About the Alusky
The Alusky is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Alaskan Malamute and the Siberian Husky. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Alusky is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

Be the first to describe the appearance of the Alusky
Aluskies are quiet but they are very outgoing and loving to people especially to children. They are very laid back and extremely good with other dogs and cats. They can be stubborn, and may become destructive when left alone. They like to chew when bored. They are loyal and they love to run and interact with their owners. It's a good idea to start socializing them with humans and other dogs from birth to make sure they have a pleasant disposition. They are loyal and their character is a mix between the Husky and Malamute. Further research into those breeds will help explain possible mixes of temperament.
The Alusky is prone to hip dysplasia.
Most coats require little to no maintenance. They shed twice a year like the Siberian Huskie and the Alaskan Malamute. If an Aluskie lives inside, seasonal brushing is recommended. No other grooming is truly needed.
They need space to run and play. If a yard isnít available, several leash walks a day are recommended. They are able to jump high, dig deep and fit through small spaces. They are true escape artist. A 6 foot fence is recommended.
