Top 30 Husky Mixes – Everything You Need to Know About these Loyal Dogs


Having grown up with a Siberian Husky, they have always held a special place in my heart. Since childhood, I have not had one because they are not the right breed for my lifestyle.

However, in today’s world of crossing various breeds in the hopes of promoting the best in both, it is an option I am reconsidering, which is why I pulled together a list of the best husky mixes.

I love many things about the husky, but I could do without their heavy coat and excessive shedding when they blow their coat. We are an active family, and I need a dog that can handle warmer temps.

Additionally, as a runner, I am always looking for breeds that would make good running partners without overheating after a mile. As I research husky mixes, I am hopeful I will be able to identify the ideal husky mix for our family.

Huskies are loyal, energetic, and intelligent dogs so there’s no question why people would be interested in a husky or husky mix.

History of Husky Mixes

Though it is unknown when Huskies were first bred with other breeds, we know that Huskies have a long history. Huskies were bred initially in northeastern Asia by the Chukchi people.

Back then, Huskies were both working and family dogs. The Chukchi were nomadic by necessity and required a way to move easier over harsh winter terrain, and the Husky was a perfect choice.

However, it wasn’t until the 1900s that Huskies were introduced to the rest of the world at sled races. And, in 1925, a team of sled dogs, huskies, delivered medicine to a town in Alaska to stop an outbreak of diphtheria, giving the breed its fame.

Benefits of Husky Mixes

One of the greatest benefits of getting a husky mix is helping reduce the population of dogs in shelters. There are plenty of husky mixes in shelters and rescue groups all over the country, and with the internet finding the dog you are looking for is very easy to do from the comfort of your home.

When you get a husky mix, you will be getting the physical and temperament traits from both breeds, allowing you to choose a dog that best meets your family’s needs.

Husky’s tend to be a bit on the independent and stubborn side. However, some of the husky mixes are more amiable, making them easier to train and a better match for new dog parents.

Husky mixes also have the advantage of having a reduced chance of some genetic conditions.

And in some cases, may have a longer lifespan than the two parent breeds. And many, though not all, have longer lifespans.

Finally, when you adopt a dog from a shelter or rescue, you won’t be paying high designer dog prices.

I am an advocate to adopt don’t shop when it comes to finding the perfect dog. And for dog parents who say they want a puppy; you can get a puppy from a shelter or rescue.

When I was ready to get another dog, I wanted a puppy. I was looking for a specific breed mix, and I was able to find the exact breed mix I was looking for through rescue, and it took me less than a day to find her.

1. Alusky = Alaskan Malamute + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-15 years
  • Average Height: 26-28 inches
  • Average Weight: 60-100 lbs.


Though these two breeds have much in common, there are few differences, especially when it comes to their size. Malamutes are the larger of the two and are better known for their strength and not for their speed or agility. Whereas, huskies are fast and agile but do not possess the brute force of their counterpart.

Additionally, Malamutes can be a bit more independent than huskies, making the Alusky a bit challenging for new dog parents. Aluskies require consistency to ensure their independent ways don’t get them into trouble.

And though these dogs are hearty, they do best with positive reinforcement and not punishment-based training. However, they do require a firm and consistent trainer.

The Aluskies double layer coat is dense, keeping them warm on cold winter days, but are not ideal for warmer climates and definitely are not dogs who would do well as running partners in warm or hot weather.

The Alusky hybrid does require regular physical and mental stimulation to keep them from destructive behaviors. Like all intelligent breeds, these dogs will find ways to keep themselves entertained if not given proper mental stimulation. Such as digging, which is one of their favorite things to do on warmer days to keep cool.

The average lifespan for an Alusky is 10-15 years. Which is similar to a husky, but a bit longer than a malamute. Aluskies do best on a higher protein diet for large breed dogs.

Though friendly and loyal, the Alusky is a robust, energetic hybrid and would be ideal for a household without children or with older kids. Additionally, the family who brings an Alusky home needs to be okay with shedding. These dogs have a ton of hair and shed more than other breeds plus, they blow their coat twice a year.

They are energetic dogs that require daily exercise that should be tailored to outdoor temperatures. Also, the Alusky would do well in competition obedience classes, dog sledding, and skijoring to keep their minds engaged.

2. American Bullsky = American Bulldog + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-12 years
  • Average Height: 20-24 inches
  • Average Weight: 50-115 lbs

American BullskyPin

The American Bullsky is loyal, loving, and energetic and makes for an excellent companion. Though this high energy dog loves spending time with you, they can also be a bit on the independent and strong-minded side. Because the American Bullsky is strong both physically and mentally they require structured, consistent, positive reinforcement training.

The American Bullsky does well with children but can be a bit on the protective side, so close supervision is recommended, especially when others are around. It is essential to ensure proper socialization when these dogs are pups to deter overprotectiveness, which is a natural trait in the American Bulldog.

