I chose Siberian huskies because they are my favorite type of vertebrates. I like them because they have a very nice coat and they can have multi- colored eyes.
Siberian huskies will get to be very big dogs when they mature and they will also get more muscle on there body. A male will get to be around 21-23.5 inches to the shoulders, and will be 45-60 pounds in weight. A female will get to be around 20-22 inches to the shoulder, and will be 35-50 pounds in weight. Both genders will be slightly longer then they are taller.
Their coat can come in four different types of color. Most common colors are black and white, gray and white, copper and white, or all white. All huskies no matter what color will have white paws, legs, faces, and tail tips. They have a very thick double coat, which mainly helps them survive the cold climates. The topcoat will protect the dog from ticks, thorns, burs, and anything that will get stuck in its coat. The inner coat is for warmth and it enables them to survive in cold climates. They will shed their entire coat two times a year, but they will shed lightly year round. If you own a Siberian husky be prepared to find dog hair on couches, chairs, and on the floor. If you do not want a Siberian husky to shed as much you will need to brush them at least 3 times a week.
Siberian huskies have a very sensitive stomach. You should feed your husky the more high in foods that are naturally made. Raw meat should also be in your huskies diet. You should always let you husky outside to run and play before you feed them because if they run after they eat they have the possibility of getting Gastric Volvulus (bloating).
The Siberian husky was bread to be a working dog in the cold environments. They can survive in cold harsh environments with ice and snow because of their heavy coat. Although a husky would prefer a cold place they can adapt very easily in a warm humid environment.
