The eyesight of dogs differs from that of humans in various ways. It even varies from breed to breed. Some dogs have a field of vision that is wider than the 180 degrees of humans.
The Siberian Husky is a strong, compact, working dog. This breed is a member of the Spitz family; it has the ability to haul heavy loads over long distances and rough terrain. In Siberia Chukchi people used this dog for centuries to pull sleds, herd reindeer and perform watchdogging functions. It was a perfect working dog for the harsh Siberian conditions: hardy, able to integrate into small packs, and quite happy to work for hours on end.
The Siberian Husky is a very light-weight sled dog with great stamina. This breed was also used during Admiral Byrd's Antarctic Expeditions. The Siberian Husky has now become very popular as a companion dog, but it is also used for sledding, carting and racing. It is gentle, sweet; it makes a perfect family pet.
All colors; markings on the head are common.
Medium, well-furred; straight and smooth outer coat; soft and dense undercoat. The coat does not need much care except during the twice a year heavy shedding season, when it has to be combed thoroughly with a metal comb.
The Husky is relatively free of breed-specific problems, apart from hip dysplasia and occasional eye problems (such as juvenile cataracts, PRA, corneal dystrophy, crystalline corneal opacities and ectopy (displacement) of the urethra). It may have zinc responsive dermatitis (a skin condition which improves by giving a zinc supplements). To minimize the risk of your dog developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a Husky dog from a reputable Siberian Husky breeder.
