The Siberian Husky is an incredibly popular breed that seems to only get more popular as the years go by. And it’s no wonder! They are truly amazing dogs that are eager to offer their companionship to us. Here we will dive into some of the husky mix breeds aka crossbreeds that have begun to emerge as the Siberian Husky has mixed with other breeds!
1. German Shepherd Husky Mix (Gerberian Shepsky)
The Gerberian Shepsky, or Shepsky for short, is an energetic medium to large-sized dog. They can weigh anywhere from 40 to 80 pounds depending on the parents. They are incredibly intelligent, eager to please, and love to keep busy and active. They can have a brown, black, white, cream, red, or blue coat.
Many people describe them as being almost wolf-like in appearance. Many pups have the distinctive blue eyes, but others may get the warm brown eyes of the German Shepherd. Some even have one of each!

2. Pitbull Husky Mix (Pitsky)
The Pitsky is a short haired husky that can weigh as little as 30 pounds to as much as 80 pounds. Most of these pups often inherit the short hair of their Pitty parent, but some may get a bit longer fur more closely resembling the Husky parent’s coat.
These dogs are known for having lots of stamina and energy, so an active family would be a great fit. They are typically sturdy and strongly built.

3. Pomeranian Husky Mix (Pomsky)
What happens when you mix together two of the sassiest dog breeds of all time? Well, you get a Pomsky! A Siberian Husky and Pomeranian mix is typically categorized as a small to medium dog. Usually, they never weigh more than 35 pounds.
Their coat can be any of the typical Pomeranian colors or Husky colors, or a combination of the two. Since both parent breeds are double-coated dogs, you can be sure that the Pomsky will shed!

4. Australian Shepherd Husky Mix (Aussie Siberian)
These pups can look like any combination of Husky and Australian shepherd colors like black, white, brown, red, and merle. No matter what they look like, you can be certain that these pups will shed just as much as their parents! The loyalty of the Australian Shepherd pairs perfectly with the independent streak of the Siberian Husky in this mix.
These dogs have a need for activity. In fact, when you combine the Australian Shepherd and its top speed of 30 to 40 mph with the endurance of a Siberian Husky bred for long treks, you’ve got a pup who wants to go fast and go the distance!

5. Border Collie Husky Mix (Border Husky)
These pups have a medium-length thick coat. It can be either a little bit rough to the touch or soft, depending on the parents. They also are known for their high energy level and their desire to work and keep busy.
Border Huskies often get the black and white coloring from the Husky but can be tan, brown, or even red from the Collie side. Though high energy, they are known for being great family dogs who are happy to settle down after the end of a busy day.

6. Rottweiler Husky Mix (Rotsky)
In this crossbreed, the Siberian Husky features show through in the dog’s face, while the Rottweiler features can be seen in the body makeup. Since both breeds can be considered large breeds, they can weigh as much as 100 pounds. But depending on the size of the parents, it wouldn’t be uncommon for them to weigh somewhere more in the range of 50 to 80 pounds.
A Rottsky’s coat will typically be a combination of the two parent breeds. Instead of having a thick, long coat like the Husky and a short, smooth coat like the Rottie, the Rottsky will probably have something more in the middle, like a short but thick coat. Both breeds are known to be independent thinkers and have a rebellious streak, so you’ll never have a dull moment!

7. Pug Husky Mix (Hug)
This mix can weigh as little as 15 pounds to about 45 pounds. As far as color and appearance go, the pup will often look more like one parent than the other.
However, other changes will be noticeable aside from just size. For example, if the pup looks more like a Husky in the face and body, its ears may be floppy like that of the Pug. Or if the pup has a Pug appearance, maybe it will maintain the straight triangular ears of the husky.
Regardless, this is one interesting mix!

8. Labrador Retriever Husky Mix (Labsky)
Two of the most popular breeds in the United States are the Husky and the Labrador Retriever. A mix between the two breeds will often be a medium to large dog between 45 to 70 pounds.
The coat is often a combination of colors from both parents, including the Husky’s black and white or the brown, yellow, or red from the Labrador Retriever.
These mixes love to have fun and play to get out all their energy. They are also very loving and affectionate to their families.

