With their piercing blue eyes, mischievous acts, and contagious energy, it’s no surprise why Siberian Huskies are some of the most popular dogs in the world. In fact, they’re often in the top 15 for most popular breeds in America!
Despite their occasional stubborn and wily ways, Huskies make great pets for those who can match their liveliness. And trust me – you will need plenty of energy. While you may never be bored with a Husky, you may never get to rest either!
While purebred Huskies are iconic, there are still many handsome Husky mixes that bring together the best traits of two breeds. So, we’ve put together a list of some of the most notable Siberian Husky mixes that you should really know about.

Best Husky Mixes
Because of the worldwide prevalence of Huskies, you can expect a large variety of Husky mixes. This list is by no means is a comprehensive list of all Husky mixes. There’s almost an infinite number of options.
However, these are our favorites one. They’re unique, elegant, a little bit weird, but no one can deny the the gorgeous and exotic appearances of a Husky hybrid. So don’t forget to let us know in the comments: which mix is your favorite?
Parents: Alaskan Malamute x Husky
The Alusky dog comes from a long line of sled dogs, with both its parent breeds renowned for work in the arctic circle. So, it makes sense that a mix between an Alaskan Malamute and a Husky would excel at pulling sleds as well!
However, they are much more likely to accompany owners on runs rather than week-long treks through frozen tundra. The Aluskies are very active dogs, but extra precaution should be taken by owners who live in warmer climates.
Aluskies are a unique blend of intelligence and stubbornness, which can be seen in both parent breeds. So while they can learn tasks and be trained quickly, it can be a challenge to owners unfamiliar with the proper techniques.
2. Gerberian Shepsky
Parents: German Shepherd x Husky
The mix of the mischievous Siberian Husky and the alert German Shepherd, the Gerberian Shepsky is a proud dog that isn’t afraid to have lots of fun. Still, their energy and testing of boundaries will require an owner who is consistent and firm.
Gerberians are highly affectionate and their deep loyalty to the owners is unquestionable. But, this can also make them wary of outsiders, causing them to be cautious and ready to protect their owner’s territory if need be.
But in usual day-to-day life, they’re gentle dogs that get along well with kids. However, they are not recommended for houses with other pets, especially smaller ones. That is, unless they have been socialized early and thoroughly.

Parents: Golden Retriever x Husky
The Goberian is a designer hybrid that crosses two extremely popular breeds: the Golden Retriever and the Siberian Husky. Given the prevalence of the two breeds, the Goberian was only a matter of time.
From the Golden Retriever side you can expect a smart but gentle sensitivity. Goberians also have a strong desire to please their owners that carries over well to interacting with people in general. Still, they may be too hyper for small kids.
The Husky side adds some extra energy and liveliness, but also a possible stubborn side. Even so, Goberians are usually easy to train and will be fiercely loyal to their pack leader (that means you, hopefully!).

Parents: Welsh Corgi x Husky
The amazing Horgi is not the most obvious cross, but it’s also the hybrid that we all needed. By combining the wolflike elegance of a Husky with the short-legged cuteness of a Welsh Corgi, you get none other than the Horgi.
For the most part, the Horgi will inherit the exotic colored eyes of the Siberian Husky. But because the short stubby legs (dwarfness) of the Corgi is a dominant trait, you can except that in this Corgi Husky mix too.
A Horgi will be energetic, as both dogs have lively personalities. But with grooming, expect to spend a great deal of time cleaning up after their loose fur – especially during shedding season twice a year!

Parents: Pitbull Terrier x Husky
The sweet Pitsky is the unusual cross between an American Pit Bull Terrier and a Siberian Husky. And although Pit Bulls are often viewed as “aggressive dogs,” the Pitsky is quite the opposite. Pitskies are super playful and always full of energy.
As a result, they’ve become popular dogs among families that live an active lifestyle. We aren’t joking – these dogs really need their daily physical activity. So if you’re looking for a large lap dog, stay away from the Pitsky!
Because there is no standard with the Pitsky, the physical features of these Husky mixes can vary greatly. Depending on the dog, some can look more like a Husky, while others a Pit Bull. However, the gorgeous Husky eyes are usually there.

