|Ace being a mix, it's hard to say. I think she's got some Belgian Malinois or GSD or both, because there's a definite protectiveness of the home turf that our full huskies don't demonstrate. I do like it though. The average petty thief is not going to risk finding out what's behind her bark. She's friendly with anyone away from home, but she has to know visitors are okay with us. THEN she wants to love all over them But she's got the vocal range of a husky in addition to her "watchdog" bark. So expressive, I love it.
Worst trait for all of them is poor recall. And I don't think I'll trust any of them off-leash in an unfenced area. Typical of huskies though. And Teeko and Kale have both gotten out of the yard while Ace was right there with them. She didn't follow.
And the prey drive is tough to handle on walks. I hate to see Kale leave with my daughter, but it will be much easier to return to only walking two dogs, not three at a time.
But what I love about all three, and especially Kale and Teeko, is how sweet and friendly they are with people, including small children. That is pretty typical of huskies, I think. The aggressive ones are few and far between.
The playful is so fun to watch! A running husky is breathtakingly beautiful to me. Ace has a way of chasing for a while, then turning on the jets to catch Teeko, letting him think's he faster for a little while.
Part of the reason I think Ace is part Belgian Malinois is her energy level. Just more "on" than the other two. And to be more "on" than a couple of huskies is saying something! It has its pros and cons. She is massively entertaining, but it can be a little much at times.
