Species group: Mixed Breeds
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.
The first generation Alaskan Husky / Chow Chow Mix is a cross between a pure Alaskan Husky and a pure Chow Chow, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This isn't a common mix, but you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue. Get to know the dog in question before you adopt, as this particular mix is likely to present some challenges for most people.
Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but the cross of Alaskan Husky and Chow Chow is likely to result in a good-sized "fluffy" looking dog that may look more huggable than it really is.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the Alaskan Husky / Chow Chow Mix will almost certainly demand a consistent owner who knows how to be the alpha.
