Did You Know?

These intelligent and hard-working dogs have been used in a number of roles over the centuries. In no particular order, they include herding reindeer, pulling sleds and even keeping children warm.

They have a long history of helping humans, in fact. Some say the breed began with the Chukchi tribe of Siberia, though various other tribes are occasionally credited with helping them evolve too.

Siberian Huskies were made famous in 1925 when they delivered a diphtheria serum after a city was stricken by an epidemic.

Though built for the harsher climes of Siberia, they managed to find their way to America in 1909. As one of the most popular dogs in the Unites States today, we’re glad they made the journey.
