Eyes:
The Siberian Huskies eyes are almond shaped, and can be blue, brown, green, or amber. They can also have eyes which
are half blue and half brown, which is referred to as being parti-
eyed.  Having one blue eye and one brown eye is referred to as
being bi-eyed.

Height & Weight:
The male Siberian is anywhere from about 21-23½ inches and about 45-60 pounds. The female Siberian is anywhere from
about 20-22 inches and about 35-50 pounds.

Life Expectancy:
About 12-15 years.

Temperament:
The Siberian is gentle and playful, but willful and mischievous.  A puppy at heart, they are clever, sociable and loving, easy-
going and docile. Though they do generally have a lot of energy,
especially as puppies. They love to be part of the family. Good
with children and friendly with strangers, they are not
watchdogs, for they bark little and love everyone.  Huskies are
very intelligent and trainable, but they have a mind of their own.
Training takes patience and consistency.  Huskies make an
excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot.  This
breed likes to howl. They do not like to be left alone, so if this is
the breed for you, you may want to consider having two. A
lonely Husky can be very destructive. They are good with other
pets if they are raised with them from puppy hood. This breed
likes to roam. Siberian Huskies can make wonderful
companions for people who are aware of what to expect from
these beautiful and intelligent animals.
