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.

We brought home our little guy tonight. He has one of the most unique coats I've seen. At a distance, he appears a very light red/tan with white points. However, when you get him in the sun and are next to him you can see his coat is banded. He has hairs in different parts of him that are different colors, and those areas have black on them - like what you'd see with agouti or sable. It's odd because I've never seen such a light colored agouti before! His dad is AKC Great Pyrenees, and his mom is a Siberian Husky. We don't know if mom's mom (grandma) is AKC Sibe, but the grandfather (moms dad) was AKC Siberian Husky. I've seen dad's two other litters aside from his, and ALL his pups leaned heavily towards the Pyrenees side, with facial badger markings and primarily white bodies. Out of his litter, all were white except two black and white, and our boy who is reddish? He has his first vet appointment Friday. He seems pretty big for being just 8 weeks, but dad comes from a very large line of Great Pyrenees. Mom is a tall Sibe as well but looks very much 100% Sibe. She is black and white, and dad is your typical looking Great Pyrenees. I'd LOVE to know your guys's thoughts! <3

So the "breeders" are purposefully mixing pyrenees with siberian (since you mentioned this is the 2nd litter)? To what end? It's hard to say what the pyrenees genes will do to the siberian portion. Since pyrenees genes tend to force the coat white over time you may just end up with a lightly patterned cream dog once the puppy fur sheds off. Considering the pyrenees, it being a larger pup is to be expected. make sure that you are feeding a large breed good quality puppy food. Too rapid of growth can lead to growth defects in the joints. Huskies aren't meant to be large dogs and genetics when mixing in with large dogs and oversized base stock can be a little hairy health-wise.

I'm a veterinary nurse, I understand all of that. She's not breeding anymore. She was wanting to bring about I think a mix between the two but said this was it and they'll all be getting neutered/spayed. It's a little ironic because he's one of the pups I really liked but I didn't try to get, etc. He was actually in a different home, went with them a little too early. They couldn't keep him (to the point he had to find a home ASAP by the end of the day) and my friend couldn't take him back. We stepped up and said we'd take him. We were wanting another pup, but were looking at a different litter through someone else for later in March. This is how he came to us at 8 weeks. Thank you for your reply though! Smile We'll be posting pics as he ages ^_^ <3

Cute pup, he looks similar to this buddy from google images (husky pyrenees mix). I am not too sure about the correct terminology for all the colors :oops:

I think the color terms go out the window when its a mix. My butcher has a pair of Great Pyranees/Newfoundland mixes. Started out almost black, are now 2-3 years later, much more of a rusty red color. Oh. And slobbery as hell. As well as the biggest, loviest dufus's you ever want to see I love you I love you I love you
