The name Huskita is a combination of the names of the dog’s two parent breeds: the Siberian Husky and the Akita. Siberian Huskies, whose lineage dates to over 3,000 years ago, descended from “Spitz” dogs that were bred to be sled dogs in arctic regions of the world, enabling the tribes they served to travel faster and farther. This sled pulling ability combined with great speed; in 1925 the Husky made possible a life saving event. Instrumental in the saving of lives during a diphtheria epidemic in Nome, Alaska, the Husky pulled the sleds that transported much needed serum to villagers at risk - in a grueling snowstorm at that. The breed was recognized by the AKC in 1930.

Care and Health

The dense coat of Huskita sheds quite less, hence brush the skin at least thrice a week to protect its natural oils. Bath it only when necessary, with a dog shampoo. Clip its long nails using the correct tools. Occasionally clean the eyes and ears to avoid infections. The big size of this breed can cause bone issues like hip dysplasia. Disorders obtained from parents include eye problems, bloating, obesity, and hypothyroidism. Ask for the parent’s health clearances from the breeder before buying the Huskita.