9. Corgi Husky Mix (Horgi)
This mix breed is on the smaller end of the spectrum for Husky mixes and typically only weighs between 20 and 50 pounds.
Often, these pups will have the looks of a husky, but their bodies will be shaped much like their Corgi parent. They’ll have a long body, short legs, and lots of fur, so be ready to get busy brushing!

10. Chow Chow Husky Mix (Chusky aka Chowsky)
The Chusky, a mix between a Husky and a Chow Chow is sometimes also called the Chowsky. You can be sure that no matter what, this mix will have an extremely thick, fluffy coat!
These pups often display a regal air of authority that they inherit from their Chow Chow parent but still have the fun-loving disposition of the Siberian Husky.
They typically weigh between 45 and 60 pounds. They can look more like the Chow with red, cinnamon, cream, blue, and black coloring or more like the Husky’s standard coloring.
Owner’s Guide: Chow Chow Husky Mix
11. Akita Husky Mix (Huskita)
The Huskita, a mix between a Siberian Husky and Akita typically weighs around 50-75 pounds, making this mix one of the bigger mixes on this list. Akitas were bred to be guard dogs who would protect the royal families of Japan, so they do have a protective instinct and are very devoted to their families.
The Husky is fun-loving and affectionate to just about everyone, so this mix often has a nice balance of extroverted to introverted behaviors. The breed absolutely loves to be the center of attention and may need some early socialization to make sure they know to share attention with other dogs if your family has multiple.
Owner’s Guide: Akita Husky Mix
12. Golden Retriever Husky Mix (Goberian)
The Goberian, a Husky and Golden Retriever mix, typically weighs about 45 to 85 pounds, so they can be both large and medium-sized. Since these two breeds are quite different in their appearances, a mix between the two can be a strikingly beautiful dog.
This husky mix breed will have the fluffy blonde of the golden with the blue eyes of the Husky. And more than likely, they’ll also inherit the talkative nature of the Husky!
Because these dogs are both so active and energetic, if they don’t have an outlet to let that energy out, they can become somewhat destructive. Lots of exercise and fun activities are a must for this breed!
Owner’s Guide: Golden Retriever Husky Mix
13. Poodle Husky Mix (Huskypoo aka Huskydoodle)
As doodles, any dog breed that has been mixed with Poodles, have become more popular, it’s easy to see how the Huskypoo (aka Huskydoodle and Siberpoo) came into being.
With the strikingly handsome looks of the Husky combined with the intelligence of the Poodle (and maybe even its wavy/curly/dense coat), it’s easy to see why this would be a choice for a doodle.
From the Poodle, the Huskypoo gets a penchant for agility; from the Husky, it gets energy and stamina. These pups often do quite well in athletics and sports and agility.

