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.

I saw an add to buy a husky, and the woman sent me pictures, but now I'm not sure if they are purebred. The eyes are blue but the facial features looks odd? Please help.

When they are puppies it is really hard to tell. To me he looks mostly pure but when you are dealing with low quality backyard breeders you never really know without papers, and even papers can be iffy since AKC doesn't require any dna testing to prove purity before issuing the papers. If they have any other dogs on site of other breeds that you know of that might would help to know. He does have a kind of an odd head structure based on these pictures but it could just be angle.

Could be the angle like Jenn said, could also be the markings, markings can make a face appear more narrow, or broader, etc. Second pic, the eyes appear too wide set (almost Pitbull like in a way) but yeah, at this age, these two pics, it's really hard to be accurate.
