Origin / History The Labrador Husky originated in Canada, in an area called Labrador. It is believed that dogs of this breed were brought by the Inuit people when they came to Canada in 1300 A.D. Labrador Huskies used to be very closely related to various Northern breeds like the Siberian Husky, but then they became isolated and began to develop on their own. Labrador Huskies even bred with wolves found in the area. Despite this, though, they are not considered wolf-dogs, or as having recent wolf ancestry.

While these dogs were isolated, some people in Labrador allowed them to breed with Alaskan Malamutes and Alsatians. This was done to create a sled dog that is larger and bears a resemblance to the Siberian Husky while still being larger and more similar to a wolf.

Appearance Labrador Huskies are similar in appearance to the wolf. These dogs are smaller than Alaskan Malamutes, but larger than Siberian Huskies. These dogs have a round head that is covered with fluffy fur, and they have a long, narrow muzzle. Their fluffy fur covers their body, and their double coat gives them adequate protection from harsh, cold weather.

Colours The coat colours of these dogs include solid black, solid white, red and white, gray and white, and black and white. Some dogs of this breed may also come in solid gray or wolf gray, but these dogs are very rare. The most common coat colours are gray and white, solid black, and black and white. Red and white, as well as solid and white, are less common.

Temperament Labrador Huskies are often misunderstood, sometimes even by experienced breeders. This is because Labrador Huskies have a different temperament from other Northern breeds. Labrador Huskies may have a tendency to not be friendly, and sometimes, they can even become aggressive with strangers. When provided with proper socialization, though, these dogs can be get along well with children, particularly those that they've been raised with from puppyhood. These dogs work well with other canines, because they were bred to work with a pack. These dogs are intelligent, strong, and energetic, and may be challenging to train for novice dog owners.

Height and Weight Labrador Huskies have a height that ranges from 20 to 28 inches, and a weight that falls between 60 and 100 pounds.

Common Health Problems These dogs have no known genetic health problems. They have undergone selective breeding, and special care has been taken during the process to make sure that only few health problems remain. The ailments affecting dogs of this breed are those common to most other breeds as well.

Living Conditions It's not advisable for these dogs to be kept inside apartments. They should have at least a large yard where they can run around and do some physical activities while training. It's best for these dogs to be kept in places with a cold climate.

Exercise Requirements Like other dog breeds, Labrador Huskies need plenty of exercise. These dogs should be taken out for long walks or jogs daily. It's also advisable for these dogs to be given some work to do.

Training Requirements Being intelligent, it's easy for these dogs to learn new things. They should, however, be given enough exercised so that they won't become bored. It's also important for these dogs to be socialized extensively at an early age. Obedience training is essential as well.

Life Expectancy Although the exact life span of these dogs is unclear, it is believed that they can live for approximately 10 to 13 years.

Grooming Like other double-coated breeds, the Labrador Husky needs to be brushed regularly to get rid of loose and dead hairs. Bathing these dogs should be done only when they are already excessively dirty.
