I plan to become a breeder in a few years and I am trying to find a show or working line Sibe that is mainly black. I have checked hundreds of sites but can only find black and white dogs. My friend breed her dogs for her own team and the stud was wolf grey and the mom was wolf grey as well I think but two pups turned out black and sort of reddish. They are stunning dogs with blue eyes and I’d like to try to find another dog like that. I was going to get another from her but she decided to spay them.
If you plan to become a breeder in a few years, the first thing you need to do is understand that color has *nothing* to do with the breed’s original function, and that educated, responsible breeders don’t breed for color. You breed for structure, health, and temperament. Color rates somewhere between immaterial and, "huh…look at that."
Blue eyes are equally useless to function.
More to your question, there are no solid black Siberians. Even those that are primarily black have some white, whether it’s socks or chest markings. What you’re describing in your friends’ dogs sounds like wolf grey or agouti.
You will find primarily black Siberians in many working lines, however no responsible working breeder is going to sell you one if your only intention is to breed for color.
If you truly intend to become a responsible breeder with an eye on maintaining the integrity of the breed, you will find a mentor who shows or works their dogs (or both) and start learning about what truly makes the Siberian Husky what it is. Again…that’s not coat or eye color.
