Knowing The Black Siberian Husky

May 31, 2008
So many people bring a Black Siberian Husky into their homes not really knowing what they are all about or what they can expect. They are a compact breed with a thick coat and considered a working dog that is capable of withstanding freezing temperatures down to an amazingly impressive sixty degrees below zero. Even though Black Siberian Husky's are mostly black, it is not uncommon for them to have white markings on their face.

And although the blue eyes are something that attracts most people to the Husky, not all of the dogs have the same blue eyes. There are many different Husky's that have amber, brown, or even a mix of two different colors, for example one eye could be blue while the other one is brown. There is no mistake, as this breed is one that will need proper attention as the thick and warm undercoat and their softer outer coat, makes for brushing to be a must.

And something that is not so widely known about this breed is that not all of the different dogs have the same blue eyes. There are dogs with brown and amber and there are also Husky's out there that have one eye of each color.

But if it is a guard dog that you are keeping an eye out for, you may what to reconsider this breed, as this dog will not bark often, as they love absolutely everyone. While every owner wants their dog to be trained, those who end up owning a Black Siberian Husky needs to know that this breed often has a mind of its own and will only listen to your commands when they feel like it.

Some other important facts to know about the Black Siberian Husky before bringing one into your home is to know what to expect in terms of how big they will grow to be and what health problems, if any, you can expect to have with them.

While many people see the Black Siberian Husky to be somewhat of a larger breed, they tend to think that they do not need as much exercise but that is simply not the case. The males can grow in weight up to sixty pounds and the females can grow up to fifty pounds. Even at their full-grown weight, they still need plenty of room to run.

Also, it cannot be stressed enough that before bringing the Black Siberian Husky into your home that you understand that they can be prone to certain minor eye problems and to hip dysphasia. So it is important to make sure that they are given the needed room to run around and to get their exercise.

If you have no choice but to live within an apartment, it is vital to make sure that the dog is taken out for walks and runs whether it is down the street or to the dog park.
