  1. Hi everybody! I wanted to get others opinions on my husky puppies’ facial markings! I rescued him at 4 months old and he is now 6 months old! His mask around his eyes seems to be fading a bit but not as quickly as I anticipated. He also has spots going up his nose and I’m hoping they stay! Do you think the spots will stay into adulthood? Will the mask around his eyes completely fade? I’ve noticed his coat around his back and legs is starting to grow a bit of white under the chocolate. He also has super floppy ears and I haven’t noticed them starting to prick more with age, do you think they’ll stay floppy? I attached photos for reference, the first was when we first got him (4 months old), the second at 5 months, and the last at 6 months! Side note: His name is Oskar and I will love him regardless of how his physical features change over time. I am a first time Husky owner and am just curious!
  2. Hi all, I am new to this forum but was looking for some advice for my 6-month old husky! He is very playful, enjoys walks and is very strong! However, since he was around 5 months of age, he started to show an arched back. This was accompanied with pretty severe muscle tremors (severity: 9/10). We took him to the vet and, after examinations and blood tests, we were told that his new food may not be suitable for him (we had weaned him onto his new kibble completely the before these symptoms occurred). So we were told to put pup onto a gluten-free diet, which we did and the tremors have reduced drastically but haven’t gone away completely (they’re around a 2/10 now). Our pup’s arched back is still present and I’m not sure what this could be. I’ve been scouring the internet constantly for over a month and I’m still not sure what it could be. The veterinary surgeon thoroughly examined his back numerous times and she could not feel any signs of trauma and/or abnormalities. Our pup isn’t that keen to sit anymore, and it can take him a bit longer to do so, so I’m concerned about what this could be. We have used a harness on him since he was very young to avoid straining his neck. But Reading up about IVDD makes me wonder if this is what it is because the usual age of onset is 3 years. Does anybody have any ideas? I have attached some pictures of what this back arch looks like. Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you
  3. My 60lb, 9 month old, Siberian Husky (Mac), will only eat his kibble if there is either water or bone/chicken/beef broth mixed into it and slightly soaked into it. Most of the time he just laps up the liquids and then pushes on the food with his nose to squeeze more liquids out, when he can't get anymore flavorful liquids out of his bowl and/or semi soaked kibble, he starts to whine and push his bowl around looking for more. Sometimes he eats all of his food, probably 1/3 of the time. I've tried adding fresh chicken or beef to it with veggies all chopped up fine, and he just ends up picking those out unless I put a lot of liquids in the bowl and he will chomp down everything sometimes. I just want him to be eating enough food for his age, I rarely give him treats and only feed 2-3 times a day, lots of walks/runs. He will literally wait days until I give him food flooded with broth or water.. Can someone help me? This is frustrating, I know this is the only kibble he will touch because I've tried a lot of them and this one is by far the winner by a long shot. Taste of the Wild, with or without the Ancient Grains. Thanks for the advice or comments.
  4. This is Astra,our new Siberian husky puppy,female,9 weeks old,pure breed.Greetings to all from Serbia.
  5. Hey All, I am a new husky mama located in Nashville Tennessee and I am needing some advice from you all that have more experience with caring for your pup. Blaze is currently 4 days old and I will be welcoming him into my home on June 26th. I have a 2 year old daughter, and I wanted her to have a forever fur friend she can grow up with. I am going to consider him my son and her little brother lol. I chose a husky because of their loyalty. I wanted a dog that would be a great companion for me and my daughter. I decided to get a puppy so I can watch him grow up to be the majestic dog I know he will be. Before he arrives, do you have any advice for me? I want to make sure I am aware and prepared of what it takes to be a husky mama. Any advice on what to have before he gets here, crate training, exercising tips ect. Are there any neighbors in Nashville Tennessee that can meet up for play dates. Please feel free to express all of your pros and cons for huskies I am all in and excited to be a part of this forum. I have attached Blaze's first picture since his debut on 05/08/2020. Can't wait to have this little guy in my home.
