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."

Temperament and Personality

A Siberian Husky mixed with Pitbull takes after the high energy levels from its parents. Good-natured and affectionate, they are child-friendly and also perfect companions, always craving for attention. They detest being left alone for long-spans and could display destructive behavior in such cases.

In fact just like both its parents, the Husky-Pitbull mix are generally not wary of strangers, behaving with everyone in a cordial and friendly way, not alerting or alarming you about the presence of an intruder, thus lacking watchdog abilities. However, having said this, it has a loyal and protective instinct, similar to its parents, going out of its way to shield you if it senses that you are in some danger.

Your Pitsky is enthusiastic, often tending to jump upon people to display its affection or even during playtime. This is one of the reasons why you should supervise your kid’s interaction with them, mainly if they are too young.

Likely to inherit the Pit Bull’s aggressive nature, it might not share a comfortable rapport with other canines, particularly of the same sex. The Siberian Husky’s prey drive may also be present in the Pitsky, causing it to chase cats as well as other smaller animals that are on the move.

Care


Owing to their high energy and activity levels, the Husky Pitbull mix require plenty of exercise for a healthy physical and mental development. They are more suited for homes having a large yard or garden rather than small apartments. Try allotting about 2 hours in a day for their physical activity that may include a long walk, jog, or even hiking. Having the Siberian Husky as one of its parent, who are renowned for their escaping skill either by leaping off the fence or digging its way through the ground, take caution to leash your Pitsky well while taking it out on a walk. You should also dog proof your fence well and even add chicken wires with sharp edges at your fence’s base to prevent it from digging and escaping.
Its grooming needs vary by the coat that it has. A long husky-like coat would call for daily brushing while the shorter Pit Bull-kind coat would suffice with a weekly combing. Comb your Siberian Husky Pitbull Mix with a brush having short bristles to keep the coat soft and silky. Bathe it only when needed and also make it a routine to clean its ears as well as eyes, trim its nails and brush its teeth on a weekly basis to maintain overall hygiene.
Though a relatively healthy breed, the Pitbull and Husky mix might suffer from the problems its parents are afflicted with, the common ones being hip dysplasia, hypothyroidism, heart ailments, eye problems and allergies.

Training

Intelligent as its Pitbull and Husky parent, the Pitsky could be a little dominant and stubborn to like them, needing a firm taskmaster.

  • Socialize your Pitsky by taking it to dog parks and letting it interact with different canines since its puppyhood so that it may learn to coexist with them peacefully. Making them interact with people as well as taking them to new and exciting places would also help in minimizing their urge to escape if any.
  • Crate training the Pitsky puppies would benefit in keeping their separation anxiety in check. Acquaint them with the crate initially for a short span and gradually increase the duration. Keep their toys and belongings inside to make them feel comfortable. However, do spend quality time instead of leaving your Pitsky all by itself for the entire day, lest it might be disinterested towards its home and want to escape.
  • To eliminate its habit of jumping upon people in excitement, command training is a mandate. If he learns to follow a “Stop” or a “No” command, your dog could perhaps refrain from jumping on hearing your firm voice. You should also need to act firmly to make it realize that its approach is unacceptable. In fact, whenever your dog jumps on you the moment you reach home, do not ask it to get away, but try ignoring it. If it continues doing so walk away from it, in pursuit of getting your attention it would follow you. The moment it has its feet on the ground, change your behavior and pat or cuddle it. If you keep repeating the same thing, your dog would realize that to get your love he should not jump the moment you come, but behave desirably.

Feeding

Good quality dry dog food combined with a nutritious homemade diet is essential to keep your dog energized and healthy.

7 Facts about Pitbull & Husky Mix (A.K.A. Pitsky)

Last Updated on

Pitsky also known as Pitbull Husky MixPitsky is a cross of a purebred American Pitbull Terrier and a purebred Siberian Husky, also known as Pitbull Husky Mix. It’s a medium to large dog breed at about 16 to 25 inches tall, weighing between 30 to 80 pounds. Pitskie’s average lifespan is around 12 to 15 years.

However, a crossbreed is always full of surprises, so I’ve put together some interesting facts about Pitskies, to help you have a clear idea of what you’ll be dealing with once you bring this dog home.

