Husky black and white puppy

Husky black and white puppy DEFAULT

The Siberian Husky’s most commonly recognised color is white. This ranges from pure white or the white with grey which makes them look like a wolf.

But how are these Husky colors actually called? Does it even matter?

Yes, not only is it call to brag about your dog’s color with friends, it’s also helpful if you can express what you’re looking for when choosing breeders.

More importantly, you’ll know whether or not there are health problems with some colors, as is the case with many other breeds.

It doesn’t help with the confusion that the AKC recognises the following color (patterns):

All colors from black to pure white are allowed. A variety of markings on the head is common, including many striking patterns not found in other breeds.

AKC Husky breed standard

The Siberian Husky is truly a unique breed and thus they’ve decided to give a relatively vague description while the colors for other breeds are meticulously detailed.

Let’s dive into the AKC color code for this breed:

  • Red Husky
  • White Siberian Husky
  • Black Husky
  • Black & White Husky
  • Agouti Husky
  • Gray Husky
  • Sable Husky
  • Piebald Husky
  • Saddleback Husky
  • Black Tan & Husky
  • Brown Husky

The UK has a similar list of Husky colors, except for the last three colors: Saddleback, black tan, and brown with white are missing in the UK standard.

However, the UK also adds a couple of color variations through specifications.

Important notice: There is something I want to show you that will change the way you interact with your dog. Check it out here.

Besides the ones mentioned above, the following colors also exist (mostly variations of red, white, grey, and piebald):

  • Light Red & White
  • Red & White
  • Dark Red & White
  • Cream & White
  • Light Grey & White
  • Silver Grey & White
  • Wolf Grey & White
  • Dark Grey & White
  • Black Grey & White
  • Red & White Piebald
  • Black & White Piebald
  • Grey & White Piebald

As you can see, labelling your Husky can be quite the challenge. We’ll dive deeper into how each color looks and what distinguishes them.

Red Husky

The red Husky comes in a handful of colors, ranging from deep red to copper or creamy tones.

Two red Huskies working as sled dogs. One Husky's coat is copper red, the other Husky has a rich red coat.

Copper Siberian Huskies are on the darker, rich end of the red spectrum while your dog can also have a very cream or light red coat.

Sometimes they’re also referred to as “chocolate” or “brown” if the red is very rusty and almost indistinguishable from pure red.

Compared to the other more basic colors like black, grey and white, the red Husky is quite rare.

Red Huskies often comes with pink noses.

White Siberian Husky

The all white Siberian Husky is a favorite of many and comes with a white undercoat.

Pure white is more commonly seen in other breeds. There are plenty of white Huskies with splotches of black, but rarely do you see a purely white one.

White Huskies can look similar to the Swiss Shepherd with their stunning, long fur.

Black Husky

The all black Husky (also called jet black) has a much more intimidating look to him compared to his lighter friends.

Studies have shown that there is a thing such as “Big Black Dog Syndrome”.

All black Husky puppy with white paws.

Don’t be discouraged though, color is absolutely no prediction of your dog’s temperament.

Black is a beautiful color and if you’re interested in going for one, there’s absolutely no issues with that.

The gene that produces the black color in dogs is actually dominant in most cases and yet it’s uncommon to see Huskies where only black came through.

Black & White Husky

The black and white Husky is what you most commonly see when you scroll through cute puppy posts.

Their coat often seems to be washed down a bit with age as puppies often change coat colors a little bit.

Agouti Husky

The Agouti Husky resembles the greyish color of wolves and is dark at the undercoat’s base while showing various mixed colors on the outer coat (hence the agouti markings).

While the space in between can be lighter, the outer coat often resembles the base with its darker color.

Gray Husky

Similar to the agouti color, the wolf grey Husky has a range of colors between his top coat and undercoat.

Contrary to that, the silver Husky doesn’t have as much color variety and the result is a silver, almost blue color.

No other colors like a reddish brown are present and the undercoat is mostly white instead of beige.

