Few lovers of this fluffy breed are aware of the wide range of coat colors and patterns that a Siberian Husky can have. Most people believe that Siberians are either black and white or grey and white. Many people think that almost all Siberians have blue eyes.
None of those are even close to being correct.
The American Kennel Club (AKC) registration form only lists the following colors:
Agouti is a pattern made up of various colors that combine to form a pattern characterized as “wolflike” or “wild.” An agouti pattern’s undercoat is often quite dark, while the outside coat has lighter hairs of different colors. The hairs on the coats are darker at the base and lighter at the tip. The Agouti Husky is a lovely dog.
A white Siberian Husky’s white hairs might be pure white or have a yellowish color. There may be a few black guard hairs present as well.
Black & White
The black-and-white pattern is one of the most common in Siberian Huskies. The intensity and dispersion of the black can vary. In certain circumstances, the black can lighten to the point of resembling silver.
Grey & White
Grey, like black, can occur in a variety of intensities. It can seem as a dark stormy grey, with a yellowish tint, or even silvery.
Red & White
A red and white Siberian Husky’s red color can range from a rich, almost dark red to a light copper tone. There is rarely a black Siberian Husky in a red and white Siberian Husky.
Sable & White
Sable is yet another color and pattern combo. The undercoat of a sable is red or copper, and the top hairs are red near the skin and black towards the tip.
Here is a list of some of the other popular colors you might see on a Siberian Husky. While they are not breed standards, the American Kennel Club acknowledges all colors.
The black coat is a full-body coat that does not have a white belly. The color is often pitch black, but can range from light grey to dark black.
Full-body brown color.

Black & Tan & White
The black, tan, and white coat is quite similar to the black, grey, and white coat, except that instead of grey colors, there are various shades of tan in addition to the black.
Brown & Black & White
The mainly brown back of the black, brown, and white coat is accented with several smaller black dots.
Brown & White

Tan & White
The tan and white coat is the same diluted brown color as the tan coat, but it also has a white belly.
Copper & White
The copper and white coat is a red and white coat with a diluted red tone that appears copper.
Black & Grey
The colors grey and black Siberian Huskies often have more grey coloring than black, despite the fact that grey replaces the traditional white.
Many Siberian Huskies have a white bottom that extends to their face and paws, as evidenced by the list of colors above. In this section, we’ll go over a few more patterns and eye colors.
This coat has one dominating color that covers the majority of the dog, with two other colors appearing as markings or minor patterns.
A dark undercoat and topcoat with multiple different colors that have a dark base and tip with a lighter color in the middle are typical of the agouti pattern.
Another pattern we mentioned is the sable, which has a red or copper undercoat and a topcoat with hair with a red base and black tips.
The Merle pattern is associated with major health risks. Eye issues, deafness, impaired immune system function, and a condition known as Double Merle are all symptoms of the Merle pattern. Double Merle is a hereditary disorder that exacerbates the health problems connected with the Merle pattern.
When both parents have the Merle gene, the result is a double Merle. This issue might lead the puppy to be stillborn or to have missing or underdeveloped eyes. They are more likely to be deaf, and they may be deaf and blind.
