|Much to contrary belief, the Labrador Husky is not a mix between a Labrador and a husky. It is however a Canadian purebred dog that resembles a wolf, sharing significant family ties as well as many of the same characteristics.|
The Labrador Husky is a little smaller than the Alaskan Malamute but larger than the Siberian Huskies. This strong and fast dog breed has a high endurance level as well as large in size. Boasting a large head with a long muzzle, these muscular dogs can weigh up to 100 pounds and are usually around 20-28 inches in height. Their fur is also thick and double coated, which aids in their survival in the rough, frigid climates. Labrador huskies come in a variety of colors, such as white, black, white and black, red and white, grey and white, and rarely, even wolf grey. Utilized for transportation means for many years, the Labrador Husky is now mainly kept as house pets as well as participants in dogsled races. The Labrador Husky needs to be taken on jogs and long walks daily. While walking a Labrador Husky, it is important to remember that the owner needs to be ahead of the dog. The Labrador Husky should be beside or behind the owner because in the dog’s mind the leader leads the way, and in order for the owner to continue to stay in control of the dog, it needs to lead the way.
As for their personality, Labrador huskies are known to be unfriendly and even aggressive towards strangers. However, this can be fixed through early socialization. Labrador Huskies are seen happier when they are placed with other dogs because they are a dog breed that tends to work well in packs. Though it barely barks, it does from time to time howl, further illustrating its close relation with the wolf.
