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.

Does anyone know if huskies that are all white ten to be less furry? Is that a trait or is it just Aurora? Her fur seems to be very short and thin compared to anyother huskies Ive seen.

Husky coats are certainly not uniform. They come in a wide variety of "styles". Some are short-haired, average, and then wooly hukies. Undercoats can be standard or "fluffy" (Koda has this weird fluffy coat that sort of molts all year round instead of thick and in chunks like normal huskies-- I've seen it on a couple of others before-- for those of you who remember Linzi, her Ice was like that).

So to answer your question, I don't think it's a trait of white huskies, but rather just that husky coats are varied and there are many different types Smile

It's a husky thing... you wouldn't understand.

All 6 white huskies I've met all had a thicker coat but less of an undercoat....and they ALL shed like crazy! (Just the ones I've met).

I think it just varies between dogs, not based on color. Siku has a much shorter coat than Elara and Elara has a lot more undercoat and is more fluffy. I've seen a fluffy white sibe and a thin coated one before.

I agree with the previous replies. Coat type and "fluffiness" have nothing to do with color and everything to do with genetics. Some are more dense than others, some are longer than others, and you will even find a wide variety of different textures from coarse to super soft too.

I get a lot of comments from people asking why my sibe is not as fluffy as most others since he has a shorter coat than most. I've even been accused of and questioned about shaving my husky because of his short coat. Suspect
