About 15,000 years ago, people began forming permanent settlements. Humans created waste, and wolves began to feed on it. The less nervous wolves would stick around longer and began to form groups based on this one trail the ability to eat in proximity to humans.

Darwin believed that humans tamed wolf pups, and bred those with desirable traits. Over time, these scavenger wolves began to look and behave like dogs, surviving on low-grade food. Their heads, bodies and teeth shrunk, and they no longer formed packs. The village dog is not a mongrel or mutt, but rather the missing link—the dog from which all modern dogs descended.

For more than 1,000 years a tribe of people known as the Chukchi have inhabited the Arctic coastal region of northern Siberia...a land where the extremes of winter make life a daily challenge just for survival.These Asian Chukchi people once depended on It is there that the Chukchi dog, the progenitor of today's Siberian Husky, was developed. The hearty dogs pulled sleds, herded reindeer and guarded property in a challenging, frigid environment.  

Over many generations of breeding, the Chukchi developed the breed of dog that most suited their needs. Although their permanent home was inland, the Chukchi hunters worked primarily along the coast, with seal as their main food source. The hunters' catch was not so heavy as to require large dogs capable of pulling great weight. Instead, the Chukchi hunters needed a dog that could withstand extended exposure to the low temperatures, pull a light to moderate load quickly over long distances, and expend a minimum amount of energy in the process.  They did not have qualities of the guard dog. They weren’t overly suspicious of strangers or aggressive with other dogs. They are intelligent, tractability, and have an eager disposition to be an agreeable companion and willing worker.

These quick, small working dogs were docile and intelligent enough to work in teams proved to be most suited to work the terrain. They had to be hard, eager workers that had enough common sense and dedication to their task to keep from constantly tangling themselves in the lines of the sled.

The Chukchi so valued their dogs that they often took them into their homes as guardians for their possessions and companions for their children. This, no doubt, accounts for much of the gentleness in the Siberian Husky personality. 

The Chukchi dog's most important trait was its instinct and desire to run, seemingly endlessly. Because of its moderate size, it was able to run far and fast, but it could not pull much weight. Therefore, teams of up to 20 dogs at a time were required to pull the hunters' load.

The Chukchi were able to breed a dog that combined all these traits, and today's Siberian husky traces to those dogs.

The fate of the Chukchi dog...and the birth of the Siberian Husky breed...
The Chukchi people were able to withstand conquest however because their sled dogs always kept them ahead of any advancing military forces. They could not fight, but they could run - efficiently. The Chukchi were accustomed to the Siberian weather; and Russian soldiers were not.


The Chukchi actually forced the Consent to give up their quest to conquer all of the northern Siberia. The Chukchi lured the Russian forces into a mountain pass, in which all escape routes were blocked. Using only sharpened rocks and spears, the Chukchi inflicted substantial casualties on Russians, who subsequently withdrew from the area. 

By the close of the nineteenth century, the Chukchi dog had been discovered by Alaskan traders, imported into the Northwest Territory, and renamed the Siberian Husky.

The importation proved to be a very important event for the survival of the breed.Their amazing stamina captured the attention of passing fur traders, who eventually brought the dogs to other parts of the world.

They still compete in sled races, but also delight pet owners with alert, gentle and independent spirits. Despite having been developed in cold climates, Siberian Huskies adapt well to a variety of living conditions as well as many types of families.

General Appearance

The Siberian Husky is a medium-to husky brawn built size working dog, quick and light on his feet and free and graceful in action. His moderately compact and well furred body, erect ears and brush tail suggest his Northern heritage. His characteristic gait is smooth and seemingly effortless. He performs his original function in harness most capably, carrying a light load at a moderate speed over great distances. His body proportions and form reflect this basic balance of power, speed and endurance. The males of the Siberian Husky breed are masculine but never coarse; the bitches are feminine but without weakness of structure. In proper condition, with muscle firm and well developed, the Siberian Husky does not carry excess weight.

A working Siberian husky is most used to haul medium to extreme heavy loads on a sled. these brawn built Siberian huskies are call the wheel dogs as they are built very real. They are built to take on the heaver side of the sled work load in pulling. while the rest of the head team gain the speed force of the sled keeping every thing in smooth flowing balance.

Disqualification  Dogs over 23 inches and bitches over 22 inches.

Neck, Top line, Body    

Neck;:medium in length, arched and carried proudly erect when dog is standing. When moving at a trot, the neck is extended so that the head is carried slightly forward.

Chest: deep and strong, but not too broad, with the deepest point being just behind and level with the elbows. The ribs are well sprung from the spine but flattened on the sides to allow for freedom of action.

