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.

According to breed standard, female huskies should weigh from 35-50 pounds, but that doesn't necessarily mean that she's unhealthy. Dogs that aren't bred well can certainly deviate from the standard.

To quote Claudia from another thread, "You should easily be able to feel his ribs, have a taper in his waist when you look at his body from the top, and from the side, he should have an abdomen tuck meaning from his ribs going toward his hips, his abdomen should not be the same level as his ribs."

My girl is 11 months and is roughly 40lbs.

We have a weigh in thread where everyone updates their dogs weight. Someone will link it, I'm sure.
Edit: JK you found it.

Koda is nearing 5 and 53lbs at 23.5" tall.
Ro is 19 months and fluctuates between 28-30lbs at just under 20".

Freya is 22 kg (50lb) at 7 months

I should also mention that Freya is a mix she's Sibe x Bull Mastiff. She's very muscular.

Yes it definitely depends on how well bred they are. Lycus is not a well bred husky weighing at 75+ lbs over a month ago and at 27". Way out of standard.

Wow! Full blooded husky or mixed with malamute? Watch her for joint problems, that is very large for a husky.

Breed standard is 35-50 lbs for females fully grown, 45-60 lbs for males. Of course the weight should be proportionate to height and many "breeders" out there try to make "big" huskies. It's not a good idea.... the bone structure of a husky isn't meant to be a large dog. They are medium sized dogs. If a dog is too far out of that standard they should NOT be bred and they should be watched carefully for joint issues.

My girls are 43 lbs (11.5 yrs old) and 28 lbs (5.5 months)
