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 pairing between an Alaskan Husky and a Norwegian Elkhound isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Alaskan Husky / Norwegian Elkhound Mix is going to be recognizable as a Spitz-type dog.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, this cross of two Spitz-type dogs is going to give you a double dose of the Spitz dog personality. Know how to be a consistent alpha and provide something interesting for your mix to do.
