Mixed-breed dogs have unpredictable traits that encompass the spectrum of their parent breeds. The temperaments of both the Shiba Inu and the Siberian husky are described as friendly, playful and good with children, indicating that a mix of these two dogs would likely have the same characteristics.
With any dog, proper socialization with children, strangers and pets is recommended from an early age for best results. Both the Shiba Inu and the Siberian husky can develop a pack leader mentality if their owners are not assertive enough. Aside from this, these breeds are considered intelligent and highly trainable. The prey instinct is well developed in the Siberian husky and the Shiba Inu, meaning that even properly socialized dogs should not be left alone with smaller animals.
