The Husky Poodle mix is known as Huskypoo and it is a very unique dog breed, one of the rarest breeds in the world. It is a functional hybrid that is a cross between the Siberian husky and the Poodle.  

A Huskypoo is the combination of the energetic and loyal nature of the Siberian husky and the high intelligence of the Poodle. This breed is an adorable one that’s highly desirable as it comes from two highly energetic and intelligent breeds.

The Huskypoo mix is a new breed that is strong, energetic and intelligent. Its heritage comes from its two parent breeds; the designer poodle that is attractive and cerebral that is popular for its expensive look and the Siberian husky that’s a large dog that was created to work in really cold climates which is why it has such thick fur.

Huskypoo gets its trait from both parents; it is a resilient dog that is highly intelligent and strong which might make handling them difficult for inexperienced dog owners.

This dog breed has many nicknames; Poosky, Huskapoo, Siberpoo, Huskypoo. The cross between the Poodle and the Husky makes the Huskypoo non-shedding as the shedding tendency of the Husky is neutralized by the Poodle’s non-shedding.

The Huskypoo mix is a new breed whose precise reason for breeding and existence isn’t well known. To get an understanding of this relatively unknown breed’s heritage, one only needs to look at the history and traits of the Siberian husky and the Poodle.

The Husky originated from North-East Asia and was first linked to the Chukchi people who are semi-nomadic. These dogs had a high level of endurance and thick protective coats that allowed them pull sledges and other heavy objects in freezing temperatures. 

The first Siberian Huskies were isolated from people and other dogs for a long time before they were introduced to other parts of the world. This level of isolation enabled them keep their breed pure for years. 

Though these dogs earned their reputation as loyal hardworking dogs, they also make great companions that have lots of energy and love in them. Huskies tend to be very friendly by nature, which is exactly what several humans want in their pets. These dogs do have a lot of fur and they shed quite a bit of it regularly.

The second breed, the Poodle is known as the French dog even though its actual origin is Germany. This dog was bred for hunting ducks and they evolved into great water retriever dogs over time.

Poodles are excellent swimmers that are quite intelligent, both of which are traits that make them highly desirable to humans as pets. The most desirable quality of this breed is their fur that is non-shedding and also hypoallergenic. This makes the perfect breed for owners that don’t want to fuss over cleaning up after their dog’s fur.

The Huskydoodle mix is similar to other cross breeds in the sense that they inherit their traits from breed parents with some variations here and there, most notably in individual dogs’ persona and appearance.
