Dog (domestic dog)

The Siberian Husky is a medium-sized workingsled dogbreed. The breed belongs to the Spitz genetic family. It is recognizable by its thickly furred double coat, erect triangular ears, and distinctive markings, and is smaller than the similar-looking Alaskan Malamute.

Siberian Huskies originated in Northeast Asia where they are bred by the Chukchi people of Siberia for sled pulling, and companionship.[2] It is an active, energetic, resilient breed, whose ancestors lived in the extremely cold and harsh environment of the Siberian Arctic. William Goosak, a Russian fur trader, introduced them to Nome, Alaska, during the Nome Gold Rush, initially as sled dogs to work the mining fields and for expeditions through otherwise impassable terrain.[2] Today, the Siberian Husky is typically kept as a house pet, though they are still frequently used as sled dogs by competitive and recreational mushers.[5]


Further information: Origin of the domestic dog

The Siberian Husky was originally developed by the Chukchi people of the Chukchi Peninsula in eastern Siberia.[6] They were brought to Nome, Alaska in 1908 to serve as working sled dogs, and were eventually developed and used for sled dog racing.[7][8] In 2015, a DNA study indicated that the Siberian Husky, the Alaskan Malamute and the Alaskan husky share a close genetic relationship between each other and were related to Chukotka sled dogs from Siberia. They were separate to the two Inuit dogs, the Canadian Eskimo Dog and the Greenland Dog. In North America, the Siberian Husky and the Malamute both had maintained their Siberian lineage and had contributed significantly to the Alaskan husky, which was developed through crossing with European breeds.[8] Siberian Huskies show an genetic affinity with historical East Siberian dogs and ancient Lake Baikal dogs, and can be traced to a lineage which is over 9,500 years old.[9]

Several Arctic dog breeds, including the Siberian, show a significant genetic closeness with the now-extinct Taimyr wolf of North Asia due to admixture. These breeds are associated with high latitudes - the Siberian Husky and Greenland Dog, also associated with arctic human populations and to a lesser extent, the Shar-Pei and Finnish Spitz. There is data to indicate admixture of between 1-3% between the Taymyr wolf population and the ancestral dog population of these four high-latitude breeds. This introgression could have provided early dogs living in high latitudes with phenotypic variation beneficial for adaption to a new and challenging environment. It also indicates the ancestry of present-day dog breeds descends from more than one region.[10]



Sable female Siberian Husky

A Siberian Husky has a double coat that is thicker than that of most other dog breeds.[11] It has two layers: a dense, finely wavy undercoat and a longer topcoat of thicker, straight guard hairs.[12] It protects the dogs effectively against harsh Arctic winters, and also reflects heat in the summer. It is able to withstand temperatures as low as −50 to −60 °C (−58 to −76 °F). The undercoat is often absent during shedding. Their thick coats require weekly grooming.[11]

Siberian Huskies come in a variety of colors and patterns, usually with white paws and legs, facial markings, and tail tip. The most common coats are black and white, then less common copper-red and white, grey and white, pure white, and the rare "agouti" coat, though many individuals have blondish or piebald spotting. Some other individuals also have the "saddle back" pattern, in which black-tipped guard hairs are restricted to the saddle area while the head, haunches and shoulders are either light red or white. Striking masks, spectacles, and other facial markings occur in wide variety. All coat colors from black to pure white are allowed.[12][13][14][15]Merle coat patterns are not permitted by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and The Kennel Club (KC).[12][16] This pattern is often associated with health issues and impure breeding.[17]

Light grey and white Siberian Husky with brown eyes

The American Kennel Club describes the Siberian Husky's eyes as "an almond shape, moderately spaced and set slightly obliquely." The AKC breed standard is that eyes may be brown, blue or black; one of each or particoloured are acceptable (complete is heterochromia). These eye-color combinations are considered acceptable by the American Kennel Club. The parti-color does not affect the vision of the dog.[18]


Show-quality dogs are preferred to have neither pointed nor square noses. The nose is black in gray dogs, tan in black dogs, liver in copper-colored dogs, and may be light tan in white dogs. In some instances, Siberian Huskies can exhibit what is called "snow nose" or "winter nose." This condition is called hypopigmentation in animals. "Snow nose" is acceptable in the show ring.[11][19]


Female Siberian Husky curled up to sleep with her tail warming her nose

Siberian Husky tails are heavily furred; these dogs will often curl up with their tails over their faces and noses in order to provide additional warmth. As pictured, when curled up to sleep the Siberian Husky will cover its nose for warmth, often referred to as the "Siberian Swirl". The tail should be expressive, held low when the dog is relaxed, and curved upward in a "sickle" shape when excited or interested in something.[11]


The breed standard indicates that the males of the breed are ideally between 20 and 24 inches (51 and 61 cm) tall at the withers and weighing between 45 and 60 pounds (20 and 27 kg).[20] Females are smaller, growing to between 19 to 23 inches (48 to 58 cm) tall at the withers and weighing between 35 to 50 pounds (16 to 23 kg).[11] The people of Nome referred to Siberian Huskies as "Siberian Rats" due to their size of 40–50 lb (18–23 kg), versus the Alaskan Malamute's size of 75–85 lb (34–39 kg).[21]


The Husky usually howls instead of barking.[22] They have been described as escape artists, which can include digging under, chewing through, or even jumping over fences.[4][23][24]

Because the Siberian Husky had been raised in a family setting by the Chukchi and not left to fend for themselves, they could be trusted with children.[25] The ASPCA classifies the breed as good with children. It also states they exhibit high energy indoors, have special exercise needs, and may be destructive "without proper care".[4]

