Q: What is the difference between a standard, plush, and wooly coat Siberian Husky?
A: Maintenance of coats vary by length, so be sure if you want a wooly coated Siberian Husky that you are willing to keep up with it.
- A standard coat Siberian Husky is when her/his outer guard hair is between 1 inch to an inch and half in length. Their fur seems to look flat and thin.
- The plush coat is between the standard and wooly coat. Not flat nor fluffy. Just in the middle. The length of their outer guard coat hairs tends to between an inch and a half to 2 inches.
- The wooly coat simply means a slightly longer, thicker, much fluffier coat than the average coat for a Siberian Husky. Their outer guard hairs are longer than 2 inches.
Q: Are Huskies good with children?
A: Yes! Siberian Huskies are excellent with children. :)
Q: Do you sell Mini Siberian Huskies or Merle Siberian Huskies?
A: There is no such thing as a miniature Siberian Huskies or Merle Siberian Huskies. Thus we do not breed them. If a “breeder” is stating they are selling you a miniature Siberian husky than they are selling you a mix breed or an unhealthy pup or selling you a pup around 4 to 5 weeks old. If a “breeder” is trying to sell “Merle Siberian Huskies” then they are selling a mix Siberian Husky.
The following is what the Siberian Husky Club of America states about Merle Siberian Huskies:
The SHCA strongly believes that merle patterning is NOT genetically possible in a purebred Siberian Husky, and is only possible due to impure breeding. As such, the Siberian Husky Club of America, Inc. strongly discourages anyone from purchasing a merle Siberian Husky.
The following is what the Siberian Husky Club of America states about Miniature Siberian Huskies:
Miniature Siberian Huskies are not a breed or variety of Siberian Huskies and as such are not recognized by the SHCA or the AKC. The SHCA and its members strive to protect and promote the working abilities of the breed as described in the official AKC breed standard which states: “Height: Dogs, 21 to 23 1/2 inches at the withers, Bitches: 20 to 22 inches at the withers”. The SHCA and AKC recognize that this height requirement depicts a functional working sled dog which can still perform its original purpose for which the breed was developed. Any significant deviation from these height requirements cannot function as a proper working sled dog and thus cannot be deemed a correct Siberian Husky.
For those who prefer a small breed dog, please consider one of the smaller AKC recognized breeds.