However, these loyal and loving dogs are the perfect companion for a family looking for a hiking and camping partner. And, depending on their coat, could even make a great running companion.

Also, if you aren’t a fan of shedding or grooming, this is not the dog for you.

Due to their size a food for large breeds or even giant breeds for the bigger American Bullsky would provide optimal nutrition. Additionally, make sure the food is enhanced with chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health.

3. Aussie Siberian = Australian Shepherd + Husky

  • Life Span: 12-15 years
  • Average Height: 18-25 inches
  • Average Weight: 40-65 lbs

Aussie SiberianPin

Aussie Siberians are loyal, protective, and high energy. This Husky mix does best with active families who enjoy spending time outdoors, such as hiking and camping. Aussie Siberians are not couch potato dogs. Instead, they prefer to have wide-open spaces and stay on the move; they are not good apartment dogs.

Also, Aussie Siberians are good with kids and families, but their energy level requires extensive training. Aussie Siberians are intelligent dogs and maybe a bit on the independent side, requiring a more experienced handler or dedicated novice owner.

Because they have such a strong bond with their family, they are not the right dog for those who need to leave their dog home for long periods.

Because Aussie Siberians are high energy those who are particularly active, running and hiking on a regular basis, a high performance food would be best.

4. Samusky= Samoyed + Husky

  • Life Span: 12-15 years
  • Average Height: 20-24 inches
  • Average Weight: 40-60 lbs


The Samusky is a happy-go-lucky dog that has also been known to go by the name of Samsky. But whatever you want to call these loyal and intelligent dogs is fine with them as long as they are spending time with their family. Though they are faithful dogs, they enjoy being social with others and doing well with active families.

The Samusky is a loving and affectionate dog but does require quite a bit of grooming, especially when they blow their coat in the spring. Also, their long thick coat does not make for the best summer running companions.

The Samusky is a fun-loving dog and is easily trained, making them perfect for the novice pet parent. But due to their intelligence and energy level require regular exercise and mental stimulation. The Samuskies love of kids makes them ideal for families, even ones with young children.

The best food for the Samusky would be a well-balanced diet for medium sized dogs, though if they are particularly active in the winter you may consider switching to a high performance food.

5. Bernese Mountsky = Bernese Mountain Dog + Husky

  • Life Span: 12-15 years
  • Average Height: 26-27.5 inches
  • Average Weight: 48-88 lbs

Bernese Mountain HuskyPin

If you are searching for the ideal cold-weather dog, the Bernese Mountsky might be the perfect dog for you. They are happy pups that love their family and are very friendly, making them perfect for socially active people. For example, if you want a dog, you can bring to your child’s soccer game, then this dog is the right match, as they are happy to be around others.

Though they are friendly and generally easy to work with, they do have a bit of stubbornness in them that requires a wee bit of patience. However, when using positive reinforcement training, many of these dogs are eager to please. And due to their larger size, training is a must.

Also, Bernese Mountsky requires regular exercise and grooming. Bernese Mountsky has a moderate to high energy level and is satisfied with long daily walks.

Also, they do enjoy hiking in cooler temps, but due to their heavy coat won’t be joining you for a five-mile run on a hot day.

Due to the Bernese Mountsky size they will require food made for large breeds, ideally enhanced with chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health.

6. Blue Heesky = Blue Heeler + Husky

  • Life Span: 11-15 years
  • Average Height: 18-24 inches
  • Average Weight: 40-60 lbs

Blue HeeskyPin

The Blue Heeler also goes by the name of the Australian Cattle Dog. And the Blue Heeler Husky mix goes by Blue Heesky or Ausky. The Blue Heesky is an incredibly beautiful mix, but should not be judged on its appearance. Though fabulous dogs for the right family, they are not recommended for families with kids. Also, due to their extremely high energy level, they require 1-2 hours of exercise a day.

The Blue Heesky is a brilliant, loyal, and independent dog, and does best with an experienced owner who can provide firm and consistent training. Also, due to their high intelligence level, this Husky mix requires mental stimulation to stay out of trouble. The Blue Heesky is not the ideal dog for new dog parents. However, for those looking for a dog for agility or obedience competitions, this hybrid is perfect and would thrive with regular training.

Due to the Blue Heesky’s high energy level a high-performance food may be best to ensure proper fats and nutrition.

7. Bordsky = Border Collie + Husky

  • Life Span: 15-17 years
  • Average Height: 18-22 inches
  • Average Weight: 30-45 lbs


The Bordsky is a medium-sized dog full of energy and brains. They have a striking appearance that many find attractive, and their medium size is also appealing to many families. They are loyal and friendly and do well in playing with children.

However, these dogs will not want and sit on the couch and snuggle all day, though they will happily do so after a fun day of playing and activity. They are high energy dogs and require a lot of exercises to ensure they don’t become destructive. Because the Bordsky loves being with its family, left unattended for long periods is not ideal, especially if they have not been adequately exercised.

