    I'm not sure. She's cute though. I have 2 bc-husky crosses...For comparison, here's Pingo


    She's my main lead dog. Goofy little mutt. Cracks me up when her herding instinct kicks in. Fortunately that doesn't happen when she's pulling. The husky takes over then,


    And Pingo's son, Sundin. He nips like a herding dog, but he prefers to go for your butt!

    No, I think she's a purebred.

    If you don't mind me asking (and I am certainly not trying to be rude here), but you always seem so dismayed at the suggestion that she MIGHT have husky in her or may not be full BC. Why does it matter so much? She sure is a doll. I tend to think she's full BC but you really won't be able to tell for sure till she's an adult I would think

    It matters because my mother will not keep her if she is crossed with Husky.

    I agree, it's hard to tell until they are full grown.

    I'm certainly no expert but in my humble opinion, she looks 100% BC to me

    Hehe, alrighty.. Thanks guys!!

    The trial ends on Wednesday, and that would be the day we officially adopt her.. I'll let you all know what happens.

    (Even though I know we'll be keeping her.. my Dad LOVES her )

    She looks like a purebred BC bundle of cuteness to me!!! I sure hope you get to keep her, she's so beautiful, purebred or not!


    Thanks Kay!!

    I really believed Gonzo had some husky way back somewhere in his lines for a long time too... his tail is very "gay", and he has Husky expressions all the time and a really wierd coat.

    I think what you should look at MOST is tail carriage, coat type and expression. Gonzo definitely sheds like a Husky, for sure!!! BC's have silkier coats, while Huskies have much coarser stock coats. The 1 blue eye could definitely say Husky, but I've seen black/white BC's with one or two blue eyes occasionally. ^_^ she is CUUTE either way!!
