The Eskimo Husky is a small- to medium-sized, Nordic-type dog, which is very well-known for its jet white coat. It is a member of the Spitz family, "Eskie", which is a descendant of the European Spites. Eskimo Huskies are known to be very friendly, alert, as well as intelligent. They are quick learners and become excellent watchdogs.

They are very easy to train due to their willingness to please their owner. The breed would often be seen as a part of various dog acts in the 19th century, in America.

Contrary to their name, these dogs are nowhere related to Eskimos. If you recently brought a puppy home, we know that picking out the perfect name is all you can think of. Well, worry not! Here are some of the best names along with their meaning, that you can choose from.
