Here's my boy Colt. This is the first good picture I have, but I'll be sure to add more to this thread as he comes along. (I also added this to my introduction thread.) He's a good lookin' boy. I'm thinkin that as he ages his ears will stand erect and really give him the husky look. I do love his eyes though. They are an awesome color and really unique. Anyway, here we go.

Beautiful puppy! He's definitely cute. I always wanted to venture into the crossbreed group someday and get some unique looking puppy. But alas, my lifestyle demands a specific type of temperment and exercise needs etc etc. So i'm a Sheltie guy for now haha. Too afraid of getting a mix i'm not prepared to take care of, and have to deal with neglecting some of it's needs. Awesome dog, have fun training him!

Thanks ya'll. So far he has been great. He's younger than most, the people I got him from weren't aware of the accepted 8 weeks, nor was I. I know he's not at that "bad" age yet (he's 6 weeks) but as of now he has been doing very well with house training, even after only 3 days. He's half husky half lab, the litter was a mistake. (Their husky got out and with their neighbor's lab, I think a "miniature" lab.) Anyways. They had five males, 2 husky lookin guys like mine, 2 yellow lab lookin ones, and one that looked like a black lab. They were giving all five away, but were very caring and wanted to make sure that they went to good homes. I was glad to see such involved owners. Their husky was beautiful.

I think my guy, Colt, will be around 50 pounds but I'm not sure. The mother was around 40 pounds and they said the lab was a little bigger than that.

I'll be sure to post some more pictures ASAP.

Is there any way to get him more time with his brothers/sisters? The next two weeks with them would be a huge benefit.

Unfortunately, I really can't. Drove a good ways to get him. But thinkin about it, he may have been seven weeks when I picked him up, which is better but not good.

My sister has a younger dog, I think 9 months or so, that he will be hanging with this weekend. (I'm a student at UGA and 4.5 hours from home, so I don't make it home much.) But she's coming up to see me and bringing her dog so that will be good.

Here's a couple more:

Huskies ears stand up pretty much from birth. However I was looking at lab/husky mix photos as pups and then as adults and a good bit of them had ears just like his that end up standing up. I can't wait to see pictures of yours as well!

Thanks for all the compliments!

I'm sure there will be a ton of pictures. He's sliding around the house on a frisbee right now. He makes it pretty dang hard to study, but its worth it.
