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.

Pictures please.

If so, see a vet to go over all possible causes.

It's difficult to assess with the picture being so small. Remember, a 15 mo old will still be somewhat gangly. How do her ribs feel?

This thread has loads of info:

Huskies aren't very......husky at all. They are a trim and very fit breed.

Amy is right. They mature late and gradually and can be very noodle-like for the first 2 years.

But, if she is really thin there may be some medical conditions involved. We can never know for sure even with good pictures, but the chances are pretty good that she is fine OR just adding a bit of food would do the trick.

It is normal to feel their ribs and spine.  They should not be protruding out from the skin, but you should be able to touch each rib and the spine.
