Siberian Huskies are the wolf-like snow dogs Americans have come to love, and it’s little wonder why. They’re friendly, even-tempered and gorgeous dogs. For these reasons and more, they’ve snagged the #7 spot on our list of most popular dog breeds.

Here are 7 Siberian Husky facts that you should know:

1. Huskies are one of the oldest dog breeds.

Huskies could be around 27,000 years old, according to scientific evidence. DNA from the bone of the ancient Arctic Wolf, a close relative of the Husky, provides a clue suggesting that Huskies are one of the oldest dog breeds.

2. They’re made for the snow.
It’s a given that Huskies thrive in cold climates, but do you know which of their features make this true? For starters, their thick double-coat keeps them warm in temperatures under negative fifty degrees Fahrenheit! In addition, their furry, sturdily-clawed paws gave them a good grip on rough, icy terrains. They can also dig deep enough holes to shelter themselves from chilling winds.

3. They have unique physical features.
Huskies often have icy-blue eyes that match their affinity for the cold, and many times, they will even have two different-colored eyes, a trait called heterochromia. In this case, one of the two eyes will almost always be blue. Their coats also come in six different shades, according to the AKC: agouti and white, black and white, gray and white, red and white, sable and white and just plain white.

4. They make great family dogs.
Never mind their great strength and vigor; Huskies aren’t as intimidating as they look. They make gentle companions to all members of the family, both big and small. While they generally require more obedience training than other breeds, they do not have an aggressive reputation, and will be loyal to their trusted pack.

5. They’re champion sled dogs.
Huskies first joined the All Alaska Sweepstakes Race in their second year of competitions. After a team of Siberian Huskies won the 400-mile race in 1910, the breed remained victorious for the remainder of the decade, winning most of the racing titles in Alaska.

6. They’re town heroes.

Huskies are more than just medal-winning sled dogs; they’re heroes, too. When an outbreak of diphtheria plagued the inhabitants of Nome, Alaska in 1925, teams of the valiant dogs raced to the scene to deliver life-saving medicinal serum.

7. They have a loud howl.
Much like their relative the wolf, Huskies are known to howl rather than bark. Their howl can be heard from up to 10 miles away!
