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.

My husky is 45 pounds but I feel she is too small/ short she is about 1 year and half and they told me when I got her that she was the runt but is that correct.

Looks/ sounds fine to me. Our 1+year old female is about that weight.

What makes you feel that she is to small or short? Google "husky breed standard" to give you an idea of the height and weight one would expect from a husky.

Because people look at her weird and say she is to short and they even ask is she a husky? I have had other huskys and the female I had was taller. Do u happen to know at what age they stop growing? Could it be because she was the runt? I would lover her regardless I just want to make sure she is okay compared to other husky sizes

Not sure about the mini siberian thing.

As for this girl, standard calls for a height between 20-22" for female and a weight between 35 and 50 pounds. Indiscriminate breeders have been breeding them larger than standard which skews peoples expectation. So - your gal sounds spot on.

She is beautiful. My little girl is the same size as your girl, and Mishka will be 5 in a couple of weeks. A well bred Husky is rather small (they are a medium sized breed...I believe a Beagle is also considered a medium, so a Husky is not a very big dog) I'd say your girl is where she should be.
