Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

My wife Hannah and I(Brandon) have always wanted a husky for the past 5 years or longer. I graduated from Michigan Tech whos mascot is a husky about 7 years ago and we've always thought it was meant to be to have a husky named Tek. We put a deposit on our little guy a few weeks ago and get to pick him up this Sunday. He was born July 3rd. Below are a couple pictures of him thus far. I hope to use this thread to ask any questions I might have on our journey to Husky companionship.

Welcome, I'm from Michigan too. Is there anyway the breeder can hold onto the puppy just a few more days? It's important to reach that 8 weeks mark!

Welcome fellow Michigander to the forum! I agree with Megan, if possible you shouldn't take puppies less then 8 weeks old.

What is with the 8 weeks vs the 6 week mark? He's getting shots this Friday and they're not letting us take him until Sunday

He needs those 2 weeks to learn socialization skills from mom and littermates, when you take them away that young you have issues with bite inhibition and countless other things.