Parents: Rottweiler x Husky
Combining the muscular build of a Rottweiler with the lithe strength of a Siberian Husky, the Rottsky is a hybrid breed that is built for endurance. Few Siberian Husky mixes will have the durability and stamina of the Rottsky.
Both parent breeds are known for their physical prowess. The Rottweiler has a history as a formidable guard dog. On the other hand, the Husky was a working dog for the Chukchi people of northern Russia. Hence, the endless energy, endurance and strength.
As such, a Rottsky matches well to owners who are ready to take their exercise game up a notch (or two). But, no matter how much you run with them, they still won’t take too well to smaller living situations. Big yards are highly recommended!

7. Sharberian Husky
Parents: Shar Pei x Husky
A designer dog that crosses the Shar-pei with a Siberian Husky, the Sharberian Husky is an intelligent, yet affectionate dog. While they make excellent family dogs, their stubborn and willful demeanor at times make them better for experienced trainers.
Praise and positive reinforcement will go a long way with the training, but in the end, you need consistency and firmness. They might be wary of strangers, but early socialization is key for them to get along with other dogs.
And while they can be sensitive around children, they do better in families with older kids who understand how to interact with them properly. In other words, make sure the kids are old enough to respect these large dogs.

Parents: Beagle x Husky
If you become the owner of a Beaski, get ready to be showered with tons of affection. Both Beagles and Siberian Huskies are known for being affectionate dogs. As such, the hybrid will likely be the same.
They may pick up on the intelligence of the Husky parent, but may have the temperament mellowed out by the laid-back demeanor of a Beagle. This works together to make them relatively easy to train and helps them fit in well with larger families.
It’s still important to socialize a Beaski early on to make sure they get along with children or other pets. And when it comes to appearance, there is some room for variation. Their looks could be a blend of their parents, or they might show more traits from a single side.

9. Aussie Siberian
Parents: Australian Shepherd x Husky
Not to be confused with an Ausky, the Aussie Siberian is instead a cross of the purebred Australian Shepherd and Siberian Husky. They’re dogs that pack some serious energy, and can be borderline hyperactive.
We’re not joking. One parent was bred to herd all day, while the other was bred to pull sleds for weeks. Given their high intelligence, active games and exercise will lead to a healthy, clever, and highly trainable Husky mix.
Needless to say, small apartments just won’t do. Instead, these dogs need outdoor spaces, preferably large yards, where they can let out their energy. Overall, Aussie Siberians are very sweet dogs that develop a strong sense of loyalty to their families.

Parents: Canaan Dog x Husky
Here’s a designer breed with some seriously ancient roots. Not only are Siberian Huskies an old breed, but the Canaan Dog may have been domesticated as far back as 4000 years ago. How many dog breeds have made it this far?
But plenty has happened since, and now there is some debate as to what breeds make a Sibercaan. While the Canaan Dog is an accepted parent, some suggest the second parent should be a Siberian Husky, and others vote for the Native American Indian Dog.
Either way, Sibercaans are known for being extremely trainable, intelligent, and energetic. They do best with firm, but caring training that isn’t overly repetitive. Sibercaans integrate well into families, but because they may be suspicious of strangers.
Parents: Pug x Husky
When you cross a Pug with a Siberian Husky you get a designer breed that is affectionate, friendly, and always ready to play. Like with most Husky mixes, Hugs do best with active families that can provide plenty of exercise.
Thankfully, they require less maintenance if they take after the Pug parent for their coat. But still be prepared for grooming. Hugs are usually quick learners but a firm consistency may be needed if they show some of a Husky’s infamous stubbornness.
The good news is that this is one of the few Husky mixes that can do well in apartments or smaller houses. Just be sure that they still get daily walks and the occasional trip to a dog park. Hugs love to play, play and play more.

12. Husky Jack
Parents: Jack Russell Terrier x Husky
Despite sources pointing to this Husky mix being around since the late 1900s, it has yet to be recognized by the American Kennel Club. However, the Husky Jack doesn’t need their approval to be known as a loyal and sweet companion.
On top of that, they have near boundless energy, being the result of combining two lively breeds: the Jack Russell Terrier and the Siberian Husky. They don’t see much variation in size and weight, but can come in all sorts of colors.
Their coat can be any combination of red, sable, white, black, or grey along with markings that are various shades of brown, from light creams to darker tones. The Husky Jack also boasts a somewhat longer lifespan, with them regularly living up to 16 years.