These exceptionally bright dogs are perfect for those looking to compete in agility, competition obedience, or advanced training. They are eager to please, so training a Bordsky is not only easy but fun too.

Because they are high energy dogs, those that are incredibly active would do best with a high-performance diet. However, if they are not running and hiking daily, food for medium-sized dogs is best.

8. Siberian Boston = Boston Terrier + Husky

  • Life Span: 11-16 years
  • Average Height: 15-20 inches
  • Average Weight: 20-40 lbs

Siberian BostonPin

The Siberian Boston has a shorter coat than Husky, making them a better fit for activities in warmer climates. They are happy, energetic, and affectionate dogs and are ideal for those looking for a small to medium-sized dog. Siberian Bostons do well with children as they love spending time with their family.

Also, because they don’t share the traditional husky coat, grooming a Siberian Boston is a lot easier. Weekly brushings are all they require to remove excess dead hair.

Though eager to please and intelligent, the Siberian Boston has a bit of stubbornness that pops up from time to time, though usually not often enough to become an issue, making them a good match for new dog parents. They are intelligent dogs and require mental stimulation; puzzle toys would be the ideal choice for your Siberian Boston.

The Siberian Boston requires daily exercise, but a daily 30-45-minute walk would suit them just fine. Also, because they have a moderate activity level, a high-quality diet would work best.

9. Boxsky = Boxer + Husky

  • Life Span: 12-15 years
  • Average Height: 30-35 inches
  • Average Weight: 35-75 lbs


The Boxsky is a high energy loyal companion. Though they are friendly, they can become overly protective of their family and home without the proper socialization and training. The Boxsky is an intelligent and enthusiastic dog, but their exuberance may be too much for small children. However, because they love being active and with their family, they are an excellent choice for older kids who want a dog to run and play with them.

Though these attractive dogs may be appealing to some, they are not ideal for first-time dog parents. They are smart, but also strong-willed and independent, requiring a lot of time and training. Additionally, the Boxsky requires around 90 minutes a day of exercise.

The Boxsky has a longer coat, so it requires more grooming than the boxer and is far from hypoallergenic. The good news is that their fur isn’t as long or thick as a Husky’s, allowing them to enjoy warmer weather.

The Boxsky would make the ideal camping and hiking companion, as they are hearty and energetic and love being with their human.

Due to their large size, a dog food suited for large active breeds is ideal.

10. Bullsky Mastiff = Bullmastiff + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-13 years
  • Average Height: 20-24 inches
  • Average Weight: 50-110 lbs

The Bullsky Mastiff is loyal, energetic, yet stubborn. Though they are quick to bond with their family and love both kids and adults alike, they require extensive training and do best with experienced dog parents. Those looking for a higher energy canine companion with the time to dedicate to their training and exercise will love sharing their life with a Bullsky.

Bullskies get their fierce but friendly nature from their parent breeds. And due to their size and energy level can be quite a handful without enough exercise and training. However, with proper socialization, these dogs are happy making friends in social settings.

Bullsky Mastiffs would excel with families who enjoy the outdoors and want to bring their dog along on outdoor adventures. Though they don’t make the best long-distance running companions, they are hearty and would do well on long walks, hikes, or even multiple walks a day.

Due to the Bullshies size, they require a large breed dog food to ensure proper nutrition and growth. Also, choosing a food enhanced with chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health would be beneficial.

11. Horgi = Corgi + Husky

Life Span: 12-15 years

Average Height: 13-15 inches

Average Weight: 20-25 lbs.  

Corgi Husky mixes go by a few different names Horgi, Corgsky, or Siborgi. They are considered small to medium-sized dogs. Horgis share the best physical traits of both parent breeds, resulting in a shorter dog with fluffy coats and round faces.

Horgis have a friendly and happy disposition and loves being around their adults and children. However, though these little fluff balls are affectionate with family, they can be standoffish or cautious when it comes to strangers, so they must be properly socialized when young to avoid unwanted behaviors.

Horgi’s small stature should in no way give you the opinion they need less exercise and mental stimulation than their larger parent breed. Horgi’s require about 30-60 minutes of mental and physical stimulation per day.

A small breed diet is best for a Horgi’s nutritional balance.

12. Dachsky = Dachshund + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-14 years
  • Average Height: 8-20 inches
  • Average Weight: 16-60 lbs

This mix tends to vary significantly in size, but they all have a very distinct look. Unfortunately, the Dachsky is not known for its friendly nature. Instead, these dogs can be slightly on the less amiable side with people they don’t know.

The reason for their less than genial personality comes from the huskies’ cautious nature and the Dachshund’s snappishness, resulting in an unhappy fur ball. However, these behavioral traits can be worked with and through proper training and exercise can be eliminated.

