From the Inside Flap
The Siberian Husky The modern Siberian Husky is an interesting study in contrasts. The breed was developed in the harsh environment of northeast Asia as a sled dog the Chukchi people could depend on for reliable transport and as a talented drover to help move their reindeer herds. He carries about him an aspect of the wilderness while at the same time he presents a sleek elegance in appearance and action that are much appreciated by modern dog lovers. After the Siberian was introduced to the world beyond his native borders, his working potential was quickly recognized. Eventually, his natural ability in harness truly became the stuff of legend. The Siberian excelled as a racing dog, as the hero of the incredible serum run to Nome, Alaska to combat a diphtheria epidemic, and in many other amazing exploits. Today the Siberian Husky is also a peerless companion for those who appreciate his special essence. He has come a long way from the snow fields of Siberia, emerging into a highly successful show dog and a beautiful clown who delights in activity, independence and a walk on just this edge of the wild side. Does this make the Siberian a good companion? Just ask anyone who shares life with one.
