The Siberian Boston is a hybrid breed. His parent breeds are the Siberian Husky and the Boston Terrier. The Siberian Boston is a beautiful medium-sized dog. He is fairly easy to maintain, needing little in the way of grooming. He will also be easy to train; he is highly intelligent and eager to please his family. He may have a stubborn streak, but he is still recommended for novice dog owners. He does need a great deal of activity, both mental and physical. He may suffer from separation anxiety, so he is not a good match for those who are not home regularly. However, his winning personality and desire to bond with his family make him a great dog for most any pet parent.

Siberian Boston Breed History

The Siberian Boston is a hybrid breed, and there is little information regarding the origins of the breed. However, we can study the history of the parent breeds in order to better understand the Siberian Boston mixed breed. The Siberian Husky can trace his origins back to an ancient breed of dog that travelled with the Chukchi, a group of Siberian nomads. The Chukchi used the Husky as a mode of transportation (pulling sleds in heavy snow), but the Husky's ancestor was also a family dog. He would sleep with family members, particularly the children, providing warmth for them. The Siberian Husky made his way to America in 1908 after being imported to Alaska. He was used as a sled dog during the Gold Rush, and he continues to be used as a sled dog in the All-Alaska Sweepstakes. In 1930, the Russian government closed the border to Siberia, so all Huskies in the United States today are descended from these dogs. The Siberian Club of America was founded in 1938, and the first Husky was registered with the American Kennel Club in 1939. The Boston Terrier exemplifies his nickname, The American Gentleman. Called this due to his coat appearing like that of a tuxedo, the Boston Terrier is truly an American dog. Although there is no documentation regarding his origin, it is thought that all Bostons can trace their parentage to a dog named Judge owned by Robert Hooper of Boston. Judge was only bred once to a white dog named Kate. Their union produced only one pup, that, although not thought to be an attractive dog, had many characteristics the breeder wished to replicate. This pup was eventually mated with another white female weighing about twenty pounds, and their pups were mated with French Bulldogs to achieve the modern Boston Terrier. In 1889, thirty owners of Boston Bulldogs, as some of them were nicknamed, came together and formed the Boston Terrier Club. The American Kennel Club began registering the breed in 1893.

Siberian Boston Breed Appearance

The Siberian Boston has the best of both parent breed characteristics. He will generally weigh between twenty and forty pounds at maturity (much of this depends on the dominant parent breed). He will be slender, with tall, erect ears. He may have blue eyes, or he may have one brown and one blue eye (some refer to this as possessing a "glass" eye). He will likely have the longer snout of the Husky parent breed; however, this is not guaranteed. He is likely to be black over most of his body with white markings on his chest and stomach. He may have a white blaze on his face. His tail is likely to be long and slightly curved. His actual coat will depend on the dominant parent breed, so he may have the thick undercoat of his Siberian Husky parent breed in addition to the short outer coat of the Boston parent breed.

Siberian Boston Breed Maintenance

The Siberian Boston may or may not require much in the way of maintenance. This will depend on the type of coat he inherits from his parent breeds. Should he inherit the short coat of his Boston parent breed, you can expect to do little in the way of maintenance. He will simply need monthly brushing to rid his body of excess hair. In the spring and fall, to combat shedding, you will want to brush him weekly to prevent hair all over your clothing and furniture. Should he inherit the double coat of the Husky parent, you will need to be prepared for a twice-yearly "blow" of his coat. This will occur during the spring and fall. During this time, daily brushing is best to rid him of excess hair. Bathe him only when necessary. Brush his teeth two or three times a week to prevent the build up of tartar and bad breath. However, to prevent tooth decay, brush his teeth daily. Trim his nails once a month. You may have to do this twice a month, especially if he does not wear his nails down on his own.

Siberian Boston Temperament

The Siberian Boston will be a lively, energetic, and intelligent dog. He is also highly affectionate. You may find him bonding especially with one member of the family; however, he loves each member of the family and is happiest when spending time surrounded by them. He makes a good watchdog. He has no problem alerting his family to anything out of place in his territory. He is eager to please his human family, and this makes him fairly easy to train. Be aware that he may have a stubborn streak, however. Patience and persistence are key when working with a Siberian Boston. He may suffer from separation anxiety, so the Siberian Boston is not a good dog for families who aren't home regularly. He is happiest when he is curled up on the couch with you, or perhaps sitting in your lap, should you allow it. He makes a sweet and amusing addition to any family.

Siberian Boston Activity Requirements

The Siberian Boston will need a moderate amount of activity. Keep in mind that he is very intelligent. The Husky is a working dog, and he is happiest when working. The Boston is a lively little dog who enjoys mental stimulation as well. To keep him occupied, be sure to supply him with plenty of toys that stimulate his mind. In addition, you will want to provide him with chew toys. Both the parent breeds are known to be destructive to furniture and shoes when bored. For physical activity, brisk walks around the neighborhood are a great idea. He will enjoy the dog park, but only take him after he is trained to return back to you at your command. If you plan to allow him free time in a fenced-in area, be sure that the fence is at least six feet in height and that the fenced is anchored deep in the ground. The Siberian Husky parent has been known to climb out of fences or dig under them in order to find new territory to explore.
