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.

Hi! My name is Jessica, and I have a 6 month old Husky. Her Name is Nanook, Or Nooka, Or Nookie, whatever we decide to call her that day. Wink and her AKC name is Nanook Of The North East. lol. It's fitting.

I got her when she was 7 weeks old, and she was very sick. I got her from a breeder and paid a considerable amount for her, then racked up the vet bills for a stomach infection, worms and digestive issues. :(she was only 3 1/2 pounds at her vet visit and sat as tall as the heel on my raised size 7 shoe. It was quite difficult getting her health back in order but she's doing great now!

She's a happy and healthy girl. She has Heterochromia (Just like my cat!) with one blue eye and one brown eye with a ring or brown around the blue eye.

I do have minor concerns about her health, as she is still quite small. I know females are smaller than males, but she's REALLY small for being 6 months old. She only weighs 26 pounds and 18 inches at the shoulders. She's a bit short and fat by the looks of her. OR shall we say a little "husky" lol.

She's a sweet girl, but her weight and height concern me. She was the runt of the group of 6 pups though. her brother weighed over 5 pounds, and she at only 3 1/2.

This was the night i brought her home. without wearing my sneakers and my toes are curled on to the floor.


She ALWAYS sleeps like this! Froggy legs!


This one of more recent, but shows her strange sleeping positions.


This one was taken Today. about an hour ago infact. This is my Nanook with her brother Goliath.

Oh goodness! 3.5 lbs... She looks very happy and healthy now though! I wouldn't worry too much about her weight. I think my male was only about 10 lbs heavier than she is at 6 months. He is 7.5 months and right around 40 lbs. but he seems to have just hit a growth spurt. She is a cutie though. Smile My first husky was petite and she was about 37 lbs at her healthiest.

That's about the same weight of my girl at six months. I think it's normal for females. At her full size she's only 38lbs. Welcome to the forum!
