A brief presentation of the Aussie Siberian

An Aussie Siberian is a combination of a pure-bred Australian Shepherd and a Siberian Husky. Aussie Siberians are bred to be active companions who offer security due to their energy, large size and intelligence. Although the breed is known for being highly trainable, it can also be hyperactive and stubborn. Aussie Siberians are explorers and need access to outdoor spaces and plenty of exercise. As a result, Siberian Aussies have a double-layered, weather-resistant coat that equips them to be outdoors in all climates. They have an average lifespan of 11 to 13 years and an average weight of 18 to 29.5 kilos. Known for being loyal and gentle pets, Aussie Siberians are great family dogs if given sufficient exercise and affection.

History of the Aussie Siberian

The name Aussie Siberian is a combination of the names of its two parent breeds, the Australian Shepherd, known as the Aussie, and the Siberian Husky, often referred to simply as the Husky. Although there is no exact date of origin for this breed, Australian Shepherds and Huskies are thought to have been bred together for decades. In general, breeders have found that Aussie Siberians retain the high energy levels and stubborn attitude of their Husky parent and the protective, affectionate nature of their Shepherd parent. Aussie Siberians are not purebreds, so they are not recognized by the AKC. For this reason, Aussie Siberian breeders should be thoroughly researched if you are interested in buying from them.
        

A little of the Australian Shepherd

        
The Australian Shepherd, despite its name, is not native to Australia. In fact, these dogs were probably bred from Collie varieties in the early 1900s to flocks of sheep in the western United States. The popularity of the Australian Shepherd exploded in the 1950s and they are now used as handicap guides, therapy dogs, drug detectors, search and rescue agents and, of course, as beloved pets. The breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1993.

A little of the Siberian Husky

Siberian Huskies, whose lineage dates back over 3,000 years, descended from Spitz dogs that were bred to be sled dogs in the Arctic regions of the world. The breed arrived in North America in the early 20th century, served on U.S. Army search and rescue teams and was recognized by the AKC in 1930. Today, the Siberian Husky is one of the most popular Arctic breeds.

Appearance of the Aussie Siberian

Aussie Siberians tend to resemble shaggier Huskies due to their Shepherd lineage. They are large dogs with a solid, muscular build. An average male weighs between 18 and 29.5 kilos, and an average female between 16 and 25 kilos. Males generally measure 51 to 61 centimeters, while females measure 46 to 53 centimeters. The breed's short to medium coat is generally dominated by two colors. One color covers from chest to stomach, as well as legs and paws. The other color dominates the rest of the body. Generally, the base color is solid and can be white, black, brown, cream or gray. Their coat is also fairly dense and water-resistant. Aussie Siberians have curious, alert expressions, triangle-shaped ears that fold back, a tapered muzzle with a level bite and oval eyes that can come in many colors. Their legs are broad and durable, while their tail is proportional and covered with a full coat.

Temperament of the Aussie Siberian

They are not only intelligent, but also very protective of their territory and its inhabitants. They tend to howl or growl more than bark in situations where they sense a threat. In addition, Aussie Siberians are independent, despite developing strong attachments to their owners. They are known to escape from confined spaces and choose to move away from their owners if given the chance. On the whole, Siberian Aussies can be very obedient and calm if trained from an early age and exercised correctly.

Needs and activities of the Aussie Siberian

Aussie Siberians are known to be hyperactive, stubborn dogs. They have excessive amounts of energy that can be destructive if not exercised properly. Many Aussie Siberian owners have found that, because of the breed's intelligence, strict training at a young age can help counteract these undesirable traits. Aussie Siberians are also known to be very good with children, making them a particularly great pet for an active family. Beyond that, Aussie Siberians have an excellent guard dog temperament.

Maintenance of the Aussie Siberian

Aussie Siberians are generally low-maintenance pets. They are not hypoallergenic dogs, but their short to medium-length coats do not require trimming or styling. This breed sheds heavily at least twice a year. Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush will help reduce continuous shedding. Owners should aim to bathe this breed as needed, as well as clean its eyes and ears regularly. As with all breeds, Aussie Siberians should have their teeth brushed daily and their nails trimmed about once a month. Owners should, however, take particular care to inspect Aussie Siberians for external debris or ticks that could get caught in its coat when roaming outdoors.