1. You can’t know how your adult dog will develop

Just like her name tells us, a Husky Pitbull Mix is a crossbreed between a purebred American Pit Bull Terrier and a purebred Siberian Husky, or a hybrid Alaskan Husky. Generally, mixed-breed dogs tend to have moderate temperaments, but they can also inherit any of their parents’ characteristics, sometimes in unpredictable combinations.

When getting a Pitsky, this translates into:

  • no one can guarantee the size and appearance of your dog. Dogs from this crossbreed come in various sizes, as we mentioned above its generally between 16 and 25 inches (40.6cm – 63.5) tall and weighing from 30 to 80 pounds (13.5 – 36 kg). When you buy a puppy, you can’t know how large she’s going to grow.
  • your dog’s coat can be either short or long. If she looks more like her Pit Bull parent, she’ll have a short coat, which is easy to maintain and requires brushing once or twice a week. If she inherits the Husky’s appearance, you’ll have a dog with a thick and often harsh coat, that needs to be brushed once every two days. Colors also vary, but darker shades are usually more common among these dogs.
  • she could have hereditary diseases. Usually they’re healthy dogs. However, depending on her family history, as an adult your dog can develop a series of health conditions. Hyperthyroidism is the most common among both parent breeds, but she can also face allergies, eye problems, hip dysplasia and heart disease.

2. A Husky Pitbull Mix doesn’t like to be alone

These dogs are very attached to their owners, and they love spending time with their human families. It’s what everyone expects from a dog, but it also comes with a price. You should be aware that, once you have a Pitsky, you should organize your schedule to leave your dog home alone as little as possible. Otherwise, they have a tendency to develop depression, separation anxiety, destructive behavior, and eventually she’ll become aggressive.

If you know you’ll have to leave your dog all by herself a few hours every day, start crate training when she’s still young. By offering your dog a den of her own where she feels safe and protected, you can minimize the effects of loneliness and keep her safe when you can’t watch over her.

When you work long hours, make sure one of your family or friends can come over to spend time with your dog, or take her to a dog daycare where she can have some company.

3. A Pitsky is a good family dog

This dog loves to be around children of all ages. She’s playful, affectionate, and very loyal. When playing, she can become too enthusiastic, and even jump on you, but you’ll be able to control this behavior once you start training. If properly trained and socialized, she can also get along well with other pets, even if some of these dogs enjoy chasing a squirrel or a cat every now and then.

In most cases, a Pitsky is friendly with strangers, too. However, she won’t hesitate to react if you or your family are in danger. She’s not number one when it comes to great watchdogs, but I still find her strength and stamina intimidating.

4. Your dog will need obedience training

No matter what temperament she inherits, your Pitsky needs consistent training from an early age. Both her parent breeds can be hard to handle when they’re not properly trained, so besides housebreaking, you’ll have to teach her to obey. Luckily she’s intelligent, and always looking to please her owner, which gives you the possibility to train her by yourself.

Obedience training should start when your puppy is about 6-7 weeks old. Use positive reinforcement only to teach your dog how to follow your commands. She’s a fast learner, and you’ll see progress right from the first weeks. However, be consistent and firm, as these dogs tend to have strong personalities and she might try to become the pack leader in your home.

In some cases, Huskies tend to be stubborn and difficult to train and there’s a possibility your dog inherits this characteristic. If you don’t have any results with training, consider seeking help from a professional trainer.

5. Goodbye, couch! Hello running shoes

This dog will keep you in good shape.

A Pitsky needs to burn off her extra energy, and she has a lot of it, coming from two parents with high energy levels. Buy new and comfortable sports shoes, because you’ll have to give her at least two long walks every day, and some trips to the dog park several times a week. She’s also a good companion if you like running, jogging, or hiking.

These dogs love to play, whatever the weather:

Besides physical activity, your dog will also need mental stimulation. Combine obedience training sessions with entertaining dog games and scatter feeding, to keep your dog’s mind busy, so she doesn’t get bored. 15 minutes during which your dog has to stay focused on something will make her more tired than a long walk.

A Pitbull Husky Mix needs a yard where she can run and move freely. Without enough exercise, she’ll become hyperkinetic and she’ll make your house a mess, because she loves to chew. This makes her unsuitable for small apartments and owners with no free time.

6. Besides exercising, you should make time for grooming and cleaning

A Husky Pitbull Mix sheds all year round, no matter which parent’s traits she inherits. You’ll deal with hair all the time, with higher intensity during spring and fall, when it’s shedding season for both the Pitbull and the Husky. Consistent brushing can reduce the amount of hair, but you’ll still need a pet hair vacuum cleaner to keep your home clean.

