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.

So, we adopted our wonderful Blue a year ago. The organization we adopted her from told us she was a Husky mix, as did our vet based on her coat coloration. In everything else she is pure husky, i.e. build, appearance, and personality (which is amazing!). After looking up images of Piebald huskies, I'm almost convinced she is purebred. She has light apricot spotting on her back, tips of ears, and spotting (freckles) on her muzzle. Has anyone else seen this in a pure husky? It doesn't matter to us, I'm just curious, I guess.

I don't think I would say 100% Husky, she looks like she could be mixed with Husky though. From the shape of her muzzle in the 2nd picture as well as her tail seems very short i'm not sure what else could be in there (i'm thinking maybe Samoyed?)

Looks mostly husky to me. If your curiosity gets the best of you can use this, http://www.canineheritage.com. I did this test on my Wooly (shown below on the right) since I thought he might have a mix, came back pure Siberian.

Looks mostly siberian to me too... however, there is definitely something "off" with her coat. I'd say a "poorly bred" siberian, which just means that the breeder didn't take much care to conform to standards, not that she's a bad dog Smile

She's beautiful though! Congratulations Smile

Thanks everyone! She is definitely the best pup (imo) ever! I think we will do the canine heritage test just to settle our curiosity.

I would guess husky mix as well, doesn't look pure to me but she is gorgeous nonetheless. I know it really doesn't matter whether she's pure or not, I say the same about my boy.
