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.

First of all, look at this little snuggler:

Please excuse his harness--we're currently using the tether method for general housetraining purposes.

Hahah, now that's out of the way.. I just have a few general questions about my new boy. I did search the threads prior to posting and wanted to see if the situation merits further consideration.

Haku is a rescue pup so we aren't sure (we suspect he is) if he's a mixed breed. No one knows what dad was, but here's his mom (photos from the foster):

She's around 45lbs or so and at a good lean weight according to the vet.

First question is a fun one--any breed mix guesses? Or does he look pretty strongly Husky to y'all?

Second question -- I'm debating whether or not he needs to be on a Large Breed Puppy formula. Right now, he's on Wellness Puppy (switched from 4Health with no stomach upset) and doing well. Poop looks good, no digestive troubles. Because I don't know what his sire was, I'm unsure if he's going to be 50lbs+. Right now, he's about 13.5lbs at 10 weeks (he'll be 11 weeks on Monday) old.

Any input on the need for Large Breed Puppy food?

I should also add that I'm planning on pushing his neuter as close to a year as possible. The rescuer wanted to neuter him at 12 weeks old and I was able to convince her that this isn't the best decision, in my opinion, and is not what I'll do with my dog.

Mom looks to be a wooly husky, possibly a bit of Malamute, though that is iffy guess.

Pup looks to have normal coat I see in that pic. I would hazard full husky but would need better pictures of structure.

Cute. Welcome.

Realizing I don’t have many pictures of him simply standing so I’ll try to grab some today.

Cute pup!

I think any quality puppy food is fine. We used Kirkland Nature's Domain Puppy food until they were about a year.
