Picture of Storm taken while he was still in foster care in Kansas (sometime between August 2010 and April 2011)


Today, working on his tan.


I know it's not a good comparison, but you can still see some difference. I look at some of the other pictures, and his face even looks slimmer.

Here's a better comparison:

Storm, 115+ lbs, in foster care in KS sometime between August 2010 and April 2011:


Today, 94.4 lbs, just a few minutes ago:

WHOA! Looks like a totally different dog! Storm actually looks normal now!

Is that loose skin hanging over his rear leg when he's sitting (in the "today" picture)? Or is it just a weird angle?

It's a weird angle plus his fur makes it look funny too.

Braiden is 26" and he weighs 62 pounds He is 18 months old. Should I try to put more weight on him? I know Huskies fill out until around 2 -1/2. What is your target weight for Storm? Thanks.

Braiden still has time to fill out, so I personally wouldn't look to put more weight on him just yet since he isn't 2 years old yet.

We're looking at about 80-85 lbs for Storm as his ultimate goal weight, but we'll have to see what a 5 lb weight loss will look like and then go another 5 more if needed, and maybe even 5 more after that depending on how his muscles tone up during the winter season since we haven't done much hiking in the summer! Also, keep in mind that Storm is 6 years old.

Thanks. Just wondering how much BraiBrai will weigh ultimately. He seems plenty heavy now LOL. At least he willingly jumps into the Tundra now.

Braiden could be a different build that Storm too. I don't even know if Storm will have more of a show line or working line build. Right now, Storm looks like he has long legs and if he loses another 5-10 lbs he may end up with a more working line build that show build. IMO, Storm also has a long body, so that may also contribute to him looking more like the working line once he's lost all his weight. I tell ya what, though...since he's dropped 20 lbs so far, he's so much more energetic and 'light' - he's even running with the pack at the meet-ups! So cool to see his transformation!

Braiden has long legs and still looks lanky. He is in proportion with length and height though. He is over the height standard, and had his "doggie "operation last week. Skyla has more of a short stocky body with wider chest. You are doing such a good job with Storm's weight reduction. He is so lucky to have ended up in your family. Good job!!