Siberian Huskies have a high prey drive due to the Chukchi allowing them to roam free in the summer. The dogs hunted in packs and preyed on wild cats, birds, and squirrels, but with training can be trusted with other small animals. They would only return to the Chukchi villages when the snow returned and food became scarce. Their hunting instincts can still be found in the breed today.[26]

A 6 ft (1.83 m) fence is recommended for this breed as a pet, although some have been known to overcome fences as high as 8 ft (2.44 m).[24] Electric pet fencing may not be effective.[24] They need the frequent companionship of people and other dogs, and their need to feel as part of a pack is very strong.[27]

The character of the Siberian Husky is friendly and gentle.[28] The Husky cannot be used as a hunting or guard dog. Due to the peculiarities of their psyche, dogs have no aggression towards humans or other animals at all. In addition, the dog often shows independence, which is a disadvantage for service dogs.[29] Attempting to teach Siberian Huskies aggressive behavior can lead to mental problems in the dog. It can be dangerous for the owner, because the Siberian Husky is a big and strong dog.[30] The dog is intelligent, but can be stubborn because of its independence, impulsivity and inattention.[31] To achieve obedience it is necessary to start training at an early age.

Siberian Huskies were ranked 77th out of 138 compared breeds for their intelligence by canine psychologist Stanley Coren.[32] However, the rankings in Coren's published work utilized only one of three defined forms of dog intelligence, "Working and Obedience Intelligence", which focused on trainability - a dog's ability to follow direction and commands in a direct context, specifically by trial judges in a controlled course setting. The Siberian Husky's work as a sled dog, with minimal active direction from a driver, and a driver's reliance on the dogs to make their own decisions in poor conditions likely utilizes the other two forms, "Instinctive Intelligence" and "Adaptive Intelligence" to a much greater extent. Due to these forms of intelligence not being evaluated at all for Coren's list, this makes their ranking on this list possibly misleading.


A 1999 ASPCA publication shows the average life span of the Siberian Husky is 12 to 14 years.[4] Health issues in the breed are mainly genetic, such as seizures and defects of the eye (juvenile cataracts, corneal dystrophy, canine glaucoma and progressive retinal atrophy) and congenital laryngeal paralysis.[33]Hip dysplasia is not often found in this breed; however, as with many medium or larger-sized canines, it can occur.[34] The Orthopedic Foundation for Animals currently has the Siberian Husky ranked 155th out of a possible 160 breeds at risk for hip dysplasia, with only two percent of tested Siberian Huskies showing dysplasia.[35]

Siberian Huskies used for sled racing may also be prone to other ailments, such as gastric disease,[36]bronchitis or bronchopulmonary ailments ("ski asthma"),[37] and gastric erosions or ulcerations.[38]

Modern Siberian Huskies registered in the US are almost entirely the descendants of the 1930 Siberia imports and of Leonhard Seppala’s dogs, particularly Togo.[39] The limited number of registered foundational dogs has led to some discussion about their vulnerability to the founder effect.[40]


In America

Dogs from the Anadyr River and surrounding regions of Eastern Siberia were imported into Alaska from 1908 (and for the next two decades) during the gold rush for use as sled dogs, especially in the "All-Alaska Sweepstakes,"[12] a 408-mile (657-km) distance dog sled race from Nome, to Candle, and back. Smaller, faster and more enduring than the 100- to 120-pound (45- to 54-kg) freighting dogs then in general use, they immediately dominated the Sweepstakes race. Leonhard Seppala, the foremost breeder of Siberian sled dogs of the time, participated in competitions from 1909 to the mid-1920s with a number of championships to his name.[41]

On February 3, 1925, Gunnar Kaasen was the final musher in the 1925 serum run to Nome to deliver diphtheria serum from Nenana, over 600 miles to Nome. This was a group effort by several sled dog teams and mushers, with the longest (264 miles or 422 km) and most dangerous segment of the run covered by Leonhard Seppala and his sled team lead dog Togo. The event is depicted in the 2019 film Togo. A measure of this is also depicted in the 1995 animated film Balto; the name of Gunnar Kaasen's lead dog in his sled team was Balto, although unlike the real dog, Balto the character was portrayed as a wolf-dog in the film. In honor of this lead dog, a bronze statue was erected at Central Park in New York City. The plaque upon it is inscribed,

Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of the sled dogs that relayed antitoxin six hundred miles over rough ice, across treacherous waters, through Arctic blizzards from Nenana to the relief of stricken Nome in the winter of 1925. Endurance · Fidelity · Intelligence[41]

In 1930, exportation of the dogs from Siberia was halted.[27] The same year saw recognition of the Siberian Husky by the American Kennel Club.[12] Nine years later, the breed was first registered in Canada. The United Kennel Club recognized the breed in 1938 as the "Arctic Husky," changing the name to Siberian Husky in 1991.[42] Seppala owned a kennel in Alaska before moving to New England, where he became partners with Elizabeth Ricker. The two co-owned the Poland Springs kennel and began to race and exhibit their dogs all over the Northeast.[43]

Siberian huskies gained mass popularity with the story of the "Great Race of Mercy," the 1925 serum run to Nome, featuring Balto and Togo. Although Balto is considered the more famous, being the dog that delivered the serum to Nome after running the final 53-mile leg, it was Togo who made the longest run of the relay, guiding his musher Leonhard Seppala on a 261-mile journey that included crossing the deadly Norton Sound to Golovin,[44] and who ultimately became a foundation dog for the Siberian Husky breed.[45]

