Thanks, She is adorable I love her and she is really smart, stubborn but smart.

I am wondering why one of her ears wont stand up though? Any ideas? She is a little over 4 months old, and is starting to get her adult teeth. I have read it can be because of that. Im just hoping nothing is wrong. Anyone else had this problem?

She is a doll Smile
Give it time it will stand up. Some times it takes one longer then the other.
I remember my GSD had one ear completely up and one down for like a month it was really cute and then after about a week it up.

well here is an update, and I got a few questions... as im a bit worried or confused... she is about 1.5 years now, and is still only aqbout 35 lbs. and has stopped growing, she still hasnt even blown her coat once yet? she is tiny compared to every husky she has run into? im thinking I may have gotten the runt or not a fully husky although her paper show she is. Anyone got any tips or suggestions. Well here she is.

That picture with the cat is hilarious! I wouldn't be worried honestly, the breed standard for females is 35-50 lbs. She looks a tad on the lean side, but so did Ghost until just recently when she started to fill out a bit. Kaiha will probably start filling out some in another 6 months or so, but even still she is within breed standard. She's probably just a more petite girl, and the Huskies that you've encountered have probably been poorly bred and are out of standard. The lack of coat blow isn't really a concern either, there are some Huskies that have a more constant shed year round instead of the big coat blows.

My Sheba will turn a year old on May 3 and she has consistently weighed in at 34 pounds for multiple months. She is about 21" , just a little bit over. Don't worry Smile.

Sheba also hasn't blown her coat either, not her puppy coat either. Hopefully she lets go of it soon, the wait is making me crazy!

Yeah, we just moved to Pasadena in December. I started an H2M2 group for Maryland, and we just had our April meet today. We have a facebook page if you're interested: https://www.facebook.com/groups/190452957669203/

I'll be posting the May meet up soon, and it will probably be either in Baltimore or back a little closer to you.

As far as filling out, Ghost stayed firmly at 41 lbs for about a year, and just recently brought it up to 45. She's tall though, actually a full inch out of standard.

Kay is only about 35 pounds and Sophie is 38 pounds. Sophie is on the lean side, she's still tall and lanky and she's 1.5 years old too.

Kaiha is so pretty. I would not be too worried about her weight. When we got our little girl Kerian she only weight 38 lbs and was about 2 years old she is not now almost 3 years and weights about 45 lbs.

I wouldn't worry - there are huskies at the park that are wayyy bigger than Stark and everybody looks at me all weird like I have a deformed husky - I just let them know that he falls within breed standard and those other "huge" huskies don't. Stark's pretty lean now too - but I read that huskies take up to two years to really fill out.

Also, a lot of people aren't aware of the difference between a Husky and a Malamute so they may just be thinking about the wrong breed in their own heads.

Nothing to worry about - you've got a gorgeous girl there!
