But first of all: Usually, we recommend that you acquire all animals through a rescue. However, we also understand that some people might go through a breeder to get their Great Dane Husky Mix puppy. It’s always good to screen your breeders as much as possible to ensure that you are getting as high a quality dog as is possible. When you are well informed, chances are small to make mistakes.

Great Dane Husky Mix Personality
As every potential owner, you probably want to know what’s the possiblepersonality that your pup might have. However, trying to predict the personality traits of hybrid dog isn’t always that easy to do. Usually, the mix takes more from one of the parent breeds than the other. What we can say for both of the dogs is that the Husky and the Great Dane are very loyal, alert, independent, intelligent, brave, and social. General advice and the best thing you can do for any puppy or young dog is to socialize it as well as possible. Socialization is extremely important, especially during the early stages.
Besides personality, you probably want to know the possible health issues that your dog might have. Since all dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems as all breeds are susceptible to some things more than others. However, the one positive thing about getting a puppy is that you can avoid this as much as possible. A breeder should and must absolutely offer a health guarantee on puppies. If they won’t do this, then look no more and don’t consider that breeder at all since there could be something suspicious.
Please do not purchase a puppy from a breeder who cannot provide you with written documentation that the parents were cleared of health problems that affect the breed. Be sure that a careful breeder and one who truly cares about the breed itself, screens their breeding dogs for genetic disease and breed only the healthiest and best-looking specimens. Regarding health issues, this breed doesn’t have any at all.
Care and Grooming
What’s a good thing about the Great Dane is that it has a very short coat and doesn’t shed that much. However, you can probably guess that the Husky has the exact opposite. They have a longer coat and shed a ton. So, it is more than likely that the Great Dane Husky Mix is going to be somewhere in between and is going to shed a lot. General advice for this dog is to get ready to invest in a good vacuum if you want to keep your floors clean. Also, give them proper baths as needed, but not so much that you dry out their skin.
Great Dane Husky Mix Feeding
Many times diet is done on a per-dog basis. You should know that each one is unique and has different dietary requirements. However, most dogs in the U.S. are overweight. Looking at a mix like this one that is prone to hip and elbow dysplasia should really be on fish oil and glucosamine and chondroitin supplements as soon as possible.