A mix of these two is most commonly seen in the grey Husky and it’s called dark grey. The other colors are not as rich, but they can definitely be present.

It’s hard to distinguish grey Huskies from each other and they might even be confused with the pure agouti/sable Husky if you don’t manage to check out the undercoat colouring.

Sable Husky

The sable Husky has a reddish undercoat and black on the tips. The coat is partly white which makes them easy to confuse with the red ones.

Shades of grey can overlap with the copper red color.

Piebald Husky

The piebald Husky has splotches of black on his back and around the ears.

Contrary to the regular black and white Husky, the black spots are more pronounced and don’t take up as much real estate of the Husky’s body.

Piebald Huskies are very rare.

Saddleback Husky

Similarly to piebald, saddleback is more of a pattern in the Husky instead of a color. It looks the white is sitting on top of a darker colored coat.

Black Tan & White

Black and tan Huskies often don’t look like Huskies but mixes instead. A Husky Rottweiler mix is quite often black and tan, for example.

If the tan parts are less pronounced they can just as well look like German Shepherds with their medium-length coat.

Brown & White

It’s really hard to differentiate between a brown and white and red or copper Huskies as it really depends on the degree of the brown.

What is the rarest color of Siberian Husky?

The rarest color of Siberian Husky is the pure white Husky while piebald Huskies display the rarest color pattern.

Which Siberian Husky colors you should avoid

The Siberian Husky Club of American (SHCA) strongly discourages the breeding of merle and brindle Huskies as they’re not recognised as purebred.

Check the following statement for more information from the AKC-recognised club:

(…) it is our strong belief that “merle” markings (and the genetic health issues that are associated with the merle gene) and “brindle” markings are not genetically possible in the purebred Siberian Husky gene pool. Therefore, it is our belief that a Siberian Husky exhibiting merle or brindle patterning is the result of impure breeding. As such, the Siberian Husky Club of America, Inc strongly discourages anyone from purchasing or breeding a merle or a brindle Siberian Husky.

Siberian Husky Club of America (Sep. 1, 2018)

Dogs with the merle color can carry many health issues anyway (mainly seen in merle on merle pairings) and even though you may like the appearance, you’re best advised by staying away from this color pattern, especially with the Siberian Huskies.

6 Questions About The White Husky Answered!

Last Updated on

White Siberian Husky,also known as Isabella HuskyThe White Husky is a rare type of the Siberian Husky dog breed, covered in a white coat, also known as Isabella Husky. White Huskie’s best qualities are beauty, strength, and stamina, which makes them stand out to the Siberian Husky dog breed. Their eye color can be blue, brown, or bi-color.

An exceptional dog for the active family, the Husky is also known for his caring and playful nature with children. The White color variant isn’t one that you see in every backyard, but why is this? Let’s take a look!

Contents & Quick Navigation

1. Is It The Same Breed as The Siberian Husky?


The White Husky is a rare color of the dog breed, Siberian Husky. Not to be confused with the Alaskan Husky who is considered an unofficial Husky strain that does not hold registration with the American Kennel Club.

2. What Do They Look Like?

The White Huskies appearance varies from that of the light gray, or isabella white. Spotting the real deal is, in fact, incredibly simple to do, and does not require canine expertise.

A true White Husky will be entirely white in coat color, he ordinarily will display black pigmentation of the nose, gums, and around his eyes – however, these can appear faded in a phenomenon known as “winter nose.” This is akin to us losing our tan over the winter!

An Isabella White Husky will never possess any black pigmentation; instead, it’s common to see their nose, gums, and eyelids in a light brown or liver color.

3. Are The White Husky Puppies Born White?

Some Husky puppies may appear almost white at birth save from a few patches of cream or grey, but this usually indicates that the dog will grow up to be Cream or Isabella White and not pure white.

The real test is whether the puppy’s nose is black. As we mentioned earlier, only a pure white Husky can have a black nose.