As the breed was beginning to come to prominence, in 1933 Navy Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd brought about 50 Siberian Huskies with him on an expedition in which he hoped to journey around the 16,000-mile coast of Antarctica. Many of the dogs were trained at Chinook Kennels in New Hampshire. Called Operation Highjump, the historic trek proved the worth of the Siberian Husky due to its compact size and great speed.[41] Siberian Huskies also served in the United States Army's Arctic Search and Rescue Unit of the Air Transport Command during World War II.[46] Their popularity was sustained into the 21st century. They were ranked 16th among American Kennel Club registrants in 2012,[47] rising to 14th place in 2013.[48] It is thought that the term "husky" which most kennel clubs adopted, is a corruption of the nickname "Esky" once applied to the Eskimo and subsequently to their dogs.[49]

In 1960, the US Army undertook a project to construct an under the ice facility for defense and space research, Camp Century, part of Project Iceworm involved a 150+ crew who also brought with them an unofficial mascot, a Siberian Husky named Mukluk.[50]

Due to their high popularity combining with their high physical and mental needs, Siberians are abandoned or surrendered to shelters at high rates by new owners who do not research them fully and find themselves unable to care for them. Many decide on the breed for their looks and mythos in pop culture, and purchase pups from backyard breeders or puppy mills who do not have breeder-return contracts that responsible breeders will, designed to keep the breed out of shelters.[51]

In Russia

Sled dogs that were bred and kept by the Chukchi tribes of Siberia were thought to have gone extinct, but Benedict Allen, writing for Geographical magazine in 2006 after visiting the region, reported their survival. His description of the breeding practiced by the Chukchi mentions selection for obedience, endurance, amiable disposition, and sizing that enabled families to support them without undue difficulty.[52]

Aboriginal sled dogs are still bred by some villages in Chukotka, and are even considered as a separate breed, the Chukotka sled dog. It is not recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, but it is recognised by the Russian Kynological Federation. The culture of breeding and using sled dogs in Chukotka is nowadays limited to a few coastal settlements.

Unlike its relative, the modern Siberian husky, the Chukotka sled dog was not bred for its appearance, but for its strength. It is little-known outside Chukotka in Russia.


Huskies were extensively used as sled dogs by the British Antarctic Survey in Antarctica between 1945 and 1994. A bronze monument to all of BAS's dog teams sits outside its Cambridge headquarters.[citation needed]

In popular culture

  • A bronze statue of Balto that has been displayed in New York City’s Central Park since 1925 is one of the park's enduringly popular features.[53][54]
  • The television series Game of Thrones spurred a huge uptick in demand for Siberian Huskies as pets, followed by a steep increase of their numbers at public shelters. Even though the animal actors were not Siberian Huskies, people were acquiring Siberian Huskies because they looked similar to the fictional direwolf characters depicted in the show.[55] Two of the show's stars pleaded with the public to stop acquiring the dogs without first researching the breed.[56]
  • Characters in film and television: The film Eight Below features six Siberian Huskies whose names are Max, Maya, Truman, Old Jack, Dewey and Shorty. In the horror television series Z Nation, a character adopts a Siberian Husky after its owner freezes to death outside his base, and the other dog turned into a zombie. The T.V. show Parks and Recreation uses a Siberian Husky as "spirit dog" for April Ludgate.
  • In the 2008 Disney film Snow Buddies, a black and white blue-eyed male Siberian Husky puppy named Shasta (voiced by Dylan Sprouse) is the protagonist.
  • The animated series Road Rovers features Exile, a Siberian Husky; the show Krypto the Superdog features Tusky Husky.
  • Everest in the animated series PAW Patrol is a Siberian Husky. Another such character from this series is Gasket from the Ruff-Ruff Pack.
  • Several purebred Siberian Huskies portrayed Diefenbaker, the "half-wolf" companion to RCMP Constable Benton Fraser, in the CBS/Alliance Atlantis TV series Due South.[57]
  • Siberian Huskies are the mascots of the athletic teams of several schools and colleges, including St. Cloud State University (St. Cloud State Huskies, Blizzard), Northern Illinois University (Northern Illinois Huskies, Victor),[58] the University of Connecticut (Connecticut Huskies, Jonathan), Northeastern University (Northeastern Huskies, Paws), the Michigan Technological University (Michigan Tech Huskies, Blizzard), University of Washington (Washington Huskies, Harry), Houston Baptist University (Houston Baptist Huskies, Kiza the Husky), and Saint Mary's University (Saint Mary's Huskies).

Convenient and Economical

One of the best advantage of having an Arctic breed, the husky as a pet is that they are originally bred to perform on a cold weather with minimal food in mind.

While the Siberian husky requires less food, it is important to consider to give them all the food they can have with the proper nutritional value for them to be healthy and lively.

Independent and Free-Spirited

Sometimes an overly attached dog is annoying to have especially if you want some space for yourself.

Cons of Owning a Siberian Husky

Masters of Escape

The Siberian huskies are masters of escape

This usually happens if you leave your husky outside to play and they want to play and explore more further than your house.

A Siberian husky will find its way out, even if you keep them in their dog cages.

Strong Predatory Drive

Remember when i said to supervise your husky when play with other pets? This is because the Siberian husky has a strong predatory drive.

Some huskies have been reportedly killed other pets within the house. This is because of their instincts to hunt and their predatory drive.

In the wild, undomesticated Siberian huskies hunt small animals in order to survive.


While the Siberian husky has a lot of stamina that let them play and stay active all the time, this can be a disadvantage to some people especially if that person doesn’t want to go outside a lot and exercise.

A husky does not require a lot of space inside the house but they do need their daily walks and exercise which can be a let down to some people.

Heavy Shedding

Siberian huskies shed a lot of furs per year. They shed twice a year usually before summer and before winter. If cleaning shed furs is not your thing, then owning a Siberian husky is a big no for you.


Siberian huskies doesn’t bark a lot like other dogs, instead they howl.

Their howls can be fun to listen to but if you live in a place with a lot of neighbors then it is a big disadvantage for you.

You might get some noise complaints from your neighbors because of your dog’s howling.

