A: I really encourage you to research the Siberian Husky, they have a fascinating history. Here is my quick version. The Siberian Husky was originally brought to this country by Leonhard Seppala, and were bred to work/pull sleds. As time went on the breed split between the Show standard and the Working dogs. A select group of breeders worked hard to maintain breeding dogs that could excel at racing/pulling while maintaining the standard and lines set by Leonhard Seppala. Those huskies become known as Seppalas. They are still registered as Siberian Huskies but there is a movement within the community to try to create a separate breed and a separate breed standard for high content Seppala Siberian Huskies.
