5. They’re not great watchdogs.
Huskies–are, not–one-person–dogs—they’re–unsuspicious–and friendly to strangers. This can be–charming, but it’s not–very helpful when you’re–looking for a canine sentry. Of–course, their fierce–wolf-like features–might be–enough to deter–any–intruders.
6. Huskies don’t get fatigued.
Huskies–often–runs long–distances on very little–food. When humans–attempt–this, we start to–use our–body’s glycogen–and fat and eventually–get–fatigued. But huskies burn a lot of calories–without ever–tapping–into–these other–energy–stores—and they do this–by–regulating–their–metabolism.
“Before–the–race, the dogs’ metabolic–makeup is similar–to–humans. Then–suddenly they–throw–a–switch—we don’t know–what it is yet—that–reverses all–of–that,” animal exercise–researcher Dr. Michael S. Davis–told the–New–York Times. “In a–24-hour period, they–go–back to the–same type of–metabolic–baseline you–see in–resting subjects. But–it’s–while they are running–100 miles a–day.”
