Siberian Husky

Despite its name, the siberian husky is mainly bred in North America and the United States, originally a working dog.

The husky has a thick fur coat which enables the dog to be adequately warm in sub-zero temperatures. This means the husky is often used in the mountains of Alaska and Canada mainly for pulling sleds.