Knowing the dog’s family history will help too, but even then – experienced breeders will only be able to determine with a 25% certainty what colors will appear in their upcoming litter.

4. What Makes Husky Become White?

Coat color comes from your dog’s genetic makeup, but unlike eye color or hair color in humans which we can guess reasonably accurately, with dogs, it’s more of a guessing game.

Your puppy’s parents and grandparents play a role in determining what color your future pup will be, but it’s not guaranteed. Imagine if you and your sister were throwing in name ideas into a hat, and for every name that one of you threw in – the hat got to randomly throw in one or two suggestions. Well, simply put, that’s how color selection works!

There is a lot of information on the technicalities of genetics and how that affects coloration, it’s an interesting read but not necessary to be able to find your very own White Husky!

So I Can’t Guess Accurately Just From Looking at His Parents?

Unfortunately not.

Your pooches parents have a bunch of different colors through their ancestry, so just because they’re white, it doesn’t mean that they can’t pass on the color of a grandparent who happened to be red!

The colors passed on won’t always be the same, meaning that if you breed the same dogs again – you won’t be able to know what color the puppies will be. Instead, each egg cells and sperm cell can possess different building blocks for color – but each sperm or egg cell can only have one. Therefore you’ll often see litters of puppies sometimes all being born different colors.

However, some genomes are dominant, and therefore we do know with some level of certainty that if you were to breed two dark Huskies together – you’re highly unlikely to welcome a white puppy into your home.

It Can’t Be That Hard To Work Out Though!

Sure, with only thirty-nine chromosomes, you’d be forgiven for assuming that it would be easy to look through and figure out which color your future puppy will be. But while thirty-nine doesn’t sound like too many, remember, that’s in every single cell that makes up every single puppy.

When looking at the DNA of your pooch in general, If we had to look at his entire genome – that’s 2.8 billion base pairs of DNA! Best leave it to the expert breeders to figure out how to get you that White Husky you’ve been dreaming of, right?!

Does My Dog Have the White Gene?

You may be surprised to hear that two pigments ultimately determine the coat color of your future dog, and neither is white.

These pigments, which are both forms of melanin, are Pheomelanin (red) and Eumelanin (black). You may be wondering how there is such an abundance of color choice in dogs if only two color pigments exist.

Well, it’s pretty simple; specific genes either enhance or block these pigments from developing. For example, a pure white husky is a result of particular genes preventing the pigment to all hair.

But it’s not just coat color that these two pigments work on, in fact, a presence of eumelanin is responsible for giving your dog his black nose. But, a lack thereof causes your Huskies eyes to be blue.

It may sound confusing that he can have pigment in some areas but not in others, but just as some kids from the same family can be born with brown hair and brown eyes, it’s not unheard of for one out of the bunch to be blonde and blue eyed!

So it should be no surprise that puppies from the same litter can appear to be unique from their siblings.

5. Do They Have a Friendly Temperament?

Purebred white siberian husky lying on a lawn.Now that you understand what determines the coat color of your future husky, it’s time to get to know the breed!

A large breed, the Husky, is the perfect cold weather canine. With a coat unlike any other, they can not only survive, but thrive in inhospitable climates such as Siberia, Alaska, and the Arctic.

When working, the Husky is focused on his job and is very much part of his pack. He is not to be petted and played with. However, when brought up in a family environment; the Husky makes an exceptional, and loving companion.

The Siberian Husky is an incredible canine, famed for his prowess as a sled-dog. While many famous explorers enjoy the spoils of success for having conquered treacherous terrains – their dogs, who made the journey possible – are left out of the history books.

Siberian Husky History

Huskies have been around since the Chukchi people of Eastern Siberia began breeding them. This resilient dog breed was ideal to help them with herding, and hunting.

The nomadic hunter-gatherers often hunted large animals, the majority of this focused on Reindeer, but they have been known to go after Marine Mammals and even Polar bears.

As this population of indigenous people moved constantly, they traveled with not only all of their possessions but the masses of hides and poles that made up their famous tent homes. Because of this, they relied on their huskies to help pull the sleds holding these disassembled houses.