Despite all these pros and cons, we think that Siberian huskies are nothing but adorable. Share you thoughts on these lovely creatures, too!

Siberian Husky Mixes: 20 Different Beautiful Cross Breeds

Siberian Huskies have enchanted people for generations with their piercing stare, beautiful coat and devoted personalities. These alluring qualities have made them a popular choice for designer breeders who in the last 20 years have started mixing breeds in pursuit of the perfect dog. That’s led to the Siberian Husky mix becoming one of the top designer dog parent breeds in the United States.

While the Siberian Husky is rather energetic and can be destructive if left to their own devices, that hasn’t stopped people from looking at different ways to introduce this breed and mix it with others.  Creating a designer dog can often help mitigate potentially harmful health defects that may happen commonly in purebred dogs.

In this article, we are going to discuss 20 of our favorite Siberian Husky crossbreeds that have resulted from this practice. While not all of these dogs on this list are suitable for everyone, but each breed has something unique to offer in both appearance and temperament. Let’s get into it!


Siberian Husky Mixes

Siberian Huskies are some of the most popular dogs across the United States.  Their striking eyes and eager to please attitudes are attractive to many potential dog owners.  Because of that, they are prime pups for becoming part of the designer dog movement that’s happening across the US and other countries.

When it comes to finding a Husky mix, we always recommend that you adopt before you shop.  There are many pups just like the Husky Crossbreeds below that could be at a shelter waiting for you to come and give them a permanent furever home today!  Let’s look at 20 of the most common Husky mixes you’ll see.


Husky Corgi Mix Breed Dog in Grass

Breeds: Siberian Husky and Corgi

Close your eyes and picture a Siberian Husky with a Corgi body. Can’t stop smiling? Well, you’re in luck. This is not just in your imagination – this is a Horgi! An adorable medium-sized pup with little legs and a big heart! Sometimes known as a Corgsky or a Siborgi, whatever name you choose, this pup is an adaptable alternative for those who love Huskies’ beautiful coat and striking eyes but are concerned with their large size. On average, a Horgi will weigh between 20 to 50 pounds.

Corgis have a background in herding and Huskies are notorious sledding dogs, their mix will be equally as energetic and alert. This hybrid is described as having a generally positive disposition, natural devotion to their owners and above-average intelligence. With early socialization and proper training, the Horgi does well with children and is welcoming to visitors, making this adorable mix an ideal family companion.


Huskita Mixed Breed Dog

Breeds: Siberian Husky and Akita

If you have room for a giant breed in your life, the faithful Huskita could be a great option. A mix between a Siberian Husky and an Akita, this hybrid weighs between 70 and 120 pounds! They have strong and independent tendencies, which at times can read as distant or detached. Don’t be discouraged, despite their independence, this breed is intensely devoted to their family.  This is one of the most sought after Akita mixes that you’ll find as well.

A natural hunter like the Husky and protective like the Akita, the Huskita is recommended for experienced owners who can take on the role of a pack leader and provide firm and consistent training. A well-adjusted Huskita will be energetic and playful, as well as adoring to their family. While not considered to be an aggressive breed, they can function as excellent watchdogs and should be socialized properly to correctly distinguish between friendly visitors and possible intruders.

Gerberian Shepsky

Siberian Husky German Shepherd Mix

Breeds: Siberian Husky and German Shepherd

This gorgeous mix is said to have a powerful wolf-like appearance and a courageous spirit. A combination of a Husky and a German Shepherd, this hybrid goes by many names, including Siberian Shepherd, Husky Shepherd and our favorite, the Gerberian Shepsky. Their lean, muscular physical and striking appearance is sure to turn heads wherever they go.

Both parent breeds are hard-working and clever and therefore a Gerberian Shepsky will flourish in an environment where they are provided with extensive mental and physical stimulation. They have an innate drive to be an alpha with humans and animals alike. This means they should be monitored around other dogs and require an owner who commands their respect. If this healthy dynamic is achieved, the Gerberian Shepsky will prove to be a committed and doting companion.


Husky Boxer Mix

Breeds: Siberian Husky and Boxer

A mix between a Boxer and a Siberian Husky will produce a large and active pup who can be quite a handful. They can exhibit a strong prey drive and stubbornness. Because of this, a Boxsky is not recommended for novice dog owners with little training experience. They require a confident leader and consistent coaching to curb their strong-headed nature.  Most boxer cross breeds need a strong hand when training.

The Boxsky generally weighs up to 75 pounds and is better suited for a house with a large fenced yard. While they can be very sweet, this hybrid also has high exercise demands and needs plenty of room to roam. Placed with a devoted family who is willing to properly exercise, train and socialize this breed, they are a wonderfully committed and loving companion.


Ausky Mix

Breeds: Siberian Husky and Australian Cattle Dog

The independent Ausky is a hybrid produced by breeding a Siberian Husky and Australian Cattle Dog. This is a vocal pup who will howl, sing, whine and even talk if encouraged. While this can be very entertaining, you should definitely consider the implications of encouraging this type of behavior as it can be hard to suppress once it becomes a habit. Because they are not considered a quiet breed and have intense exercise requirements, this pup is not suited for apartment living.

The Ausky is an agile athlete that is very strong and active. A skilled handler is recommended for this breed. They are considered to be a medium-sized canine with a double coat that can resemble either parent. Any potential Ausky adopter should take into consideration their seemingly endless endurance and inquisitive nature and be willing to provide the appropriate amount of stimulation for this bright breed.



Breeds: Siberian Husky and Golden Retriever

The Goberian is a beautiful and popular designer breed created by mixing the sociable Golden Retriever with the handsome Siberian Husky. This capable mix can excel in many different activities including, but not limited to, agility training, obedience competitions, search and rescue, service jobs and sledding.

