Full Answer

Siberian Huskies have a very thick coat of medium-length hair that comes in a multitude of colors. Their coats have very distinctive markings, and they often have very wolf-like facial features. Another trait of this dog breed is their blue or multi-colored eyes. They are known for their beauty.

This breed is also known for having a very high intelligence level with a staggering ability to learn. This is very evident through their ability to escape any back yard and slip out of their collars with ease. While they can be characterized as wild, because they are pack animals, this breed requires a dominating, in-control owner. Siberian Huskies with timid owners have been known to misbehave and wreak havoc.

While they are difficult to train, they tend to have very even temperaments. They are very social animals and work well in homes with children or other dogs. They are independent, and while they don't vie for an owner's attention, they are very affectionate.
