    What are the traits of a yorkie husky mix?

    A:

    The traits of a mixed-breed dog are unpredictable due to the wide pool of genes that the purebred parents provide to the offspring. Although a Yorkshire terrier and a Siberian husky vary greatly in appearance, a hybrid of these two breeds would likely be energetic, brave and loyal.
