I'm not a fan of any dog having blue eyes, I like the brown eyes thank you very much. They just look spooky in my opinion....anyway.....I was at the vet today to pick up more medicine for Luke because he's been scratching constantly. While there I met this beautiful black/white, blue eyed Husky named Havoc.

He was gorgeous! He gave me kisses (which I knew my dog would be saying "Traitor!" to me, haha) and jumped on me a couple of times, which I don't mind. But he had blue eyes and he didn't look spooky at all; in fact Havoc was down right beautiful with them!

So my view has changed. I now think Huskies with blue eyes are very pretty, so thank you Havoc! It's funny how one dog can change an opinion. :)

I actually wish weimaraners would keep their blue eyes, they are so pretty as pups. But I also love their amber eyes, so it's not a big disappointment when the blue fades.

I have 2 blue eyed dogs, but they have really weird eyes. they are blue due to the merle, and on top of that they have dropped, starburst and other malformations, due to being double dapples (merles)

Every picture I have of Boo (when he's awake), he looks absolutely strange, his eyes wide open and HUGE LOL

Yay for switching! :p! The only eyes that really freak me out are some bi-eyes dogs. My friend has two bi-eyed puppies right now (brown and blue) and they are the most terrifying thing to me. When they get older they won't be so bad.

I like some lighter eyes. I think yellow/amber eyes are stunning. Both my dogs have really dark eyes and although I love them they're so dark you never get to see much detail in pictures.

Remmy, being merle, has the blue eyes. Sometimes when you take pictures of him with the flash, you get what looks like "red eye" but you can't get rid of it from the picture like you can with normal red eye.

My husband's college roommate had a husky. He was great dog, but an amazing escape artist. They were always find him in pastures terrorizing the local cows. I'm glad to learn I'm not the only one freaked out by blue and bi-eyed dogs :)

Faolan has bi-eyes. Some dogs with blue eyes do look a bit scary. There is a dog that comes in for baths a lot at work that is a mutt but looks like a solid brown ACD. Both of his eyes are blue and for the first few months everyone was scared of him. After meeting that dog, I can see why it's beneficial to have a blue eyed herding dog. Those eyes can really freak you out! Hahah. I think since Faolan is all white his eyes don't look creepy at all.

When he was little, the non-blue eye looked almost green and his blue eye was quite bright.



But now, with his white fur, I think his blue eye loses a lot of the brightness that would come from contrasting with a black facial mask. I think it has also faded a little to a more pale blue than a cornflower blue. His once green-ish eye has now turned a nice golden brown, too.

I'm often not a fan of the blue either, it can look downright creepy! They aren't always spooky, it depends on the shade of blue and the rest of the color on the dog's head.

This is Kaytu close up, one is blue and other is hazel with blue at the bottom.


This is Denali's sire, he is a GORGEOUS dog but to me those eyes border on creepy because they are so intense.

Casper had one very blue eye when I got him, and one brown.



As he aged, more and more of his blue eye turned dark brown. Now that he's two and a half, it's mostly brown, although still has some noticeable blue. The other eye is kind of a light brownish/olive color with some dark brown in it.

I used to absolutely adore blue eyed Sibes as a kid... now I agree that some look a bit eerie, though I wouldn't say I'd be afraid of them because of it. It just lacks the gentleness that really dark eyes are given to. I find yellow eyes able to look just as creepy. But again--it can also look stunning, depending on the dog. I wouldn't choose or not choose a dog based on eye color, though (well, unless I was looking for a show dog in a breed with eye color restrictions, haha).

I love blue eyes! My mom had a Shar-pei mix who had several litters and one of those was with a husky. One of the new owners returned their pup as a fully grown dog and pregnant with a Lab, and the pup we kept from that litter for a while was solid black with bright blue eyes. She was beautiful :) We also had a border collie/husky mix litter and all those had blue eyes. We kept one with wolf grizzle markings and later sold him. (I really miss all these dogs!)

I agree, and I own a blue eyed dog. I love Bello's eyes, they make him appear more human to me. And then some blue-eyed dogs I'm around they make them very creepy looking. I have no idea how I decide which ones are creepy. For me typically the dogs that have blue eyes due to being merle freak me out, but then again not always, and then there are huskies which freak me out as well.

I love blue-eyed huskies, bi eyed! They are too cute! Though malamutes have brown eyes so haha that can't happen. If I was to get a sibe it would be bi-eyed or blue eyed!

I love huskies (obviously). My cousin's dog was a really lovely husky with blue eyes that was always super playful so I tend to associate the blue eyed huskies with that. I can see the eyes being a little creepy, though, specially when they are really light! I think it really depends on the dog though.

I could get lost in a blue-eyed dogs' eyes--I think they're gorgeous! I only have one dog with completely blue eyes, an Alaskan Husky, and one with parti eyes, an Aussie mix. People always ask me if my dog with the parti eyes is blind.

Below is Sydney, my Alaskan. :)