The Alaskan Gold Rush

A Russian fur trader by the name of William Goosak is believed to be the first to take these dogs to new parts of the world.

Upon hearing about the gold rush in Nome, Alaska; Goosak bought a team of sled-dogs from the Chukchi people and headed to where the money was.

The locals initially made fun of the Siberian Huskies, nicknaming them rats due to their small stature of 35 lbs when compared to their own Alaskan Malamutes weighing in at a whopping 70 lbs.

Soon, the locals were eating their words, after seeing the world’s greatest sled dog in action. It is the Huskies size that allows him to be more nimble, and have better endurance than their native sled-dog.

Sled-Dog Racing Champions!

It was here in Nome, Alaska that we believe sled-dog racing as a sport first began. With many gold hunters all boasting that their dogs were the best, some confident fellows finally put it to the test – and sled-dog racing was born – and is still going strong today!

While color doesn’t help with speed, the white, or the Albino Husky sure runs with style, blending into their surroundings like no other.

Many owners joke that they would prefer not to have a White Husky lest they lose them in the snow!

6. How Do I Know If I’m Ready to Welcome My Husky Home?

White husky wearing a hat in winterAll responsible dog owners have to make some important decisions on whether they will be the right owners for their preferred breed before welcoming them home.

If you had your heart set on a Great Dane but lived in a tiny house, and were out at work all day – you know that you have to adjust your expectations based on what will be best for your new fluffy member of the family.

All too often, we see Huskies being bought by responsible, caring, and loving owners – but, they forgot to consider one little thing. The weather!

Huskies are cold weather dogs, their coat is designed specifically to insulate them, and while it can do a good job of keeping them cool, living in tropical or incredibly hot climates is just not fair on them.

The Huskies coat is also very delicate and should never be clipped, so if you do happen to live somewhere a little warmer than your dream dog would like – we have the perfect solution!

Here is our pick for an alternative dog breed that shares many traits with the Husky, but, he can live comfortably in hot weather!

A Great Husky Alternative – The Australian Cattle Dog

  • Height: 16-20 inches (43-51cm)
  • Weight: 30-35 lbs (14-16kgs)
  • Lifespan: 13-15 years

With a similar aesthetic to the Siberian Husky, the Australian Cattle Dog possesses alert ears, a smiling mouth, and a medium-shedding coat just like his winter-ready distant relative!

white-husky (4)Cattle Dogs pull ahead as the winner for hotter climes due to their medium length coats which allow them to not only survive but thrive in treacherous lands such as the Australian Outback where they were originally bred to drive cattle.

Famed for their intelligence, this working dog, even though he’s not the best pooch to pull a sled – loves having something to do.

Just like the Husky, he thrives in a family environment, and while he is often shy among strangers, he is loving, playful, and protective of his family.

With many coat colors to choose from, it is possible to find a white, dappled white, or patchy white Australian Cattle Dog to welcome into your family!

My Opinion

Huskies are a fantastic breed, and there is no doubting that the pure white versions are incredibly impressive to look at.

It can be a hard and long task to find a pure white husky puppy, but if you have your heart set on a white husky, why not consider buying or adopting an older dog?

Husky Colors: 8 Colors a Siberian Husky’s Coat Can Be

Looking at Instagram feeds that feature huskies, you cannot help but notice that the colors of their coats add to the "aww!" factor or their overall appearance and demeanor. 

A Siberian husky's coat can have all colors from pure white to mostly black, with a variety of markings and patterns. In addition to black and white, common colors found on Husky coats include agouti, tan, brown, grey, red, and sable. 

Read on as we describe eight most common standard colors there are and learn about some of the rare husky colors that you can find on a Siberian husky.

What Are the Different Colors of Siberian Huskies?

From coats that make them look like a wolf to something softer in tones and hues, you can expect to see Siberian huskies in a wide array of different colors. 