Dachskies can be good family dogs with proper socialization but would be better with older children. Dachskies love being wherever their family and are always up for some good snuggle time.

They enjoy walks, but due to their short legs are not made for running. But like with all dogs, they do require exercise, just not as much as the husky, making them a better fit for apartment life.

These are intelligent dogs and enjoy working on puzzle toys, but they can gain weight quickly, so ensuring they aren’t getting too many snacks is critical to maintaining a healthy weight. Because they can vary in size, it is essential to discuss with your vet the optimal diet for your Dachsky.

13. Dalmatsky = Dalmatian + Husky

  • Life Span: 11-15 years
  • Average Height: 16-22 inches
  • Average Weight: 45-60 lbs

The Dalmatsky is a medium to large size dog. They are friendly and energetic and require a significant amount of exercise and training. Because the Dalmatsky is so enthusiastic and is a bit on the strong-willed side, a patient trainer is best.

The Dalmatsky may make an excellent running partner if it inherits the shorter coat of the Dalmatian. Otherwise, an hour a day walk would work best for this dog. Without proper attention and exercise, the Dalmatsky can become very destructive and overweight. Also, this is not a dog to be left alone for long hours or be kept cooped up in an apartment.

Dalmatskies are also a very fun and happy dog that does best when with family. So, for those looking for a dog to bring that can be taken along to soccer games, hiking, and the local coffee shop, this is an excellent dog for you.

Depending on their coat, since it could be a balanced mix of the parents or lean to one side or the other, the Dalmatsky could require daily grooming. However, if it has a shorter coat, weekly grooming would be enough.

14. Dobersky = Doberman + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-14 years
  • Average Height: 22-26 inches
  • Average Weight: 48-75 lbs

The Dobersky is an intelligent, mildly protective, loyal companion. The Dobersky requires a lot of socialization when young to overcome their naturally suspicious nature with strangers. Though the Doberman was once a more aggressive breed, it is a trait that has been primarily bred out of the dog.

However, though they are not as aggressive as they once were, they are neither a docile canine. The Dobersky is very alert and makes for an excellent watchdog, alerting their humans of any perceived dangers.

Because of Dobersky’s high intelligence level, they can be easy to train, though they can be a bit on the independent side. Doberskies would excel at competition obedience training and scent work.

These dogs are also very energetic and require around 90 minutes a day of exercise and mental stimulation.

Because of their size and activity requirements, Doberskies are not recommended for apartment living and would do better with a fenced-in yard. Doberskies make excellent family dogs; however, due to their size can be a bit much for little kids, at least until they are trained.

Doberskies also do well in multi-pet households.

The Doberskies are medium to large dogs and require large breed dog food, especially when young, to avoid future health issues.

15. English Bullsky = English Bulldog + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-14 years
  • Average Height: 15-23 inches
  • Average Weight: 40-60 lbs

The English Bullsky is a happy, loyal, and loving companion making them ideal for families. They are an active dog and require daily exercise. However, due to their shorter muzzle and possible heavy coat it is vital you keep an eye on them in warm weather so they do not overheat.

The English Bullsky comes from intelligent breeds that are also known to be stubborn and independent at times. If allowed the English Bullsky can quickly become the ruler of a household, so proper training, patience, and consistency is required. Because these guys can be a bit of challenge, they may do best with an experienced dog parent.

The English Bullsky loves being with its family and can be docile and happy with its family however, they can be a bit protective so it is vital to ensure they are well-socialized both in and out of the house.

They are affectionate dogs that love to snuggle, unfortunately, if left alone too long or too often these dogs can show their anxiety of being away from the pack through destructive behaviors. To help curb some of that anxiety exercise your English Bullsky before leaving and offer some safe interactive toys to keep them occupied such as super chewer treat balls.

Also, depending on the size of your dog you may need to feed a diet for large breed dogs, but much of that will depend on the size of your pup. Unfortunately, when choosing a mix breed dog it isn’t always easy to know how big they will get.

16. French Bullsky = French Bulldog + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-14 years
  • Average Height: 12-22 inches
  • Average Weight: 35-45 lbs

These dogs can significantly vary in size due to the difference in the two parent breeds. However, they are most often medium-sized dogs with blue eyes. Though they are attractive dogs and frequently thought of as the perfect size, they require significant training, exercise, and mental stimulation.

Both breeds are intelligent and do best when they aren’t bored, and unfortunately, both parent breeds are known to be very destructive if left to their own devices. Although French Bullskies can be excellent companion dogs, they excel when challenged physically and mentally, such as in agility for fun and competition obedience.

Though the French Bullskies are very intelligent and eager to please, these dogs are not always easy to train since they can be both a bit stubborn and independent thanks to the original breeds. So, patience and consistency are a must. Daily exercise and interactive toys will also help keep your French Bullsky from getting itself into trouble.

