The newborn puppy is female and fits in the palm of the hand. As yet unnamed, this little puppy is light brown in colour and is the first known cross breed of a stud dog Siberian Husky and the mother Belgian Malinois. The new breed is named the ‘Huskinois’.
Dog breeder Darren Debenham, owner of DK9 Security Services of Ipswich, Suffolk, said the Huskinois could be perfect for the military or the police as the dog breed should have the speed and stamina of the stud dog, a Siberian Husky, and the ‘guard dog’ attributes of the mother, a Belgian Malinois.
The puppy was born last Sunday and Mr Debenham said:
“People have been trying to breed the two dogs for years but for some reason they would not breed and the pups died hours after they were born. We believe this is the only one in the world and we hope now we can create a bigger and better breed. We wanted to breed the two because the Belgian Malinois is a very fast and active dog and they can get to great speeds. They also have a high prey drive, but they do tend to over-heat and get tired very quickly.
“With the Siberian Husky they can get to great speeds and can run great distances with their stamina. So now we have a Malinois which can run that little bit further and be that little bit bulkier.”
“She has doubled in size over the first few days – I can’t wait to see what she turns out like. We haven’t actually named her yet, we are waiting for suggestions from the public, but we have decided on the name of the breed – it is going to be called a Huskinois.”
Mr Debenham sells his puppies and young dogs worldwide to the military, police and even celebrities and he said other dog breeders from around the world in Canada and the US ‘couldn’t believe it’ when they heard the news. This little puppy has certainly caused a stir at just a few days old and will be receiving a lot of visitors over the next couple of weeks.
