Where Are Siberian Huskies From?
The Siberian Husky was developed centuries ago by the Chukchi people, who used the breed to transport goods and act as companion animals. Due to a climate change in their homeland, the Chukchi expanded their hunting territories, which precipitated a change in the Siberian breed. They evolved to excel at pulling sleds over very long distances without tiring.
The Siberian was first seen in Alaska in 1909, where a team competed in the All Alaska Sweepstakes Race. The breed was noted for their strength and unparalleled endurance, showing great success as working dogs in search and rescue endeavors and as sled dogs.
