Let’s find out all the facts about the white Siberian husky.
1. History Of The White Husky
White Siberian Huskies belong to the same breed as other breeds of Siberian Huskies. Like other breeds of Siberian huskies, the White Husky was the dog of the Cherchi tribe of northern Siberia for centuries. The original dog was created for its own sake by the Chukchi people of Siberia about half a million years ago. They valued them as sled dogs and companions. They are capable of pulling heavy sleds over long distances. They were part of a happy family that worked and played with the Cherchi tribe.
In the early 1900s, Siberian Husky dogs were brought to Alaska to compete in the All-Alaska Sweepstakes race. The Huskies finished third in that competition. Since then, most sled dog races have been attended by Siberian huskies.
In 1925, the town of Nome, Alaska, was hit by a diphtheria epidemic. A team of Siberian Huskies brought the antitoxin from Anchorage to Nome in six days in a long-distance relay race. The team of Siberian Huskies won national glory for this heroic effort.
Then, in 1930, the Siberian husky was recognized by the American Kennel Club. The first registered husky was a white Siberian husky breed.

The easiest way to produce a white Siberian husky is to breed it by crossing two pure-white Siberian huskies. Since both parents have pure white fur genes, their puppies will always be pure white.
White Huskies can sometimes be bred from other colors of Siberian Huskies. In that case, each parent must carry the all-white gene. Dogs bred this way have only a 25% chance of being white. This is why it is very difficult to create a pure white husky puppy from two other colored Siberian huskies.
