"We bought Nikki from the same breeder as our previous dog Cosmo. Cosmo was 155 pounds of pure joy. We were devastated when he got sick, did everything we could to save him. He passed July of 2011. Nikki's breeder says he is a low-content wolfdog. mom being a 100% wholly Husky and dad being a wolf / Malamute. We picked up Nikki last August, and the breeder discounted his price to $1,000. We gladly paid it, thinking that we were getting a low-content wolfdog. Cosmo was a dream animal and there was no hesitation. Shortly after bringing Nikki home I proudly posted his pictures on the wolfdog Facebook sites I had stumbled upon. I was blown away that the experienced wolfdog owners phenotyped and stated that Nikki was a beautiful dog and there was no wolf. I posted pictures of Cosmo as well, again a beautiful dog. I have educated myself and others on misrepresentation. I am not sorry I have this animal; he is perfect for my family. He is healthy, gorgeous, and super smart. We have started taking him to outdoor fairs and farmer’s markets. Every time someone asks if he is wolf, we tell them no and try to educate on wolfdogs. So, here is Nikki, my stunning designer dog."
The Alusky is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Alaskan Malamute and the Siberian Husky. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