French Bullskies are good family dogs and do well with children of all ages. And though they are friendly dogs with their family, French Bullskies can become protective and territorial, both traits come from the parent breeds, so socialization is a must.

Since they fall into a medium-size breed category, they do not require a special diet unless extremely active; then a high-performance food may work best.

17. Gerberian Shepsky = German Shepherd + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-14 years
  • Average Height: 20-25 inches
  • Average Weight: 45-88 lbs

These are beautiful dogs that are loyal, protective, active, and intelligent. Their strong desire to be with their family can lead to unwanted behavior, so ensuring your Gerberian Shepsky has more than adequate daily exercise is necessary.

The Gerberian Shepsky would also benefit from time at a trusted dog daycare, helping drain excess energy and interacting with other dogs and humans.

The Gerberian Shepsky is a good watchdog but can quickly become territorial and overly protective, manifesting in aggressive behavior. Because of their strong nature to protect and their size, it is critical they receive training and socialization from an early age.

Gerberian Shepskies are eager to please and very intelligent, and they are fun to train but require consistency and patience. Gerberian Shepsky would also excel at competitive sports or advanced training due to their need for mental stimulation.

Also, Gerberian Shepsky requires daily exercise and depending on their coat, and outdoor temperatures would make excellent running partners. They are loving with their family and are good with kids, but because of their size may do better with older children.

Unfortunately, both parent breeds are shedders, so daily grooming will help keep shedding to a minimum. Also, feeding a balanced diet, enhanced with chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health for large breeds would be beneficial.

18. Goberian = Golden Retriever + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-15 years
  • Average Height: 20-24 inches
  • Average Weight: 45-90 lbs

Goberians are happy, friendly dogs are energetic and intelligent, and best of all, love spending time with family. As you can guess Goberians are great with children.

Though half of their line can be stubborn, the other Golden half is often eager to please and very social, making them an easier dog to train. But just because Goberians are part Golden doesn’t mean that they don’t need training and socialization.

Remember, all dogs need training, socialization, and exercise, though some need more than others. In the case of the Goberian, they need a lot of exercise such as hiking, long walks, or jogging on colder days. Goberians are not a couch potato pup; they prefer to be out playing ball or exploring. Undesirable behaviors such as nuisance barking, destructive behavior, digging, and worse have been known to occur without providing a healthy outlet for their energy.

Also, because many Goberians are food motivated and intelligent using treat balls and other puzzle toys to help keep your dog’s mind engaged is essential.

However, caution needs to be taken when it comes to too much food since the Goberians can quickly gain weight with too many treats and not enough exercise.

Feeding a high-quality, balanced diet for large breed dogs is essential to keep you Goberian healthy.

19. Great Husky = Great Dane + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-12 years
  • Average Height: 21-35 inches
  • Average Weight: 90-130 lbs

The Great Husky is a giant loyal, brave, intelligent, and independent companion. These dogs are also alert and though social, make excellent watchdogs.

Due to the Great Husky’s size and instinct to guard, coming from the Great Dane side, it is vital to spend time socializing and training this dog.

Training a Great Husky is a challenging experience and requires a tremendous amount of patience. Huskies, by nature, are independent and are not always interested in training. And Great Danes are moody, and though sometimes interested in training, often they prefer to do their own thing. So, an experienced dog parent would do best with this mix.

Though the Husky is an active dog, the Great Dane is not, and when combining the two, you often have a low to medium energy dog. But that does not negate the fact that they still require daily exercise.

Often a half-hour walks a day is plenty for these giants. Unfortunately, these guys do no make for good running or agility partners.

Great Huskies are good family dogs and will do well with older children. However, due to their size and possible moodiness, they may not enjoy the company of toddlers.

When choosing food for the Great Husky, you must select one for large to giant breeds since they must receive proper nutrition, especially at a young age. Great Huskies would also do well on foods enhanced with chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health.

20. Pyrenees Husky = Great Pyrenees + Husky

  • Life Span: 12-15 years
  • Average Height: 18-22 inches
  • Average Weight: 75-100 lbs

Pyrenees Huskies are lovable giants that are active and intelligent. They love to be outdoors on long hikes and out camping.

Since the two breeds making up this mix are both working dogs, the Pyrenees Husky is no slouch. When choosing to adopt this big teddy bear, keep in mind that they prefer a physically active life.

Also, because both original breeds were working dogs, they have been bred to think independently to do their jobs better. Unfortunately, their independence also makes for a challenging training experience.

Although training these big dogs is not impossible, it does require patience and consistency. And due to their considerable size, training is not optional.

Though good with children, the Pyrenees Husky can be a bit too much for smaller children. Yet as long as they are supervised, they would likely do well with young kids.

The Pyrenees Husky is a good family dog and would immensely enjoy accompanying its family on outings.

The Pyrenees Husky is an active dog though they are built more for endurance than speed.

So extended walks and hikes are more to their liking than a 5K race.

