Siberian Huskies are alert, sociable animals of gentle temperament. They do not share the natural possessive qualities of a guard dog, display extreme distrust of strangers or assume an aggressive attitude among other dogs. Mature dogs are somewhat reserved and dignified. Their intelligence, docility and desire to please make them pleasant companions and willing workers.