In addition to their impressive physical abilities, the Goberian has many desirable personality traits as well! This breed is attentive, dutiful, affectionate, joyous and lively. They are very bright and eager to please, making them very trainable. This breed is a medium-to-large sized pup and can weigh anywhere from 35 to 80 pounds. Any prospective adopter should prepare for their Goberian to be on the larger end of that scale. They will have a double, weather-resistant coat, making them adaptable to various climates. The Goberian makes an ideal pet for many different families, including those with children!



Breeds: Husky and Pomeranian

You may remember when the Pomsky took the internet by storm in 2011 after a viral BuzzFeed article featured pictures of Finnish Lapphund puppies and incorrectly declared them Pomskies. Despite these misleading images, the Pomsky was suddenly in high-demand and Designer Dog breeders were happy to oblige! However, real-life Pomskys are not nearly as small as the images circulating the internet suggest. On average, a fully matured Pomsky will weigh between 20 and 30 pounds.

This mix is a playful and amicable breed that enjoys being the center of attention. Pomeranians can be considered a stubborn breed, so Pomskies require consistent and firm training. They can be prone to barking, which may prove problematic in an apartment setting. Overall, this is a lively and adorable breed who, like the Corgsky, can be an excellent alternative to those seeking the Husky aesthetic without the size.



Breeds: Husky and Mastiff

This Husky Mastiff mix is a very large and very energetic breed, making them an option only for owners who have the time and space to accommodate this pup’s needs. The Muskiff weighs between 60 to 110 pounds and, like many Mastiff mixes, they are gentle giants. They can be somewhat shy and reserved around strangers and protective of their family.

This mix is not suited for novice owners due to their size, strength, and stubbornness. If they don’t have an owner who sets clear boundaries and establishes themselves as the leader, the Muskiff is happy to take on the role of alpha and will become increasingly difficult to control. A well-cared-for Muskiff is wonderfully doting on children and an excellent adventure partner.

Siberian Retriever

Lab Husky

Breeds: Siberian Husky and Labrador Retriever

The Siberian Retriever is a mix between two widely popular breeds: the Labrador Retriever and the Siberian Husky. In general, this hybrid is large in stature and can favor either a Lab or a Husky in their appearance. The Huskador is an ideal family pet who is recognized for their friendly and loving disposition and their obedience and trainability. All of which makes them a great option for families with children and first-time owners.

The Siberian Retriever does best in an active family that is around often as they can suffer from separation anxiety and can develop bad habits like excessive barking and destructive behaviors if left alone and bored for too long. Consistent training is recommended for this breed to maintain proper manners. This breed scores high points in canine jobs including military service, search and rescue, and service animal duties.



Breeds: Siberian Husky and Poodle

Poodles are a popular breed to mix, so of course, there is a Siberian Husky Poodle mix! With an adorable name like the Siberpoo, it should come as no surprise that this mix is lively, spirited and a popular designer breed choice. They bond very closely with their families and it is important to socialize them so they do not become too distrusting of those outside their “pack.” This breed should not be left unsupervised with young children as they can, in rare cases, exhibit aggressive tendencies and can be quite rambunctious.

A properly trained, well-adjusted Siberpoo will be sweet, affectionate and playful. This mix will likely weigh between 45 to 60 pounds and have a double coat that can favor either parent. They are not a low maintenance breed, with regular grooming requirements and demanding exercise needs. This should be considered when thinking of adopting a Siberpoo.



Breeds: Husky and American Pitbull Terrier

This medium-to-large-sized pup is a beautiful mix between two powerful breeds: the Husky and the American Pitbull Terrier. While Pitskys usually have a good-natured and amiable disposition, they require lots of socialization to ensure these positive attributes outweigh their more protective and aggressive tendencies. They weigh in at around 35 to 65 pounds and have an impressive, muscular stature which some may find intimidating.

Pitskys require a confident and attentive owner who will make them a part of the family and give them plenty of stimulation. They may be stubborn, so training should be a consistent part of any Pitsky owner’s routine. This hybrid does particularly well with children but should be monitored when introducing them to other dogs. In the right environment, a Pitsky can make a wonderful addition to your family.



Breeds: Siberian Husky and American Eskimo

The family-friendly Huskimo is a mix between the Siberian Husky and American Eskimo. This breed is both playful and docile, making them an ideal choice for families with children. However, they require a commitment to daily exercise and may struggle in a family that is not naturally active. They can also be difficult to train and require a firm leader with the patience and time to work through this breed’s willfulness.

This medium-sized pup is full of energy and ready to play at a moment’s notice. Raised with proper training and socialization, they are generally outgoing and welcoming to strangers. This mix is ideal for families with children that are willing to meet the Huskimo’s exercise demands and preferably have experience owning and training stubborn breeds.



Breeds: Siberian Husky and Rottweiler

The Rottsky, also known as a Huskweiler, is a unique mix between a Husky and a Rottweiler. This hybrid is extremely loyal, both an excellent watchdog and an affectionate companion. If properly socialized from a young age, the Rottsky does well around children and other animals. The Rottsky tends to look like a fleecy version of a Rottweiler. Many inherit heterochromia, where their eyes have different colors. It’s also common for Rottskies to sport the striking blue gaze of a Husky.

A Rottsky can vary quite widely in size, ranging anywhere from 50 to a whopping 100 pounds! This should be taken into consideration and you should be prepared for a pup of that size. If you’re looking for a dog to keep you active, the Rottsky can make a great running partner while they are also content cuddling up next to you. What more could you want?



