I Have a three month old German Shepherd/Siberian Husky. He is a male. I got him off a friend who couldn't keep him because he was moving. I'd like to learn more about his breed. I've learned he is very playful and energetic. But that's just about all I know.

I have 2 Siberian Huskies. Rowdy a 10 yr old Male and Abby a 9 yr old female. They both have totally different personalities but somethings just come with the breed. They have to have exercise. A huskies favorite exercise is a good walk or run. Most Huskies are escape artist, so a good fence is a must. Never leave them off leash unless they are in an enclosed area.

They are bred to be nomads, so they may consider their home but to be 50 sq miles. Which is why so many end up in shelters. Also they don't like to be made to do anything. They will hauler like you are killing them if you make them do something they don't want too (like at the vets).

Most huskies will sing (howl) a couple times a day. Mine very seldom bark, but they are very vocal. Especially, when they are hungry. They have been great company the last 10 years and I couldn't image my life without them. Hope this helps.

I have a German Shepherd/Husky mix. She is approximately 12 months old, her body is very long and when she sits she seems to shift her weight to the side so her front paws touch the floor. When will her frame be full size as now her front and back legs are the same length and this isn't normal?

At twelve months your large breed dog will appear thin and gangly. The nutrition in her food is going to her rapid frame development.

Shepherds are not mature until the age of two or three depending on bloodline. Huskies are not mature until two.

Huskies hit a major growth spurt at around 15 to 18 months.

Most large breeds will "fill out" between two and three years of age.

Would anyone recommend the German Shepherd/Husky mix as a service dog? I am getting information so I can decide what type of dog to get my mother. The dog has to be patient and strong since it will be needed for strength. My mother has balance issues so having a dog that is strong so it can help her get up is a big plus. Also, the dog has to be good with cats. She has 2 who are not very young. One is 4 yrs and the other is 9 yrs. Plus, I live there with my daughter who is 12. The dog has to realize that she is to be my mother's companion and strength when I am not there.

To be a true service dog, they have to go through specialized training. You can't just get a dog and train it yourself. Does your mother use a walker that should take care of her issues. There are also other aids for assisting people to arise, etc. Check with a store that sells medical aids, like lift chairs, walkers, etc.

A service dog is carefully chosen as a puppy and then receives extensive training (many months) by professional trainers. To expect a dog you buy, no matter what the breed, to perform these tasks will lead to a lot of disappointment. Many breeds become service dogs, but as I said, they are carefully chosen based on their temperament. An untrained dog cannot do what you are expecting of it.

Is the German Shepherd Husky mix good with kids and other dogs?

Hi,

We had one when I was a teenager - he was all around great! - very smart, loyal, protective - the best!

It really depends on how a dog is raised, socialized early on, allowed to hang out with other dogs, people, cats, etc.

If you treat him like family, he will love you like family. Every dog is different, but they all start out as good - the rest is up to you : )

Bella 2 1/2 months old and a Husky/German Shepherd. I got Bella from a friend, who was rescued from abusers. While in the womb, abusers kicked mommy puppy. She lost many puppies. When born, they kicked her to. My friend saved the mom and puppies, and found homes. I finally got Bella around 2 months old, learning she has a hernia because of the abuse. It doesn't hurt her, thank God.

Bella loves to search and find things as well as playing with her bear. She loves to chase things and is not scared of a little dirty water. Bella loves to be outside. She loves the cats. She also love to swim. After a long day of having fun, she loves to enjoy a belly rub and a little relaxation music by Lifehouse. Any other music artist, she'll run away to sleep under my bed. While we are half asleep on my bed, we tend to share some "bacon" together.She also loves to sleep with her bear. Pics are in my profile. (she gets little pieces of bacon bacon, the doggie snack. and I get real bacon). She is 2 1/2months old and knows how to sit, give paw, stay and come. She is potty trained. She is very, very smart

He is an absolute smart dog and very active. His favorite activities are walking/running the beach where we live and playing in the sand.

His two different colored eyes make Malakai very unique. We are very happy we found this little guy. He is a joy to our family. Already Malakai has shown a lot of respect and faithfulness to my family. What a terrific pup he is!

Gemma is a 10 month Siberian Husky/German Shepherd mix. We bought her from an ad in the paper at 6 weeks old. We wanted a shepherd cross and thought it was an interesting mix. She loves to swim anywhere (beach, lake, dam), run, chase sticks and rough play. Gemma is extremely intelligent, happy, playful and energetic.

Our dear friend had one pup left and offered him to us to adopt. Sampson loves to sit on the steps leading up to our patio and oversee everything that goes on. He also sleeps on the foot of my daughter's bed at night. He likes to run laps around our front yard with our other dog, Bruno.
