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.

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: Husky size   Mon Apr 18, 2016 9:00 am

Hey, guys!
I have a 5 months old husky puppy - Harry.
I bought him from a show kennel, but I think he won't reach standard size of a husky. Sad
He is very small (Well, fro my view at least and i have never had a husky before).
His weight is a little over 17 kgs (34 pounds) and his height to the shoulder is a little less than 20 inches.


What do you think, is he the right size for his age? He is a very picky eater and sometimes won't eat anything for an entire day!
Just looks a little chubby, because he still has winter coat.
What was the size of your huskies around this age?
Thanks.

He is only a baby yet - at 5 months and 20" I would say he will definitely reach standard...maybe even exceed it. Son got Archer, a husky mix, at 4 months...Early on, he started out at 27#...Now, at just about 2, he is 65# and 23-24" tall. There's still a lot of growing to do to 1 year, even more, weight and a bit of height, from 1-2.

I'm with Amy and think you'll be fine size wise and he will get there. If you talk to the breeder you can also get a better idea at the growth rate for their lines. Some lines also just mature slower than other lines and that is totally normal.

My addition to the great advice is to look at the threads the weigh in, there is one that is closed that is 40 pages long, and then the current one, you can read height and weight on all of our puppies as they age. It will put your mind at ease that you pup is normal. Here is the current link...the older one is in the same sub forum

He's only 5 months old, he's got a lot of growing time and potential left. Be patient. You don't actually WANT a dog to reach maturity too early. Males, by standard should only max out at 23.5" at the withers and 45-60lbs.

He definitely has the stack figured out. Mine always sits down if I try to stack her.

Huh, he figured it out after a lot of time though Very Happy I used "stay" to teach him. I taught him to not move when I tell him to stack/sit/down and after that "stay"
