The Chusky is a mixed breed dog — a cross between the Chow Chow and Siberian Husky dog breeds. Curious, headstrong, and loving, these dogs inherited some of the best qualities from both of their parents. Chuskies go by several different names, including Chow Husky, Husky Chow, and Chowski. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed-breed dogs in shelters and breed specific rescues, so remember to adopt! Don’t shop! These adorable, fluffy dogs are intelligent and somewhat stubborn, which doesn’t make them ideal matches for novice owners. They can also grow very protective of their owners and make excellent watch dogs. If you want a smart dog who enjoys training, lots of exercise, and of course, lots of cuddles, then the Chusky might be the right dog for you.

Highlights

The Chusky is a mixed breed dog. They are not purebreds like their Chow Chow or Siberian Husky parents.The main colors of Chuskies are brown, black, cream, red, and white. Sometimes their coats are solid, and sometimes they have a mix of colors.Their fluffy, long, double-coats make the Chusky a heavy shedder. They may not be the best dog for allergy sufferers. Daily brushing will help cut down on excessive shedding. Their coats are suited for cold weather, but they may not do as well in hotter climates.When it comes to other pets, Chuskies can get along with other animals if they are introduced slowly and calmly, and early socialization will help this go smoothly. That said, they may prefer to be the solo pet in the home.Chuskies are intelligent, but they can be stubborn. They thrive best with experienced dog owners.This mixed breed is known to be protective, especially of family. Your Chusky may bark every time someone knocks at the door or someone new enters the home. This also makes them excellent guard dogs.
