The Huskita is a mix between a Siberian Husky and an Akita Inu purebreds. They are called hybrids due to their origination from two different pure breeds. The Huskita dogs are medium to large size and can stand up to 26 inches. Their weight can be in the range of 70 to 120 pounds. They are strong and well built dogs with features of both parent breeds.
These hybrids are found in different colours that are a mix of their parent colours. Common colours for these dogs are black, gray, red and white or any mix of these colours.
Their coat is usually, dense, rough and thick with water-repellent hair.
The Huskita dogs are friendly, loving, and devoted. They are affectionate with their family but aloof towards strangers, however, with proper introduction, they can become social with them. These dogs are good with children but supervision is needed when playing with children. The Huskita dogs are alert and attentive to their surroundings and will make very good watch dogs.