According to the American Kennel Club, standard colors of Siberian Huskies include:

  • Agouti and White
  • Black 
  • Black and White
  • Black Tan and White 
  • Brown & White
  • Gray & White
  • Red & White
  • Sable & White
  • White

The Federation Cynologique Internationale writes that all colors from white to black are found on Siberian huskies. They have a double coat that can grow to medium length without obscuring the outline of your dog. Siberian huskies also have markings on the head, including striking patterns that you can only find in this particular breed of canines.

Siberian huskies have coats with two layers: the topcoat and the undercoat. Their coats can have different colors, such as black, white, gray, brown, red, and cream, or a combination of any of these colors.

Huskies usually have white paws and legs, a wide variety of facial markings and color patterns, white-tipped ears and tails. Which together withNot to mention their striking eyes, which also contributes and make this dog one of the most desirable to own 

Black and white is the most common combination of coat colors for Siberian huskies. Copper red and white, as well as grey and white, are also quite common. Agouti-colored coats are rare. 

Let’s take a look at these notable coat colors and combinations:


 While it is common for mammals such as wild rodents to have this color, agouti is rather rare in huskies. It involves a dominant dark mask that can make your dog's face look dirty. The agouti hues can reach down a husky’s entire body. It is caused by the agouti gene and usually gives the dog a wolf-like and wild appearance.

Agouti is generally grayish in appearance, but it also has a salt and pepper look. Agouti usually has a mixture of tan, gray, red, and black colors.

Mostly Black

A pure black color of the Siberian Husky is considered rare. The color allows scattering of white patches, mostly on the legs, face, chest, and tip of the tail. To be classified as this color, the dog's body must have a minimum of 75% black. Many huskies that are close to pure black will still have some markings in white. Pigmentation of the nose, lips and eye strokes should be strictly black.

Black and White

You can find three shades of black on Siberian Huskies:

  • deep jet black
  • black 
  • diluted black

Other huskies have more colors accentuating their black coat. Some have an undercoat of white, beige, or any shade of gray, and there are also some with red hues.

Black, Tan, and White

Black and tan coloring is extremely rare, but it does exist. You’ll usually need to visit a breeder who specializes in this color combination if you want a Husky with this collection of hues.

When you say brown in terms of Siberian husky colors, it can mean two different shades of brown: copper and sable.


Copper has tinges and shades ranging from yellow to brown. It might be monochromatic or banded, with liver-colored points. The undercoat may be copper, brown, or light red, while creme is also found in banded dogs. Copper may be:

  • Chocolate copper, which has a deeper and darker brown color
  • Red copper, which has a tone that is more red than yellow
  • Orange copper, which is more yellow than red

Sable coats in Huskies are always banded and have black points and tips. The undercoat may be orange, chocolate, or red. One difference between this and wolf-gray is that the undercoat is never beige.

Red and White

Red and white coloration is related to the liver points, or the nose, eye rims, and lips. It's also characterized by the total absence of black hair.

Gray and White

Gray and white Siberian huskies have three possible shades of gray:wolf-gray, silver, and darker shades of gray.

Wolf-gray mixes a warm shade of gray with red, tan, or beige colors around the ears, back, and legs. The gray topcoat mixes very well with the beige undercoat.

Silver gray is the result of restricting the agouti gene, and you have coats with a tinge of silver or blue, or any of the colder shades, unlike wolf-gray, which has warmer brown to red hues. What's more, silver huskies have white undercoats.

Medium to dark gray, on the other hand, is the most common among gray Siberian huskies. It can have a tinge of warm hues and tones, but it's most muted. The undercoat is a combination of silver and beige.

While most Siberian huskies have white markings and undercoats, it is very rare to have one that is pure white in color, but it does not indicate albinoism. Having a pure white topcoat and undercoat means that the hues were completely restricted.

Markings and Patterns

When it comes to markings, black points and piebald are standard. Meanwhile, merle coat patterns are not permitted when breeding Huskies due to the health issues the associated genes can cause.

