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.

Ahhh my husky is not such a baby anymore. She’s 6 months old today and a whopping 42 pounds. A lot bigger then I expected her parents were on the smaller end. My guess she only has a few more pounds on her. How much more would you guess she would grow?
Also did anyone else start running with there husky at this age?
We normally walk about 2 miles most days but I haven’t started running with her yet. Should I still hold off on that I know some people say to wait even over a year but everyone and
every vet has a different opinion.

You need to hold off on structured running until the growth plates on the legs close. There are bumps on his front legs where the growth plates are at. Once they close those bumps will go away. It looks like they are still open in your pictures so I would hold off.

Some dogs grow hard and fast early and some are slow and don't do the mass of their growing until late. Each line is a little different. He might not get much taller but will do some filling out. I would imagine you will see him around 50-60 pounds.

That’s what I thought that’s why I haven’t started running with her yet. I just know so many people who say yes at 6 months and then others say no. I wanted opinion from other husky owners.
Wait are those bumps normal? Or is that a problem?
Yeah she’s already weights more then her mom so she’s definitely gonna be a big girl!

Let's make sure we're talking about the same thing. "Those bumps" that are about 3 inches above her foot are the bone ends - but also where the shank bone grows from. Until those close off or seal, they're tender and apt to be damaged by continued forced running. Note that any amount of running that she desire to do around your back yard or an enclosed tennis court, for examples, is pretty much okay - as long as she has the choice to stop when she gets 'pooped.'

So, those bumps are completely normal and well go away when she stops growing up...

Okay, good I got nervous she’s my first husky let alone bigger dog. I’ve had shibas the past 10 years. Yeah I don’t ever force her to run she does that on her own. Thank you guys
