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.

Hello! I just joined the forum today. I have shared a pic of my beautiful dog. He came into my life about 6 months ago. He was a stray and I took him in. He is the second husky I have ever owned, the first being back when I was in high school. Since I am not an expert, I am not sure if he is a white husky or if he is a mix (not that it matters, I love him nonetheless). Any thoughts or opinions? He is all white with blue eyes. No markings.
I just wanted to join so that I could share stories and have support. Huskies are the best, aren’t they?!?!New to Forum 5f06c010

@Lostmaniac Yes! I have been asked if he’s a Shepsky, but I always reply that I don’t know because I have no background on him. He does howl/talk to communicate like huskies do, but he also is REALLY good at listening to commands (the husky I had when I was a teenager would listen only when HE felt like it lol).

@dvflyer 🤣😂

Welcome!
Congrats on your new pup!

I've got a white "shepsky" (at least, that's what is on his papers from the rescue.)…
Why I believe they were probably right:
- he has a more long rectangular body, shape is not as square as a typical husky
- he is 76 pounds (out of standard for the husky breed, but within standard for a GSD)
- he is obedient and practically teaches himself commands by observing what I say and do
- he is aloof to strangers and does not want to be touched by them (will growl)

I think it's always hard to tell without a DNA test though!
It never mattered enough to me for me to send in a test, I guess it's enough to describe him as "our dog". Very Happy

The whites tend to be harder to tell. They are often thought to have GSD in them even when they don't. I too have a white husky that looks far more like a white GSD than a husky. He's 80+ pounds and has large ears and hip dysplasia. I've had supposed GSD "breeders" think he has GSD in him, but he was tested and came back pure husky. Wisdom Panel has a pretty nice test for not a lot of money if you really want to know for sure. There are uses for finding out since some breeds are prone to certain issues and knowing could help you with his health moving forward.

Personally, I think he's pure. Aside from slightly bigger ears and his longer toes I can't see anything in your current picture that just screams GSD to me.

The eyes are a bit more round than preferred and the ears possibly slightly out of proportion- without knowing the age of the dog its really hard to say if that's a phase or genetic. Overall nothing about the dog screams mix breed, not the easiest photo to evaluate but enough to get a general idea. A wisdom panel like Twister suggested may be your best bet.

@shepsky13 thank you for your input!

@twisterII Thank you for your suggestion on a DNA test that is affordable. I am looking into it! I would love to know my dog’s history.

@huskymom09 I appreciate your input. When I took him to the vet in March, the vet calculated that he was about a year old at the time, which would make him about a year and a half right now. He might have some more growing to do. Either way, I think his ears are the cutest 😊

@RAHUSKY Thank you! I feel so blessed to have found him! I love you
