The Alusky is a hybrid produced by crossing the Alaskan Malamute and Siberian Husky. This mix produces a breed notable for being energetic, friendly, loyal, loving and, of course, stunning. Alusky puppies should be trained early and firmly to see the owner as the pack leader and are sometimes not recommended for first-timers. They are best suited to active owners or families that live in cold to seasonal climates. Alaskan Malamute x Siberian Husky mixes often have too much energy and are too large for apartments; they should have securely fenced yards as they are notorious fence jumpers. These are friendly to other canines, strangers, and often even cats (if raised with them). Aluskies are fairly healthy and should live 10-15 years. Owners should research the similarities and differences between the Malamute and Husky to understand more about this breed.
