What Is The Mystery Behind Those Striking Blue Eyes of The Siberian Husky?

Siberian Huskies have the most gorgeous blue eyes. Some of them can have different colors, like brown, hazel or amber. They sometimes have one eye that is blue and one that is brown. However the Siberian Husky breed is known for their light blue eyes. So what is the cause of them having those striking eyes? It’s in their genetics.

The Genetics of Blue Eyes in Huskies

Siberian Huskies have a specific gene that causes a loss of pigmentation in the irises but not the coat, which is why Huskies can have dark coats and blue eyes. This gene allows their eyes to range in color from very light blue to very rich blue. This particular gene is rare. While some breeders believe it can cause blue eyes in border collies, too, it is primarily seen in the Siberian Husky breed.
