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.

PostSubject: New mixed breed puppy! Is she husky?!   Wed Jun 17, 2015 2:31 pm

Hi all! I'm Nikki from CA and my husband and I just adopted a 14 week old puppy, Penelope (nn Penny!) She's 12 lbs. and the rescue we got her from didn't have any info on her or her litter mates other than they were left in the parking lot in a box at about 3 weeks. I'm attaching a few pictures and was hoping you could help me guess what she may be! She is on the small side and I don't think a purebred, but lot's of people's guesses have been part husky. Figured you would be the people to know! Thank you!

Those ears scream Corgi. Hard to tell on husky at that age. As she ages her other half will stand out more. She does seem like there might be something in there that has a little longer hair and her tail curls. What a rough beginning for such a cute pup.

Yes, corgi has been the other breed guessed a few times! The rescue was actually a golden retriever rescue, and her litter mates were fluffier with floppy ears like goldens. Sometimes Penny even looks chihuahua! Can't wait for her DNA test to get here because I am so excited to know! Smile Thank you for your response!

Hi all! Thought I'd update - we did a DNA test and the results came back as most people's first guesses! 25% chihuahua, 25% husky, 25% swiss white shepherd, and 25% something (likely toy) mix. She's up to 16.5 lbs now and shows no signs of growing into her ears! Never known anything about huskies so I'll be sticking around and learning from all of you. Thanks!

Oh my goodness, those ears. A big wind and she could fly away. lol. She is too cute. Interesting how specific on the shepherd the test was. I wasn't sure how detailed they could get.

I love that bottom picture where she's looking straight at the camera. But, my god, if she ever grows into those ears - and they mostly do - she's gonna be one big dog!!! She's got some fairly decent sized paw on her, too - another give-away for eventual size.

I really don't think those ears are size indicators. They remind me A LOT of a corgi. I doubt she will get huge.

Jenn-That's why I'm skeptical of these DNA tests. 25% Swiss White Shepherd? That is a pretty obscure breed to have such a high showing in a random mixed dog. She is adorable regardless.

Sara - I agree that it's an obscure, specific breed to show up! But these tests are done via saliva, sight un-seen, and when I looked up Swiss pics, they look exactly like my girl's litter mates! My Penny has a shorter, less fluffy coat than her litter mates, but otherwise I would say it's the breed she most closely physically resembles!

I must say, I'm shocked there was no Corgi listed. Those ears, man!
