German Shepherd and Husky mixes are the doggies you never knew you wanted but will always be glad that they exist. Here are some of the main things you have to expect from this glorious combination of sheer awesomeness.
German Shepherd and Siberian Husky mixes are some of the most beautiful doggies you will ever lay your eyes on. This is largely due to the eyes and coat characteristics both of which we will get into shortly. However, it is also as a result of the beautiful blend of traits from both of these equally beautiful breeds.
Like both parents, Shepskies will have erect ears. However, their size and shape vary based on genetics and sheer chance. The rest of the facial features are generally unremarkable with the dog quite literally looking like a perfect blend of both original parent dog breeds.
Coat type and markings
Shepskys will have dense coats that may either be long or medium, again, based on the parent’s features. What is the most interesting thing about their coats are the colors and markings.
German Shepherd and Husky mixes are the most eclectic bunch when it comes to designer pups. They come in a wide variety of colors that are usually combinations of 2 or 3 colors. They may also inherit the husky’s white snout mask, the shepherd’s black snout mask, or they may even lack any snout markings at all.
There is something quite enchanting about a German Shepherd’s dark, beautiful features and a Siberian Husky’s piercing, blue or grey eyes. Even when the doggy has brown eyes, they are still quite beautiful especially with the coat color combinations to complement the aesthetic.
Something else that makes the German Shepherd Husky mix good is the fact that there is a lot of variety in terms of size. If you want a smaller and more compact pooch, you can get something as small as 40 to 45 pounds with the pups in this case being bred from medium-sized huskies and shepherds. You could also get a larger mix weighing up to 90 pounds or more in which case the parents were most likely also quite large.
