The Siberian Husky is one of the most energetic and exciting dog breeds around.
Huskies are super-talkative, full of personality, and some of the friendliest of all dog breeds. And being mischievous by nature, they’re natural-born escape artists that’ll give Houdini a run for his money.
They’re also gorgeous! They still share many of their physical features with those of their wolf ancestors including colorations, gait, and build.
So, when breeding Huskies with other dogs, you begin to wonder what exactly they’ll provide in their offspring.
Our 25 Favorite Husky Mixed Breeds
Now, let’s start by saying that these are not all of the different husky mixed breeds out there. There are so many more different crossbreeds. However, this is an awesome grouping to show just how goofy, lovable, and beautiful a Husky hybrid can be.
1. Gerberian Shepsky (Siberian Husky x German Shepherd)
The Gerberian Shepsky is the ultimate working dog. Crossbred between a German Shepherd and a Siberian Husky, this breed follows the motto: Work Hard, Play Harder.
The deep loyalty they share with their owners is absolutely undeniable and will go out of their way to ensure no harm comes to them. And they’re great when it comes to kids! They just love having playmates. Shepskies need lots of exercise and play to stay properly stimulated. That’s why we recommend Gerberian Shepskies for active families with the time and facilities to handle them.
2. Alusky (Siberian Husky x Alaskan Malamute)
If you’re in a cold-weather environment and desire a dog that thrives in your climate, the Alusky is a sure-fire match. They’re a cross between an Alaskan Malamute and Siberian Husky. Both of the Alusky’s parent breeds are known for their hard work pulling sleds and assisting within the Arctic Circle.
These dogs are very active, intelligent, and stubborn. And while they can be some of the most loving and loyal pups around, you’ll need to establish your dominance as the pack leader to properly train your Alusky.
3. Goberian (Siberian Husky x Golden Retriever)
This designer dog is a mix between the Siberian Husky and Golden Retriever. They have the body/head structure of a Siberian and the fluffy coat of a Golden. Goberian are remarkably beautiful dogs. But it’s not just their appearance that makes these pups so desirable. They’ve got just about all the qualities you’ll want in a breed.
They exhibit a playfulness to be expected of a Husky along with deep loyalty to their pack leaders. However, they display a gentleness and strong desire to please their owners like a Golden Retriever. They are wonderful family dogs to boot.
4. Pitsky (Siberian Husky x Pitbull)
There’s a common misconception that Pit Bulls (or their associated Hybrids) are mean, aggressive dogs. And that’s simply not true—especially when crossing them with a Siberian Husky!
They are literally the exact opposite. They’re so goofy, lovable, and friendly. And there’s nothing more that they love to do then to spend time playing with you. They’re wonderful dogs for active families who would love to have a dog join them on their daily adventures.
5. Pomsky (Siberian Husky x Pomeranian)
Out of all the many different Husky breeds, this one of the most famous around. They’re a power combo of a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. And since both parents are considered Spitz-type dogs, the hybrid breed doesn’t really change in physical appearance—except for their size. They’re just fun-sized Huskies!
And since they’re part Pomeranian, they’re more than content to be your favorite lap dog. But that doesn’t mean they don’t love to play. There isn’t a Husky hybrid out there that doesn’t want to spend all day playing with its friends and master.
6. Horgi (Siberian Husky x Welsh Corgi)
They’re super playful and have enormous personalities in their little short-legged bodies. There’s a good chance that they’re also going to inherit the striking blue eyes that are commonly found in Huskies.
7. Rottsky (Siberian Husky x Rottweiler)
At first glance, the Rottsky can look intimidating. They’ll have the strength of a Rottweiler with the stamina of a Siberian Husky. These pups are built for sheer endurance. However, they’re deeply loyal to their masters. And with proper training, Rottskies are great guard dogs for their families.
However, these dogs aren’t just content to stay on watch duty. They have a perpetual supply of energy. If you’re looking to step your exercise game, work out with a Rottsky. This being said, these hybrids don’t take well to confined or apartment living. They absolutely need their space.
8. Hug (Siberian Husky x Pug)
What do you get when you cross possibly the two goofiest dogs in all of Dogkind? The Hug. The Hug is a hybrid between a Siberian Husky and a Pug. And they’re everything you could possibly expect.
They keep their same adorable goofiness except in a bigger and more energetic package. Hugs are always ready for your affectionate or just to play. Like most of the breeds on this list, they’re well-suited for active families. However, the Pug side of them does allow for them to do well in apartments and smaller homes.
