Is the Border Collie / Alaskan Husky Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
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 Border Collie / Alaskan Husky Mix is a cross between a pure Border Collie and an Alaskan Husky, 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.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. In this case, the appearance of your pet could be very different depending on whether the Collie or the Husky traits dominate.

Behavior / temperament:
While both of these breeds are highly regarded for their working ability and their intelligence, there's probably a reason people seldom make this mix. The sensitivity of the Collie, combined with the willfulness of the Husky, could make for an animal too challenging for the average dog owner. You must know how to establish yourself as a consistent alpha without harming the dog's trust in you.
