She looks like a big eared, long legged Husky puppy to me ... it's interesting that a lot of people know so much about Huskies and have never had one in their lives.  Ignore them.

btw - big ears and long legs, give her a while and she'll grown into them.  Pretty puppy!

Looks like a husky i have to remind myself every time i take spider out in public i get a wide range of what is spider. Most people think fluffy husky. Husky people seem to bitch about me having a wolf/husky in public. The point being most people dont know what they are looking at just agree with them and move on. In about 2 years there will be no mistaking you dog for something else

Cute puppy, how old is she?

Her eyes are very large and round, my first thought was if she actually is mixed, possibly it's with Malamute but that'd be about the only Malamute thing I see in her. I've always been very particular when it comes to ears on my Huskies, I don't recall any of them being as large as the ones your pup has (they are not ginormous though, and one of the reasons I asked her age) but, she also isn't a very fluffy Husky and fluff can hide just how big ears are so I could be wrong there, too. IF she is mixed with anything, I'd bet it's further back in her lineage. She is very pretty, and looks very much a Husky. I'm sure you love her to death no matter what, so don't worry about what other people say.

Arctic_wind, she is 11 weeks old. people keep telling us she is mixed with German Shepard. They like to point out her bark as well as how narrow her snout is, is why they assume she is mixed.

Lots of people with lots of opinions. Wink We had a guy in our obedience class tell me that our boy "HAD" to have some wolf in him. And another person say he "HAS" to be part Malamute.

Wow, some long legs for only 11 weeks! I'm not seeing German Shephard. Her snout doesn't look to narrow to me and from what I've noticed in my huskies is that females generally have a more fox like face. She is a cutie for sure.

Funny you say fox like, my dad joked saying she was mixed with a fox! I love her with all my heart regardless, it's just funny to hear everyone's opinions of my own dog not realizing they might just sound dumb.

Hahaha!! That's so funny. When we first got Sasha and my dad and sister in law saw her, they both said she's not full husky because her eyes are brown and according to them, huskies can't have brown eyes!

Hmm too much of a stop for a gsd. Big ears. Opinions are useless people see what they want to see. Someone told me i had the worst bred husky he had ever seen. So now spiders breed in public is "badly bred husky"

So i was speaking with someone today who told me despite the dna test, spiders mom is a husky. She was a DNA verified mid content wolf with only husky mixed in. The thing is she was an f7. At what point does a wolfdog become a dog? And at what point would the breeder i got spider from be breeding wolfy looking huskies instead of wolfdogs. I think with foxes its like 7 or 8 generations.

She's still looking like an awkward husky puppy. Some take a while to grow into their ears. Some lower quality dogs never really do. My big white male always makes people think he's a white GSD but he's been DNA tested pure.

I do not believe there is a hard and fast cutoff where a hybrid goes from being a hybrid and just a dog. Those kinds of cutoffs are determined more by your state. Here, it's 10%. Over 10% content then it is a hybrid and requires paperwork and permits. Depending on the ego of the WD community representative you speak with on any given day they may say anything below 10% is just as dog as well. Some places say any detectable content makes it a hybrid. The embark DNA test has detected down to less than 2% content. That was on a dog whose content was 9 generations back. To be legally safe it's best to consider any detectable content to still be a wolf-dog, because it is.

Colorado goes purely off looks. If it looks like a wolf its a wolf if it looks like a dog its a dog. Where i am, legally i could have a tiger in the backyard and not need a permit. Wolfdog groups seem to be more of an ego thing then an actual being helpful thing. Also spider is an anomaly (low content high percentage), and the person that said her dam being an f7 made her half dog, also said the anomaly was impossible. I consider spider a wolfy husky. When people ask if she has wolf in her i dont lie about it but if people dont ask i dont advertise it i just call her a husky mix.

She looks like a regular husky to me. A little big on the ears, but a wide-eyed bright little pup!

Trust me, it stings whenever people tell you that your dog isn't a husky when you know it is. People used to always ask me if my Lightning was a full husky just because they'd never seen a sable coated one before. Always brought up the odd conversation of explaining my dog's 'unique' coat color. Don't mind them and keep on keeping on. You and your little one will be fine. Even if she weren't a full-blooded husky, I pray you'll love her all the same!

I really get a kick out of people when they ask me what type of dogs I have ... my response is simply "Huskies"

That really riles them since I have on large, brown/white (Alaskan) Husky; one black/white husky Siberian Husky; and one 'typical' silver/grey/white Siberian Husky.

Normally the "discussion" stops there and turns to how they manage to live in the Texas heat (it was only 105 yesterday - they were all crashed in the house, like I was!)

I've found, in the long run, to let people think whatever they want. I'm comfortable that my two Sibes are close to purebred and my Alaskan is - well - an Alaskan. If I DNA'd any of them, it'd be the Alaskan, 'cause I am curious what some breeder put together in his makeup.