9. Aussie Siberian (Siberian Husky x Australian Shepherd)
This breed should come with a warning. The Aussie Siberian is one of (if not, the most) active dogs in existence. Derived from the Siberian Husky and the Australian Shepherd, the Aussie Siberian has more energy than they know what to do with.
Huskies were bred specifically to pull sleds through tundra for weeks on end, and Australian Shepherds were designed to herd sheep and cattle all day. If you decide to become an Aussie Siberian parent, you’re going to need a game plan. These pups require tons of land of very large yards to really get their fix. But when the day is done, they’ll love nothing more than to curl up at your feet for your undivided attention.
10. Huskimo (Siberian Husky x American Eskimo)
This relatively common breed is a mix between a Husky and an Amercian Eskimo Dog. Like every other Husky breed, they require tons of exercise and an active family. Since both parent breeds are dedicated pack dogs, you’ll need to gain their trust and respect by proving to be an effective pack leader. Otherwise, they may prove stubborn.
However, once they find their role in the pack, they are amazing with children and even strangers with their kind-hearted mannerisms.
11. Dusky (Siberian Husky x Dachshund)
Part-Husky and Part-Dachshund make for one undeniably cute dog. Duskies give you the facial features and coat of a Husky all wrapped up in the build of a sausage dog. And you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t share our sentiment on them.
Duskies can get to be a bit stubborn though. Both the Siberian Husky and Dachshund can be relatively stubborn breeds, so it’s no surprise that a Dusky is either. Training them may be a bit more difficult than other breeds, but it’s extremely doable. And like the Hug above, Duskies can favor well in smaller homes and apartments.
12. Samusky (Siberian Husky x Samoyed)
If you’re looking for a Siberian Husky but just a bit more fluff and grace, a Samusky might be the best choice for you. This hybrid is derived from Husky and Samoyed parents—both of which have an extremely similar history.
They are among some of the most sociable and friendly dogs you’ll find as well. Whether it’s large families, children, or other pets, a Samusky will do great with minimal socialization.
13. Siberpoo (Siberian Husky x Poodle)
When it comes to this Poodle hybrid mix, high intelligence is a trait you can definitely expect, with both the parent breeds being some of the most intelligent on the planet. They are also highly adaptable dogs and can tolerate the heat better than their Husky parent due to the Poodles milder coat.
Both of the Siberpoos parent breeds were breed as working animals who lived their lives around humans, and so this breed is highly loyal and dedicated to their human owners. This also means, however, that they will become highly attached and will suffer from separation anxiety when left alone for long periods. This is a highly active breed that will need a lot of daily exercise to stay happy and healthy.
14. Siberian Pinscher (Siberian Husky x Doberman Pinscher)
Combining the friendly nature of the Husky with the courageous and stoic nature of the Doberman Pinscher, the Siberian Pinscher makes for an energetic and active working dog that also functions well as a loyal guard dog. This is a powerful breed, and although their amenable personality makes for a great playmate for children, they should be closely monitored due to their large size and incredible strength.
This is a dog with immense energy reserves, and you’ll need to make sure they get sufficient exercise in order to burn it off. They are perfect exercise buddies!
15. Boxsky (Siberian Husky x Boxer)
A cross between a Husky and a Boxer, this energetic and unique breed is a fairly new hybrid. They make outstanding watchdogs because of the protective and loyal nature they inherit from Boxers. They are known for being an incredibly vocal breed, barking at almost everything that moves! They take well to training though, and so this trait can be greatly reduced with the correct techniques.
Due to their high-energy and hyperactive nature, they can prove to be somewhat overbearing around small children but are not known to be aggressive.
16. Belusky (Siberian Husky x Belgian Malinois)
The Belgian Malinois is an independent, intelligent, and loving dog, and this hybrid inherits most of these characteristics too. Combined with the friendly and loyal nature of Huskies, this makes for a wonderfully amenable breed. Both the parent breeds have strong herding instincts and seemingly inexhaustible energy reserves, which will take a ton of activity and training to keep in check.
While these dogs are not aggressive in nature, their powerful herding instincts can cause them to be overly protective at times. This can manifest as innocent nipping or attempts at herding other pets, and so may not be an ideal pet to have around small children.
17. Beasky (Siberian Husky x Beagle)
There may not be a more affectionate Husky mix than this Beagle hybrid. These are intelligent and easygoing dogs that are easy to train and ideal additions to families with small children.
These dogs have parent breeds that both require a lot of human attention, and they are much the same. They love to be around their owners and will suffer from separation anxiety if left alone for extended periods.