Breeds: Siberian Husky and Chow Chow

Both the Siberian Husky and the Chow Chow descended from hunting dogs who served many functions for their owners including herding, sledding, and protection. Mix the two and you have a large-sized, hard-working and extremely bright Chusky. Although they can be quite independent, they do develop a deep connection and loyalty to their families. This energetic breed requires daily, extensive exercise and does not do well in apartments.

Socializing the Chusky is an important part of training this breed and helping to mitigate their stubborn tendencies. They have a strong prey drive and should not be left alone with other small pets or allowed to roam off-leash. Not always the most patient when handled incorrectly, they may not be the best choice for homes with little children. Both Chow Chows and Siberian Huskies can be overly protective and while this makes the Chusky an excellent guard dog, a responsible owner should teach them the difference between visitors and intruders to avoid negative reactions to your guests.



Breeds: Siberian Husky and Pug

Possibly one of the cutest names (and breeds!) on this list is the adorable Hugsky nicknamed simply “the Hug.” This is a mix between a Pug and a Husky which results in a dog with a distinctive muzzle, thanks to the squashed-faced Pug. Because the Pug is a small breed and the Husky is considered medium-to-large, the size of a Hugsy can vary widely. This breed will fall somewhere between 14 to 60 pounds and it’s nearly impossible to predict which end of that large spectrum each individual Hugsky will fall.

The Hugsky is an active breed with mischievous tendencies if left alone and bored. To avoid any unwanted behavior, a Hugsky should spend plenty of stimulating time outdoors exploring. However, if their muzzle has the exaggerated shortness of a Pug, care should be taken that they are not overexercised, as this can cause health concerns for breeds with squished faces. Be warned – they are also known to be Houdini-level escapists and extra precautions should be taken to ensure your Hugsky stays safely on your property. If they take after their Pug parent, a Hugsky can be silly and playful. However, no matter which breed they happen to favor, they are sure to be devoted and loving.



Breeds: Siberian Husky and Dachshund

The Dusky is a surprising mix between a Dachshund and a Siberian Husky. This oddly-paired hybrid is of medium stature with either floppy Dachshund ears or straight Husky ears. They also tend to inherit the short legs of a Dachshund, making this mix quite the interesting specimen, if not awkwardly adorable.

Dachshunds may be little, but they can exhibit aggressive tendencies. That coupled with Siberian Husky’s suspicion towards strangers makes socialization especially important for this mix. Introducing them to many different environments and people and forming a positive association with these experiences can help in training a friendly and calm Dusky. Even with a well-adjusted Dusky, we encourage caution and supervision around small children and animals.

Husky Inu

Husky Inu

Breeds: Siberian Husky and Shiba Inu

The Husky Inu can be described as having something in between a wolf (Husky) and a fox (Inu) appearance. This beautiful mix between a Husky and a Shiba Inu is sure to turn heads. While this breed is certainly a looker, they are not a mix we recommend for everyone, especially first-time pet owners with little training experience. They can be stubborn, love to dominate and have a high prey drive. The Husky Inu requires a firm and confident handler that they respect as their leader to provide consistent coaching.

Because the Shibu Inu is notoriously aloof and the Husky can also have an independent streak, one should not expect an overly affectionate or needy canine with the Husky Inu. However, this does not mean they should be ignored, as they can become sulky if they feel too isolated. This is a compact and athletic pup, weighing between 18 to 30 pounds. They thrive in colder climates and make great companions for those who love sledding and playing in the snow!

Siberian Pyrenees

Husky Pyrenees

Breeds: Siberian Husky and Great Pyrenees

The majestic Siberian Pyrenees is both a powerful working dog and a gentle companion. They are intelligent and active with a thick coat that may be all white or having husky markings. While they are very tender and love TLC, the Siberian Pyrenees is an active dog at heart and needs proper stimulation and exercise to live a happy and balanced life.

This breed, like many on this list, can exhibit willfulness which can make it difficult to train and handle them. Persistence with a respected leader will help break down this stubbornness and produce a well-mannered pup. Because of this and their somewhat rebellious spirit, we do not recommend the Siberian Pyrenees to people without prior canine experience.


Husky Malinois

Breeds: Siberian Husky and Belgian Malinois

The Belerian Malsky, The Hukinois, The Belusky… there are many names to choose from with this Siberian Husky and Belgian Malinois mix. It’s possible this hybrid was created to produce a pup that had the speed of the Belgian Malinois with the endurance of the Siberian Husky. If that’s the case, it was successful, making them excellent hunting and working dogs.

The Belusky will likely be a medium-sized canine with a compact and athletic frame and a short coat. They are known for their loyalty and intelligence, scoring them high points in trainability and function very successfully as guard dogs. These pups are extremely spirited and require at least one to two hours of vigorous activity a day, making them better suited for a home with a backyard where they can burn off some of this energy.

Buskton Terrier

Boston Terrier Husky

Breeds: Siberian Husky and Boston Terrier

The Buskton Terrier is one of the few breeds on this list that can be a great pick for novice dog owners due to their intelligence and agreeable disposition. Mixed with a Husky and a Boston Terrier, this pup will likely be a medium-sized dog that weighs between 20 to 40 pounds. They have low maintenance grooming requirements and moderate exercise requirements.

While the Buskton Terrier will get along well with the whole family, they do have a tendency to bond particularly closely with one person. They love to cuddle and just want to be near you! This mix is best suited to a family who is around enough to provide them with the attention and affection they crave. Left alone for too long, this pup is likely to become sullen and suffer from separation anxiety.

Final Thoughts

The Siberian Husky can certainly produce some incredible and beautiful mixes. This list only touches on a few Siberian Husky mixes, and we are sure there’s many more that we’ve probably missed!  If you have a Husky Mix you’d like us to include, make sure to drop us a line in the comments below!

Many times hybrids will bring in the best characteristics of both breeds and that is certainly the case for a lot of the choices on our list. If your interested in any of these Husky mixes, check with your local shelters! Your best friend might just be waiting for you to give them the forever home they deserve.

