Default Husky & Border Collie mix

What will the dog be like behavior wise?
How big will she get?
She has this grey coat. It looks like merle. She then has some brown/tan color on her face/legs/paws. What color is she then?

Sorry I have no camera or devices take pictures.

Not an expert by any means, but just from my experience: 50-70 lbs, high energy, smart, will need a lot of exercise and training, but can be a lot of fun, can be stubborn. Huskies can have recall problems. That's all I "know". I'm sure someone will come along with more educated remarks. Good luck and have fun with you new pup.

Be cautious with this mix. It will be high energy too.

Well here are a couple of dog breed sites where you can get all the info you will need. 1 Dog Breeds | The largest library of dog breeds online. 2. Just Dog Breeds - 164 Dog Breed Profiles - Large and Small Dog Breeds
like i said earlier will you get help from your mum/dad to help you as it's big task bringing up a puppy? Both sites will give you info on breed temperment energy levels etc,etc and training requirements too. HTH

If you want a well behaved dog, it will take training. Your whole family should be involved in the training. Both BC and Huskies are working dogs and are high energy. (BC usually need a "job" to do to be content and adult huskies usually need *at least* 3-4 hours of running daily.) I'd suggest you look into agility/flyball near you, look into doing something like urban mushing(
dog scootering or something close). However, those extra activities should be started after your dog knows basic obedience. Don't let your dog off leash until it's 100% reliable with recall. Expect the dog to need a good amount of daily exercise and mental stimulation daily.

To find a dog trainer near you or dog training class I'd suggest you do an internet search(go to google and type in "Dog trainer in _____" Put the area you live in, in the blank).

Here are some pages for each breed the dog is mixed with that has information on the breed. Read those and then you can guess at what you might get between the two.

Border collie:
Border Collie Characteristics
Living With Border Collies

Here's another article on Border collies that I like to send to people who are interested in the breed, but don't really know much about them:
Border Collie rescue

Husky:
The Siberian Husky
So . . . You Want A Siberian Husky?
The Siberian Husky Breed – Good and Bad

As for size? You'll just have to guess. It will probably be between the two breeds she's mixed with.

I think it's imperative that both parents are invloved in the training too This puppy wont stay small for ever and will soon grow and get in to bad habits!! so prevntion is better than cure on this. do you research from the links I have and Ama has provided you get your parents invloved in this too 3 heads are better than one on this Good luck!

This is a mix that was popular here some time ago for competitive obedience and agility. This is a handful of a dog typically even for an experienced sport dog trainer who keeps it both mentally and physically stimulated. You can expect this dog to be intelligent and athletic, requiring a lot of exercise and entertaining. If it's needs aren't met, you can expect it to be destructive and problematic. You can also expect if husky traits come through that the dog will have a high prey drive, and yes, it will shed a lot. In my opinion this is not a smart choice for an average pet dog owner.

In my limited experience, you can't tell ahead of time which breed will be dominant. I know of an Australian Shepherd/Great Pyranese mix that you can recognize some of the physical aspects of the Aussie but behavior is totally Pyranese. Aloof...doesn't chase or run, etc.

We still don't know if there is any help being given by the OP's parents
which is very important in this situation!!! Nor do we know if the dog is upto date with vaccinations/worming measures etc.

Well. They are paying for the dogs things. But, they don't want to do much more, because she is my dog. I made that decision. They'll let her to go potty, & help potty training. But the other stuff is up to me.

It is summer . So I will take her out more, train her more, excerise with her more. There is a dog park close to me . Should I take her there ?
