WHAT ARE THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS AND WHERE DID THE SIBERIAN HUSKY COME FROM?
WRITTEN BY XENA
The SIBERIAN HUSKY breed was first mentioned by the CHUKCHI people, who are autochthonous people inhabiting the CHUKCHI Peninsula, the shores of the CHUKCHI and BERING SEAS, and the Arctic Ocean within the former USSR (Siberia).
The CHUKCHI selected the best dogs to get a fast, strong, hardy dog with good orientation, and this is the story of the origin of the SIBERIAN HUSKY breed. By the way, it is a medium-sized working dog(males 20-27 kg, females 16-23 kg) from the SPITZ family. The color of the fur ranges from gray-white, black-and-white, to red-and-white. The characteristics of this breed are blue eyes. Although there are some with brown eyes, the real curiosity is BI-COLOR EYES, ie different eye colors, and even the eye can be interspersed with blue and brown shades. In the early 20th century, the HUSKY was transferred from SIBERIA to ALASKA, where it was used to pull sleds. The race soon spread to the rest of the United States and CANADA, and in the 1950s they reached EUROPE as well.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS AND WHERE DID ALASKAN MALAMUTE COME FROM?
The ALASKAN MALAMUTE is considered one of the oldest draft dog breeds. The ALASKAN MALAMUTE is thought to have originated from dogs, which as far back as 2000 years ago followed the migration of tribes from SIBERIA to ALASKA.
It was named after a native INNUIT tribe who called themselves MAHLEMUT and inhabited the highlands of western ALASKA. The MALAMUTE has a thick and coarse and dense outer coat with a greasy and woolly undercoat. The colors range from black and white (wolf) with a lighter belly and a lighter mask, to completely white and completely black, but there are also combinations of reddish-brown and beige with white.
The MALAMUTE is corpulent. This is proved by its weight - from 34.5-to 38 kilograms. Otherwise, it is a very intelligent, affectionate, loyal, hardy, and very cuddly dog with a pronounced urge to hunt. He quickly bonds with the owner and his family.