13. Pyrenees Husky
Parents: Great Pyrenees x Husky
The Pyrenees Husky is one of the bigger Husky mixes out there, thanks to the grand size of the Pyrenees parent. They may look bulky and tough (and they are!), but they’re also very gentle dogs that have a sensitive personality.
For this reason, they work well as therapy dogs, though still retaining high energy. In fact, the Pyrenees Husky comes from a line of working dogs. So, they appreciate having the chance to be active with families that love hikes or other activities.
There can have hints of stubbornness and a knack for independence in them, which might make dealing with them difficult on occasion. But if you are patient, they are likely to come around with consistent training.

Parents: Akita Inu x Husky
Both of the Huskita’s parent breeds go way, way back. The Siberian Husky has been here for ages, originating from northern Russia. Likewise, the Akita Inu can trace its roots several hundred years back in Japan.
Huskitas take the energy of a Husky and the loyalty of an Akita – combined into a single designer dog breed. As such, there can be some variation in their coat, but it will generally be short to medium in length with coloration coming from one or both parents.
Something you might notice from the Akita side is a tendency to clean themselves after eating, in addition to being generally fastidious around the house. And although they still require maintenance, it looks like they might be willing to lend a hand (or paw).

15. Siberian Cocker
Parents: American Cocker Spaniel x Husky
Combining the sportiness of the American Cocker Spaniel and the hyper energy of Huskies, the Siberian Cocker turns out to be an agile and delightful dog. There will be variation in height, especially in male Siberian Cockers.
Males tend to range between 13-20 inches tall, while females are generally 14-16 inches. The same goes for their weight, with some as light as 26 pounds, while others top out at 40. Regardless of size, they are fit and muscular when given proper exercise.
Despite their athleticism, the Siberian Cocker has a more moderate level of energy when compared to other Husky crosses. This means that they can adapt much better to smaller homes and families with younger children.
Parents: Chow Chow x Husky
Another Husky mix that can be on the larger side, the Chusky is not for the faint of heart. That’s to say, prepare for heavy shedding and high maintenance. But if you put in the work, the Chusky can develop into a truly close companion.
They’re naturally friendly and playful, so they can even get along well with children. In addition to time spent grooming, be ready to deal with some stubborn streaks (a common misconception for low intelligent dogs).
For these reasons, Chuskies are recommended for more experienced dog owners. And a single look at their thick, dense coats will tell you that they do much better in moderate to colder climates. Hot and sunny places…not so much.
Parents: American Eskimo Dog x Husky
When you crossbreed an American Eskimo Dog with a Siberian Husky, you get a Huskimo. Loyal and playful, they have the expected high energy levels of most Husky mixes and will need lots of exercise. Otherwise, they may be difficult to control.
With proper care, Huskimos are great around children and strangers due to their sociable and loving temperaments. But with their strong will and intelligence, it’s vital that owners exert their authority confidently, but carefully. Aggression is not the way to go.
Huskimos are ready to fit into the pack hierarchy of your home. After all, both parent breeds have the pack-dog mentality. You’ll still need to let them know you’re the boss – a kind, but firm, and friendly “boss.”
Parents: Australian Cattle Dog x Husky
A cross between the Australian Cattle Dog and the Siberian Husky, this breed really shines when it comes to intelligence. Both parent breeds are known to pack some serious brains, and it shows in this hybrid breed.
Just like clever people, an Ausky will need to stave off boredom, so they’ll thrive best with owners that can provide stimulating activities – herding, pulling, running, agility training, etc. Without it, they can feel under-stimulated, which manifests in uncooperative behavior.
Keep in mind, the Ausky might not get along well with small children or other pets due to a combination of the Husky’s prey drive and the Australian Cattle Dog’s somewhat nippy instincts. Early socialization is your best bet to curb these tendencies.