14. Chihuahua Husky Mix (Husky-Chi)
The Husky-Chi is a mix between two very different-sized and different kinds of dogs! These are quite unusual and rare. As you can probably guess, this pairing is not something that happens by any natural process. Instead, a Husky-Chi is created by artificial insemination and in-vitro fertilization.
Since Chihuahuas are too little to carry a Husky puppy, the mother is always a Siberian Husky, and the father is a Chihuahua. Another name for them is the Huskyhuahua!
These pups typically have the look of the Husky, but the size and stature of a Chihuahua and only weigh anywhere from 10-20 lbs. They will be guaranteed to have very strong personalities!
Owner’s Guide: Husky Chihuahua Mix
15. Wolf Husky Mix (Wolf Dog)
The wolf dog is exactly what it sounds like: a mix between a dog (Siberian Husky) and a wolf! As such, many states don’t allow wolf dogs to be owned by pet owners, and instead, these beautiful animals end up in a sanctuary.
They are often too wild from the wolf genes for any pet parent to handle in a typical home, but they are also too tame from their Husky genes to be introduced to wild wolf packs.
These animals are often quite large due to their wolf genes and can weigh anywhere from 75-155 pounds and get as tall as 33 inches high at the shoulders.
Owner’s Guide: Husky Wolf Mix
16. Malamute Husky Mix (Alusky)
Often confused for one another, the Siberian Husky and the Alaskan Malamute are two breeds that look quite alike but usually vary significantly in size. Both breeds were bred to work and help pull sleds. Where the Husky was bred for speed and stamina, the Malamute was bred for strength. As such, the Malamute is often quite a bit bigger than the Husky.
An Alusky can take after either the Husky or the Malamute, but they tend to be on the bigger side. Since they are working dogs, they will need lots of activity and stimulation to keep them busy! But don’t worry. These fluff balls will love a good cuddle session at the end of a long day.
Owner’s Guide: Husky Malamute Mix
17. Eskimo Husky Mix (Huskimo)
This breed, a mix between the Siberian Husky and the American Eskimo, can weigh anywhere from 40 to 60 pounds, so they are considered to be medium-sized dogs.
They are energetic, eager to learn, and smart, but they also can have a bit of an independent streak that can make them seem quite stubborn.
They also do great in colder and even harsh climates because of their double coat. But be ready because when springtime rolls around, these pups will shed like crazy to get rid of their winter coat!

18. Dachshund Husky Mix (Dusky)
A mix between the Siberian Husky and the Dachshund results in the Dusky! Dachshunds were originally bred as hunting dogs, believe it or not, so they have a high prey drive. Huskies, too, tend to have a high prey drive.
You’ll want to start training early to ensure you have a friendly pup who doesn’t live to chase the neighborhood squirrels or your other small pets!

19. Samoyed Husky Mix (Samusky)
These pups, a mix between the Siberian Husky and the Samoyed, can weigh in at about 45 to 60 lbs. Sometimes they’ll have a solid colored coat, or they’ll have more of a pattern like Huskies.
The Samoyed was actually originally bred to hunt reindeer for the nomadic Samoyed people. They were more than just hunters, though. They also slept tucked in next to their people to keep them warm in the freezing temperatures of northern Siberia, much like the Husky did for the Chukchi people!
Owner’s Guide: Samoyed Husky Mix
20. Boxer Husky Mix (Boxsky)
This breed, a mix between a Boxer and a Siberian Husky, will often have a muscular body much like its boxer parent, but chances are the husky characteristics like coat and color will shine through in this breed.
In truth, it is entirely unpredictable what a Boxsky pup will look like as it depends on the genetic makeup it gets from the parents. Some may look more Boxer than Husky, some may look more Husky than Boxer, and others may be a perfect blend of the two.

21. Belgian Malinois Husky Mix (Belusky)
This mix is going to weigh anywhere from 45 to 65 pounds and is sure to be the ‘goodest’ boy or girl as long as they get plenty of training and exercise!

23. Boston Terrier Husky Mix (Siberian Boston)
The small Boston Terrier and the medium to large Husky mixing together usually results in a small to medium-sized dog weighing between 20 to 40 pounds. They will often get the coat and color of the Husky but the size and stature of the Boston.
They are both social dogs and do best when they are with their people, so separation anxiety may be an issue. But with training, reassurance, and maybe even doggie daycare for extended separations, this breed can be an amazing family pet.

24. Australian Cattle Dog Husky Mix (Ausky)
This breed, a mix between the Siberian Husky and the Australian Cattle dog, is definitely fun and interesting and will keep you on your toes. Because of their herding instincts, they can get a little pushy and nippy, so training will be a must.
They tend to be independent but protective and stubborn but sweet. With training, many owners say they are well worth the effort!

25. Cocker Spaniel Husky Mix (Siberian Cocker)
The Siberian Cocker, a mix between the Siberian Husky and Cocker Spaniel, is a darling breed that typically weighs around 25 to 40 pounds. They often inherit the long, thick fur of the Husky but more of the tan and brown coloring of the Cocker.
They often have quite a distinct look with the long drooping ears of the Cocker Spaniel but the Husky face. They need lots of brushing as both breeds shed. They are intelligent, loyal, and, most of all, playful!

