Great Danesky (Great Dane x Siberian Husky)

The Great Danesky has a well-balanced disposition with a laid-back nature. If they are more inclined to the Siberian Husky’s side, then they could inherit the latter’s prey drive and have a tendency to chase cats. If they show the Husky’s independence, then obedience and socialization training must be given since their puppy days to eliminate the problem.
