Did you know?

Husky is a general name for a type of dog used to pull sleds in northern regions.  The word originated as a term for arctic people in general. According to the Dictionary of Newfoundland English, English sailors called the native Eskimos “Huskimos,” which was shortened to Husky. The name later extended to their dogs.

Huskies have a genetic closeness to the gray wolf and are energetic and athletic, with a thick double coat – perfect for cold climates – that can be black, gray, white or copper red. Many have striking blue eyes, although they may also be gray, brown or yellow.

You may notice that your husky loves to run. It’s no coincidence – huskies were literally bred to run. More than 3,000 years ago, the Chukchi people of Siberia needed to expand their hunting ground, so they decided to breed the ideal sled dog that could withstand cold and would display high endurance and be able to survive with little food.

  1. I have met many male Siberian huskies named Logan from X-Men Character Wolverine. My own husky is also named Logan. He named himself, we put names on pieces of paper and put them down in front of him, he picked up wolverine so we call him Logan. Logan fits him too. His demeanour is much like Logan from wolverine.
