    I have no idea but would guess that you could get quite an 'interesting' dog out of that - noisy very active husky x nervous very active collie

    but I may be way off mark there and am happy to be told so

    personally I would say no

    When looking at a cross breed.... always imagine what the worst case scenario would be :lol:
    Could you cope with a dog that had the bad points of a husky as well as the bad points of a collie?
    If you are fairly sure you could, then why not? :) You might be pleasantly surprised and have a very easy dog Lol both my dogs are part collie and aren't very much collie about them.

    I couldn't really guess. i suppose you would have to look in to both breeds in depth and make sure both were suited to your lifestyle.

    I was just looking at the same breed as i had seen a couple advertised and a bitch i quite like. :) But before i make any rash decisions i need to think about it more in depth. :D

    If you think both breeds and their traits are something that is suitable to your household, I don`t see a problem.
    It might not be an ideal cross for some people, but you might not be some people :D

    The only thing I would recommend with a cross like that is that you buy a furminator

    thats a definite :D :lol: :thumbup:

    High maintenance, active dog. Would require alot of physical and mental activities to keep it sane. If you are fully prepared for the worst (which may well happen. I wouldn't go anywhere near it if I hadn't seen the parents at least) for that then fine...........

    I've seen most breeds crossed with a collie but husky/collie cross is a new one on me.

    my friend has a beagle/collie/husky as you can imagine a mad dog! But she is lovely and as long as she gets plenty of excersize she is fine , moults like mad though!

    Obviously with a crossbreed you always get different but I would love a collie/husky just because of bonnie , here is the little sweetie

    ment in the nicest way possible, and only cus i know what its like to have a resource guarder, and i made sure kira was over it till we brought grey in

    she had a full on fight over a bit of mud :lol:

    obv i dont know whats she's like at home, i've just seen how she's been at the park recently, if u think she will be ok with another dog around her space then go for it

    that staff up there last time was a right sh*t tho, made keyu bleed :mad:

    wonder if a collie x sibe would round the sheep into a corner before it tried to eat them? :blink:

    aww thanks hun, i thought kira had a chance of winning at one last year, but she only got 4th, and that was in junior handler class (i stole a child lol) so it was more about the kids than the dogs. she didnt even get placed in any of the other classes :( lol

    hopefully keyu's redheadedness will help her win lol

    how are u gettin there??

    Yuri is 1/4 sibe and half BC he's also 1/4 GSD, but he is crazy, he has calmed down a lot after being neautered but he's still crazy. He's fine for me, but not everyone could deal with a dog with so much energy.
