There is no denying that Siberian Huskies are some of the most beautiful dogs in the world.
They have beautiful, soft coats, a piercing stare, and loyal personalities that help them stand out greatly from other dog breeds.
Some people even describe them as ‘simply enchanting’, and it isn’t hard to see why.
The qualities possessed by Siberian Huskies have led them to be a very popular choice throughout the years, especially when it comes to cross-breeding.
When bred into other breeds, the husky can make plenty of ‘designer dog’ options for every type of dog owner.
Check out this list of seven Siberian Husky Cross Breeds to see if they could be your next canine companion!
Horgi (Siberian Husky x Corgi)
Huskies aren’t exactly described as cute. However, when bred to a Corgi, they are absolutely adorable! Known as a Horgi, these dogs are medium-sized with tiny legs, a huge heart, and the piercing stare of the Husky.
Also known as a Siborgi or Corgsky, these canines are a great alternative for people who love Huskies but think they may be a little too big for their lifestyle and needs. Usually, a Horgi dog will only weigh between 20-50 pounds on average. These dogs are known for being very alert and energetic with a very positive disposition.
They make great family dogs as they are very loyal and smart. If you want these dogs to be particularly good with children, consider socializing them early and providing them with the proper training.
Huskita (Siberian Husky x Akita)
Two beautiful dogs bred into one, what more could you want? If you think a large dog would settle well into your life, this could be the option for you. Beware, the Huskita breed often weighs between 70 and 120 pounds.
These dogs are very strong and independent. It is important not to take this personally as sometimes it can be seen as detached or distant when it is really them being independent and showing you that they are the ideal dog to protect your family. Realistically, they are very loyal and devoted dogs, they just need space sometimes.
The Huskita should only be purchased by experienced dog owners who are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure that their dog knows they are the pack leader. You need to be able to provide consistent and firm training to avoid any undesirable behaviours. While we don’t think they are an aggressive breed, they need to be socialized correctly to ensure that they can distinguish between friendly visitors and potential threats.
Gerberian Shepsky (Siberian Husky x German Shepherd)
Being a combination of a Siberian Husky and a German Shepherd, this mix looks strong like a wolf and has a very brave spirit. Also known as the Siberian Shepherd and Husky Shepherd, the Gerberian Shepsky is a muscular dog with a very striking appearance.
As a dog that you don’t see often, this mix is destined to turn heads wherever you go. These dogs are clever, hard-working, and flourish when they are in an environment in which they are provided with plenty of mental and physical stimulation. They are very driven to be an alpha which means that they need to be monitored when around other dogs.
As an owner, you must command their respect for a respectful relationship.

Boxsky (Siberian Husky x Boxer)
There are many boxer cross-breeds out there, but the most loveable must be the Boxsky. However, you must know that these dogs can be very active and quite the handful sometimes. They are full of stubbornness and have a big ego at times.
These dogs will need a confident pack leader to fully flourish and need a strong hand while in training. Otherwise, they may exhibit a very strong-headed and sometimes naughty nature. They often weigh up to 75 pounds and will need a lot of exercise to remain busy.
This breed requires a devoted family who often socializes them to make them a loving and committed companion.
Ausky (Siberian Husky x Australian Cattle Dog)
The Ausky, a cross between the Siberian Husky and Australian Cattle Dog, is a very agile and energetic athlete. This is a very vocal breed that will sing, whine, howl, and even talk if you encourage them to! This breed is extremely entertaining and will provide hours upon hours of fun every single day.
However, with this breed, you must consider all of the implications of the behaviour you encourage. This is because once it becomes a habit, it is extremely hard to suppress. Sometimes, it is actually impossible.
This breed is not quiet and will require intensive exercise every day so they will need a large outdoor area and lots of exercise.
Pomsky (Siberian Husky x Pomeranian)
The popularity of the Pomsky began all the way back in 2011. This designer dog breed is still in hot demand years and years later with them becoming more common in everyday life. While they aren’t as small as the internet suggests, they do make a very nice medium-sized dog.
Most often, they weigh between 20 and 30 pounds. This breed absolutely loves being the direct centre of attention at all times. Sometimes, they are even considered a stubborn breed that required firm training that is consistent. This lively breed is great for people who like the look of huskies but need a smaller dog.
Siberian Retriever (Siberian Husky x Labrador Retriever)
This designer breed is an intelligent mix of two very popular breeds: The Labrador Retriever and the Siberian Husky. This breed is rather large and stoic which is why so many people like them as guard dogs. They usually favour either the Husky or Labrador in appearance.
These dogs are the ideal family pet as they have a very loving disposition and family-friendly nature due to their trainability and obedience. They also make the best first-time dog for a new dog owner. The only downside of this breed is that they can often suffer from separation anxiety and will develop undesirable habits.
These habits can include barking and destructive behaviours if they become bored. You will need to provide these dogs with consistent training for the very best canine companion you could imagine.