Pinto patterns are when there is an overabundance of white where other colors should be, especially over the front legs and shoulders.

Piebald Siberians will have mostly white fur with some irregular patches of color.

Merle Coat Patterns

Merle is a pattern gene, according to the Siberian Husky Club of America. The presence of this gene alters the base coat color that results in lighter patches. The Merle coat pattern either has a mottled look or a combination of spots or color smears, like on the picture below.

The SHCA says that Merle patterns can only come from impure breeding. The main issue with Merle patterns is that they can signify that the dog may have problems with its sight or hearing. The problem becomes more pronounced when two Merle dogs are bred, where there is a one in four chance that there will be a double Merle dog.

Double Merle puppies may be born deaf, blind, or both. Others may have smaller than normal-sized eyes, or they may not have eyes at all. In other double Merle dogs, there would be eccentric pupils, underdeveloped iris, or irregularly shaped pupils. Double Merle dogs may also have other vision-related problems.

Why Are Huskies have Different Coat Colors?

The varied colors you see on huskies are brought about by genetics. Genes can produce a certain color in their coats or restrict the formation of other colors. 

These genes are usually denoted by symbols. Here are some examples of genes and their effect on coat colors include:

  • Ag, which gives a husky their agouti color
  • ach, which restricts red and yellow, giving your dog a silver coat
  • ay, which restricts dark colors and produces tan or sable coat colors
  • B, which is required for black colors to appear anywhere
  • Cc, which results in total albinism
  • D, which can intensify coat color or give the dog's coat a full color
  • T, which gives the husky a single color throughout
  • Ty, which gives your husky a yellowish or sable coat
  • Sw, which gives the dog a pure white coat

What is the Best Color for Husky?

Just like the hair on humans, there is no best!

When huskies are responsibly bred, their color is of least importance to good breeder. The same goes for eye color. The AKC Standard states that any color is acceptable, and indeed their color codes for registration cover a broad spectrum of shades.

  When selecting a puppy you should be on the lookout for a healthy animal that has passed vet checks and is likely to meet your family's lifestyle.

Can Husky Puppy's Coat change color?

When a husky is born the general coat color is apparent but can change over time. There is no way to predict if, when or how the coat will change color.

Change is often natural and unavoidable. It can happen during shedding, as a topcoat may be different color to the undercoat. Of cource, this is nothing to be concerned about! It is to be expected of any animal that sheds hair. Also exposure to sunlight, or simply the physical growth of the animal. 

Why Focus on Siberian Huskies?

When you talk about huskies, two different breeds come to mind: Alaskan and Siberian huskies. 

There are noticeable differences such as Alaskan huskies being shorter and more lightweight, as well as differences in temperaments. 

However, Alaskan huskies are mixed breeds between Alaskan malamutes and Siberian huskies, and they can have any color. Unlike Siberian huskies, breeding Alaskan huskies is not regulated by organizations such as the American Kennel Club.


Whether you are purchasing a puppy from a breeder or adopting from a rescue organization, Siberian Huskies come in all sorts of colors, markings, and patterns. It isn't something you should be concerned about because color has no indication as to temperament or behavior. Just keep an open mind and take your time selecting a companion that will fit you and your family!

P.S. If you want to make sure your Husky’s coat maintains a healthy sheen, I recommend reading an article on the Best Shampoo for Huskies. Using the right shampoo is essential in keeping your Husky’s coat as beautiful as possible. You can also read Best Brush for Huskies if you’re invested in keeping your pup’s coat maintained at the highest level of quality.

I smiled, kissed you on the cheek and turned away towards the TV. watched you. You looked at me incomprehensibly.

Now discussing:

After the kiss, she said, smiling, Then it was cool, you are macho, but my butt hurts a lot. I sincerely regretted what I did, what shes to blame for, that mom is now fucking with this Michael Misha. Took Elsa in my arms and carried her to my bedroom. Changing positions with breaks during which we drank wine, we fucked until the morning.
