A LESSON IN HUSKY CROSS BREEDS.

SO THE MAJORITY OF YOU CAN LEARN A THING OR FUCKING TWO.

Lesson number one:
Don’t believe every thing you see on the internet.

Hey did you know that there’s only an estimated 120 West Estonian Shepherds left on the planet?

*reblog - omfg guys how sad we need to bring this beautiful breed back!*
*gets 23,837 notes*

NOPE. That’s a regular old German Shepherd. Long haired. Sable coat. BUT, since someone has stated a breed that literally does not even exist and posted a cute photo next to it everyone with an eye for anything cute and maybe 3 braincells has bought it. GUYS PLS.

~actual real example time~

What the internet says: Siberian Husky X Pomeranian! Looks like a husky puppy but never gets bigger! how perfect! omg just so cute! totez need one!!1 Pomskies are my absolute new fave breed. LOVez it!~

What it actually is: A Finnish Lapphund puppy. OK?!

Internet says: Siberian Husky X Golden Retriever. Cutie!! I neED ONE!

What it actually is: Blue Merle Australian Shepherd. once again a breed not even remotely close to what’s being advertised.

GUYS. C’MON. 

Lesson number two:
Designer breeds.

Obviously there are tons of cross breeds around the world; considering that most pedigree dogs now have come from the cross breeding of many earlier breeds, it should be to no surprise that the world will continue to create new breeds. The Labradoodle, Cockapoo, Puggle, Maltese Shih Tzu etc. Are all well known and loved “designer” breeds. These have been proven to work through time and numbers. The Labradoodle was originally created as a hypoallergenic breed to help the blind who were allergic to fur. 

Recently, however, with the growing fascination for Huskies, an alarming amount of Husky cross breeds are appearing. These are creating an appeal for the dimwitted who see something *omfg just so cute1* (even though the picture wasn’t even of the cross breed stated!) and create a rise in consumer wants. With this, puppy mills jump into action and churn out this new fan fave. (puppy mills are a whole other can of worms i’ll open for another time)

Dumb designer husky breeds that you should not buy:
