Soon after their import into Alaska, their popularity spread wildly and uncontrollably into the United States and Canada. They were a carefully bred breed which carries with itself an ancient lineage which can be traced back more than 4000 years. This breed was developed by Chucksi people of North Easter Asia.
The purpose of developing this breed was to majorly help in hunting, carry luggage for long distances as the weather of the region was very harsh. Siberian Huskies were a favorite of the Chuskis and they believed that whoever mis treated a dog wouldn’t be allowed on the gates of heaven. This breed was also never overworked and treated with kindness and respect.