  6. The day after Christmas we adopted a beautiful 10 month old female Siberian Husky, Mara Jade. We found out soon after we got her however that she could possible pregnant (due to the previous owner breeding her with another husky). Well, in the early AM hours of Presidents Day, she brought eight beautiful pups into the world. Happy Birthdays to... Washington, Lincoln, Jackson, Eisenhower (Ike), and Jefferson (two white and three dark - unsure what coloring they are?) And Madison, Monroe, and Reagan (two white and one dark) Since we have never cared for puppies before, any and all advice is welcome! So far we are through the first few days since birth and all pups are keeping within the same weight gain ranges, even our little runt (Madison). However it has been rather hard to pin down exactly what weight a husky puppy should fit into online (medium or large breed) since my girls are within the top and bottom range of both (new husky owners as of Oct 1st 2019). As well, we have kept the whelping room (my walk-in closet) warm in the 80s, now in the 70s post three days old. So far all pups appear to be moving good, eating well, and crying little. Mama Mara is cleaning them and VERY protective. She will let me move them if they get behind her and distressed while she is trying to feed the bunch, but otherwise won't let anyone reach for or touch a puppy. All whelping box blanket changing and weighing has to be done while she is outside. She let's us pet her whil she is in the box, even showing belly for pets, but not her babies. I take it this is normal? When she we expect her to hopefully calm down and let handling to perform weigh-ins etc? Again, thank you everyone for anything you would like to offer in advice or suggestion. We want to ensure we maintain a healthy Mama and babies.
  7. Can someone tell me what color my 2 and a half week old pup is. I thought he was just black and white but his face is pretty dark and he has some off white. Also his hind legs have some grayish coloring right behind the black. Here’s some pictures.

    My husky pup is 4 months old in a couple days (we guess as she was a rescue and we got her at 5weeks possibly less the vets think). She already weighs 15kg/33lbs she’s not overweight the vets said her body proportions are pretty much perfect, but does this mean she’s going to be a big husky? IMG_0575.MP4
  9. Hello All, I am the co-resident and supervisor of 2 huskies (does anyone ever "own" a husky, really?). I also have a two year old female pit bull/cattle dog mix named Ginger, but since this is a husky forum I won't focus on her. (Needless to say she is a Very Good Girl. Of course, our 2 huskies think that being good is for chumps). Heidi (F, spayed) will be 2 years old in February. She was a rescue from Alabama. My husband and I adopted her this past winter. She is affable and full of joy and mischief. Apparently my husband and I like dog hair and chaos, because about a month ago we came home with Jasper (M, intact--for now), who is 4 months old and just as rascally and adorable as they come. I'm very glad to have found this forum, because I'm looking for advice and experiences from husky owners about a couple of different topics. I'll make posts about those in the appropriate topic area. For now, thank you for having me!
  10. Hey my names devin im new to owning my own husky and have a 9 week old husky with a bit of akita in her. So far she's a great dog listen well takes to training pretty good and even love our one cat. But we are having issues with nipping and peeing every to she goes in to a new room. Tho she is young and just started her training and nothing change over night. Now i have read alot in to training and watched some videos but im always up for hearing from other people. As of now her routine is wake up at 5AM to go pee and for a walk around the block( will be long when she's older), then gets half a cup of dog food 3x a day with treats for training she is let out every 2hrs and anytime she has high energy we play with toys. I look forward from learn and share our experiences with everyone
  11. Hello all! I'm adopting my first husky puppy (she will be 8 weeks) and have a few questions about training! 1) I live in a large family that includes my husband's dad and grandparents, so while my husband and I may not be home during the day, they will be. (I work 7 on/7off so mainly the 7 on part they'll be the biggest help). Would it be better to leave her by herself for awhile during the day or is it ok for her to be able to see them all day? I'm concerned she may became too dependent on us causing problems/separation anxiety leaving her alone for a few hours here and there when she's older. 2) Is it better to move the crate at night time to our bedroom? I don't know if change of space may cause her confusion. I will be the one taking her out at night to use the bathroom. 3) For crate training, should I close the crate door during a few hours of the day or let her roam in an enclosure with the crate available for her to use? I want to be able to crate train her but I want her to be able to roam around and exercise a bit during the day playing with her toys (outside of the time we take to walk her/play with her/etc.) I appreciate all the help and am open to all suggestions and advice!

