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.

Luna has been with me two weeks. she is 9-10 months old and the woman I got her from said she thinks she is husky mix of some sort. im new to the breed but have spent a solid week researching all of her needs as a husky. while she resembles pictures of other white husky pups her ears seem small and face seems longer than others-she has the double coat and other characteristics but I am no expert. I know a DNA testing is the best way to find out but im more curious than anything. does anyone have some insight?

How big is she? She does look at least mostly husky but there is "something " that seems a little different too. The longer feathers on her tail when the rest of her doesn't have them. Still being a puppy she could still have some growing but her legs seem a tad short, but could be photo angle. I find the whites harder to tell on. I could have bet money my white male was a German Shepherd mix. He's huge by husky standards, ears large, has hip dysplasia, but I did the embark DNA test and he came back pure.

she is just under 21 inches tall at the shoulder. she has very close hip and shoulder height measurements being off by maybe a half inch. she seems to be shedding her puppy fur and has lost a great deal of fur everywhere but her underbelly and tail

She's currently within standard for a female husky. She could be pure. Just of questionable quality like my boy. My boy's tail was the last to go too. Then he looked half bald for a time.

She looks full siberian to me, could be the puppy coat or now that we are about to go into winter. She very pretty! I have to dig up a pic I took at a dog show of this husky that was pure, had the longest fur on its tail. longer than lunas. Edit* found the pics

Aww she's very cute, congratulations! She likely has some husky in her or american eskimo. I think pure white coat has a higher probability in the eskimo mixes (google imo inu). She also resembles my friends white alaskan klee kai
