Maya is my 4.5 month old husky mix puppy!



Her father is a purebred husky and her mother is a chow chow x australian shepherd cross. Many people often mistake her for an akita, german shepherd dog, or shiba inu. She's built much more like her siberian dad than her mixie mom, and has the total husky personality. She was acquired from a good friend of mine who had an accidental litter. Although I am not an advocate for mix breeding/ backyard breeding, I love my girl and feel lucky to have a healthy pup of sound structure and mind! She is incredibly intelligent- almost too much for her own good! We have completed basic puppy training class and are enrolling in intermediate soon. I look forward to training in agility and formal obedience with her in the future. I think she will be a great candidate for flyball too as she is quick and nimble and can leap like an antelope! Over-all, she has a very mellow, friendly, and well-mannered demeanor! Smile

I'm going to start Maya's scrapbook off with some photos I took yesterday of her playdate with her littermate, Yolandi (Maya is the red "urajiro" (as i'm told they call it in shibas and akitas) with the black mask and Yolandi is the fawn pup with the black mask)

Thanks! They really are sweethearts! Although a little devilish when together Wink I believe they were plotting to dig to the other side of the world, hehe. It took them a few minutes to recognize each other, but they were quickly playing like best friends. I do think they could sense that they are related! I'm working on getting together with a few of the owners of other puppies from the litter- the fortunate thing about getting Maya from my friend is that I know where all of the puppies went!

They get their black muzzles from their momma, Shera. Here's a pic of her! (she's the one on the right, obviously hehe)



Of the litter, there were seven pups total; 5 of which had black muzzles. The other two are absolutely stunning as well. Here's a picture of Wizard and Toshimi, the two of Maya's siblings without black masks:


Wizard, 6 weeks <3 He's definitely the most husky looking of the bunch


Maya and Toshimi, 6 weeks


and a recent picture of Toshimi!

Thanks everyone! Lol Len- I think the wind may have been blowing in her eyes in that picture. The pups from this litter all seem to have quite the relaxed nature though! & Jennifer- it really is great to see siblings play! Maya and Yolandi were like partners in crime!

Here is a pic I took today of Maya:



Today she is 5 months old!


& Here are a few photos from this past week. Maya's favorite sleeping position! I've heard this is typical of huskies!

She's so cute! I love how she has a white tipped tail and her brother has a black tipped one!

That would be so fun to know where all the pup's litter mates are. My Elara's brother lives not too far from me and I really want to meet up with them sometime. It would be interesting if they remember each other cause they are almost 2yrs old now!

Thanks Sara! You're huskies are gorgeous... and I see that you show Elara! I want to get into showing eventually. When I am in the right place to get a second dog, I will certainly be looking for a show husky! That or a pembroke or cardigan welsh corgi... <3 I've actually been practicing my handling skills with Maya even though she is a mutt, lol! I am wondering if there are "fun shows" so to speak, where mutts can participate in conformation style competitions? Anyway, after Maya and I complete intermediate training class at petsmart, we will be enrolling in beginner agility training at Allen's Farm in Moorestown NJ. I'm very excited to get into agility. I'd like to do trial obedience and flyball eventually with her as well..

Anyway here are some recent pics of Maya at 5 months old!


pretending to be a show dog... look at her nice topline!


wearing the new dress that I made her!

I really really love the coloring of your pup. That black muzzle with the reddish brown makes her a one of a kind.

Shaina- thanks! hehe, she is so great to cuddle with I love you

Len- thank you! It's interesting because all of the puppies looked very similar in color as newborns, but as they have grown and developed, each is completely unique! Maya's color continues to change as she grows... recently the markings on her face have been changing a lot, just like a husky's would at this age! Right now, she has particularly distinct half- spectacles underneath her eyes... I love them! =)

Today I figured I would upload pictures of Maya (and a few of her litter mates) at 6 weeks of age. Get ready for puppy cuteness overload! hehe.

Last weekend, I got together with the owners of four of Maya's littermates! The pups were one week short of 6 months old in these pics. What a great time! It was really touching to see 5 of the 7 seven litter mates reunited! I'm sure they knew they were all siblings. Because they are mixed breed puppies (1/2 husky, 1/4 chow chow, 1/4 aussie), it's really interesting to observe the similarities and differences in structure and temperament in the pups. The puppy play date included sisters Maya, Toshimi, Yolandi, and Tunnel, brother Franklin, and big "uncle" Champ (my friend's boxer lab mix). What a difference between Franklin and the girls! Frank, at nearly 50 pounds, is almost twice the size of the girls (who vary between 24-30 pounds) Frank and Tunnel have more of a chow chow build, stout and stockier with thicker coats, whereas Maya, Toshimi, and Yolandi are taller, longer, and just more husky-like in structure. All of the pups have black spots on their tongues from their chow heritage except for Maya! The most endearing trait of the pups, I thought, was that they all have the same voice (we couldn't tell who was barking or growling!) and love to have their bellies pet (will literally melt onto their backs for a tummy scratch). Anyway, here are some photos from the playdate!
