Did You Know: 7 Husky Facts

You have heard all of our best Husky Names. Now, sit back and let us wow you with these top 7 husky facts. After these, you will definitely understand why this is a breed everyone goes mutts over.

They Were Born To Live In The Cold

Huskies have three special physical characteristics which help keep them warm in the colder climates:

  1. Their coat – They have a double coat to keep them nice and toasty, even in the snow. They have an undercoat that is soft and warm and a long overcoat that is water-resistant.
  2. Their eyes – Their distinctly almond-shaped eyes ensure that they are able to squint efficiently to keep their eyes protected from the snow.
  3. The Swirl – They sleep with their tails wrapped around their faces; this ensures that they are able to protect their nose and face from the cold.

They Were Employed By The Army

Although it may be a well-known fact that Huskies were bred to be working and sledding dogs by Alaskans, it is not a well-known fact that they served in World War II. Huskies were used in World War II for transportation, freighting, and communicative purposes as well as being search and rescue dogs.

They Can Come In A Range Of Colors (Fur And Eyes)

Husky pups can come with a variety of colored fur. For example, agouti, white, black and white, brown and white, grey.

Additionally, their eyes may come in a range of colors too. From green to hazel, to brown and then, of course, an ultimate favorite, the piercing blue-eyed Husky.

They May Develop A Pink Nose In The Colder Months

Also known as hypopigmentation, this condition is referred to as “Snow Nose” or “Winter Nose”.

When a Husky has this condition, their nose goes pink or more pale in color during the cooler months. This change can become more permanent as they age but generally returns to normal once summer approaches.

They Are Smart Yet Naughty By Nature

Huskies are known to be among the most intelligent breeds of canines. However, they have a naughty and mischievous side where they can be very stubborn and sometimes a little too playful.

Don’t panic, just be patient, remain positive and you’ll get there!

  3. My daughter named her female Husky Blu, she kept 2 pups from her first litter…the male’s name is Dash and the female Vixen!

  4. I am having a hard time deciding either Skye or Mika. Our baby Siberian husky is to be born in next few days!

  5. I have all females. Names are, Misha, Tasha, Mika and my just born will be Skyla. I’m getting a predominately copper and white one for Christmas. Any good suggestions…got to be different and from the tundra area

  6. I’m trying to find a good name for my Husky puppy that is brown and white with blue eyes. I like the name nanook, arrow, aspen, but I’m not sure due to his color?

  7. Have a female named Denali; a male named Koda and a feisty little female from the south so she had to get 2 names as its southern tradition, Eska-Mo

  8. My first husky out of college 1978 – Natasha – nickname Tasha, 2nd Husky 1994 Blizzad! She lived to be 15 years , and was a true sleddog , wheel dog in Bavaria Germany., 3rd husky, one of Blizzard’s pups , Glacier , and finally my Wild 1/2 Italian & 1/2 American Husky Dakota! I love all my girls And everyone had a truly different persona. Natasha, Blizzard, Glacier & Dakota 🐾🍷

  9. I had the best female husky ever! She lived to be just over 15 years. Her name was Zena. She was gray and white and got darker the older she got. She had one blue eye and one brown. Planning on getting another female soon.