    Husky Mix Breeds – Complete Guide To The Top Husky Crosses

    husky mix breeds

    The Husky Dog is an extremely popular breed that is known for it’s days as a working dog in Alaska. Now a loyal companion to many, it is no wonder that this dog has been crossed with other popular dog breeds to create a range of different Husky Mix breeds.

    Below we will explore different Husky Mix breeds and the wonderful dogs that can be created by mating different breeds with the intelligent and hard-working Husky. Inheriting different temperaments and traits from their parents, often these dogs can feel like a lucky dip which is what makes them such fun pups to be around!

    With moderately high care needs and high activity levels, Husky Mix breeds can be a handful but can make a wonderful pet to those who understand them. Keep reading on to find out everything you need to about the most popular Husky crossbreeds.

    What is a Husky Dog?

    The Husky Dog, also known as the Siberian Husky, was first bred by the Chukchi people in Northern Asia and was trained to pull sleds in the harsh climates. They were first introduced to America when the Chukchi people brought the Husky to Alaska in the early 1900s so they could participate in Alaskan sled races.

    When the Siberian Husky won these races, everyone wanted one and by 1925 they had become a worldwide sensation. These dogs even helped to prevent a diphtheria outbreak in Nome by relaying sled teams to transport medicine.

    Once recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1930, the Husky Dog became very popular in the United States as a companion dog.

    Despite their athletic build and stoic stance, the Husky is a fun loving dog who is known for being very silly! These dogs love people and love to play, making them an excellent family member and a great addition to many households.

    The Husky does have relatively high care needs and need lots of food and exercise. They also require training and socialization from a young age as they can be known to have a stubborn streak, and they shed a lot, too!

    Thanks to their high care needs, they are not often recommended as pets for first time owners. However, every Husky Mix is different. Lets take a look at the most popular Husky Mixes.


    Husky Mix Breeds



    Pitsky (Husky and Pitbull Terrier)

    The Pitsky is a cross between an American Pitbull Terrier and a Siberian Husky. The Pitsky is known to be a playful and affectionate dog that needs to be kept active. They can be stubborn which can make them difficult to train, but with the right family they can also make a perfect pet.

    Normally, the Pitsky ranges in size between 30-70 lbs in weight and between 19-21” in height. Males are normally larger than females. Their ears can be short and pointy or long and floppy and it will vary based on their coat type. They normally have blue eyes thanks to their Husky parent.

    Pitskies love to be outside exercising and will happily accompany you hiking or running. They are not a very relaxed dog and don’t like to sat at home doing nothing. They can be known to howl sometimes too, which can be the result of separation anxiety. Make sure these pups are in a household with lots of action, and they’ll be your best friend forever!


    Gerberian Shepsky (Husky and German Shepherd)

    The Gerberian Shepsky crosses two very popular breeds of dog. These dogs are very intelligent and quick learners, but this means that their owner needs to be one step ahead of them! For this reason, the German Shepherd Mix is suited to experienced owners who understand their needs.

    Both of the parent breeds of the German Shepherd Husky Mix are very athletic and so these dogs have high exercise needs. They are also need mental stimulation to keep them occupied, which can include games and puzzles. They will love to play outside with you and keep themselves entertained in the yard. However, make sure that the yard is secure as these dogs are known to escape!

    This crossbreed can make a wonderful family pet and is extremely loyal. They can do well in families with older children, although when socialized with younger children can grow up happily with them too.

    The German Shepherd Husky Mix can take after their German Shepherd parent or their Husky parent in terms of appearance. Sometimes it is a bit of a lucky dip and you never know what these pups may actually look like. They can come in a range of colors, including the German Shepherd’s classic black and tan, yet they may also have the Husky’s blue eyes!


    Cusky (Husky and Corgi)

    The Cusky is the result of breeding a Husky and a Corgi together. These cute dogs normally inherit a mixture of their parents temperaments, meaning you get the feistiness of the Corgi with the cheeky and friendliness of a Husky.

    The Corgi is historically a herding dog and therefore has a strong instinct which can result in a lot of barking and sometimes stubborness! It is for this reason that the Cusky doesn’t like to be left alone for long periods of time and can experience separation anxiety. The Corgi’s stubborn streak combined with the stubborn streak of the Husky certainly means the Cusky is strong willed and will need an owner than can understand this trait.

    Thanks to the herding nature of the Corgi, the Cusky is not recommended in a home with young children. These dogs can actually end up herding them and possible hurting them without meaning to.

    The Corgi Husky Mix is a very active dog that needs to be kept exercised. They will do well in households with a large yard, but you will need to make sure this yard is fenced as they are also great escape artists! An active family where they can join in all the fun and become the perfect exercise buddy is best for the Cusky breed.


    Rottsky (Husky and Rottweiler)

    The Rottsky, a cross between a Husky and a Rottweiler, is a dog built for endurance! With their muscular build and stamina, the Rottweiler lends their traits to the Rottsky to create a dog with a wonderful working ethic and durability.

    Extremely strong and powerful, the Rottsky can make an excellent guard dog. Their strength means they are not the pet for those with young children in the home as they can end up hurting them without meaning to, but they can make a good family pet or watchdog for those with older children.

    The Rottsky has very high exercise needs and you must be willing to match them before deciding to purchase one of these dogs. They can make an excellent hiking and running buddy, but they also need a large space to run around in at home. If this mixed breed doesn’t get the physical and mental stimulation that they need then they will certainly let you know through barking or destroying the house!

    Rottskies can be known to chase other smaller animals in the home and so you may want to think about having them as an only-pet. Of course, they can be trained and socialized, but they also often have a stubborn nature which means this can be difficult and may take some time.