26. Great Pyrenees Husky Mix (Pyrenees Husky)
Here’s another floofball for the list! The Pyrenees Husky is a beautiful mix between the Great Pyrenees and the Siberian Husky. Instead of the typical all-white or mostly white coat of the Pyrenees, the Pyrenees Husky will have some more color to the coat. And their ears may or may not stand up.

27. Great Dane Husky Mix (Great Danesky)
The Great Dane Husky Mix makes for a big dog with a big personality. From the Great Dane side, you’ll get a dog with an even temperament who is eager to please. From the Husky side, you’ll get an energetic dog who is always ready to go.
Because the breeds vary so much in appearance, it can be difficult to predict what the pups will look like. However, most are somewhere in between the size of a Great Dane and a Siberian Husky, weighing around 60 to 90 pounds.

28. Bernese Mountain Dog Husky Mix (Bernsky)

A Bullsky Mastiff may just be a perfect mix combining the Bull Mastiff’s laid-back, easy-going nature and the Siberian Husky’s intelligence and energy.
Both parent breeds are known for being independent thinkers, so training may be a bit of a challenge. But the loyalty you’ll get in return will be well worth it. A Bullsky Mastiff will likely be a very large dog, weighing somewhere between 80 and 100 pounds.
Owner’s Guide: Bullmastiff Husky Mix
30. Greyhound Husky Mix (Greysky)

These dogs, as fun-loving as they are, can be a bit chaotic with their large size and immense energy!

