Huskies are an enigma in the dog world. They look a lot like wolves in terms of black, gray and white colors. They have luxurious coats that do really well in cold weather, but huskies can also thrive in warmer climates. Huskies are very intelligent and protective of their families, and husky moms and dads raise puppies very well. They are active dogs who also love sitting on your lap for some cuddle time.
Huskies may well be the complete package of tough, gentle dogs that need a lot of activity and mental stimulation. Check out the many photos of huskies raising kittens, dogsledding through the wilds of Alaska and Canada, and romping in the snow.
