Siberian husky puppies will initially have a puppy coat which can make them look like a little ball of pure fluff! As puppies grow their coat changes. Around 10 months of age, puppies will shed their original coat and grow their final, adult coat. This process is completed by the time they are 12-14 months of age.


Siberian huskies require a lot of brushing in order to keep up with their thick and dense undercoat. Even though Siberian Husky puppies do not shed, they should get used to regular brushing and grooming from an early age since as adult life as huskies shed a lot!


Siberian huskies like to keep their owners guessing on what their final eye color will be.

All puppies are born eyes shut. After 10 to 14 days puppies begin opening their blue eyes and around 6 to 8 weeks of age their eye colours settle to their final colour tone. In rare cases a puppy's eye colour can change as late as 6 months of age.

Growth rate:


Siberian huskies grow rapidly in the first 6 months of their life, after which the growth slows down. They will continue growing until about 12-18 months, though at a much lower rate than during the first months of life.


Many intact males will continue to fill out, build muscles, and broaden their chest until they are over 2 years of age.

How big do Huskies get?


Siberian Huskies reach the same adult size regardless of colour. For males this is 21-23.5 inches in height and 45-60 pounds in weight.


Females will stand 20-22 inches at the withers and reach 35-50 pounds in weight. 


Note – Miniature Huskies are a separate breed that will stay a lot smaller than regulation-sized Huskies.