Back: The back is straight and strong, with a level top line from withers to croup. It is of medium length, neither choppy nor sleek from excessive length. The loin is tuff and lean, narrower than the rib cage, and with a slight tuck-up. The croup slopes away from the spine at an angle, but never so steeply as to restrict the rearward thrust of the hind legs.

 

Faults Neck too short and thick; neck too long.

Faults Chest too broad; "barrel ribs"; ribs too flat or weak.

 Faults Weak or slack back; roached back; sloping top line.

Tail

The well furred tail of fox-brush shape is set on just below the level of the top line, and is usually carried over the back in a graceful sickle curve when the dog is at attention. When carried up, the tail does not curl to either side of the body, nor does it snap flat against the back. A trailing tail is normal for the dog when in repose. Hair on the tail is of medium length and approximately the same length on top, sides and bottom, giving the appearance of a round brush.

 

Faults -A snapped or tightly curled tail; highly plumed tail; tail set too low or too high.

Forequarters    

Shoulders The shoulder blade is well laid back. The upper arm angles slightly backward from point of shoulder to elbow, and is never perpendicular to the ground. The muscles and ligaments holding the shoulder to the rib cage are firm and well developed.

Forelegs When standing and viewed from the front, the legs are moderately spaced, parallel and straight, with the elbows close to the body and turned neither in nor out. Viewed from the side, pasterns are slightly slanted, with the pastern joint strong, but flexible. Bone is substantial but never heavy. Length of the leg from elbow to ground is slightly more than the distance from the elbow to the top of withers. Dewclaws on forelegs may be removed.

Feet oval in shape but not long. The paws are medium in size, compact and well furred between the toes and pads. The pads are tough and thickly cushioned. The paws neither turn in nor out when the dog is in natural stance.

 

Faults Straight shoulders; loose shoulders.

Faults Soft or splayed toes; paws too large and clumsy; paws too small and delicate; toeing in or out.

 

Hindquarters    

When standing and viewed from the rear, the hind legs are moderately spaced and parallel. The upper thighs are well muscled and powerful, the stifles well bent, the hock joint well-defined and set low to the ground. Dewclaws, if any, are to be removed.

  Faults -Straight stifles, cow-hocks, too narrow or too wide in the rear.
Coat    
The coat of the Siberian Husky is double and medium in length, giving a well furred appearance, but is never so long as to obscure the clean-cut outline of the dog. The undercoat is soft and dense and of sufficient length to support the outer coat. The guard hairs of the outer coat are straight and somewhat smooth lying, never harsh nor standing straight off from the body. It should be noted that the absence of the undercoat during the shedding season is normal. Trimming of whiskers and fur between the toes and around the feet to present a neater appearance is permissible. Trimming the fur on any other part of the dog is not to be condoned and should be severely penalized.   Faults -Long, rough, or shaggy coat; texture too harsh or too silky; trimming of the coat, except as permitted above.
Color  

All colors from black to pure white are allowed. A variety of markings on the head is common, including many striking patterns not found in other breeds.

  Faults: spotted of large splash pigment
Gait    
The Siberian Husky's characteristic gait is smooth and seemingly effortless. He is quick and light on his feet, and when in the show ring should be gaiting on a loose lead at a moderately fast trot, exhibiting good reach in the forequarters and good drive in the hindquarters. When viewed from the front to rear while moving at a walk the Siberian Husky does not single-track, but as the speed increases the legs gradually angle inward until the pads are falling on a line directly under the longitudinal center of the body. As the pad marks converge, the forelegs and hind legs are carried straightforward, with neither elbows nor stifles turned in or out. Each hind leg moves in the path of the foreleg on the same side. While the dog is gaiting the top line remains firm and level.   Faults -Short, prancing or choppy gait, lumbering or rolling gait; crossing or crabbing.
      Temperament      
The characteristic temperament of the Siberian Husky is friendly and gentle, but also alert and outgoing. He does not display the possessive qualities of the guard dog, nor is he overly suspicious of strangers or aggressive with other dogs. Some measure of reserve and dignity may be expected in the mature dog. His intelligence, tractability, and eager disposition make him an agreeable companion and willing worker.
Summary

The most important breed characteristics of the Siberian Husky are medium to husky Brawn size, moderate bone, well balanced proportions, ease and freedom of movement, proper natural thick coat, pleasing round head and thick correct ears, full correct tail, and good disposition. Any appearance of excessive bone or weight, constricted or clumsy gait, should be penalized. The Siberian Husky never appears so heavy or coarse as to suggest a freighting animal; nor is he so light and fragile as to suggest a sprint-racing animal. In both sexes the Siberian Husky gives the appearance of being capable of great endurance. In addition to the faults already noted, the obvious structural faults common to all breeds are as undesirable in the Siberian Husky as in any other breed, even though they are not specifically mentioned herein.
