Alaskan Husky and a Siberian Husky?
There are many actually. For instance, did you know that an Alaskan Husky is not actually a recognized breed in the CKC or the AKC? Yep it's true. The Alaskan Husky is actually bred to be the optimal racing/working dog. A unique mix of different Nordic breeds make the Alaskan Husky have a speed and endurance to them, like no other. While the Siberian Husky was bred for work and sled purposes as well, their appearance also has a lot to do with how they are bred, and are often seen in dog shows as well as racing. whereas the Alaskan is simply built for speed.
|Mika - My Siberian Husky|
I think everyone knows that a Siberian Husky is a well known racing dog. They can run very fast, very long and can endure cold harsh weather. However Sibe's are best used for short distance racing. The Alaskan has been known to race faster, and for longer periods of time. Interestingly enough though, the temperament with Alaskan Husky VS Siberian Husky is very close to the same. Both are affectionate, loving and incredibly playful.
Both are amazing dogs, both are gorgeous, and can make fabulous additions to any family, providing you do your research, and understand the needs of each breed, Feel free to take a look at my "Are Huskies For You?" page for more info.
