    A:

    Pure-white Siberian huskies are less common than other coat varieties, but they should not be difficult to find from a reputable kennel. Most huskies have at least some white markings, particularly on the feet, the tail tip and the face. The Siberian husky's coat is extremely thick and contains two layers. The top layer is composed of straight guard hairs while the undercoat is much denser.
