The Goberian is a crossbreed or designer dog that is a mix of the Golden Retriever and Siberian Husky breeds. Goberian dogs are known for their friendly and social personalities, as well as their intelligence and trainability.
Goberians typically have a medium to large build, with a thick coat that can come in a variety of colors, and they have a strong work ethic and are often used for search and rescue, therapy, and service work.
They require a lot of exercise and mental stimulation and can be prone to separation anxiety if left alone for extended periods of time. Goberians make great family pets for active families or individuals who enjoy outdoor activities and have a strong commitment to training and exercise.