Because of their size, choosing food for giant breed dogs is best. Foods enhanced with chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health are also an excellent choice for the Pyrenees Husky.

21. Husky Jack = Jack Russell + Husky

  • Life Span: 11-16 years
  • Average Height: 17-19 inches
  • Average Weight: 30-35 lbs

The Husky Jack has been around since the 1900s, though they are still not a popular mix. Their lack of popularity might have a lot to do with their energy level. The Husky Jack is cute, but don’t let their smaller size fool you, behind those sweet eyes is an intelligent dog that loves problem solving, like how to get into a cupboard.

Though they are intelligent they are also stubborn and independent, making them a more challenging dog to train. Also, without proper mental stimulation these dogs have a habit of creating their own fun which often includes digging and chewing.

The Husky Jack is not a dog that enjoys its alone time and can quickly become destructive if left alone too long. The Husky side of this dog has a strong pack instinct making them better in multi-dog households. They dogs are great with children however due to their exuberance they can be a bit too much for small children.

If you are an active family looking for a companion to bring along on family adventures this little dog might be the perfect choice. However, he does need at least 90 minutes of exercise. The Husky Jack might make a good running partner with its high energy level, but it will depend on the weather conditions and their coat.

When choosing a food for the Husky Jack picking one for a high energy breed is best. They burn a lot of calories and need premium quality food to keep them healthy.

22. Siberian Retriever = Labrador + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-12 years
  • Average Height: 20-28 inches
  • Average Weight: 40-60 lbs

Siberian Retrievers also go by Labskies and Huskador. But whatever you choose to call these dogs, the Siberian Retrievers are playful, loyal, and intelligent.

The Siberian Retriever is ideal for large families with kids. Because these dogs are full of energy and have a playful disposition, they would love nothing more than playing for hours with the kids.

The Siberian Retriever is an intelligent dog eager to please, yet they can also display behaviors of independence and stubbornness. They are generally easy to train but require consistency to ensure they don’t learn to ignore their family’s commands. Without proper training and direction, the Siberian Retrievers may even challenge the house rules.

The Siberian Retriever is a social dog but can be protective, so regular socialization is recommended when it comes to this dog. And because these dogs enjoy outdoor activities and require around 90 minutes a day of exercise, it will not be too difficult to get your Siberian Retriever out meeting others.

The Siberian Retriever is not a good dog for apartment living or comfortable being left for periods. Without enough interaction with others, these dogs can become destructive. If you have a busy work schedule, these pups would likely do well in doggy daycare where they can be with others, get added socialization, and burn off excess energy.

Often the Siberian Retriever coat is thicker and requires daily grooming to aid in preventing excess shedding. Though not the largest of dogs, they still would benefit from a medium to large breed high-quality food. And maybe food that aids in reducing shedding.

23. Newfoundsky = Newfoundland + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-12 years
  • Average Height: 21-28 inches
  • Average Weight: 60-120 lbs

The Newfoundsky is devoted, outgoing, and patient, though they may also come with a bit of a mischievous side. They are huge dogs that love spending time with family. Though the Newfoundsky looks like a giant teddy bear, you must do your research before bringing home one of these dogs.

Newfoundskies are good family dogs, though large, they are patient and happy to be around children. And a well-trained Newfoundsky will even do well with small kids. Like all mixes, you don’t know which physical or behavioral traits these dogs will take on. So, you may find yourself with a big docile laid-back pup, or you may end up with an energetic, intelligent, and stubborn dog.

However, most Newfoundskies have a good balance of both parents, making them easy to train and less active. All dogs need exercise, but the Newfoundsky is one husky mix that would be satisfied with a 30-minute daily walk. The Newfoundskies do love the outdoors, especially in colder weather, but they would happily go for a swim instead of a walk in the summer.

Due to both parent breeds thick and heavy coats, the Newfoundsky requires daily grooming, and even with that, you need to okay with dog hair. Newfoundskies are shedders; there’s no way around that, though you may consider feeding a dog food intended to promote a healthy coat. When buying dog food for your Newfoundsky, look for food specially made for giant breed dogs to ensure they receive optimal nutrition. They would also benefit from foods enhanced with chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health.

24. Pitsky = Pit Bull + Husky

  • Life Span: 12-16 years
  • Average Height: 16-25 inches
  • Average Weight: 30-80 lbs

The Pitsky is a loyal, loving, and intelligent dog. However, they are also extremely energetic and demanding of your time. These dogs are not ones who want to be left alone for extended periods. The Pitsky has a strong pack bond and wants to be with their family. The bond of the Pitsky to its family is so strong that it can easily result in separation anxiety.

The Pitsky is usually an easy dog to train, due to the Pit Bull side of its parentage. Yet, on the other side of that coin is an intelligent strong-willed dog that likes to test its human to ensure their worthiness as pack leader. Combining the two breeds created a dog that is easy to train but requires some patience and consistency. Firmness and positive reinforcement training work best with the Pitsky.

