Default Wow, I see the difference.

Just browsing through siberian husky kennels, and the difference between Swedish and American is astounding.

Our Siberian Huskies and Siberian Husky puppies at Mikayla Kennels

I prefer the Swedish. They look like they could transfer from the show ring to the sled.

The Swedish Siberian Huskies look more like wild wolves. They probably make better working dogs and have more stamina.

The swedish ones definatly look ready to work.. But the americans seem more equipped for harsh weather , and in the sled dog world, thats a major priority.. lol

The Swedish ones would do fine it almost all harsh weather. Its the density and texture of the coat as much as how much coat the dogs have. You do not need to be fluffy to handle some pretty bad conditions.

Look at the Alaskan Husky. Those are running/winning most of the long sled dog races and they have less coat than either of the linked Huskies. Some might get a coat though, while camping in the coldest weather.

Interesting dogs. If that's what european sibes look like, then I can see how the "utonogans" in england can get so wolfy looking compared to american sibe/gsd blends.

I thought the same thing. I do, however, see a difference between the Swedish and American Sibes besides the weight.

Here's a link to an breeder in Michigan.

Joce I was going to say the same thing My siberians look nothing like on the american site they are very fit I exercise them every day if possible they are in the fourty pound range within the breed standard, and those dogs on the web site i can bet you that most of those are over the standard weight.
