The Siberian husky was developed by tribesmen in the Soviet Arctic approximately 3,000 years ago. Intended to carry small loads over great distances, members of this breed are truly endurance athletes. They are agile, powerful, strong and graceful.
Height Standards for the Siberian Husky
The American Kennel Club describes the Siberian husky as a medium-sized member of the working group. Height is measured at the withers -- or shoulder blades, and males are generally a bit taller with a height of 21 to 23.5 inches. Females range between 20 and 22 inches tall.
