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.

PostSubject: Howdy from a FL Husky pup   Fri Sep 27, 2013 4:37 pm

Hi all, I am a new Husky owner and have a few questions if anyone has any idea or opinion please let me know! First I have a lil boy who will be 10 weeks old tomorrow. He picked me out at 8 weeks old and only weighs 8.6 pounds as opposed to his bro's and sis who are around 16 pounds. I am worried about his weight and have him now on Blue Large Breed puppy food but he has not gained any weight. My vet said he was just going to be small for his breed and to feed him Science Diet but that has corn in it and I was trying to stay away from that kind of food. Any suggestions would be awesome. Ty soo much!!! I love you

My only input would be that huskies (all dogs for hat matter) tend to grow at different rates. We brought our pup home at 7 weeks and she weighed 7 pounds. Her siblings were about the same. 16 pounds sounds a bit heavy to me at that age, but again, growth could be different. She has grown steadily, most recently weighing 30 pounds at about 5 months. If you check out the "weigh in" thread, you can get a good sense of the weights of many different huskies throughout different life stages. http://www.itsahuskything.com/t999p820-weigh-in#171959

I wouldn't worry about it and see how he continues to grow. Maybe wait another couple of weeks to see if he has put on any pounds.

Ok I will keep that in mind. The other concern I have with him is he has a lazy eye. Is that common in this breed? Neither one of his parents did.
