Information About The Mixed Breed Standard Husky Pitbull
The husky pitbull blend, also called the Pitsky, is an average to high energy crossbreed. As the name suggests, the Pitsky is essentially a cross between an American Pitbull Terrier or Alaskan or Siberian Husky and a smaller dog breed such as the Husky. This extremely energetic and eager-to-please breed is ideal for people who are not home much because they love to run around and play. This energetic mix can run up to 15 miles per hour, making it an excellent choice for dog owners who are active outdoors. This breed is very friendly and calm, making it ideal for families with children and other pets.
The cost of adopting this crossbred is higher than other purebreds. This is due primarily to the over-breeding of the dogs to produce the Pitsky. Because this particular mix is more susceptible to illnesses and health problems than purebreds, breeders will often pay more for a purebred Husky Pitbull to avoid paying the high costs of caring for another breed of dog. Because of the high cost, only those who can afford it should consider getting a hybrid.
Hybrid Huskies have two parents that are Husky and have mixed blood.
They can be more vulnerable to certain illnesses because of this heritage. However, most of them are healthy. Still, you should consider if a hybrid Husky is right for you. First, you should determine if your lifestyle is suited for this breed. This includes whether you are living in an area with cold winters or hot summers.
The third reason to adopt a husky mix is due to their temperament. Most purebreds are just like any other dog. They have their good qualities and their bad qualities. A Husky Pitbull, however, has been selectively bred to have more desirable traits.
Hybrid Huskies were created by crossing Siberian Huskies with any number of other breeds. They were created as a means to create a companion for the elderly couple. Many times they are used as guard dogs or as service dogs for those with disabilities. They can be affectionate, friendly, gentle, intelligent, and beautiful all at the same time.
Since they are the offspring of different parent breeds, they should be checked out by a veterinarian for a complete physical exam and blood work.
Breeders are responsible for providing the necessary vaccinations for the purebred. If they do not provide the needed paperwork for the animal, then the pet owner must decide to see the vet. If the breeders do not pass this inspection, then the dog could have health issues that could be dangerous.
The American Kennel Club (AKC) rates purebreds as “A++”, but most organizations grade them on a “B” through “C”. A “C” pit bull will have no significant behavioral issues, but they may still display some behavior related to their parents or breed. Breeders that only have AKC breeders listed on their site are not legitimate businesses. Anyone interested in owning a husky pitbull should also look to see if the Siberian husky breeder is registered with the American Kennel Club.
Huskies have a strong prey drive, but they do not need constant exercise. They are very friendly animals that do well when they are adopted by caring owners who know how to best care for them. Pit Bulls that are mixed will need to be socialized as a puppy and through their early years, should be exposed to many people and various activities. Pit Bulls do not require any special care, but with adequate training, owners can have healthy, behaviorally appropriate mixed pit bulls.