19. Siberian Boston
Parents: Boston Terrier x Husky
Of all the Husky mixes, the Siberian Boston is one of the easiest to care for, at least when it comes to grooming maintenance. By combining the Siberian Husky and Boston Terrier, the result is a medium dog that can be a joy to train.
Siberian Bostons will have the intelligence of a Husky with the readiness to please of a Boston Terrier. It’s the perfect quality to tone down the Husky’s stubborn side. Even so, a Siberian Boston is going to need plenty of physical and mental activity.
It’s important to know that, from the Boston Terrier side, there can be a tendency to develop separation anxiety. In other words, they don’t do well in homes where they are often left alone. Busy owners should stay away from this Husky mix.
20. Siberian Retriever
Parents: Labrador x Husky
Given the overwhelming popularity of both the Siberian Husky and especially the Labrador, the Siberian Retriever makes a ton of sense. As you’d expect, these dogs are high-octane dogs with an affectionate side too.
In the home, they’re as friendly as any Husky mix. If they could play with you all day, they would happily do so. However, Siberian Retrievers aren’t all play. From the Labrador side, they’ve inherited the patience, obedience and eagerness to please.
For all those reasons, Siberian Retrievers make excellent guide dogs and even better home companions. They do need quite a bit of socialization, though. Otherwise, they tend to play well with other dogs and children.

Parents: Dachshund x Husky
As a hybrid of the short-legged Dachshund and the wolf-like Husky, the Dusky is a designer dog that isn’t the most obvious choice. However, they’re some of the most adorable Husky mixes that we have!
Given the huge size difference of the parent breeds, Duskies will vary a lot in both weight and height. It really depends on which parent they take more from. However, the coat colors can be anything from chocolate to a bright copper.
Both parents have a certain stubbornness to them. So, we can probably expect Duskies to have the same. On the bright side, these dogs will likely thrive with children around. Their cheerful and positive vibe makes them great family dogs.

Parents: Pomeranian x Husky
The Pomsky is perhaps the most famous and popular Husky mix in the dogdom. Bred from the Siberian Husky and Pomeranian, they’re adorable super designer dogs. Just think of them as small and fluffy Huskies.
Pomskies are perfect for those that enjoy the looks of the Husky, but want a more compact and convenient lap dog. Thanks to the Pomeranian side, these dogs don’t mind cuddling up with you on the couch. But, that’s not to say they don’t love to play.
Pomskies tend to inherit coat colors of the Husky. As both parents are double-coated spitz dogs, the Pomsky will grow a stunning and silky coat. Plus, it’s possible they inherit the unique eye colors of Huskies too.

Parents: Belgian Malinois x Husky
The Belusky is the stunning combination of the Belgian Malinois with the Siberian Husky. In the world of designer dogs, they’re some of the most handsome mixes. But while they do look good, Beluskies aren’t recommended for everyone.
These dogs are as hyper as dogs get. In fact, we suggest they need a minimum of 1 to 2 hours of high-energy activities per day. With a sturdy build, compact muscular frame and superb stamina, Beluskies may be great for agility training.
The shedding will be significant, so expect to brush these dogs at least twice a week. And thanks to their thick double coats, we don’t suggest bringing one to regions with warm climate. They won’t be too happy about that.
Parents: Boxer x Husky
Also known as the Husker, the crossbreed of the Siberian Husky and Boxer is the Boxsky. As amazing as they look, Boskies do need a lot of attention and care. They’re not a Husky mix meant for everyone.
The Bosky has a positive and cheerful personality. In fact, they’ll brighten up anyone’s day with their uplifting temperaments. They’re passionate dogs, to say the least. However, the Bosky expects that same affection and love reciprocated back.
Thanks to their unwavering loyalty, they’ll also have your back. From the Boxer side, the alert and vigilant nature can be seen in Boskies. So, they make fantastic guard dogs in addition to loving home companions.
25. Siberian Pinscher
Parents: Doberman Pinscher x Husky
The Siberian Pinscher is a marvelous Husky mix that combines the courageousness of the Dobermann with the friendliness of the Siberian Husky. The result is a more balanced dog – one that can thrive as both guard dogs and companions.
Of course, the Siberian Pinscher will inherit the physical prowess and strength from the Doberman side. However, the affectionate and sociable personalities of the Husky make them gentle and sweet at home.
The only downside is the amount of exercise these Husky mixes will need. Given that both parents are known for physicality, we’d recommend at least 1 to 2 hours of frisbee, catch or running. Having a big yard helps a lot in this case.