Luckily, as much as they love to play, they equally love to relax, so you’ll find a great balance with this mix.
33. American Bulldog Husky Mix (American Bullsky)
The American Bulldog Husky mix is an all-star athlete. The American Bulldog was originally bred to be an all-purpose working dog and would do everything from herd farm animals, pull heavy carts, and guard their homes and herds.
Well-known for their strength, when combined with the athleticism of the Husky, you can be sure this will be a dog who needs a great deal of exercise and mental stimulation to keep them happy and healthy.
Despite their strong desire to work and play, they will still be more than happy to cuddle up after a long day.
34. Cane Corso Husky Mix (Cane Corsky)
The Cane Corso Husky Mix is another large mixed breed. The average Cane Corso can weigh anywhere from 90 to 110 pounds, so a mix between the two results in one big pup.
The Cane Corso and the Husky are two very different-looking breeds, so a mix between the two could be a total toss-up!
One pup in a litter might have the big, square head of the Cane Corso, with the fluffy Husky coat, while another could have the long, slender face of the Husky and the short fur of the Cane Corso. Either way, it’s sure to be one cute pup!
35. Shar Pei Husky Mix (Sharsky)
The Shar Pei Husky Mix is undoubtedly a dog with a mind of its own! Both parent breeds, the Shar Pei and the Siberian Husky, are notorious for being independent thinkers, stubborn, and intelligent. All of which can be a challenging combination when it comes to training.
It will take a lot of work, but with consistency, this mix makes an excellent family dog who is fiercely loyal to the people it loves.
36. Newfoundland Husky Mix (Newfoundsky)
Here is another large mixed breed for our list. The Newfoundland Husky mix will likely be a gentle giant and weigh around 100 pounds.
Newfoundlands are known to be gentle, well-mannered, and cuddly, and the Husky is full of energy and spunk so you’ll likely get a little bit of both with this mix.
37. French Bulldog Husky Mix (French Bullsky)
The French Bullsky is an adorable medium-sized mixed breed, likely weighing somewhere around 20 to 40 pounds, with a whole lot more personality to go along with it.
Since the parent breeds are so different from each other in their looks, it’s a genetic guessing game as to what each individual dog might look like.
Some may have the famous bat ears of the French Bulldog, while others may inherit ears more closely resembling the Husky ears. Moreover, some may have the shorter, stockier body of the French Bulldog, while others will be a bit taller and longer, like the Husky.
No matter what a French Bullsky looks like, it is almost certain that it will be an energetic, fun-loving dog!
38. Catahoula Husky Mix (Catahusky)
A Catahoula Husky mix will be sure to be a high-energy dog with a very unique look. Both parent breeds are known for their striking appearances, like the Husky’s beautifully patterned coat and blue eyes and the Catahoula’s leopard-like spots.
A mix between the two could produce pups that have one parent or the other’s traits, or they could be a perfect blend of both! Regardless of their looks, the Catahoula Husky is a hardworking, loving, and energetic breed that is always ready to have fun.
39. Shih Tzu Husky Mix (Shih Tzusky)
The Shih Tzu Husky mix is rather rare in practice but certainly makes for one cute dog! Shih Tzus are playful, outgoing, social butterflies who want nothing more than to sit on your lap and have you tell them how pretty they are!
A mix between a Shih Tzu and a Husky will likely result in a small to medium-sized energetic and playful lap dog.
40. Blue Heeler Husky Mix (Blue Heesky)
The Blue Heeler and the Siberian Husky are two of the most hardworking breeds around. Blue Heelers are also sometimes called Australian Heelers, Queensland Heelers, or more generally Australian Cattle Dogs.
They are tough, hardworking dogs who are known to be incredibly efficient at herding animals for ranchers and farmers.
But if a Blue Heeler Husky mix inherits the herding instincts of the Blue Heeler, they may have a tendency to become a little pushy and nippy.
In these cases, training will be important so that you don’t have a dog that is constantly pushing you around, telling you what to do!
41. English Bulldog Husky Mix (English Bullsky)
The English Bulldog Husky mix is another very unique-looking mixed breed to add to this list. The parent breeds look entirely different from each other, so it’s hard to predict, and it is always a surprise as to what a mix might look like.
In most cases, an English Bulldog Husky mix will be a medium-sized dog with a stocky build, much like the Bulldog.
It may have a short bulldog coat as well, or it may have the medium-length, thick double coat of the Husky. These are sure to be outgoing and loyal, loving family members.
42. Dalmatian Husky Mix (Damatsky)
A Dalmatian Husky mix is a medium-sized mixed breed that is sure to be fun-loving, intelligent, and athletic.
Though most famously known as many fire departments’ mascots, the Dalmatian has a long history of working all sorts of jobs, from being guard dogs to hunters to even being performers! They are sure to be beautiful dogs as well, thanks to their good-looking parents.
43. Rhodesian Ridgeback Husky Mix (Ridgebacksky)
Tall and muscular, the Rhodesian Ridgeback Husky mix is a strong-willed and intelligent dog who is sure to keep life interesting.
The Rhodesian Ridgeback parent will usually weigh in somewhere between 70 and 85 pounds, and the Siberian Husky parent will be between 45 and 60 pounds making for a mixed breed pup likely somewhere in the 65 to 80 pound range.
While it can be hard to predict what a mix between these breeds will look like, it is likely that it will be a tall and muscle dog when fully grown and will likely have a thick coat that is either short or medium in length.
It will likely also inherit the Rhodesian Ridgeback’s signature ridgeback – the section of fur that grows in a line down their back in the opposite direction of the rest of their fur.
Chances are, this mixed breed will be a fun-loving, athletic dog with a very unique look.
Are there Husky Mixes that don’t shed?
No, all Husky mixes shed. However, there are some Husky mixes that don’t shed as much as other Husky mix breeds. If the non-Husky parent is a low shedding dog breed, then the Husky mix is more likely to shed less.
Which Husky Mix Breed Is Your Favorite?
The possibilities are nearly endless for all the different crosses that can include the Siberian Husky! And who wouldn’t love the chance to get the best out of two different breeds, all in one pup?
There’s even something to be said about broadening the gene pool by cross breeding certain breeds in order to reduce the risk of common health concerns found in purebred dogs.
As you can probably tell, there are a lot of people who love the Siberian Husky just as much as we do and want to include the Husky characteristics with their other favorite breeds!
