Goberian is a mix of the Siberian husky and the golden retriever. Golden retrievers are such beloved dogs they are good to cross breed with the huskies. The goberian retains some qualities from both dogs.
Alaskan huskies are a mix of the Siberian huskies and several other working breeds. They are bred for working dogs and can be larger than the purebred Siberian ones. These dogs can vary in color from solid black to solid white and many variations in between. Appearance is not important because these dogs are not a registered breed and not for show but work as we already stated.
The Siberian husky can be mixed with a White Arctic wolf too. This mix though can bring out the aggressiveness of the wolf with the characteristics of the husky. So wolf mixes tend to be controversial. This Husky Mix is not seen that often though.
The Siberian husky is also seen mixed with a German shepherd. With this mix you get a good watchdog because that is the German shepherd’s strongest point. The dog can also be energetic, loyal, vocal and quite attractive with these two breeds bred together.
