The strong Bullmastiff and the stunning Siberian Husky are the parent breeds of the wonderful Bullsky Mastiff dog. They are big but sweet dogs that will make calm and protective family pets as well as alert guard dogs. These dogs will need a large yard to run around in as they have high energy levels, but should not be overworked when it is too hot out. They have a lifespan of around 10 to 13 years and few health concerns. Since they can take on the stubbornness of their parent, this breed may not be the best choice for owners who are not experienced with dogs.

Bullsky Mastiff Breed History

In the recent years, the popularity of designer breeds seems to be on the rise. Therefore, due to their recent development, not much is documented on the creation of the Bullsky Mastiff breed. Bullmastiffs, however, were originally from England in the 1860’s. They were made from the crossbreeding of a Bulldog and a Mastiff, and their jobs were to guard large estates and monitor game preserves to keep poachers away. Although they were courageous and strong, these dogs did not hurt the poachers that they caught but would instead pin and hold them. The Yatsuk region of Northern Siberia is where the Siberian Husky was found. They were used as sled dogs, which was the main source of transportation for the Chukchi people. When not pulling the sleds, these dogs were spending time with the women and children, which is what made them such friendly and non-aggressive family pets. By 1909, Siberian Huskies were sent to Alaska. A team of Siberian Huskies owned by Charles Fox Ramsay and driven by John Johnson were the winners of a 400 mile long race that took place in 1910. From that time and for a decade after, this breed was used by sled racing enthusiasts from all over. There was a diphtheria epidemic in the year of 1925 in Nome, Alaska, and the quickest way to transport the much needed antitoxins more than 600 miles away was by sled dog. Siberian Huskies were used for this heroic task, which helped they become more known and respected across the United States. This breed also contributed to World War II, where they were used by the U.S. army for the Arctic Circle search and rescue units.

Bullsky Mastiff Breed Appearance

These cute dogs will be about the same size as their Bullmastiff parents. Their tails will be like that of a Husky, long and curled. Bullmastiffs are described as large, symmetrical and powerful. Their heads are broad and wrinkling, and the muzzles are short and dark, with a slight underbite. They have dark, pendant shaped ears and high-set tapering tails that are long enough to reach their hocks. One of the stunning characteristics of the arctic Siberian Husky is their eyes, which can be brown, striking blue, or one of each.They have medium sized skulls that should be proportionate to their bodies and that taper from the eyes forward. Their muzzles will taper gradually to the tip and are medium in length. Their noses can be either black, liver, flesh colored or snow nose, depending on the color of the coat. Their triangularly shaped ears that are slightly rounded will sit high atop the head and will be erect. They have thick tails that curve and lay on their long and straight backs when they are alert, but will trail when they are relaxed.

Bullsky Mastiff Breed Maintenance

Grooming needs for the Bullsky Mastiff will be similar to that of the Siberian Husky and Bullmastiff. The latter is easy to maintain in terms of coat care, but will need to have the wrinkles on their face cleaned. They should shed an average amount and should be brushed regularly, but do not need to be bathed unless they are dirty. Siberian Huskies, on the other hand, are heavier shedders and should be brushed at least once per week. They will also not need baths unless necessary, since they are clean dogs that will usually groom themselves. More maintenance needs for all dogs includes teeth brushing, ear cleaning and nail trimming. Bullmastiffs are prone to bad breath, so it is important to brush your Bullsky Mastiff’s teeth at least two or three times per week, although daily is preferred. Clean and check your dog’s ears once a week to keep them healthy and infection free. Depending on your dog’s level of activity, nails will need to be clipped once or twice a month.

Bullsky Mastiff Temperament

The Bullsky Mastiff hybrid breed usually takes on a lot of personality traits from its Husky parent. Therefore, they can be independent, confident and stubborn, which means that you will need to prove yourself as the leader of the pack from the beginning in order to gain their respect. They are very social and love to spend time around people of all ages. These dogs are great around children as well and this breed seems to be sensitive to sound cues. Therefore, using sounds such as clicking or snapping your fingers while training will help them understand and respond. Bullmastiffs are fearless but docile. They will protect their loving family at all costs but will not be violent or hurt anyone. This breed is not easily provoked and is great around kids. Bullmastiffs can be stubborn and require patience to train, so keep in mind that your Bullsky Mastiff may be the same. They are great family pets, since they are not aggressive towards other dogs and are indifferent towards strangers. However, they do need lots of exercise and proper training, which may be too much for first time dog owners.

Bullsky Mastiff Activity Requirements

It is necessary to exercise these dogs daily. A nice long walk will do them some good, as well as play time in a large yard. However, they will also enjoy relaxing and spending time with you just laying around. They are athletic and agile, with the ability to run fast and jump high. If your Bullsky Mastiff is similar to the Bullmastiff, they should not be overworked during the summer as it is too hot for them. Siberian Huskies are very energetic and definitely need an active lifestyle or they may get out of hand.