Besides brushing, you should also take time to deal with her several other needs:

  • cleaning her ears once every two weeks,
  • trimming her nails, when needed,
  • brushing her teeth several times a week,
  • bathing her once every two months or when needed.

7. Pitskies are masters of escape

Most of these dogs inherit the Husky’s ability to find themselves a way out from any enclosure, so check your yard before bringing your Pitsky home. It’s not just about jumping – they can also dig holes under the fence, as both the Pitbull and the Husky are excellent diggers. If you have flowers or other plants in your garden, don’t give your dog free access to them. Otherwise you might lose everything as a result of her passion for digging.

Always use the leash when taking your dog outside, at least until you’re absolutely sure she’s trained well enough to return to your command, no matter what distractions are out there.

Conclusion

A Pitsky is a great choice for active families, thanks to her loyalty, cuteness, and mild temperament. Sometimes she can be stubborn, but I think this small issue can be solved with training, so I wouldn’t give up on such a great dog so easily.

3 PITSKY Facts You Didn´t Know - Mix Husky and Pitbull

Siberian Husky Pitbull Mix: Pitsky Breed Information, Puppies & More

Mixed breed dogs are no better or worse than a purebred dog, and there are lots of deserving mixed breeds that are waiting in rescue centers across the country.  There is also a growing trend in ‘designer’ dogs, a purposeful mix of two breeds.  In this article, we are going to look at the Pitsky, which is the husky pitbull mix.

While the Husky and the Pitbull are sometimes compared to one another, they make a fine mixed breed dog for dog owners that can’t choose between them. If you are buying a mixed breed dog, care should be taken to ensure you have selected a responsible breeder, and you should also consider whether the mix will be an appropriate fit for your lifestyle.

There are no guarantees on temperaments and characteristics with any dog, they are all individuals, and much also depends on how they are socialized and trained; but having an understanding of both of the breeds being crossed can help you get a better idea of what you may end up with.

Breed Histories

When referring to ‘Pitbull’ in this article, we are talking about the breed that is most commonly associated with this term;  the American Pit Bull Terrier.  When people refer to Pit Bulls, there are a number of breeds that are often lumped into the same category,  including Staffordshire Bull Terriers, the American Staffordshire Terrier and other bully breeds like English and American Bulldogs.

The name Pit Bull now often has unfortunate unfair negative stigmas attached to it, largely as a result of the fact that it relates to powerful breeds that have often been raised by irresponsible, and sometimes even cruel, owners that use them for fighting, or as a status symbol.

The American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT) was originally thought to be the same dog as the American Staffordshire Terrier or Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and these powerful dogs were used for bull baiting and dog fighting in the 19th century in the United Kingdom.

When some enthusiasts wanted to focus on developing them as companion dogs, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier became a specific breed in the 1930s, and the AKC recognized the American Staffordshire Terrier in 1972.

The American Pit Bull Terrier was never recognized as a breed in its own right by the AKC, but it has been by the United Kennel Club (UKC) and the Continental Kennel Club (CKC).

Responsible breeders now focus on developing their traits as affectionate people loving dogs, rather than the fighting dogs of days gone by.  Although the breed still has an unwarranted bad reputation amongst some circles, there is a growing awareness of their positive attributes, and they are becoming increasingly popular companion dogs.  They are also popular when being cross-bred with other pups, like the labrador.

Siberian Huskies have a radically different history.  They are often regarded as one of the most ancient dog breeds in the world.  Their more recent specific history links them to being bred to provide transportation and warmth and companionship for traditional tribes living in Arctic Siberia.

They were noticed by visiting Alaskans, and they then brought them into the United States in the early 20th century, and they continued to be used as sled dogs, in a working and competitive capacity.

The breed was registered with the American Kennel Club in 1930.  In the following decades, their popularity has slowly grown, and they are now considered to be one of the most popular breeds in America.  The AKC ranked them as the 14th most popular breed in 2018.

Huskies are also popular picks for other designer dog breeds like the huskador which is a husky mixed with a lab, the pomsky which is a pomeranian and husky mix, or even a Horgi which is when you cross a Husky with a corgi.

Appearance

As with any mixed breed, you could end up with a unique and quirky looking dog.  You can expect a medium to large-sized, muscular dog.  Both breeds are strong, with the APBT particularly so, they are both very athletic with plenty of stamina, and they tend to be in a similar weight range of around 35 to 60 pounds.

