Hi,

I got my dog, named Wolf, 5 years ago and at the time I was not into dogs all that much because I never had one before. Obviously that changed quickly and love this little guy lol. The original owner had told me he was a Husky/Labrador mix but I am not sure if he was the real owner. I can see the Husky but not sure about the Labrador part. He is taller and slimmer than most Huskies though, I think.

He's almost 60 lbs, 2 1/4 ft tall, 3ft in length (4 ft with his tail), sheds all the time now, sometimes he howls like a wolf, rarely though, around 3 times a year, they are very memorable moments though lol.

He's pretty clumsy but smart and sneaky, looks at most 1 year old not 5, uses his ears as radars all the time, has one brown eye the other half blue/half brown, he's mostly black on top, white on bottom and face, and some light brown on the cheeks, chest and feet.

He's pretty fast when he runs, jumps extremely far and high, rarely barks, has a huge character, gives right paw than left paw when I say give me your paw, walks slow when I say slow.

I have all types of information, can someone please help me figure out what breed he really is? I would appreciate it, thank you. :D

PS: I've added a lot of pictures in an album over here on the website, In my profile.

Actually, now that I google Husky Labrador mix breed, there are quite a few dogs that look like him too... People must have added more pics since last I checked.. still not 100% sure though. Maybe there was another mix in the breed as well. I forgot to mention that he had extremely funny looking huge paws and legs when he was young, I wish I had taken pics in those years. :(

for some reason his ears make me think cattle dog but I'm completely crazy because nothing else about him is cattle dog like :confused: he's cute whatever he is! I definitely see the husky. I like his color he's like a tri colored husky :)

His markings make me think of border collie or aussie mixed with husky and gsd.

I'm guessing most dog's characters fit this description, I know it matches mine 100% wow...

Temperament

Alaskan Huskies are primarily bred as working dogs. They have greater endurance in sled racing than Siberian Huskies do. Gentle and playful, this cheerful dog is very fond of his or her family. A puppy at heart, they are clever, sociable and loving, easy-going and docile. Though they do generally have a lot of energy, especially as puppies. Good with children and friendly with strangers, they are not watchdogs, for they bark little and love everyone. Huskies are very intelligent and trainable, but they have a mind of their own and will only obey a command if they see the point and if you do not display leadership, they will not see the point in obeying you. Training takes patience, consistency and an understanding of the Arctic dog character. If you are not this dogs 100% firm, confident, consistent pack leader, he will take advantage if he can, becoming willful and mischievous. Huskies make an excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot. Huskies may be difficult to housebreak. This breed likes to howl and gets bored easily. They do not like to be left alone, so if this is the breed for you, you may want to consider having two. A lonely Husky, or a Husky who does not get enough mental and physical exercise can be very destructive. Remember that the Husky is a sled dog in heart and soul. They are good with other pets if they are raised with them from puppyhood. Huskies are thrifty eaters and need less food than you might expect. This breed likes to roam. Alaskan Huskies can make wonderful companions for people who are aware of what to expect from these beautiful and intelligent animals. Although there are 'exceptions to every rule', there are a number of breed characteristics that are generally present among members of this arctic breed.

I saw some pictures of Alaskan and Siberian Huskies, very hard to tell because some have almost the same faces, but when I saw this video, it really popped in my head that he probably was a Lab-Husky mix. Very hard to tell wether Alaskan or Siberian because Labs are taller and from what I saw in this video he has pretty much the same movements as the Labrador and leg height!! He does not move and jump like the husky but VERY much so like the lab! wow... That's exactly how he reacts when I play fight with him. Even the way the lab hops reminds me of my dog.

Some of you guys suggested some pretty similar looking dog breeds though.
