In this section, we plan to inform and enlighten you with the history of these amazing creatures!
The Chukchi People of Siberia
These huskies originated in Northeast Asia, where the Chukchi people bred huskies to pull sleds and companionship. The husky was bred to be a work dog with a double coat, triangular ears and markings very similar to the Alaskan malamute. To this day in the AKC National Championship and the Westminster Dog Show they are in the “Working Group” class for show!
The Russian Fur Trader that started it all
The husky was originally thought to be introduced to Alaska during the Nome Gold Rush in Nome, Alaska in 1908 by William Goosak. The dogs were known to be super resilient to harsh weather and great working dogs with superb companionship skills.
This played a key role in one of the major historic events that we still cherish, a statue in New York City's Central Park.
In 1925 a harsh February has struck Alaska when word got out that a diphtheria outbreak had taken over Nome, Alaska. The mushers Gunnar Kaasen and Leonhard Seppala and their dogs most famously known Balto & Togo delivered a serum that would save many families.
But some of the most known films to actually feature Siberian Huskies have been movies like Eight Below and Z nation.
But even the biggest of names have picked up their fair share of the husky craze, like Disney making movies like Balto, Snow Buddies, Eight Below & Togo or even animated series like PAW Patrol where Everest is a Siberian Husky!
The Husky in Todays World
Today there are still Huskies to perform at a high level in the Iditarod that sled pull from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska!
They have proved themselves all over the world with the smarts and agility they have!