You are also not going to have a dog with a long coat that needs lots of grooming to keep mats and tangles at bay.  They will likely be shedders, though.  Huskies are notorious for excessive moulting with a very thick double coat, and although the APBT has a much shorter, single coat, they do still moult also.

Your Husky Pitbull Mix could end up an unusual coloring too.  Huskies tend to be grey and white, but they can also come in brown and white, sable and white, and red and white.  They are even sometimes purely black or white.

APBTs, on the other hand, come in an even wider selection of colors including black, white, fawn, brown, red, blue and brindle.

Personality Traits

A Husky Pit Bull Mix will generally be a breed that enjoys the company of humans.  They are both known for being affectionate with people, the APBT particularly so.

This breed is often referred to as the ‘Nanny Dog’ because they usually have a strong bond with their families, they act as protectors and comforters and, despite their size, they tend to be very tolerant and gentle with children.

It is always important to remember though that, even the most tolerant dogs should be allowed their own space, and children should behave appropriately around them.  Any dog can be pushed to their limits, and a bite from a breed with such powerful jaws could be devastating.

Dr Sophia Yin has produced a simple, clear and helpful infographic, along with some additional guidance for introducing dogs and children.

While Huskies are known for being generally very affectionate too, they are also often extraordinarily boisterous and sometimes even hyperactive.  If the mix has more husky characteristics, they may not be best suited to a home with young children, who they could easily accidentally knock over.

Both breeds usually have a strong prey drive and may not be best suited to a home with small furries.  Careful introductions and management may be required if you do want to try to have them living with cats.

Huskies are often referred to as the Houdinis of the dog world.  They are master escape artists and, if they want to roam, they have been known to scale 6-foot fences or dig under them with ease.  A very secure garden and careful supervision would be recommended.

The American Pit Bull Terrier, while usually very good with people, can sometimes be aggressive towards other dogs (a legacy from being bred to be fighters).

Sometimes they can be fantastic with dogs in their own house but not so good with dogs they don’t know, sometimes they may be best suited to living in an only dog household.  Early socialization and ongoing training can also make a big difference in terms of the likelihood of getting along with other dogs.

Neither breed is likely to make a good guard dog. Their general affection towards humans means they are more likely to want a cuddle from the mailman than to guard against him.

Training

Both breeds are known for being smart and quick to learn.  They both respond well to positive, force-free training methods.

Huskies are known for having a stubborn, independent streak though, so patience, consistency and ongoing training should be expected.

They are also a breed that is known for their desire to roam, and they generally don’t have the best recall.  If you do want to give them off leash freedom, then you will need to be prepared to put a lot of time into their recall training.  Some never get total freedom outside unless it is in a secure field or on a long line.  If this is the case, then you should make sure that they get extra long walks, lots of enriching sniffing opportunities, time to explore on a longer leash, and lots of training exercises.

The American Pit Bull Terrier is known as a breed that can suffer from separation anxiety if left for long periods regularly.  Because they bond so closely with their family members, they often struggle when left alone.  You may need to spend extra time building up the length of time they are left, and they should be provided with lots of enriching treat toys and given plenty of exercise to keep them tired – mentally and physically.

Both breeds, particularly the APBT, have strong jaws and are known for being chewers.  This is another reason why they need to be appropriately enriched, and they should have access to lots of very tough interactive chew toys.

If your Husky Pit Bull mix is not keen on other dogs, you may need to work on a counter conditioning and desensitization program to allow them to understand that other dogs mean good things and that they don’t need to feel threatened or scared of them.  It also teaches them that a less aggressive reaction will be rewarded.

You may also need to do some training to get them used to wearing a muzzle, in some States Breed Specific Legislation requires APBTs, and mixes of the breed, to wear one when out in public spaces.

Exercise

A Husky Pit Bull Mix will likely be best suited to a home that leads an active lifestyle.  Both breeds are known for being athletic, driven and high energy.  They are not generally going to be a dog that will be satisfied with one or two short walks around the block or to the local park.  This could end up leading to them being under-stimulated and, consequently, exhibiting problem behaviors.

Huskies are known for loving to run and are often involved in the competitive sport of Canicross (running with your dog pulling out front on a specially designed harness).  The APBT is no slouch either, and they make great competitive sports dogs too if they are given the opportunity.