  15. Hi, I just got a male husky puppy last January 11. The seller said he was born last Nov. 11, 2018 so he was exactly two months old when we got him. His name is Jarvis by the way.. I was just wondering if I was tricked because he looks small for a two-month old husky. The seller said he is a purebreed but some people said he looks small for a two-month old. I don't think he's sick because he eats normally and is very playful. He still eats the same type of food from what the seller has fed him. And are his ears supposed to still be floppy at two months? I would still love him the same though even if he wasn't a purebreed but I just want to know if he really isn't. I don't want to tell people that asks if he's purebreed that he is and then turns out he's not. What do you guys think?(his pictures attached) InShot_20190117_002238535.mp4 V_20190116_133021_EH1.mp4 V_20190116_131052_DOC0.mp4
  16. Soooooooooooooo, my partner and I bought a 1 year old purebred husky this weekend. His previous owner has two kids and can't put in the time for training etc. He is so loving and always wants to be around. You can tell he's so young still. I should add I have three cats. He lived with a cat and he absolutely loves them. I'm just not daring to make them meet yet. He has too much training to do yet. I thought I should add this so you know why he isn't allowed in the entire house. He also has peed on the couch when he escaped his area whilst we were gone. So he hasn't been trained very well. He jumps and bites playfully, all he wants to do is play and hasn't learnt that hands aren't toys. I'm going to start doing crate training so at the very least he's happy to sleep in his crate with us at night so he isn't running around destroying everything and howling for company. I'm going to take him to obedience classes as well asap but for the period that they don't do lessons in December and January, do you have any advice? Dad tried to put in a temp gate for us until we get and actual gate made. But as soon as I block his access of to the rest of the house so he only has outside and his area inside, he's escaping and breaking dad's fence to try and find us because he hates being away from us. PLS HELP IM DYING.
  17. Kota is an (almost) 19 month old husky living in Minnesota. He's pretty lazy because we can't run him as much as we should. For as long as I can remember having him he's always panted a lot. Of course he would when we take him to the park and on walks, but he also does it when he hasn't done any sort of physical activity (like sitting around in the house). For example we could be sitting on the couch together and he would just be slowly panting. It wasn't fast or rough. But for clarification its not CONSTANT but it does happen a lot. For a while I thought it was cute because it seemed relaxing (if that makes sense) but now it sort of worries me. We're just getting into the colder months here so there's even less of a reason why he should be doing it so frequently. Is it the temperature of our house (it's usually around 70° F)? Is it because he pulls too much on walks and hurts himself? Can anyone help? We're still pretty new to being husky owners so anything is appreciated!!
  18. Hi everyone, I just adopted a puppy last week from a cousin who bought her but couldn't take care of here anymore since his mom was recently detected cancer and has no time to take care of the pup. The seller told him she was a purebreed husky, he showed him her parents and siblings and they did look like huskies, but while I was researching about the breed I saw many pictures of husky pups and my little girl doesn´t look like them very much, mostly because she has shorter hair. She is the sweetest pup I've ever seen and I love her regardless if she's mixed or purebreed but out of curiosity I would like to know your opinions. Does she look purebreed or mixed? She's 6 weeks old, her name is Krista and her ears have'nt stood up yet.
  19. So my husband came home the other night with a puppy. He told me it was a husky and we’ve been falling in love with it, and now I’m wondering if it truly is a husky. He seems to small for an 8 week old husky. I have been looking at other photos of husky puppies and I grew up with a husky as a kid, even my husband had one when he was single. So I think he just fell in love with it and bought it without really thinking lol. Anyways, we are going to keep it either way I’m just curious what it might be. I think he is a pomsky personally. We have been planning on buying a husky puppy for awhile. We already chose a breeder that somebody recommended us, but we have this little guy now. So any help would be great from you guys!m
  20. Hey there! I'm interested in adopting a Siberian Husky puppy, and since I've never owned one before, I was hoping to get some advice when it comes to breeders. I have been searching for quite a while to find the perfect puppy, and I thought that I had, but later I was idly searching for husky pictures and came across a forum on this website, in which another user had in a similar situation to mine requested advice and discovered that his dream puppy may actually be riddled with health issues, and with your guys' help he decided on a much safer puppy. I'm hoping to have the same wonderful advice, so here he is! The breeder is Breeders name removed, and from what I could tell, they seemed very legitimate, with AKC certified parents and Champion Bloodlines, and the puppies looked healthy to me, but again, I am new to the world of huskies and am likely overlooking obvious health issues. I attached first the 3 photos of the puppy, an 8 week old male, and following those are the photos of Jax, the father, and Kita, the mother. Following those are the health guarantees they offer. I called them as well, and they seem genuinely interested in finding safe and suitable homes for their huskies, and were happy to help me. What do you guys think-is he a safe bet? Are there any questions I could ask the breeder to clarify anything in regards to his health? Thanks in advance!!
