Alaskan Huskies are smaller than Siberian's.  Picture a grey hound and a siberian mix.  Alaskan's I believe are used more for racing.

I had my Siberian Husky registered in AKC so I don't think they are unrecognized. Also they are some of the smartest and strongest breeds there is. Tanisha

One thing I forgot to add is that Alaskan and Siberian huskies are the same thing. Those are just two different names for them. Most registries will recognize them as Siberians.

Alaskan huskies are Siberian huskies bred with other breeds of dogs to make the racing dog more faster, or help their endurance, to help with overall racing. Siberian huskies were developed by the Chukchis in Siberia for pulling sleds. They are not the same breed but Alaskans are merely mixes.

Poodles are quite easily trained but it's actually the dogs that are harder to train that are smarter. (they can think their way out of doing what they're told to do) Poodles can be cute but they are some of the most inbred dogs that there is. That's right. Why do you think people started cross breeding them with other dogs? (labradoodle, chick-a-poo, etc)

Tanisha should not speak anymore.  Alaskan Huskies and Siberian Huskies are different breeds.  Alaskan Huskies are not recognized by the AKC.

Angel should be quiet also.

Wow most of you guys are really uneducated.  Don't give answers if you don't know the truth.

Alaskan huskies are mutts.  They are Siberian Huskies mixed with any breed of dog which is why the alaskan huskies have such a wide variety of looks.

Siberian huskies are purebred.

As for the size of an alaskan husky-- I think it really depends what dog they were mixed with.

Siberian huskies are a purebred developed as one of the oldest breeds of dog.
The Alaskan husky is only recognized in Alaska where sled dog races allow non-purebreds. The Alaskan Husky is a combination of Siberian husky, German short haired pointer, and greyhound. Some Alaskan huskies do not look like huskies, some do more than others, some look more like hunting dogs.
The Alaskan is faster with more endurance, is taller on average and lighter.
The Siberian husky is a very light weight for their size built and bred for thousands of years to pull on 1/4 the food intake of any other breed doing the same work.
It is a proven fact that pound for pound the strongest pulling dogs in the world are the husky breeds. They are the only breeds (huskies and Alaskan malamutes) that can safely pull more than their own weight all day long without any health problems or concerns.
By all means look at the results in any real pulling competition, compare results among breeds, and by body weight, the top pulling dogs are always malamutes and huskies, known in competitions to pull 10 to 20 times their own weight.
They are natural born athletes, 30,000 years of selective breeding and natural selection stands behind todays Siberian husky.

I have had the great misfortune of having our Husky take down the family rabbit. I know from the previous (neglectful) owner that she cleared the yard of their wild rabbits, so she already had a taste for them. How our rabbit got out of his cage remains a mystery, though we nicknamed him "Bundini The Great Escape rabbit" for a good reason. It was a bad scene for my wife and daughter to behold, since I wasn't there when it happened, I was exclusively in charge of all post mortem detail (burial, removal of the cage,etc.). My question is this: Up to this point our Husky has only "mouthed" the cats when she's caught up to them in the house. Am I to start worrying that she will try to take the cat's down now? She's just turned a year old and is still a pesky puppy regarding getting all over the cats. The cats WANT to be friends with her, one of the cats even tries to groom her before getting slobbered and "mouthed". The cat then whacks her in a "stay still I'm trying to accept you, you stupid dog!" kinda way. I don't want to get rid of her, because we all love her very much, and putting her down is off the table. But Finding a new home for her might be on the table (not that I want to go that route).