Parents: Standard Poodle x Husky
There are so many names for this Husky hybrid, including the Huskypoo and Poosky. But Siberpoo was our favorite. However, don’t let these interesting names distract you from the amazing dog that the Siberpoo is.
They’re some of the most adaptable dogs, thanks to their high intelligence and inherited Poodle coats. Siberpoos will thrive in warm climate, cold climate, apartments or farms. The only downside is their need for attention. Also, they don’t do well in solitude.
From the Poodle side, the Siberpoo inherits the proud and dignified mannerism. They know they’re great dogs and act accordingly. Of course, these mixes will need plenty of mental and physical stimulation.

27. Bernese Husky
Parents: Bernese Mountain Dog x Husky
The Bernese Mountain Dog and Husky hybrid is a unique cross that is both beautiful and elegant. It seems as if Bernese Huskies have inherited all the best physical and personality traits from both parent breeds.
These hybrids will most likely inherit the signature coat colors of the Bernese Mountain Dog. However, they may inherit the amazing eye colors of the Husky – thus creating one of the most stunning Husky mixes we’ve seen.
As both parent breeds were bred in cold climate, these don’t won’t enjoy being placed in a hot region. And because of their thick double coats, you’ll need to prepare for shedding, especially during the “blowing coat” seasons.
Parents: Samoyed x Husky
The Samusky is the elegant (and fluffy) cross between the Samoyed and Siberian Husky. Both parent breeds are much alike, with a similar genetic and working history. And as we imagined, the hybrid is an equally friendly and sociable dog.
Both Huskies and Samoyeds are some of the most adaptable dogs. As such, the Samusky does great in large families with kids, or a one-person home. With proper socialization, the Samusky will seamlessly get along with the other family dog too!
With a long history as working dogs, this hybrid offspring will also need a decent amount of daily exercise. No surprise here. But if you want to cuddle up on the couch, he’s more than willing to do that too.
29. Dalmatian Husky
Parents: Dalmatian x Husky
It’s too bad we don’t have a creative name for this mix yet. Nonetheless, the Dalmatian and Husky hybrid has become one of the most underrated Husky mixes. Although they need more training, they’re worth the effort.
Both Dalmatians and Huskies are very active and energetic, and the hybrid is no different. They’re great with older children, but these hyper dogs could potential hurt a smaller kid. Obedience training is key with these dogs!
The Dalmatian Husky may inherit the thick double coat of the Husky. However, they will almost always inherit some patches of the iconic black and white Dalmatian colors. Can you imagine a Husky with Dalmatian colors? That’s what they are, pretty much.
30. Labrador Husky
Parents: Labrador x Husky (?)
The Labrador Husky is a cross between a….wait…it’s actually not a Husky mix. Rather, it’s a dog breed all on its own. Often confused with a Labrador-Siberian Husky mix, this dog is a breed that was independently developed in the Labrador region of Canada.
While Labrador-Husky mixes do exist, this breed instead traces its ancestry to the Alaskan Malamute, German Shepherd and even wolves! It’s why they have an eerie resemblance to wild wolves and other spitz-type dog breeds.
Much like actual Husky mixes, the Labrador Husky is strong-willed and intelligent. And, unsurprisingly, they are highly active. Needless to say, these dogs have a strong need for exercise, both mental and physical, in order to be happy and well-behaved.
Parents: Great Dane x Husky
The Great Danesky is the hybrid of the Great Dane and Husky breeds. And yes, they often do inherit the big size and stature of the Great Dane. While Danesky sizes can vary depending on parents, they’ll likely be around 130 pounds (and up to 190).
Great Danes are typically calm and reserved dogs. On the other hand, Huskies are energetic, lively and a lot to handle. However, the hybrid can be anywhere in between. Most Danesky owners admit that their dogs are very active, often taking up the Husky’s temperament.
Even so, the Great Danesky seems to strike the perfect balance, as the Great Dane side often tempers down the liveliness coming from the Husky parent. And no matter what, these dogs will need plenty of exercise to keep them happy.

The vet said both huskies and coon hounds are nervous breeds. We love him though and think he’s the best!
