Everyone recognizes Huskies for their blue ocean eyes, even though brown eyes are nearly as common. In this article, we’ve answered the most glaring questions about a husky with brown eyes, so keep reading if you’re interested!

Can Huskies Have Brown Eyes?

Even though most Huskies usually have blue eyes, some can have brown eyes too. In fact, brown eyes are the second most common eye color, right after blue. And these brown eyes can come in different shades and hues. 

For instance, you might notice black-eyed Huskies, but those pupils are actually dark brown. You can also find Huskies with caramel or amber eye colors. 

Blue and brown colored eyes are dominant genes in Huskies, which means they have a high chance of being inherited. If both parents of a Husky have those two eye colors, they might result in an interesting condition called heterochromia, which is when two pupils have different colors.

Are Brown Eyed Huskies Rare?

There seems to be a myth that all Huskies have beautiful blue eyes, but that’s far from the truth. Although huskies with brown eyes aren’t usually shown as much on dog shows, they’re almost as common as blue-eyed Huskies.

So don’t be surprised if you spot a husky with brown eyes at the dog park! On the other hand, brown eyed huskies are significantly more common than huskies with green eyes.

Husky With Blue And Brown Eyes

Huskies with blue and brown eyes have a condition called heterochromia, which means that they have different colored eyes. This condition is caused by a lack of melanin in one of the eyes, which results in the blue color.

Heterochromia is a rare trait and makes huskies with this feature stand out from the crowd. Although it seems all huskies on Instagram have this rare trait!

While this condition is harmless, it’s essential to ensure that the pup’s eyes are healthy and free from any underlying conditions. If you’re interested in getting a husky with heterochromia, be sure to find a reputable breeder and prioritize the health and well-being of the pup above their unique eye color.

What Determines Husky Eye Color?

Huskies are known for their striking eyes that captivate people, but what exactly determines the eye color of a Husky? The short answer is genetics.

There are two types of genes: dominant and recessive. Brown eyes are considered dominant, so there’s a high chance a Husky puppy will have brown eyes if its parents have them too. 

Do Huskies Change Eye Color?

Husky eyes often undergo color changes as they grow older. While most Huskies have blue eyes when they’re born, this can change to a different eye color, like brown.

So you can typically expect your Husky pup to have a different eye color at the age of ~6 weeks. But once your pup is ~16 weeks old, its eyes should stop changing color.

Final Thoughts

Now you know that Huskies can have brown eyes. It’s the second most common eye color in this breed. They will most likely have them if one or both of their parents have brown eyes. And don’t be surprised if your husky’s eyes change color!
