Golden Retriever X Husky Puppy Is Melting Hearts Online

Golden retrievers are a beloved dog type, with their tolerant temperament and friendly demeanor making them fantastic family pets.

Huskies, on the other hand, are energetic and athletic, known for surviving harsh winters and being able to travel long distances.

But what about a hybrid of these best-loved breeds? Well, one TikToker has taken to the app to share footage of her puppy who is a mix of the two—and it is adorable.

The video has gone viral on the app since it was posted on July 3 by a woman called Cori Baker, having surpassed a whopping 18.6 million views,

The clip, which can be watched here, begins with two dogs, a golden retriever and a husky, staring up at the camera and wagging their tails.

Text overlaying the footage asks: "Have you ever seen a golden retriever x husky?"

The camera then cuts to an adorable puppy who is being held aloft.

The small fluffy animal shares the coloring of the husky but the floppy ears and eye-shape of the retriever.

Baker captioned the cute clip: "Golden retriever & husky accident #dogs #fyp #dogsoftiktok #dogmix #golden #husky."

The video of the puppy has gained lots of traction online, having received 5.1 million views.

More than 47,800 people rushed to the comments section to share their opinions on the animal.

One person, User7768019260873, wrote: "She got the golden retriever body and husky fur. Nice."

Another social media user, Joni A., added: "That is the cutest accident."

Shea joked: "The Oreo retriever."

Sunset stated: "It should be called a golden husky."

Sheri gushed: "Definitely not an accident! Miracle," alongside a heart-eyed emoji.

Nina revealed: "My jaw dropped it's so cute ahh."

BB Mya BB revealed: "My dog has a husky body and a golden retriever color but she's a little lighter."

Flyingcupcake35 remarked: "Huskies lose a lot of hair and golden retrievers lose a lot of hair oh god. Lol."

Ari Pardis opined: "Golden retriever owners would attack you for not having ethical breeding practices (I am one but I don't degrade people)."

To this Baker responded: "Hahaha it was an accident and they happen! They're very well taken care of and loved that is what matters to me."

According to pet adoption site, the mix between a golden retriever and a Siberian husky is called a goberian.

The website explains that they make great family dogs, however they need "lots of physical activity. Owners must usually walk them for twelve miles or more each week."

Newsweek has contacted Baker for comment.
