Siberian Huskies typically have four to six puppies per litter. Bred as sled dogs in Southeast Asia, Siberian Huskies are known for their excellent work ethic and impressive endurance. Because they were bred in incredibly cold climates, Siberian Huskies have very thick coats that require weekly brushing.
Siberian Huskies grow to be up to 23 1/2 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh up to 60 pounds. They have a fun-loving and agreeable temperament and generally make very good pets; however, owners must provide them with plenty of rigorous exercise. Daily walks and a place to run are recommended. Due to their strong predatory instincts, they require supervision around small animals.