Pitskies are a mix of two powerful breeds that are energetic and muscular. These dogs need at least a 60-minute walk every day or a 30-minute run, though beware of warm temperatures as they are prone to overheating.

When bringing home your Pitsky, it is essential to not only start their training immediately but also their socialization. The loyalty a Pitsky shows its family is beyond compare. But this devotion may also become a danger to others if they are not extensively socialized. Pitskies would give their lives protecting their family, but though devoted, they can sometimes become overly protective.

It cannot be stressed enough; these dogs do not want to be left home alone for hours on end. So, if you don’t have the time and lifestyle to devote to this dog, it is best to find a different Husky mix.

The Pitskies make great lap dogs and enjoy spending time with children. But though they are not a danger to those in their family, they can be very protective of the kids, so socialization is critical.

Because the Pitsky is a muscular dog, it requires a high-quality protein forward diet, preferably one formulated for larger breeds. Also, if your Pitsky is particularly active, you may consider a high-performance dog food.

25. Pomsky = Pomeranian + Husky

  • Life Span: 13-15 years
  • Average Height: 10-15 inches
  • Average Weight: 20-30 lbs

The first intentional breeding of a Pomsky occurred in 2012. Since then, this mixed breed has gained popularity due to its small stature and husky appearance. Though these small fluff balls look cute, and they are, they are also a lot of work.

One important thing to note about the Pomsky is their energy level. Their small size does not equate to calm couch potato dogs. Instead, these intelligent, active cuties require at least a 45-60 minute walk per day. Without proper exercise, the Pomsky will become destructive and though smaller, can do severe damage.

Additionally, another issue seen with smaller breeds is a lack of training. However, the Pomsky is not a dog you want to skip training. They are sweet and playful, but they are also intelligent and stubborn, requiring a diligent firm trainer. Most Pomskies are food motivated, which does make training a lot easier.

Though the Pomsky is friendly, they are still a dog that requires good socialization to avoid getting small dog syndrome or becoming overly protective.

Their playful nature and size make them a desirable companion for families with children. However, without proper training and socialization, these little guys can be very nippy.

Unfortunately, due to the popularity, this mixed breed gained in the beginning, there are many sitting in shelters. The Pomsky is a cute dog but requires a lot more than just being carried about, which is why so many ended up in shelters.

Also, the Pomsky requires a lot of grooming since they have both a thick and long coat. Daily grooming is a must; otherwise, your Pomsky may get knots and mats in their hair.

It may seem as if I am trying to talk you out of a Pomsky, and that is not the case, but all too often, the Pomsky is adopted based solely on its appearance, which does not lead to a good end. Pomskies are good-natured, energetic, friendly, happy dogs and make great family pets for the right family.

26. Hug = Pug + Husky

  • Life Span: 12-15 years
  • Average Height: 10-23 inches
  • Average Weight: 15-60 lbs

The Hug is an interesting mix with a broad range in size. The Hug, as it is affectionately known, is a great family dog; they are loving and cheerful and enjoy a good snuggle. However, the Hug is also an active dog and requires a significant daily exercise, about 45-60-minute walk per day. However, that can be shortened if your dog enjoys running. The shorter hair larger version of this mix makes for an excellent running partner.

The Hug is not an aggressive dog by nature but is very alert and makes an excellent watchdog. These dogs are more challenging to train as they are often very willful and stubborn, traits from both parent breeds. If you don’t have the time or patience for training, this may not be the best match.

However, once you and your Hug agree that training is fun, these intelligent, active dogs can enjoy advanced training such as scent work and agility for fun.

The Hug is a good family dog as it loves being with its people and sharing affection. Kids looking for a good snuggle buddy will love having a Hug. Plus, active families will find bringing their Hug along on family outings, whether to a kid’s ballgame or camping, is a fun experience for all. They are social dogs and frequently enjoy meeting others.

One potential drawback to the Hug is some are super shedders. Though some of the mixes are only average shedders, many take on both parents’ traits leaving their hairy calling card everywhere they go. Besides requiring regular brushing, some of these mixes have the facial folds from the pug side. If your Hug has these cute wrinkles, they need to have these areas cleaned daily.

Depending on the size of your Hug will determine the type of food you choose. Though choosing a balanced, high-quality diet is a must.

27. Beaski = Beagle + Husky

  • Life Span: 11-14 years
  • Average Height: 16-22 inches
  • Average Weight: 35-50 lbs

The Beaski is an excellent family dog; they are sweet, loving, and loyal. These active dogs require a lot of exercise and make for great running companions. They need about a 90-minute walk per day or a 45-minute run. Without proper exercise, the Beasky can show signs of anxiety and display destructive behaviors.

These dogs do not make good apartment dogs and are far happier if they have a fenced-in yard to run around. However, always keep an eye on these pups, since if they get bored, they are notorious escape artists.