    Alusky (Husky and Alaskan Malamute)

    The Alusky is the combination of a Husky and an Alaskan Malamute. With both parent breeds renowned sled dogs in the Arctic, the Alusky is yet another Siberian Husky Mix that is a very active breed. While they don’t pull sleds as companion dogs, they do make excellent running and hiking partners for their owners (although they certainly do better in cooler climates than hot ones!).

    Alusky dogs are very intelligent and can therefore be trained and learn things easily. However, this isn’t always easy! The Alusky has a stubborn streak too, and so you must be patient and persevere when it comes to this dog until they really understand what you want them to do.

    These pups are extremely playful and get on with just about everyone they meet. This means they make terrible watchdogs and guard dogs, but can make wonderful family dogs! They don’t like to be left alone for long periods of time and would prefer to be by your side everyday. If they are left alone for too long or feel like they aren’t getting enough attention, then they will begin to exhibit destructive behaviors.

    One thing to note with the Alusky is that they have a very high prey drive. You should always make sure you keep them on a leash when you are out in public, otherwise you might find them running off and chasing something.


    Pomsky (Husky and Pomeranian)

    The Pomsky is the result of breeding a Husky and a Pomeranian together, and the result is really cute! These fluffy little dogs look just like mini Huskies and are becoming increasingly popular as designer dogs.

    Thanks to their small size, the Pomsky makes an excellent lapdog and companion to many. Their Pomeranian nature means that they love to curl up on the couch with their owners and are an extremely affectionate breed. They don’t need a large space to live in and will happily live in small apartments or in cities.

    That being said, they still like to exercise! They will need at least one walk a day but will also like to play games with you. The Pomsky can make a great family dog and will like to join in the fun, but will need to be socialized properly with young children and other animals. Training these dogs is also very important thanks to their often stubborn nature. You will need to be prepared to persevere with training, otherwise they can become yappy dogs!

    The Pomsky has quite high grooming needs thanks to their coat. Their coat is a thick double coat and they shed a lot, so will not be the pet for you if you have allergies. They can come in a range of colors, including grey and white, brown or reddish brown, blue and pure white.


    Hug (Husky and Pug)

    The Hug dog is a cross between a Husky and a Pug! A relatively rare breed, the aim when creating this dog was to combine the the loyalty of the Pug with the intelligence of the Husky.

    Thanks to the difference in size between the two parent breeds, it can be quite difficult to predict what the Hug will look like. They may be larger like the Husky, or smaller like the Pug. Normally these dogs range in size between 10 to 23 inches in height and between 14 to 60 lbs in weight. Either way, it is very important that the Husky is the mother when breeding due to the complications when breeding two dogs of different sizes.

    Both the Husky and the Pug are very loyal and devoted to their owners, so we can always predict that the Hug will have these traits. Unfortunately, they are also very stubborn dogs and so training can be difficult and will require a lot of patience from you.

    The Hug can suffer form separation anxiety thanks to their love for their owners and, when they are not kept occupied, can begin to show signs of disruptive behavior such as excessive barking, destruction and defecation in the home.

    Fortunately, the Hug is one Husky Mix that doesn’t need quite as much exercise. This is because they are smaller and can often inherit the flat-face of the Pug, making them a brachycephalic breed. This means they can have trouble breathing, especially when they are overexercised while exercising. You should always ensure you exercise them at night if you live in a warmer climate and make sure they do not overexert themselves.


    Goberian (Husky and Golden Retriever)

    The Goberian, also simply known as the Golden Retriever Husky Mix, is the result of crossing a Golden Retriever with a Siberian Husky. The Goberian is a friendly, loving and outgoing dog that loves to be around people.

    This pup took the most desirable traits from both parents and is still affectionate and family orientated like the Golden Retriever, but is also very outgoing and playful like the Husky. These dogs have a very athletic build and are considered a medium to large dog breed. They can weigh anywhere between 45 lbs to 80 lbs and stand between 22 to 24 inches high.

    Due to the fact that they are so active, they love to be around people and will thrive in an environment where they can exercise a lot. They make great playmates for children, but also love to spend time cuddling with their owners.

    Unfortunately, they can be prone to separation anxiety and do not like to be left alone. This is something to keep in mind if you are out for hours at a time. The Husky is quite a protective breed and often the Goberian can inherit this. They are not aggressive at all, but will feel they have dominance over strangers. Training and socialization is important for this breed.


    Beaski (Husky and Beagle)

    When we combine the Siberian Husky and the Beagle we get the Beaski, a wonderful affectionate dog that makes one of the best family pets! While they inherit her intelligence and the activity levels of the Husky, they also inherit the relaxed and laid-back nature of the Beagle which means they have a loving temperament and are happy to just go with the flow.

    Their intelligence and desire to please their owners means that the Beaski is very easy to train and has less care needs than many of the dogs on this list. They get on well with children and other animals when they are socialized properly, which should be done at a young age.

    With lots of energy, the Beaski will enjoy being outside and joining in with whatever the family is doing. They need around 60 to 90 minutes of exercise every day otherwise they can begin to exhibit destructive behaviors. While they are cuddly and affectionate, they can also be trained to be excellent guard dogs and watchdogs for the family home and like to be given a job to do.



    With so many wonderful Husky Mix breeds out there, you will be sure to find one that suits your family and home! Whether you’re looking for a small dog with lots of personality like the Cusky, a cute and cuddly lapdog like the Pomsky, or a loyal family pet like the Gerberian Shepsky, these dogs have a range of different traits and personalities that you can choose. When buying, always make sure you buy from a reputable breeder so your Husky Mix dog is less likely to inherit health problems, and do your research before buying so can be sure to meet all the needs of these fantastic dogs.
