Although wolf-like in appearance, huskies are no more closely related to wolves than poodles and bulldogs are. While they're all dogs, some huskies may be crossed with wolves, producing a wolf hybrid. That's an entirely different animal from a purebred Siberian husky or its cousin, the Alaskan Malamute.

Huskies are, in fact, a particular breed of dogs. So, to answer the question, “Are Huskies related to wolves?” one must first ask whether or not dogs are related to wolves. Genetically speaking, the answer to this question is, emphatically, yes. The explanation of exactly how dogs and wolves are related is more complicated.

Huskies Do Not Originate From Wolves but Share a Common Ancestor. Every dog shares the same genetics with other dogs than wolves, and wolves are more genetically related to other wolves than dogs regardless of their location.

Despite similarities in appearance, Huskies are not wolves. Huskies are related to wolves. But they are not any more closely related than other dog breeds. Dogs and wolves share a common ancestor.

So yes, a husky is somewhat related to a wolf if you trace down their ancestries: they both evolved from a common ancestor. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the Husky in your home may be more than 20% wolf because the genetic composition of the dog breed has changed a lot over the years through interbreeding and natural evolution.

If you are wondering if Huskies are close to wolves, the answer is still no. Some huskies may be crossed with wolves, producing a wolf hybrid. That is an entirely different animal form compared to a purebred Siberian Husky or its cousin, the Alaskan Malamute.

FAQ

Affectionate and good natured describes the Siberian Husky. Generally, they do well with children although young children should never be left alone with any breed. They also get along with people and do well in homes with multiple dogs. Siberian Huskies were bred to need very little food to survive.
✔️
The answer is yes! Huskies are known for their ability to adapt to any climate, including those ranging from below 75 degrees Fahrenheit to climates such as South Florida and other tropical places. However, just because your dog can adapt to a hotter temperature doesn't mean that you have nothing to worry about.
✔️

"It's pretty amazing that there is a special genetic connection to a wolf that roamed the tundra 35,000 years ago." Scientists once thought that dogs descended from gray wolves.

Now, through genetic studies, researchers know that dogs and wolves share a common ancestor instead of a direct lineage.

✔️
With early socialization and training, Malamutes can learn to get along with other dogs and indoor cats… Their high prey drive can cause a Malamute to stalk and kill small animals, including birds, squirrels, cats and even smaller dogs. They need to be properly socialized and introduced to other companion animals.

Alaskan Klee Kais are usually good with other dogs, especially if they have been socialized early on, though they have a high prey drive. This makes them ill suited for homes that have smaller pets unless they are specifically trained to live with them.
✔️
Huskies make great pets for households with children. They can be very tolerant of children, but like all other dogs, should be supervised when around young children… This gets them used to other dogs and also to people, although they are also very affectionate to strangers.
