The cover shows a Mama Husky Dog and her pup. Open the card to a 3-D scene of proud mama and her two adorable husky puppies, playing beside their warm wood dog house. They are having a family day off.
The husky personality is soft and affectionate. They are alert, adaptable, eager to please, and extremely loyal. Because they are are pack animals, they love to spend time with their humans and participate in family activities. They are bright, intuitive, and easy to train but also tend to forget and need reminding. They love little humans (children) and use them as an outlet for their energy.
Huskies make awful guard dogs. They look wild, like wolves. For this reason, many people think that they make fierce guard dogs. In truth, however, a husky is more likely to invite strangers into your home with open paws and give them many licks.
The majority of Alaskan huskies have pointy ears and a tail that curls over their backs.

More about huskies:
If you tell my Sheltie to jump off a cliff, he will obediently do so. If you tell my Husky to jump off a cliff, he will say “After you, Mom.” Now you tell me, which dog is smarter?
If you look into a Husky’s eyes he’ll show you his soul.
The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.
Rambunctious, rumbustious, delinquent dogs become angelic when sitting.
Mischievous dogs with incredible energy, huskies typically don’t bark. Instead they talk to one another and their humans in a soft “woo woo woo” sound. They seem to have a language all their own and if more than one is present, howling sessions are quite common.
Huskies love the outdoors and especially the SNOW!! If it’s snowing outside, they’ll drive you crazy until you let them out. They’re happiest when they’re working, cross-country skiing, sledding, running along your bike, hiking, or any other outdoor activity.
They are highly efficient sled dogs and the breed of choice for world-class dog sled racing and sprint competition.
Husky puppies need a lot of exercise. After all, the breed was bred to pull heavy sleighs in the snow for long distances so they definitely need to maintain an active lifestyle.
They are often referred to as “Houdini’s.” Huskies are well-known to be escape artists. Why? Because they were bred to go long-distance. They’re not bred to be in the backyard and just look beautiful because they have blue eyes.
Appearance wise, Alaskan Huskies are usually leaner in build than Siberians with a more pronounced tuck-up. Siberians often have blue or any combination of blue and brown eyes, whereas Alaskans often have brown eyes. Crosses between the Alaskan and the Siberian are called Alaskan Amerindian Huskies.
The Iditarod Sled Dog Race is an annual long-distance sled dog race run in early March from Anchorage to Nome, entirely within the US state of Alaska. Mushers and a team of 16 dogs, of which at least 5 must be on the towline at the finish line, cover the distance in 8–15 days or more.
