Lugz the Pitbull / Husky mix at 10 months old. "This is Lugz a ten month old Siberian Husky crossed with a blue Pitbull. Both parents are purebreds. He weighs in at 62 pounds with a 22 inch neck and 21 inch head. Lugz also rarely barks, loves children, has never bitten and plays well with other dogs of all sizes. He is an extremely good listener and does not wonder. He does a very good job guarding the house. He likes to chase deer and runs at very high speeds for long distances. He loves the cold and doesn't mind the heat. He needs at least 2 hours of playtime every day to keep him from getting the urge to dig. He loves fresh red meat."

Description

The Pitsky is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the American Pit Bull Terrier and the Siberian Husky or Alaskan 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.

He is usually very calm and never aggressive other than during play. He weighs 80 pounds and measures 45 inches from nose to tail."

Jaxx the blue-eyed Siberian Husky / Pit Bull Terrier mix (Pitsky) at 3 years old—"We came across Jaxx by way of Craigslist. He was actually free, so we had our doubts. Upon meeting his parents we soon learned that they were packing up and headed North for a new job opportunity. We had replied to the posting immediately, and headed over to their home as soon as we got off the phone. When Jaxx was brought around the house, he made a dash for my boyfriend. It's been a bond beyond compare since! Jaxx is of great temperment, other than his occasional tendency to be excited and jump on people. He is very well behaved with other dogs, even the tiny ones, and loves social interactions with dogs, children, and adults. He gets along extremely well with our cat, whom we got shortly after Jaxx. Jaxx has a lean, muscular figure, and his hair is natural. He tends to eat throughout the day, but doesn't over indulge. He doesn't bark, unless asked to speak, and was crate trained when we received him. He loves his toys, and has plenty of them! Jaxx was actually reproduced by accident from what his family told us. His mother, purebred Pit, had dug under the outside crate into the neighboring one where Jaxx's dad, a purebred Husky, was awaiting her. His mother died after giving birth. I believe there were only three puppies that survived. It is very sad, but we are so lucky to have him!"

"This is a picture I took of my 8 month old Siberian Husky / Pit Bull mix, Molly. Molly was a shelter dog that we rescued when she was about 3 months old. She is a little shy/skiddish when she first meets people, but she warms up quickly. With dogs, however, she's automatically their best friend. She loves playing with other dogs. Molly has a very hyper/active temperment. She can run around for hours and still be ready for anything. Her favorite toy is any kind of stick and she loves to fetch sticks or jump for them if you hold them up high. For awhile, she wouldn't bark, but now she talks any time she wants attention. One cute quirk that she has is how she barks, though. It's like she has to work up to it and she'll make these little throaty barks. As far as bad habits go, she is a digger. She also likes to chew a lot and most of the chew toys she gets she tears up within hours. Not only does she get a lot of exercise but she needs a lot too. All in all, Molly is a great dog and such a sweetheart. I've never used Bark Busters and while I've watched a few episodes of the Dog Whisperer, but I've never used his philosophies to train Molly."

Bella the Pitbull / Husky mix puppy at 2 months old—"This is Bella, our Husky / Pit mix. She is about 2 months old now. She is an amazing dog. Very smart and adorable as you can tell by the pictures! I firmly believe that mutts/mixes are better dogs then purebred and she is no different. She is smart and very playful."
