White Husky dogs have a thick, glossy pale coat that gives them the look of a polar bear dog! They might have slightly darker patterns on their face or paws, but they are almost entirely snowfall pale. These gorgeous puppies are often pure bred, and have that classic confident personality and general good health. Although they are a little more prone to color related conditions such as deafness. A white husky dog may have brown eyes, blue eyes or one of each!
Some white Siberian Huskies have a tinge of yellow or beige in their coats that can only be seen in the right kind of light. These dogs are called Isabella Huskies.
Working White Husky Dogs
The husky dog originally hails from Siberia in northern Asia. The first evidence of the breed dates back more than 3,000 years. The Husky was originally bred by the Chukchi tribal people in Asia to assist with transportation and hunting jobs. The white color was not added later by mixing breeds, but is a natural part of their lineage.
Although they have been welcomed into pet homes in the past few decades, they retain that drive and wintery coat condition.
What Does a Purebred White Husky Look Like?
The Siberian husky dog is bred in two sizes: standard and miniature. The standard husky is considered to be a medium-size dog that weighs between 35 and 60 pounds. Adult male dogs will outweigh females by about 10 pounds.
Adult white husky dogs typically stand 20 to 23.5 inches tall. These dogs are lean, muscular and strong. The miniature husky will weigh 18 to 25 pounds and stand 12 to 16 inches tall.
The husky can look deceptively lightweight, especially since this working dog has a natural grace and poise. But make no mistake; this dog is very strong and powerful. They have alert, erect triangular-shaped ears, almond-shaped eyes. And intense, lean and proportionate bodies and fox-like bushy tails.
White Husky Grooming and Shedding
The very first husky dogs were bred in one of the harshest, coldest climates on Earth: Siberia. These dogs have evolved to have a thick, double layer, insulating coat. It’s water repellent on the top layer and dense and warm underneath.
Huskies shed year-round. Twice per year they will do something very memorable called “blowing coat.” As the name suggests, when the seasons change the husky will go through a tremendous shedding cycle.
You will always need to groom and brush your husky to remove shed hairs that get trapped in the undercoat. During the seasonal coat blows, brush your dog daily to keep the shed hair under control.
Happily, you don’t need to have your dog professionally groomed or trimmed even if you want to show your white husky.
White Husky Personality
The husky dog breed evolved out of a long lineage of working dogs involved in sledding as part of a pack. This created a specialized dog breed that is incredibly social and thrives when surrounded by other dogs and people.
Siberian huskies sometimes get the reputation of being aggressive or temperamental. Often the real reason is that the dog is left alone and is not given sufficient exercise.
A bored husky dog can quickly become very destructive. The white husky will not do well if left alone for hours each day. This is not a lap dog or a house pet. This dog requires an active lifestyle with lots of exertion and interaction every single day.
The Siberian husky is a working dog in heart and soul. This breed was carefully developed to run long distances in very challenging conditions and weather. This means your white husky dog will need lots of exercise.
Running is likely to be your pup’s favorite type of exercise. However, never let your husky off the leash to run unless you’ve done a lot of recall training or are in an enclosed area.
Not only will this put your dog in danger from traffic, wild animals, other pets and unknown situations. But you may not ever get your dog back. Your yard must be completely escape-proof from above, below and on all sides.
Husky dogs love to run, and they love to dig. Breeders recommend installing fencing that is at least 5 feet high. It is also smart to install underground barriers to keep your husky from digging an escape route.
White Husky Training and Socialization
Sometimes white husky dogs are deemed not too smart because they can be challenging to train. However, the Siberian husky is incredibly smart. Training issues arise when you don’t understand your dog’s unique breed history and how it affects the husky personality.
Siberian huskies are very sociable and love the company of their people and other dogs. However, their work typically involved long hours and whole days of running. They don’t hear traditional commands like “sit” and “stay” all that often. So this breed evolved to require more incentives to obey commands.
Training can take longer and require more reinforcement. The husky has a very strong prey drive that you won’t be able to train out of your dog.
If your household includes other vulnerable family pets, you may want to think about whether a husky is the right dog.
