I have her for about a month, she's 3 months old and for some reason she's not furry as I imagined. Im starting to worry maybe she's mixed or something, is it because of spring and its pretty hot where I live? Or she will be like this forever?

My guess is she won't be super fluffy, but have the more standard husky coat. She's very pretty! Congratulations and welcome to the forum! Smile

So I shouldnt be worried? Shes just the not so fluffy type of a husky and the standart husky type is not actually so fluffy? And shes more brown than copper atm she will get brighter from what I understand, and the eyes will remain the same color or the sort of green one will eventually turn brown? Thanks for the fast reply im glad to join Smile

I got a husky puppy not to long ago she's now about 5 months and starting to get fluffy, she wasn't so fluffy at 2-3 months but eventually filled in a bit. You'll see minor shedding and you'll see her fill in I say she's a short coated husky like mine. Beautiful dog by the way. Very Happy Very Happy

No, you shouldn't be worried. Huskies have several different coats, the standard coat which is fluffy, but short, then the plush coat husky (I believe mine are considered plush) and then the wooly which is a much longer haired and quite fluffy.

Colors can change dramatically from puppy to adult, from what I've noticed, they start out very light, then there is a period of getting dark, and then they get light again with the dark shading.

Eye color, from what I've read, eyes can change for up to a year, but normally eye color is known very early. With the blue eyes, I think they become lighter as they mature. (I could be wrong on that though) but yeah, I'd say your puppies eye color will be pretty much what they are now, I do not foresee the greenish one turning brown at all.

She is so pretty!  I wouldn't worry; my husky didn't get furry until she was almost a year! She blew her coat around 11 months, and she looked sort of patchy and scrawny -- but it eventually filled out beautifully.

With your warm climate she's much less likely to be a super furry. Unlike my wooly boy Ami. Probably more like Z'ev:

This is not a great picture of my beautiful girl Rolling Eyes but it will give you an idea of her short coat at about 10-11 months of age.
