Siberian Husky Print
The Siberian Husky’s ancestors were originally bred in northeastern Asia by the Chukchi people and were kept as companion dogs for their families as well as endurance sled dogs. The bread really began to catch the public’s eye in 1925 when Leonhard Seppala led a team of Siberian Huskies 658 miles in only five and a half days to rush a lifesaving serum to Nome, Alaska, where an epidemic of diphtheria had broken out. You may be familiar with Balto, the lead dog on that epic 1925 journey, by a statue in NYC’s Central Park or from either the animated or live action movie.
