Huskies are one of my favourite dogs. The husky dog is also called the sled dog.
They can be found in Scandinavia, Siberia, Greenland, Alaska and Canada. These dogs have very thick fur and they usually have really pale blue eyes. Some of them have brown eyes.
Huskies live in cold habitat and snowy regions.
Often used in work, such as rescue operations or commonly as a form of transport for pulling sledges, they can also make quite loyal pets.
They are becoming very popular as a choice of dog these days.
Is there anything else we know?
Okay. Huskies are one of the oldest breeds of dog.
Huskies don't really bark. They make other sounds like this you hear: Husky dog sounds
Huskies resemble wolves but they are not wolves.
Some of these dogs enjoy digging or running.
The Siberian husky tends to eat flowers and plants.
Unlike many other dog breeds, most huskies can climb up things easily.
Huskies are said to be good with children.
Huskies are a popular trend in Yule celebrations in many towns and city centres. Instead of reindeer, some councils may opt for huskies / sled dogs to pull Santa's sleigh, adding to the midwinter magic of Yule in different angles. The husky tends to be overlooked in myth and fairytales.

If I was to choose a dog, a husky would be very helpful and also fascinating. These dogs are trusting and full of inner warmth, regardles sof the cold that they seem to enjoy.
