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.

Hi all,

I used to visit this forum to get some insight about Sibes but was always left with some questions about my own dog so I decided to join and post, hope I´m doing it right.

So I have a 14 month old Husky and after reading the AKC standards I kinda figured Snow is a small dog, and also he is short haired. Also I beleive that the tail is not within standards. He is around 21 inches tall and last time I checked about 55 pounds. I´ll attach some pictures, please share your thoughts!

Thanks in advance!

I can't help with your questions....but I did want to say that he is beautiful! He could be a twin to our sweet girl. Short hair, fluffy tail and face markings are almost identical!

I had a Shiba Inu that was a little too tall & lean to fit the breed standards, but she was 100% Shiba.

Size wise he is within breed standard, but when getting down to show quality details he's not a show dog, but looks like a good pet and running partner. His tail I believe would still fall under a snap tail even though it doesn't have the usual snap tail curl. It still curves too tight and would be a fault in the ring. Tail should not curve hard enough to touch the body. Looking for a nice C or sickle shape. His ears are a little large and wide set but his coat being short isn't a problem. Huskies have a few different coat lengths that are seen and acceptable. The really fluffy stuff is more a fault than the shorter stuff as long as he still maintains the double coat. Welcome to the forum!

This thread has a lot of pictures for reference and the breakdown of how the features line up if being judged for actual competition. Photobucket kinda screwed us on some of the images but there are still a few in there that have been broken down that you can see.

He is a lovely boy, and looks like most of the huskies I see in my part of Florida.

He is very pretty. His size does fall into standards so you're good there and the only coat fault that I know of, as far as coat length, is if the husky is a wooly, so you have no problem there for sure Wink coat wise, I *think* the only other fault is if the dog has a Merle coat (coloring) to get the best idea though of how your dog conforms to the standards, a pic of him in the stacking position is most ideal. There is a thread in the show dogs section that used to be fairly active and our most prominent member here, who's knowledge of breeding/conformation/etc. (Huskymom09) would offer her knowledge in regards to pics and questions posted. There is a lot to be learned from that thread, it's pretty informative!
