What is the best environment for Siberian Husky and German Shepherd Dog Mixes? Here is advice from the ThriftyFun community.
We live in the valley, too. Everything we have read has told us not to shave long haired breeds in the summer, so we haven't. She has a doggie door and comes in whenever she wants and always has fresh water available. Valley fever is a threat here to pets and humans, but it can be successfully treated with anti-fungal medication. I am sorry to hear about the dog above who got ill.
Our veterinarian told us when we bought Lucy that this mix is extremely intelligent and he was right. They can just about learn anything very quickly. I'd almost bet you could teach one to drive a car!
I just wanted to post a pic of our beauty we rescued from our local humaine society. Her name is Jewel and she is a holy terror, but we love her to bits!
My buddy got me a connection to one of these beautiful dogs, and I've been in love ever since. My pup Izzie is about 5 months now. She was the runt of the litter but she already weighs about 40 lbs. I agree with everyone else - these dogs need plenty of space to run and play, but they are one of the most intelligent dogs ever. At 5 months, Izz already knows sit, stay, lay down, and shake. She is also potty trained, crate trained, and knows what is hers to chew on and what isnt. She is also incredible affectionate. I get a huge welcome every time I come home. :] I live in TN, so I'm a bit worried about the heat to come in the summer, but as of right now, she's perfectly happy.
I have a 1 yr old male Husky/German shepherd mix. I know both parents of my boy Oscar. Dad was 110lbs German Shepherd. I want to breed him so I can have a son of his. Please let me know if you're interested. He is 85lbs @ 1yr. Big boy and smart and a lover! Please e-mail me @ dollfinn63 AT yahoo.com. I am in Orlando.
I just had to mention that I saw on this that someone feeds their dog grapes and recommends it as a treat. Do NOT do this! Grapes/raisins are toxic to dogs and cause severe illness if enough is ingested, including renal failure. I have no idea why so many people think it's ok but it is not.

@ mhmmmkatysrad. Your puppy resembles mine! Here's a picture of him with his German shepherd/husky mix Dad 'Samson'. His Dame was also a German shepherd/husky mix yet they looked so different. Say hi to 'Wolfie' :-) To back up what everyone else has said, he's mega intelligent and has already learned more than 6 tricks at age 11 weeks. He goes in moods, sighing if he doesn't get your undivided attention, and wakes me up in the morning by placing his head under mine, flipping me up and then lying on the pillows haha. Amazing dog
I had been traveled to another town by the underground, the train and the bus to buy Renji for 100$. His mother is the Shepherd from the military kennel, and his father is the blue eyed black-and-white Siberian Husky. Renji don't like to bark, likes to play with the ball, to jump over the barriers, to swim and likes snow. He's socialized with other dogs and all transport, he likes children and all people very much (so he can't protect me at all) and is very obedient, always walks off leash (where it's allowed) and never run away like purebred Huskies. Now he's 2.5 years old.
We have a 13 week old German Shepherd Siberian Husky, Dasha. According to our trainer, she's a pup with an attitude! We have to take different approaches to training with her as she finds all of the usual training methods humorous and almost laughs at us as we try to correct her bad behavior.
She's learning to respect us, though, and knows many commands already! She loves to test people that watch her for us. She'll do things with them she never does with us! And if she gets away with it, even once - she'll do it over and over and over. She's too smart for her own good.
We take her on at least 3 walks a day, she already fetches her ball, and she loves going out to pet stores. She wants to jump into everyone's lap and say "Hi!." She's a lot of work, but we love her to death and are willing to put the time and effort into her to make her into a wonderful dog. We live in Colorado, so we're hoping she'll enjoy camping and hiking up 14,000 foot mountains with me and my husband!
Hi, This is Jake :)
I am living in Spain (from the UK) and I rescued this big guy a couple of months ago! He's now 9 months but this picture was taken about a month ago! He's huge and keeps growing FAST! I was told at the pound, he was a German Shepperd mix. I came across some German Shepperd/husky cross pics and couldn't help but notice some of them looked like his long lost brother or sister. What do you guys think?
Northern breed Dogs should never live in sub-tropical climates.
Oliver was 12 years old and suffered a stroke 2 years ago. As know and prone to developing hip problems in shepherds Oliver too suffered hip problems yesterday he wandered off our 29 acres I presume die in peace as some dogs are inclined to do. He did not partake of a final meal. He just said his goodbyes and left us. I wept like a baby and still am. I miss him immensely. I'll not replace him, as he was more than a companion but rather a very loyal and trusted friend. Goodbye my friend, my Oliver.
