A lot can be said about Huskies and their unique personality that only Husky owners will be privy to. Smart, loyal, and personable, yet highly mischievous and stubborn, a Husky can fill your home with laughter and joy provided that you take the time to develop a bond with such a unique and amazing creature.
Quite a joy to look at, these handsome dogs have piercing blue eyes, a beautiful coat of hair, and a strong physique that recommends them for any would-be owner who lives an active lifestyle. In short, these are the type of dogs that experienced dog owners usually get, the type of dogs who tend to drain their owners of every bit of love and compassion they are willing to share.

Dalmatian Husky – Dalmatian Husky Mix
Seen as a somewhat underrated Husky mix, the Dalmatian Husky breed is quickly growing in popularity around the world on account of how active and energetic these dogs can be. Even though they need an extra bit of training due to their restless nature, they make very good companions and trusty playmates all things considered.
These interesting dogs are also very good with children, which kind of explains why these dogs are so sought-after by seasoned dog owners everywhere. Very smart and intuitive, they play nice with not only children of all ages but other pets as well.
It also needs to be said that the Dalmatian Husky has a thick double coat of hair that requires a fair bit of grooming on a regular basis. As for the color, you can safely assume that it sometimes resembles the dalmatian spots we are all familiar with while other times it takes a more gray pattern as per the Husky genes.
Huskimo – American Eskimo Dog Husky Mix
You get a Huskimo by mixing a Siberian Husky with an American Eskimo Dog. The result is a loyal, playful, and reasonably obedient dog that tends to get along with everyone, including other dogs and smaller animals that people sometimes keep as pets.
Although they need to be thoroughly socialized, Huskimos tend to do well with children and strangely enough, also with well-meaning strangers. Yes, the Huskimo seems to possess a rare capacity to tell what a person’s intentions are, which can only be said about a handful of reputable guard dog breeds.
Even though the Huskimo isn’t a guard dog per se, it does boast many characteristics we commonly find in guard dogs, including the desire to protect its pack. Speaking of which, these dogs need to understand the role they play in your family and who are the dominant family members they should obey first and foremost.
Siberian Cocker – Cocker Spaniel Husky Mix
It does seem that the Siberian Husky mixes well with other breeds and so is the case with the Siberian Cocker, which is a direct result of mixing a Cocker Spaniel with a Husky. Agile and energetic, these dogs tend to be delightful to look at and quite friendly in manners.
Interestingly enough, these dogs tend to vary quite a lot in size, in the sense that some pups can grow up to 13 inches or so while others can grow as tall as 20 inches or more. There is, unfortunately, no way of telling how tall the pup will grow unless you have a lot of information about its parents.
Despite the size issue, these dogs tend to be fit and muscular when given proper exercise, which is paramount for any Husky mix. That said, the Siberian Cocker tends to showcase more moderate energy levels than both the Cocker Spaniel and the Husky.
Huskita – Akita Inu Husky Mix
With a history that can be traced back hundreds of years for both of the parent breeds, the Huskita is a mix that surprisingly never occurred naturally. Combined, however, these two noble breeds create a truly amazing dog – the Huskita.
The Huskita takes its energy from the Husky and combines it with the impressive loyalty of the Akita. This creates a very reliable and dependable dog that along with always being eager to please, is also very pretty to look at.
Speaking of which, it should be said that this is a very clean dog that resents getting itself dirty for any reason. This is great considering how smooth the coat of such a dog can be, a fact that also minimizes grooming requirements.
Hug – Pug Husky Mix
This affectionate, friendly, and playful Husky mix loves to play around with the family on account of its high energy reserves. This is the type of dog who would spend the whole day simply running and goofing around if it has the opportunity.
Despite their high-energy drive, these dogs are fairly low-maintenance when compared to the traditional Husky due to their Pug heritage. They also require less grooming than a regular Husky for pretty much the same reasons.
Now, you should also be aware that these dogs do very well in confined spaces like apartments and houses with very little room to roam. Because of their brimming energy, however, you have to remember to get them to exercise on a daily basis.
Aussie Siberian – Australian Shepherd Husky Mix
Who knew that mixing an Australian Shepherd with a Husky could result in such a spectacular dog? You see, the Aussie Siberian not only retains all the qualities of the parent breeds but also adds a few unique characteristics to the mix.
For starters, this dog packs some serious energy, so much in fact that it may exhaust any owner who’s not ready for it. With these dogs, it is advised that you take the time to play with them thoroughly at least once during the day and to incorporate a lot of running into the process.
Given their high energy, these dogs don’t do well in apartments. So if you’re thinking that the Aussie Siberian would somehow be fit for urban living on account of its looks alone, then maybe you should reconsider.
Beaski – Beagle Husky Mix
Unlike the Husky who can be a little strong-headed and stubborn, the Beagle is known for its easygoing nature, which is the part that makes the Beaski such an interesting mix. You see, the Beaski is both intelligent and laid-back, traits that make it a very good pet to have.
