I want to buy a Siberian Husky, and I'm interested in knowing if they all have blue eyes or if they have different eye colors.

Siberian Huskies may have any of several different eye colors:

  • pale blue
  • dark blue
  • amber
  • green
  • brown

In some individual dogs, one eye may be brown and the other blue (complete heterochromia), or one or both eyes may be "parti-colored," that is, half brown and half blue (partial heterochromia). All of these eye-color combinations are considered acceptable by the American Kennel Club1

The breed standard for the Siberian Husky (english spelling of Husky Siberano) from the American Kennel Club states:

Eyes: almond shaped, moderately spaced and set a trifle obliquely. Eyes may be brown or blue in color; one of each or parti-colored are acceptable. Faults - Eyes set too obliquely; set too close together

So there are several eye colors allowed in this breed.

In addition to what has already been mentioned, color can change in the first few weeks of growth. So by 8 weeks old the puppy might have changed color from a blue color to something darker such as a shade of brown.

Welcome to Can you expand on this answer a bit. When you posted it I did a little quick research and it does that many/most are born with blue eyes that change as they get older, but neither my reference or @Zaralynda s mentions this. A quality reference and more detail would do much to make this an even better answer. – James Jenkins Aug 1 '14 at 10:26
