Amber Siberian Husky Kennel

 

Breed Standards (AKC):

General Appearance:

The Siberian Husky is a medium-sized working dog, quick and light on his feet and free and graceful in action. His moderately compact and well furred body, erect ears and brush tail suggest his Northern heritage. His characteristic gait is smooth and seemingly effortless. He performs his original function in harness most capably, carrying a light load at a moderate speed over great distances. His body proportions and form reflect this basic balance of power, speed and endurance. The males of the Siberian Husky breed are masculine but never coarse; the bitches are feminine but without weakness of structure. In proper condition, with muscle firm and well developed, the Siberian Husky does not carry excess weight.

Size, Proportion, Substance:

Height--Dogs, 21 to 23½ inches at the withers.

              Bitches, 20 to 22 inches at the withers.

Weight--Dogs, 45 to 60 pounds.

              Bitches, 35 to 50 pounds.

(Weight is in proportion to height.)

Eyes:

Eyes may be brown or blue in color; one of each or parti-colored are acceptable.

Coat Color:

All colors from black to pure white are allowed. A variety of markings on the head is common, including many striking patterns not found in other breeds.

Summary

The most important breed characteristics of the Siberian Husky are medium size, moderate bone, well balanced proportions, ease and freedom of movement, proper coat, pleasing head and ears, correct tail, and good disposition. Any appearance of excessive bone or weight, constricted or clumsy gait, or long, rough coat should be penalized. The Siberian Husky never appears so heavy or coarse as to suggest a freighting animal; nor is he so light and fragile as to suggest a sprint-racing animal. In both sexes the Siberian Husky gives the appearance of being capable of great endurance. In addition to the faults already noted, the obvious structural faults common to all breeds are as undesirable in the Siberian Husky as in any other breed, even though they are not specifically mentioned herein.
