Husky’s habitat is snow and cold temperatures. They have thick fur like a wolf. Years ago in the Nome Gold Rush, Huskies would pull heavy loads across rough terrain in difficult conditions. Huskies also were used to herd reindeer. Today huskies are primarily a pet or show dog.
Huskies are carnivores they would eat all meat and dog food. They like raw food the best.
Female Huskies are not ready to breed until 2 or more years. They would have more than 2 cubs each year. They can have brown, black or grew colours.
When Huskies hunt they bounce on their prey like a cat. Wild Huskies would hunt rabbits, birds, lambs or a sheep if they got a chance.
In the winter of 1925 a sled dog team led by a Husky named Balto and driven by Gunnar Kassen became heroes when they were able to deliver medicine to treat diphtheria outbreak in Nome, Alaska. Today a statue of Balto stands in central park as a tribute. By Aaron Mc Donagh.
