SIBERIAN HUSKY COAT (FUR)
Just like the eyes the Siberian husky also possesses a unique range of coat colors and patterns. These coats are black and white, grey Siberians such as the three grey, white such as pure white, agouti, copper or red, sable, pinto pattern and dirty faced Siberians.
- The three grays coats in Siberian husky can come in three shades of grey such as; silver, medium or dark grey and wolf grey.
Silver is the restriction of the expression of the agouti gene. They have a coat which is silvery or blue tone with no red, beige or tan. Their undercoat is white with black which is at the tip of the hair. Due to genetic dilution factor the shade of silver in these dogs become blue, slated in colored by pigment.
Medium or dark grey produce the most common of the grey color in which a red or tan tones is allowed but not to their fullest extent. Medium/dark grey is the mixture of beige and silver.
Wolf grey provides each dog a hair with a range of color from a gene called the agouti. The undercoat is beige. The gene produce warm shade of tan, grey, red or beige behind the ears and appears on the leg and back.
- Pure white are said to be the rarest coat color of the Siberians husky. This white color is as a result of complete restriction of pigment, with an extension of white over the entire body of the dog. Their undercoat is white or silver. The colors of the nose or skin around the eyes are liver or black point.
- Black and white is their undercoat, and Siberian husky may be white, beige, charcoal or mixture of the three.
- Unlike the pure white coat the agouti color Siberians are equally rare. They are known as wild coloring which has the exact look of a wolf with a special marking and mask. While the white marking are cream the mask is dark and very heavy. The Siberians husky undercoat is charcoal, with a mixture of black, tan, red or grey in the outer coat. They have a black root color and tip of hair, and the middle is red or tan.
- Red or copper are likely to be the most variety of coats the Siberians have. These red and white Siberians possess liver colored points; their undercoat is cream, light head, or copper. The color can fade through dilution factors from dark to light coloring across the body. This variety allows red coat than tan which bring out it bright color.
