These are not the huskies you will recognize from commercials, calendars or Walt Disney films. They are slim, trim and healthy athletes capable of running many miles a day while hauling a sled and human behind them. They are beyond the capabilities of a national level marathon Nordic skier, but have a similar muscular and slender physique. Their look is very diverse as they are not a pure breed, but rather are bred for their athletic build, adaptation to cold temperatures and desire to run and pull.
Alaskan huskies are pound for pound the strongest mammal on earth. In top condition they have the capacity to run further, longer and faster than any other animal on earth. Many competitive sled dog racers use Alaskan huskies as seen in the Iditarod and Yukon Quest Sled Dog races.
