We have all seen our fair share of mixed breed dogs. Some of these animals were the result of accidental breeding and some were done on purpose. In fact, designer dogs are now all the rage and there are many breeders mixing two different dog breeds. But one designer dog that is really catching people’s attention these days is the Rottweiler Husky Mix.
So What Do These Dogs Look Like?
These very attractive canines normally look like their Rottweiler parent but they have the blue eyes of the Husky. They have a large frame that is often muscular and can weigh up to 80 pounds. This cross results in a very beautiful animal that many people desire. These dogs are often black and brown when it comes to color coat and they have a very distinct pattern.
What About Temperament Are They Aggressive in Nature?
When you cross breed any animal you never know what you are going to get as far as temperament goes. But just like any animal, you have to properly socialize them at a young age. This will allow them to become calm and well-mannered dogs that get along with everyone. But if you don’t take the time to spend it with your dog, you may end up with an aggressive pooch. This can happen in any dog breed but because this cross is so large you want to take extra precautions when raising them. This is not the dog for those who don’t have the time to take up with them.
Are These Animals Laid Back or Are They High Energy?
Because both of these dogs’ parents were working dogs, the Rottweiler Husky Mix is going to have a lot of energy. They are going to need lots of space to run around in to burn off that energy before going in for the day. This means that if you get one of these dogs, you are going to have to spend some quality time with it. Neglecting these dogs when it comes to exercise is probably not a wise move especially if you want to keep your sofa in one piece. But with the proper training and walking, these dogs will do just fine indoors. In fact, they love to spend their downtime simply relaxing in their favorite spot. Even people that live in apartments can enjoy these large animals if they walk them at least twice a day.