The Beasky is an intelligent dog that learns quickly and is eager to please. These dogs are suitable for first-time dog parents due to their easy-going nature and trainability. Plus, for those interested in advanced training, the Beasky is excellent at agility, scent work, and competition obedience.

Though it depends on the dog, most Beaskies only require weekly grooming; the shorter the coat, the less grooming time needed. The Beaskies would do well on a high-performance diet if they are active; otherwise, a premium quality food will work just fine.

28. Rottsky = Rottweiler + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-14 years
  • Average Height: 20-24 inches
  • Average Weight: 55-80 lbs

The Rottsky is an athletic dog, though not hyper they are built for endurance. The Rottsky often makes for a great running partner, though very long walks also work for them. The Rottweiler part of this dog was bred for pulling carts and protection, so training them for what they were bred for will keep this dog happy.

But these dogs are not just all brawn; they are also very intelligent and excel at advanced obedience, sledding or skijoring, agility training, or Schutzhund classes. The Rottsky can become anxious and frustrated, if not also mentally stimulated.

The Rottsky is not always known for its social side with other dogs, so it is vital to socialize your dog with other dogs and humans starting at a young age.

Rottskies that have not been adequately socialized have been known to show anti-social behavior, including aggression.

Because the Rottsky is a powerful high-maintenance canine, they are not generally recommended for first-time dog parents. The Rottsky’s training needs to be firm, consistent, and positive, but if you give this dog an inch, they will happily take a mile.

Rottskies are large muscular dogs that require a high-quality protein forward diet formulated for large dogs. They would also benefit from foods enhanced with chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health.

29. Sharberian Husky= Shar-Pei + Husky

  • Life Span: 12-15 years
  • Average Height: 20-25 inches
  • Average Weight: 35-55 lbs

Sharberian Huskies are loyal, intelligent, and active dogs. Though the Sharberian Husky loves their family, they are not known for being overly affectionate or cuddly.

But do not mistake their independence for lack of caring; these dogs are loyal to a fault. Sharberian Huskies are protective of their loved ones, which is one way they show they care.

Though not the most energetic of mixes on this list, the Sharberian Husky is still an active canine requiring at least an hour a day of exercise. Though if your Sharberian Husky has a smooshed in nose, they can have issues with breathing.

The Sharberian Husky is an intelligent dog, but not an easy one to train. These dogs are stubborn, strong-willed, and independent, so not the best fit for first-time dog parents. Training a Sharberian Husky requires skill, patience, and consistency. A Sharberian Husky will not follow a pack leader that lacks confidence.

Though Sharberian Huskies are good family dogs, their protectiveness can be a bit of an issue if they are not adequately socialized. The Shar-Pei was formerly bred for hunting and dogfighting, and though Sharberian Huskies are only half Shar-Pei, that aggressive tendency towards other dogs is a trait often found in the Sharberian Husky. However, early socialization will help reduce the chances that your Sharberian Husky will have issues with dogs.

The Sharberian Husky requires high-quality food for medium to large dogs. Because Sharberian Husky is more prone to skin allergies choosing hypo-allergenic food is best.

30. Siberpoo = Poodle + Husky

  • Life Span: 10-13 years
  • Average Height: 13-22 inches
  • Average Weight: 45-60 lbs

The Siberpoo is very agile and athletic and has a moderate level of energy. Siberpoos would do best with long daily walks and playtime in the yard. Daily walks should be around 45 minutes or at least two miles. Additionally, Siberpoos generally enjoy a good hike since they can handle different climates, swimming, and playing fetch.

Temperament wise, these dogs are friendly but maybe too much to handle for young children or older adults. They are smart and loyal but tend to suffer from separation anxiety if left too long. This hybrid does require a lot of their humans’ attention and time. Siberpoos are also a good candidate for competition obedience trials and agility for fun since they are very smart and do best when mentally and physically challenged.

Also, Siberpoos do best in family situations where the dog can spend time with different family members. However, Siberpoos require rigorous training and socialization to ensure they are well-balanced and behaved dogs.

Because this is a poodle hybrid, Siberpoos do not shed as much as a full-bred Husky. Still, regular grooming is required to ensure they maintain a healthy coat.

Because they are considered large dogs, they will require a specific diet for their size, especially when they are puppies. Also, choosing a food enhanced with chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health would be beneficial.


If you are considering a Husky Mix, I strongly encourage you to look at rescue groups and animal shelters to adopt instead of shop. And for those who want a puppy, there are tons of puppies are waiting for the right home.

I believe most people would be surprised at what you can find at a shelter. Shelter and rescue dogs have not damaged goods; they are homeless dogs. Many mixed breed puppies are unwanted litters, sometimes even from breeders of purebred dogs.

When you get a Husky Mix pup from a shelter or rescue organization, you save a life.

Plus, it costs less money.