Are They Good Family Dogs?
The Siberian husky is not typically considered to be a good “first time dog owner” dog breed. These dogs can have special training and socialization needs, and require a great deal of time for exercise and grooming. However, the husky breed has a strong desire to bond with their family. Their social personalities also make them terrible guard dogs.
Coat Color vs Health
Like most purebred dog breeds, the husky can inherit certain genetic health issues like hip and eye problems. However, the only condition that has any link to coat color is inherited deafness. All white dogs are more likely to have hearing problems than any other coat color.
White Husky Puppies
Once you have located a breeder who has a litter, including all white husky puppies, choose your puppy. Try to arrange to meet both parent dogs before making a commitment to a puppy. This gives you an idea of the adult size, appearance and temperament of your new puppy.
Always select a puppy that appears bright-eyed, alert and healthy. Make sure the dog has energy, is curious and confident.
The price you pay for a pure white husky with blue eyes can vary based on a number of factors:
- Past show ring awards
- “Pet” versus “show” quality
- Breeder costs
White huskies are traditionally lower in price than huskies with markings. Blue-eyed Huskies are traditionally higher in price than puppies with other eye colors. These factors can affect your final puppy price as well.
White husky dogs with blue eyes from reputable breeders ranges from $500 to $1,000. Siberian huskies are bred in standard and miniature sizes. If you are interested in a mini white husky, expect to pay between $750 and $1,200.
Adopting a White Husky
If you have your heart set on a white puppy, locating a white husky puppy for adoption can be harder to work with versus a breeder. However, there are advantages to seeking an adult white husky for adoption rather than a puppy.
One of those advantages is cost. You may pay between $50 and $200 in re-homing costs for an adult white husky. This is compared to several hundred or even a thousand dollars or more for a puppy.
Your adult white husky dog with blue eyes will already be house-trained and may have additional training under his or her belt.
Many rescue organizations offer additional support to new adoptive parents to strengthen the bond. And increase the chances of a successful match.
Services can include spaying/neutering, free or low cost training classes, supplies and more. But the best perk is that a white husky dog will have a much-needed forever home.
Mine is solid white with one green eye and one blue eye. Her name is Siberia or Beri for short.
My grandson is 4 years old. His mom bought him a white male Husky that was 6 wk. old. My grandson loves his puppy. He says, “Grandma he is not a dog he is family. Well, long story short. At 8 weeks old the puppy had grown and my grandson could no longer hold/carry him without being scratched. This puppy later turned into a long wet tongue kisser. We love him
I just got a 4 month old white husky pup and he is amazing. He just made howls at 5 am in the morning and I couldnt stop laughing because it was so cute and adorable. I tried to shush him but he kept doing it so instead I hugged and kissed to get his attention and it worked. So cuddly and beautiful.

I just adopted a 2 year old White Siberian Husky! The poor dog was abused and right now it looks very malnourished! The foster parent informed me that he is a very picky eater! I noticed he likes to pick up his food and take it to another area and eat or just leave it! I was flabbergasted that the foster parent gave him cook chicken! Any suggestions to get him to eat better! He is very active but needs more weight! I do have a vet appointment next week!

Christina Rollins says
My white husky loves to be my lap dog. She is 2 yrs old, her name is rain-love, and has to set by or on me or one of my children. She must sleep curled up next to my head in bed or she wont sleep. She will howl all night and keep everyone in the house up if she isn’t. And if there is no room for her to set by me she nudges my legs tell I move them for her to lay under them, kind of like a tunnel. She also does my son’s that way. She does not like strangers. She will not let anyone new pet her unless I tell her to be sweet and stay, she is the first one at the door when someone comes over and do not just walk in, she does not like that. Her ears go back and all her hair stands on end on her back, and then the howling starts. If a new person sets by me she has to put herself in between them and me. If I tell her no that she is being rude she will set at my feet and watch them. She does great with hand signals. A snap and point and she is there. But if she doesn’t want to do it she will let you know. Howling the entire time she does it. If you howl back she will keep howling. We do back and forth like I’m talking to one of my children that wants to argue.
