The beloved Husky is a dog breed most people associate with winter. Its blue eyes and black/white fur is makes it distinctively unique in appearance than any other dog. Known as a sled-dog, these pups are considered one of the fastest hounds out there. Strong, sturdy and quick, this is one of the main reasons why many use Huskies as sled-pulling pets.
