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.

Every dog is a little different James, I still say they will eventually stay up. Also, my gsd pup, didn't have all her adult teeth in until 8 months old, so 6-7 months is just a typical number, oddly enough her ears never flopped, bigger ears than most huskies. It just depends, still think they will stand. And what a lovely pup you have, I love the deep copper.

Thanks @miyasmomma he does have rather larger ears haha, I'm very protective of him and get worried that maybe he got his ear hurt or something playing or something and he loves sleeping squished up against the sides of his crate even tho he has PLENTY of room lol I think he likes the cool bars? And yea he still has a couple months before that mark and he's come along way in 2 so another 2 will probably see a huge difference. He's growing so fast , he's so well behaved though

Looks like a husky to me ! On the other hand does my dog look like a husky ? I got her from craigslist and saw both parents where husjy but many people tell me that she doesn't look husky. I'm starting to think otherwise too !

I didn't think my boy was pure husky either, others didn't so as well, but he dna tested as pure as can be. I think the white ones throw people more than the "normal" or "traditional" marked ones as far as telling if they are pure. Until she's older it's hard to tell. Even huskies go through an awkward ear phase but most do eventually grow into them.

Which DNA test did you get ? I've been wanting to DNA test her just out of curiosity but I don't know if I should spend the money on it.

Jenn did the Embark test, expensive, but worth it imho. It is also the most accurate dna test available.

Being a craigslist puppy of questionable background I would probably do it if you ever have a spare $200 sitting around (there are coupon codes out there to help with cost). It will test for the mdr1 gene mutation that will let you know if she will have any sensitivities to ivermectin, an ingredient (though small) in commercial heartworm preventatives. It also looks for many hereditary diseases that she could be a carrier for that she could potentially develop as she ages. I learned a lot from mine. It will estimate your dogs proper size as well so you would get an idea of her adult size approximately if you did it while she was still a pup.
