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.

so, I’ve tried googling this and i can’t really find the answer I’m looking for, but basically I’m buying a puppy in the near future and the mother weighs about 45 pounds and is 21 inches tall while the father is about 21 pounds 20.5 inches tall, the breeder has explained to me that the father was the runt of the litter and was half the size of his siblings, now what I’m wondering is will my puppy come out smaller than usual because of this? or will the mothers weight balance things out ? If anyone’s had any past experiences with litters like these please help me out with any information or tips.

Wow 21lbs seems very tiny! I have never seen a pure bred husky of that size. If you really want a pure bred Siberian husky I would pass on this breeder? I have two litter mates one being the runt and the difference between my two is ~6 lbs. Not all litters are the same obviously but Idk breeding the runt of a litter seems like a bad idea to me (like why?).

My sister got a "pomsky" from kijiji, the dad was supposedly less than 10 pounds pom and the mom was a full size husky and this "pomsky" is 50 pounds at 1yo... So who knows what you'll end up with. Shocked

the pup could go larger than the dad, but I would question the quality of the breeder. Reputable breeders won't breed anything that is out of standard and that male is grossly out of standard. I would question whether he's even pure despite the claim of being a runt. Even runts can go standard, albeit on the low side often. It also brings into question what medical issues did the dog have that was the cause of the runt problems and are those issues something that will be passed on to the litter.
