I know Husky coat colors are many times a matter of opinion, or so it has been in my experience. So my question is, what color would you consider my Sibe? Smile

Kingsley is the same color and his breeder said he was a red. He's also registered as a red/white.

Red and white.

There's the copper red (your pup) and the light red (like my female in my signature).

I have always called her a copper, but I have never heard "copper" as a show/breed standard color. I just don't know. Red has always been lighter than Phoenix in my mind. Calling her a copper makes me feel kind of snobby, but calling her a red has gotten me dirty looks like I'm an idiot or something. Lol. For me there has always been the light red like Claudia's female, the copper red like my Phoenix, and then the red, which is basically the in between of the other two.

Awww...I have a matching husky! Smile

I think as a breed standard, "red" is the true color with variations of red. Any husky with a liver-colored nose has the red gene and is considered red. However, of the shades of red, ours would be considered copper.

Lisa, your Sibe is beautiful. Smile
Also, in the end I agree with you. l would personally prefer the different reds to have their own names to make it less confusing and more specific. But I also understand that can be difficult since many Husky puppies change colors as they age. Lol
Actually your Sibe is a perfect example of the difficulty of specific red names because your girl is a mix of copper and light red. Which would make one name difficult for her coat. Huskies can be so difficult and complicated. Even when they don't mean to be. Haha.

I call my girls, Sophie and Maya red. But if i'm being more specific, talking to husky people, or talking about colors i call them copper. Many people have called my girls brown but i just say they're red. Smile

I get these dirty looks from non-Husky people when I call her red because they picture the classic red Husky. l have had non-Husky and Husky people alike call her brown and give me looks that makes me feel like a snob because I call her copper. But all of you have made me feel better about calling her copper. Thank you! Smile

This is what a lot of non-Husky people think of when they think of a red Husky. Haha.
But I agree. I love the deep reds, the coppers are my favorites. Very Happy
I found this site and love their explanation of the different reds. Smile

Copper is a variation of red- this dog looks to be a dark copper (or dark red) like the sire of my girls- also registered red/white

90% of people say our girl is brown too. Only a select few have actually called her a red. I've had a lot of people ask "is she a rare Husky? I thought Huskies were only black or grey and white". I just laugh and let them know Huskies come in a variety of colors Smile

I agree with everyone, she's a copper Smile

For the lighter reds it would be considered light red, not dilute.

Dilute occurs a lot with our "blue" dogs (such as some pit bulls and weims) as well as can affect the whole coloring since it is a gene.

Husky coat colors lighten due to the amount of white present in the coat.

Thank you everyone! It is so great to hear other's call her copper. Smile
I think the reason it bothers me so much when people would call her brown is because those people also call her a boy. Even when I correct them they go on and on about how much of a boy she looks. But I digress. Thanks everyone for putting me at ease. Smile

People always think Maya is a boy, guess she just looks manly to some. I wonder how crazy people would get if you had a red pie bald...