18. Siberian Boston (Siberian Husky x Boston Terrier)
This Boston Terrier hybrid is both easy to groom, with their short and straight coat, and easy to train due to the Boston Terriers’ high intellect and eagerness to please. Like most Husky hybrids, these dogs will need a lot of mental and physical stimulation and will develop problematic behavior if they don’t get it. They are highly affectionate dogs and will usually bond strongly with one person in the family.
Boston Terriers are known to have a stubborn streak, and this may be inherited by your Siberian Boston too. They are loyal, lively, and playful pooches that will make a great addition to any family.
19. Ausky (Siberian Husky x Australian Cattle Dog)
A mix of Husky and Australian Cattle Dog, the Ausky is alert, intelligent, loyal, and has an inherent sense of duty and purpose in their character. This is due to their parent breeds long association with humans. Although these dogs are not to be enormously vocal breed, their protective nature still makes them great guard dogs, as they are wary of strangers.
These working dogs thrive when given a specific task to complete, and you’ll need to give them plenty of stimulating activity to keep them happy. They have a tendency toward nipping and herding due to their heritage, and so may not be ideal pets around small children.
20. Chusky (Siberian Husky x Chow Chow)
This high-maintenance hybrid, a cross with a Chow Chow, is sure to give your brushing skills a run for their money! They are medium-sized dogs, although they will appear a lot larger due to their characteristically huge double coats. These dogs are fairly independent and aloof —almost cat-like at times— and probably aren’t the ideal choice if you are looking for a cuddly shadow.
That said, they are fiercely loyal and protective dogs who will stop at nothing in protecting their owners. If you’re looking for a fluffy and loyal companion pooch that doesn’t require constant attention, the Chusky may just be the one for you. Their Husky genetics means they still require a lot of exercise, and they are easy dogs to train.
21. Siberian Cocker (Siberian Husky x Cocker Spaniel)
The Siberian Cocker inherits all the best characteristics of their parent breeds, including the small, compact, and muscular body of the Cocker Spaniel, and the dense soft coat of the Husky. They are the one hybrid on this list with low to moderate energy levels. So, while they require the regular exercise that all dogs need to stay happy, they are not the inexhaustible energy balls that most Husky mixes are.
These dogs love to run and play with children and will make fast friends with other pets. With both parent breeds being social, outgoing, and happy, they are the ideal choice for a friendly family companion.
22. Huskita (Siberian Husky x Akita)
This hybrid cross of Husky and Akita are highly loyal, protective, and energetic, just like their parent breeds. They are a common and popular breed that has been around for a while, even though they are yet to be recognized by the American Kennel Club. They are easily mistaken for wolves with their soft coats and pointy ears, but their curled-in tail usually gives them away.
These dogs can be fairly anxious at times, which can occasionally result in aggressive outbursts. They are wary of strangers at first but tend to warm up quickly. Early socialization and proper training will largely mitigate both these traits.
23. Pyrenees Husky (Siberian Husky x Great Pyrenees)
A cross between the energetic Husky and the proud Great Pyrenees, this hybrid is a large and powerful breed with a long history as working dogs. They are generally calm, well-mannered, and loyal dogs who can be very protective of their owners. Although they are highly affectionate and intelligent, they can be stubborn at times and consequently challenging to train.
These dogs need a great deal of physical and mental stimulation and will often get destructive if left without directed exercise.
24. Husky Jack (Siberian Husky x Jack Russell Terrier)
This highly energetic combination of a Husky and Jack Russel Terrier are bold and brave little dogs, with a lot more bark than bite. They have a strong tendency to assert their dominance, no matter the size of the opposing dog, and this blind bravery can get them into trouble. They have mischievous and stubborn streaks at times, which can make them a challenge to train.
While this will take some patience and time, they will make beautiful and loyal little family dogs.
They are independent dogs who are happy to do their own thing, and so they are a good choice for owners who are away frequently. However, they will still need regular and consistent exercise.
25. Sibercaan (Siberian Husky x Middle Eastern Canaan)
This designer breed is a cross between Husky and the Middle-Eastern Canaan dog, and are highly energetic and active dogs with high intellect. They are loyal and protective dogs with a strong prey drive that may lead to some altercations with strangers and other small dogs, but this is usually not an issue if they are properly trained. With early socialization, they are gentle and calm with children and will make a great family companion.
They are high energy, active dogs that are also known for their loud and frequent vocalizations, and so are not a great choice for apartment living.
While these are just a smattering of the seemingly endless Husky mixed breeds, they all have one major thing in common. They retain the playful energy of the Siberian Husky. Each of these breeds will require devoted exercise and playtime.
But with the proper stimulation and socialization, you’ll find that any of these gorgeous pups will make a welcome addition to your home.
