He or she almost looks like the size/stature of a great pyrenees, but this is also very hard to tell from just looking at pictures. They could just be a heavier, more "stocky", thicker husky. Without papers/registration, knowing the breeders or the pups parents, it'd probably be pretty difficult to say they're absolutely 100% husky or not.

He looks husky but not in breed standard for sure. The bone structure and the hair suggest there could be something else in there though.

Could be full Husky but something about him says Malamute might be in him. The bone structure around the eyes looks more Malamute than Husky, but he could still be pure Husky. Beautiful dog!

That pup looks like a husky x malamute. Head shape and muzzle looks more mally to me. Mals imho have a much more pronounced stop and a slightly wider muzzle than a husky. Lovely dog regardless. <3

OH wow, I only saw the red dog (first pic) when I posted earlier. Your puppy is ADORABLE! Is the red dog the father?

Interesting. Mother has an unusual bone structure around the eyes as well ( I call it the brow/forehead but not sure of the proper term) that is more Malamute looking. Her ears are awesome but seem spaced further apart than a Husky, too small to be Malamute though. Puppy is awesome and looks very much like my boy Kohdi did as a pup. Same face, ears, fluff. Even though it's hard to tell as a puppy of this age whether it's pure or not, seeing the parents leads me to believe there is *possibly* a malamute mixed in.

I agree, there's a Malamute or two in there somewhere. I'd guess father parent or at most grandparent was Malamute and mother, maybe 3-4 generations back.

That said, depending on the part of the country, any dog that remotely resembles a Husky is called a Husky and, all sled dogs are Huskies to common folks. That's how it is here to the uneducated. We have fluffy huskies, big huskies, long haired huskies, short haired huskies, floppy eared huskies, sleek coat huskies, straight tailed huskies and, curly tailed huskies. LOL

it looks like malamute/Siberian husky with a possibility of Samoyed to me. i have seen husky/Samoyed mixes for sale out this way on Craigslist they had a similar coat look and face structure on the puppies.

This is a good example of the two breeds together that shows the heavier bone structure to the Malamute face, versus the Husky, and where the ears are set as well. Keep in mind that if the dog is a mix, it will have a mixture of the traits (blue eyes for example) from each.
