Siberian husky Description
  The Seberian Husky is a strong, compact, working dog. It comes in all colors from black to pure white. The variety of markings on the head is common, including many striking patterns not found in other breeds. The eyes are almond shaped, moderately spaced and set a bit obliquely. It is a common misconception that all Siberians have blue eyes, but in fact they can be blue, brown, amber, or any combination there of including eyes which are half blue and half brown, which is referred to as being parti-eyed. Siberians can also be bi-eyed, meaning that it could have one blue eye and one brown eye. It has large "snow-shoe" feet that have hair between the toes for gripping on ice. Its ears are set high and erect and a sickle-shaped tail. It has a thick, wooly undercoat and a soft outer coat. It is able to withstand temperatures as low as -58 degrees to -76 degrees F.