Grooming

While this mix is not going to need expensive trips to a groomer for fancy haircuts, they are one that is likely to leave your home pretty hairy.  If they inherit the dense double coat of the Husky, you should be prepared for annual blow outs when hair gets everywhere.

During this time, they would benefit from a daily groom with an effective deshedding tool like the Furminator.  You will also need to keep on top of the vacuum cleaning.  Outwith molting season a good brush out a couple of times a week will likely be sufficient to keep the Pitsky’s coat and skin in good condition.

Health

Both breeds are generally known for being pretty healthy, although there are several inheritable conditions that each breed is associated with.

If you are buying a puppy, ideally you will want to find a breeder that has had mum and dad health checked to ensure that there is a lesser risk of these conditions being passed on.

Your Husky Pit Bull Mix could inherit conditions from either parent, and it is worth being aware of what some of the more common conditions they could be prone to are.

Husky Health

Eye Problems:  The breed is associated with a number of eye problems including cataracts (although this tends to be as they grow older and it is possible to correct this with surgery), corneal dystrophy (although it does not majorly impact on the quality of life), and Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA).  Although PRA does lead to eventual blindness, dogs can still live a very high quality of life if they are given the right support to help them adjust to this change.

Hypothyroidism:  An underactive thyroid is more commonly seen in huskies than in many other breeds.  This disease can be well managed with medication once it has been detected.  Signs that your dog may have this condition include rapid weight gain, a deterioration in skin and coat condition, and general fatigue.

Hip Dysplasia: This is a condition that develops as a result of the hip socket forming abnormally.  It usually gets progressively worse and, in serious cases, sometimes surgery is conducted to help increase movement and alleviate pain.

Pitbull Health

Skin Allergies:  The breed is particularly associated with problems with allergies and skin conditions.  They can be prone to developing Canine Atopic Dermatitis, and environmental allergies can aggravate this.  Usually, this is a lifelong condition that will require careful management to help minimize flare-ups occurring.  This can include regular medicated baths, use of special allergy sweaters when out on walks, and eliminating potential allergens from the immediate environment.

Allergy testing is becoming more widespread, but most dermatology specialists recognize that the results are often inaccurate or inconclusive.  In severe cases, hyposensitization therapy can be performed by a specialist vet to try to eliminate the allergic reaction.  This involves your dog being injected with the suspected allergen in tiny doses regularly over some time to help them develop immunity.

Like the Husky, the APBT is also associated with developing hip dysplasia and hypothyroidism.

Nutritional

All dogs, no matter the type, should be fed a high quality and appropriately portion-controlled diet, and a Husky Pit Bull Mix will be no exception.

If they are an extremely active dog, possibly involved in dog sports like Canicross, then an extra effort should be made to ensure that their food provides them with enough calories and appropriate nutrients for their lifestyle.

Finding a Half Husky & Half Pitbull Mix

It is a sad fact that Pit Bull and Pit Bull mixes are one of the most common dogs to be found in rescue shelters across the country.  This is in part due to the number of people that take them on for the wrong reasons, and also in part due to the unfair stigmas that surround them, and, of course, because of Breed Specific Legislation placing restrictions and rules on ownership.

Don’t overlook these dogs in the shelter though, their loyal, affectionate natures mean APBTs, and mixes of them,  can make wonderful family pets if given the right home, training and socialization.

If you are buying a puppy, while there are no accredited registered breeders for Husky Pit Bull Mixes, it is vital that you do your research.

The increase in demand for unusual crossbreeds means that there are plenty of unscrupulous backyard breeders and puppy mills out there looking to make a fast buck.  Dogs are often kept in horrendous conditions, without proper socialization, health care or even the right basic nutrition.

Always make sure that you get to see pups with their mum in a safe, home environment.  Don’t agree to meet someone in a car park to pick a puppy up!

Your pup should be at least eight weeks old and fully weaned before they get to come home to you, and they should have had a vet check and paperwork from there to confirm their age.

Final Thoughts

If you are looking for a dog that will enjoy leading a very active lifestyle and will be steadfastly loyal and affectionate with their family, then the husky pitbull mix could be the right dog for you. They may not be best suited to a home with young children given their potential strength and exuberance.

You may also have to be prepared to put in extra work on training, particularly when it comes to recall.

While your Husky Pit Bull Mix could get on well with other dogs, you should be prepared to make careful introductions, and they may be best suited to being the only dog in the household for you to shower all your affection onto.
