What is an Ausky?
The Ausky is a mix between an Australian Shepherd and a Siberian Husky. They can also be called an Australian Shepherd Husky mix, Aussie Siberian and an Aussie Husky.
The cross breed have existed for around 20 years or so.
An Australian Shepherd Husky mix can be the result of deliberate or accidental breeding between the two purebred parents.
When trying to figure out the personalities of Auskies, we need to take a look at the temperaments and traits of both parents.
Australian Shepherds originated in the mountainous regions between France and Spain. They ended up in Australia in the 19th century with Basque farmers. After some time Down Under, these Basque Ranchers moved to California where the Australian Shepherd breed surged in popularity.
These herding dogs have an innate instinct to guard and herd. They’re described by the American Kennel Club as “animated” and “attentive”. Aussie Shepherd are also a “high-energy, athletic dog”.
Siberian Huskies are sled dogs that originated in the northern region of Russia called Siberia. They didn’t arrive in Alaska, USA until the start of the 20th century.
They like to be in the company of other dogs and humans given their association with the nomadic people of Chukchi before Siberian Huskies became famous sled dogs during the Gold Rush.
