Labrador Husky Pictures and Information

At first glance, the Labrador Husky looks like a wolf. It is a bit smaller than the Alaskan Malamute, but it is larger than the Siberian Husky.


Labrador Husky Description

The Labrador Husky is a fairly large dog which can weigh up to 100 pounds. It is likely to have been bred and introduced by the Thule Inuit of Dorsets. Like the Siberian and Alaskan Husky, it has traditionally been used as a sled dog. This breed has existed for hundreds of years and is unique because it has become isolated from other northern dog breeds during this time. These dogs were heavily used until the invention of the snowmobile, and are now kept as pets. It has a dense coat that allows it to thrive in the cold environments that it originates from.

Of all the northern dog breeds, the Labrador Husky is one of the rarest. It is a purebred and has existed for many years. It is also not well understood by many dog breeders.

Country of Origin



Unlike the Siberian or Alaskan Husky, Labrador Husky is not well known. It is a purebred dog which originated in Labrador. It looks like a wolf and has many of the characteristics that are found in wolves. The Labrador Husky does not bark but will howl instead. Labrador Huskies have a combination of strength, intelligence, and stamina, properties that are good for virtually any breed.  One reason why this breed behaves like wolves are because the Thule Inuit exposed it to native wolves in the region.

Health Problems

There are no known ailments that are specific to this breed. Any health problems it may have are common with most other breeds. While the exact life expectancy of these dogs isn’t known, a healthy Labrador Husky should live for approximately 10 to 13 years.


Labrador Huskies are strong dogs that need lots of exercises. They are not good for people who live in apartments, and owners will want to have large yards for them to live in.