One thing to mention about the Beaski is how affectionate this dog can be. The mixture of two affectionate breeds can only bring forth an equally affectionate dog, if not even more so. So if you’re planning to get a Beaski, be prepared to show it attention as often as you possibly can.
Having said that, it needs to be said that these dogs need to be socialized from an early age, especially around children. Due to their playful nature, they may sometimes engage in rough play, which needless to say, can cause accidental harm to any small children or pets you might have.
Rottsky – Rottweiler Husky Mix
The Rottweiler Terrier Husky Mix is one that adds a little muscle to the Husky gene while maintaining its intuition and intelligence. Inquisitive by nature, these dogs possess both the durability and stamina of the Rottweiler and combine it with the pleasantness of a Husky.
Seeing how both of the parent breeds are known for their physical prowess, you can expect the Rottsky to be a fairly strong and powerful dog. This means that you must take early measures to socialize the dog in order to avoid any potential mishaps later on.
That said, bear in mind that the Rottsky’s behavior tends to match that of its owners and that you have to be on your best behavior around them. This, of course, if you want to raise a well-mannered dog that you can depend on as they grow.
Pitsky – Pitbull Terrier Husky Mix
This strange mixture of Pittbull Terrier and Husky genes produces a very playful and affectionate pooch. Despite the negative connotations associated with the Pitbull Terrier, the Husky gene seems to placate their anxious tendencies by making the dog more easygoing and submissive.
Then again, this is also unusual to some extent, because the Husky is known for being stubborn and headstrong. It seems that the mix brings forth the best personality traits of both the Pitbull and Husky genes, making the dog very pleasant to be around.
Being the dogs that they are, Pitsky pups require a lot of activity and exercise on a daily basis. Failing to properly exercise them as pups might result in the dogs becoming distant and apathetic later on, which is the last thing you want from such a gorgeous dog.
Horgi – Corgi Husky Mix
This is yet another unusual mix to come to light in recent years, one that combines the Husky genes with that of a Corgi. While the Corgi side of the mixture adds a cuteness element to the mix, the Husky part brings a wolf-like look and greater intelligence.
I should point out that most Horgies inherit the exotic colored eyes of the Siberian Husky but in a much smaller package as the dog tend to take its other physical traits from the Corgi. Then again, it kind of makes the dog cuter when you think about it.
As you would expect, these dogs are energetic by nature and tend to have very lively personalities. That said, be prepared to do a fair bit of grooming to keep their coat in check because just like Huskies, these dogs shed quite a lot on a regular basis.
Alusky – Alaskan Malamute Husky Mix
Because both of the parent breeds have historically been used as sled dogs, the resulting Alusky is also a dog of great physical prowess and endurance. In this respect, you can expect an Alusky to be very physical and with a lot of energy to spend.
Very active dogs by nature, they generally prefer an active lifestyle to cuddling on a couch, even though they are very affectionate dogs if you give them the chance. For this reason, they make lousy apartment dogs on account of their constant need to roam.
Intelligence-wise, they are some of the smartest dogs out there, the type of dogs you can train to do almost anything provided you have the patience to teach them. We refer to patience in this context because both the Malamute and the Husky are well-known for their stubbornness.
Husky Jack – Jack Russell Terrier Husky Mix
By combining two of the most popular family dogs – the Husky and the Jack Russell, you get a somewhat smaller dog than a Husky, yet a bigger one than regular Jack Russells. The hybrid characteristics don’t stop there, you see, as the Husky Jack also boasts a unique coat of hair.
This coat can be a combination of red, sable, white, black, or grey, with no indication of a ‘standard’ coloring for this unique hybrid. In some cases, the pups are a combination of brown or cream, whereas others tend to be a bit darker and thus, more similar to the Jack Russell.
As for the personality, know that this energetic dog rarely if ever settles down unless prompted to do so. Brimming with energy and confidence, this lively dog needs a lot of training in order to behave itself and follow commands as a Jack Russell would. Then again, this is more of a family dog than either the Husky or the Jack Russell, so defini
Goberian – Golden Retriever Husky Mix
The Goberian came to be after combining two of the most popular dog breeds in the world – the Golden Retriever and the Husky. The result is a smart, gentle, and intelligent dog that takes great pleasure in pleasing its owners at all times.
Highly energetic on the side of its Husky heritage, the Goberian will accompany you in any physical activity no matter its intensity. At the same time, the dog showcases an impressive willingness to learn new things as long as you have the patience to train it properly.
Last but not least, it needs to be said that these dogs make wonderful pets and that they absolutely love hanging around children because they often match their energy levels. Fiercely loyal, these dogs are guaranteed to very understanding and affectionate with their family and with everyone who gives them the attention they crave.
