Ten Most Interesting Siberian Husky Facts

The Siberian Husky is a Spitz type Arctic dog originating from, as its name suggests, Siberia. This is one of the most famous dog breeds in the world that will literally charm you at first sight with its gracious stance, wolf-like appearance and cute gaze. But, it is not just about the beauty of this dog. Huskies are also well-known after their incredible personality, which is highlighted by huge affection for humans, lively spirit and pack loyalty. These qualities make them excellent family companions, who like to spend as much time as possible with all the members of the household. They are particularly nice and tolerant with children.
