Siberian huskies are one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States, ranking 14th in the American Kennel Club's list of 197 registered breeds. They were born to be resistant to colder climates and bond with other dogs easily. And while they may look similar to their distant relative the wolf, their friendliness comes first, and at full force!
