PostSubject: is it a husky ?? plz help   Sat Nov 30, 2013 7:00 am

hey guys , i've been reading alot of topics on this forum for quite long time now and i find it very interesting and very beneficial , secretly i was trying to see if anyone has a "husky" like mine but sadly i didnt find any and it was kinda depressing so i've decided to register and put some pictures of him and see the opinion of the experts as i;ve seen u have LOTs of expert husky owners here .

So to brief it up , i got my beloved puppy Ryu from a husky breeder , i've seen the parents  and they r extremely beautiful pure breed husky , mother is grey colored with clear face no crowns or tags , father is redish cream color very pure husky except that he was much bigger than normal husky size , my puppy is a cream color ( light red ) black (humanly) eye so its kinda confusing me and i wish to know if hes a pure breed or maybe a Mix .








i have more pics for him if needed and pics for parents as well .

Thanks alot everyone

Hi and welcome. It's really hard to tell from those pix, but he looks like a mix to me. Maybe a lab mix. I do see some husky in him though. Could you post more pix and the pix of his parents? Did the breeder have other intact males (non-huskies) on site?

Welcome! Probably one of the easiest ways to tell if he's purebred or not would be to see if the breeder has the pedigrees of the parents. If he doesn't then your husky is probably a mix-breed (it kind of looks like a mix too.) Awesome dog either way though! Wink

Well, the parents do look full Sibe, but I have to agree with others that the puppy does look like a mix. Are you sure that the father is the actual father of the pup?

Does the breeder have a website that we could also take a look at?

I do not think that puppy came from that mating.

A reverse google image search brought this up... Is this where your puppy is from?


The bitch pictured above is named "Nevada" or Navi- Wild Western Wind of Nordica... Not Amanda.

I really hope this isn't the case, but I think you may have been lied to. I have seen that exact picture of that red male on many websites. Did you see both in person? I agree with Kristina. That mating couldn't have produced your pup. The coat on your puppy is a sure sign that he is not from these parents. It looks like he has no undercoat, meaning he is not a double coated dog as all sibes are. I'm so sorry they lied to you!

This whole thing seems a bit fishy.

I was actually wondering about the sex of that dog too. I couldn't tell if it was a weird angle, or if a certain part of anatomy was missing...

Thank u all guys for the huge effort u did , it was ammazing , am sending here to update u guys with wat happened
the pic of the father was a mistake actually , i only seen him once so i got tricked with the pic , he has same color and kinda bigger body though , he looked fine for me actually just the wrong picture to upload .
the Mother is actually wat i saw and shes the one in the picture from the link one of u guys uploaded above for the europian breeder i guess ( blue website ) , he got it from this breeder and got her shipped to here , the breeder just didnt remove it from the website , my breeder has shown me the Pedigree of the mother in real life with same name on the website but he already told me he changed her name to amanda .
Father as the breeder finally said it has no pedigree for the father and that the father's blood line has Alaskan malamute in it thought the father got the size only out of it , which is good for me so far .
breeder also confessed that Ryu ( my puppy ) was the worst of his litter siblings compared to the standard though he was the biggest in size . the breeder offered me the appartunity to come and exchange the puppy with one of his meeting all standards puppy with hybrid eyes but i loved my puppy so am not exchanging or giving him away

Here r some new pics of my beloved puppy Smile, hes 3 months old now Very Happy








Feel free to say ur opinion about its breed no matter wat the breeder said coz am actually so interested to hear ur lovely opinions Smile

Thank you all ! Smile

To your knowledge, does the breeder health test the parents? Are his dogs registered and if so what registry? Do they do any activities with their breeding dogs to have a base of what to breed for? Such activities would be conformation shows, dog sports (agility, obedience, etc), and sled/dryland racing.

Would really have loved to see what the dad actually looked like, but sadly from what it sounds like your pup may not have come from a responsible breeder. Breeders who do not breed their dogs to a show or working standard will often produce pups that can look very different from what they are supposed to look like, no matter how pure they are.

I have a feeling there is something other than the Malamute or husky that the breeder says your pup is, that short and thin coat is not something you would get from those breeds.

well , the breeder i got it from is a normal guy , doesnt do it for profit mainly , he just wanted a good husky so he got it from that official breeder out side of my country but then his dog needed to mate so yeah thats the whole thing , and i like my dog actually so i dont care if he would be pure breed or no coz i look for the personality and other things and shape is the last thing i would care about , am not a breeder so yeah ...... my puppy is 3 months old , he has all the husky characteristics , the bad and good ones , i am just sending the whole story here coz i;ve been following this forum for so long , and i;ve seen many experts here and wanted to see wat would the experts thing of my puppy according to their experience Smile

Fyi : http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/alaskanhusky.htm
this is a very good breed , registered in many places in europ , its just not registable in the USA yet , and they r working dogs with many positive traits and abilities that r better than a husky

anyway , i know alot about dog psychology and behavior , its like a hobby , but am not an expert in Dog standards and thats why i came here Smile

I also think that he has something more in him. That said, I love the looks of him, he is gonna be amazing when fully grown! Is he as big as he looks in the first pic?

I also think that there is something else other than an alaskan Husky. That term really is so broad, it even stretches to incorporate a good portion of hound mixes if I remember correctly.

Either way, glad you're happy with your puppy.

As I have read it you would be correct with that statement. Alaskan Husky's are breed for sprint racing and increasing the speed of the dog has priority over any kind of breed conformation

I have a friend who has an alaskan husky ( who was pregnant when she was bought from another mushing kennel...they pups look very bully like)....but anyways, she looks pretty similar to your pup. I can't recall the kennel she came from, but it was a good working kennel. She has the same light coloring and smoother coat.

Glad your keeping him. If he's deceptive about the parents, who knows what would happen to the pup if you sent him back. When it comes down to it, what matters is that you and the dog are happy, regardless of breed.