  21. Hello there everybody, my name is Josh and my better halfs’ name is Colette. Our little Lana turns 15 weeks today, hard to believe how much she’s grown since coming into our lives at 7 weeks old! We’re first time Husky parents and I came across one of your forums searching for some puppy info. Happy to be here and be in touch with some good Husky people 🐕🤗
  22. Hi! This is my first time raising a husky from puppy to adult. I’ve had many many husky dogs 7+ months but my little Kai is only 4 months old. When Kai and I were out training some lady said hello and greeted Kai. She then asked why he had “duck feet”. I was confused and when we got home I looked and thought “man! He does kind of have duck feet??” So I’d just like to ask, does his legs look normal? Are they pointed out unnaturally? Should I be worried? How can I fix this? Will they stay like this? I’ve attached a few pictures from a few days, to see his legs better. 95CA5B9C-A60C-4D6E-B4DF-CB40D4A1D0EC.mp4
  23. My puppy is 6.5 weeks old but only one ear has stood up. I understand this is young, but almost all of her brothers and sisters ears are already erect. Do you guys think the right will stand up like the left?
  24. I adopted a Pure Bread Siberian Husky female puppy. (Miley). She was about 2 months old when i adopted her and now she is almost 1. I am a college student so i'm busy often with school and work, etc. but i for the most part do most of what i need to do from my apartment because when Miley is put into her cage she disturbs my other two roommates. She was never really bad at first when put in her cage, she would howl really loud for a couple minutes then she would stop. About a month ago she started going through heat and every since about a week into heat when put into her cage she howls uncontrollably for hours without stopping. I have finals coming up so i need to be in the library at night but i literally feel chained to my apartment all day every because of the way she recently started acting. I originally didn't want to get her fixed because me and my family wanted to breed her, which is why she isn't currently fixed. But now that i'm in college, the behavior is hard to deal with when i have small errands to run but i literally can't leave. I have heard stories about people getting their dogs fixed and them being an entirely new dog after, behavior wise. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Have any recommendations?
  25. Hi! My partner and have debated at length for the last year and a half about getting either a husky or a husky collie mix. We currently own 4 cats and 4 guinea pigs. We live on 6 acres of land (which we can use for doggo) that are horse exercise paddocks along with a back garden of about 700m2. My in Laws own and live on the land in a bungalow next door with a Wheaton and a Miniature Schnauzer, both love other dogs. I run fitness boot camps in the garden and visit clients in a gym for a maximum of 1-2 hours per day, but my partner in normally home when I’m rarely not! We’ve done a TONNE of research, although I know that we will never be 100% prepared. I grew up crate/agility/obedient training dogs and have no problem being an alpha, stern with positive reinforcement and providing 2+ hours of exercise. We want a husky because of the work; we understand the reward! We’re prepared to be in snowstorm when the coat sheds and have already looked in to the money for stupid amounts of toys, raw vs non raw food etc... the elephant in the room is our pets. Ultimately I don’t care how much I want a husky if I think my cats will get killed it’s game over. We have a “cat wall” which would be great for them to climb up and hide in hidey holes and on ledges. We’re talking about putting a cat flap on the lounge door and keeping it as a no husky zone. I understand that no matter how much I trust my dog after a decade we can never leave them unattended together. My question is, I’ve heard horror stories and successes. Even with all my plans, daily classes, training, exercise, toys, crates, cat escape routes and hyper vigilance.. am I living in crazy town thinking this is possible? Thanks in advance (sorry about the length of the post!!) Maddie
