other than DNA analysis of multiple generations...no without papers there is no way.
I was afraid you would say that lol Is there anyway to post a pic on this forum?
go to photobucket or tinypic or a site like that, upload the image and the site will give you a code for forums..copy the code and then paste it into your post.


when you post, scroll down to where it says "manage attachments" on the new reply page and click that button. it will let you upload up to four pics per post.

Thanks for all of the replies. Thats all good to know. I am glad that he is a husky too. He is the most amazing dog. He was left in a cage for a couple of days and We saved him, He is so smart and his very loyal already we have only had him for since i first posted. He just loves my youngest son. When he went to school this morning the dog just sat by the door and winned and howled lol. He must not have been given much attention. He gets plenty here I have three young boys who love on him all the time lol. He goes around to each of us to get attention. He wont eat though that has me worried. I hope he comes around he could use a few pounds. I have tried canned food, wont eat that, a good brand of dry food, wont eat that either. He did grap a loaf of bread off the counter and ate a couple of pieces of that lol (my fault). I hope its just he has to get used to things. He seems healthy has had his shots. Thanks again everyone for responding. Also he is house broken and he will let us know when he needs to take a walk. Anothe plus he is very gentle. When you get the leash he will sit and let you put it on him. I tried beef treats he just turns his nose up to them lol. He will eat the chicken jerky but wont eat canned food. Afraid to give him people food. ????

i agree with the above statements, that is no mal head set/shape. and i do believe that blue eyes are not a trait of mals.
he has the head of my red husky koozie

Yep he does resemble that pic a lot, thats a pretty dog too.

He is beautiful!....

I would say definitely 100% Siberian Husky....not Alaskan Malamute.

Some things I've learned from owning a Husky ---

They are GREAT dogs.....they are stubborn dogs.....they love to play....AND THE MOST IMPORTANT....don't ever leave them off the leash outside or leave a door or gate open --- once they start running - they have a mind of their own!:)

My guy is a picky eater too --- I've finally got it down though -- He is 1 1/2 years old and weighs 53 lbs ---

I give him 1/2 Cup of Dry Dog Food & a tablespoon of either Ricotta Cheese or Cottage Cheese in the morning.

At night he gets 1 Cup of Dry Dog Food and 1 Cup of either Chicken or Beef (baked/grilled/or boiled) some veggies (carrots/peas/green beans/sweet potatoes)

....and don't worry if he skips a meal now and then --- Huskies only eat when their hungry --- there known for not eating alot:)

I give him Blue Buffalo Dry Dog Food - the ingredients are awesome - check it out -- www.bluebuff.com
Thanks for the link i will check it out. Your right he doenst seem to be very hungry. You would think because of his size he would eat a lot. I just get worried that he wont gain weight. He is adjusting well now. The other day he went over to my wife and he would not let me get to close to her lol. He started howling and kept getting in between us lmao. Its the same with the children. lol. I am so glad to have saved this dog, he is a keeper thats for sure. I cant wait until we can take him camping.
