Did you know that if you crossbreed a Siberian Husky and an Akita together, you’ll get the Huskita dog? This beautiful hybrid is a medium to large dog, standing between 22 and 25 inches tall and weighing between 50 to 75 pounds. They have a lifespan of ten to 13 years with proper care. To learn more about this dog breed, take a look at the Huskita photos shown below.
Huskitas have thick coats that are medium in length, thanks to both of their parent breeds. They can come in a few coat colors: white, black, cream, and tan. Since both parents have heavy coats and shed a considerable amount, Huskitas are certainly not hypoallergenic. They shed at a higher average than most other dog breeds. So, if you’re allergic to pet dander and fur, then this pooch, unfortunately, won’t be right for you. To keep the shedding as under control as possible and keep their coat clean, frequent brushing and trips to the grooming salon will be ideal.
An Active Dog
The Huskita bred will be great for active families. This pooch has high energy levels and loves having a job to do. So, they’ll enjoy going on hikes, jogs, and runs with you. In addition, they’ll be just as happy to run around in a fenced-in yard. They prefer to be the only pet, so trips to the dog park might be out. However, with proper training and early socialization, you might be able to take them to the dog park or doggy daycare once in a while.
Overall, Huskitas are loyal, intelligent and affectionate with their family members. Any family will be lucky to bring home this pooch.
