I have noticed that at least to me Simon still really looks like a pup more so than most huskies his age.  I wanted to see what you think because it could just be me. He is now 10 months old.
All of these pictures were taken this morning.

First he is one of the most unique looking husky I've ever seen. Second I think all huskies look young at times, or puppy-ish I think it's the nature of the breed. Miya is 22 months and many times I see puppy. He's beautiful, he's maturing nicely.

I agree Renee, some of those pictures seem to emphasize the puppy and then some (specifically those where he's in profile) he looks more adult.
Either way, he's a handsome dog with some unique markings ... I would have expected those goggles to have faded ....

To me, it's the goggles that make him look puppy-ish. The goggles tend to fade into adulthood which makes him look younger, but then again he is still young. I think once the goggles fade out fromunder the eyes he'll take on a more "mature" look. I still get people asking if my 9 yr old husky is a puppy and his mask has faded considerably.

He looks like a 10 month old puppy. His lines are also slow maturing, so keep that in mind as he ages. Denali really didn't start to look like a mature dog until he was around 3- now that he's about to turn 4 you can really tell he's a mature dog...completely opposite of how Keegan's lines are showing to mature.

Yeah I was looking at Keegan who is basically the same age and he looks a lot older. I am not worried but I just thought it was interesting he doesn't look like an almost one year old to me. He is still such a little guy. He is getting close to a year old and he still looks like a puppy to me.

Also I love how you know stuff about Simon's family. It's always fun to learn about his history. If you were to guess around what age would you expect him to reach his full height? I know he could continue to fill out for a few years. And I understand it would be a guess but I am just curious.

I would anticipate majority of his height around 18mos. Digit is not a large male, nor were his litter mates very big. His sister Mira is mistaken for a puppy frequently even though she's 4 now. It was one of my deciding factors behind deciding not to bring him into my own kennel. There were other reasons as well but his size was one big one.

Unfortunately I know less about Simon's mother

So not much to say on the age thing, I mean 10 months is still a puppy to me so I would expect him to look like a puppy. But His markings have really changed since you got him, and I had to comment on the guitar he has developed between his eyes, really unique Smile

Ha! I thought the same thing but didn't mention it because I figured no one else would see that. So cool.

It used to look like a heart or an arrow head. I kind of think it looks like a husky face now.

Elise, I hope you didn't take offense to that. Simon is one of the most handsome husky I have ever laid eyes on, although each husky is unique and individualized, he has by far the most unique coloring and mask ever!! I would take him in a heartbeat (shhh don't tell anyone, but I have truly fallen in love with your boy).

I think she meant she literally sees a husky face instead of a guitar. The body of the guitar could also very much pass as the head of a husky! you have a real head turner of a pup. I'm a little jealous.

Oh holy crap!! Lol, it does. Where on earth did you get him, and does his family have unique faces like him? How can a mask change and appear that way so dramatically?

I just wanted to say, he is GORGEOUS. Wow, he almost looks like a wolf, but you can tell he's a Siberian Husky. And, he looks like he has a husky silhouette between his eyes. It also looks like a guitar. Anyways, he looks like his right age. My Siberian Husky, Coco, is 10 months old, and she really doesn't look like she's her right age either.

I was confused as to what I you thought I was offended about. Yeah I meant that mark on his face looks like a husky face.
