    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 can see why you are so nervous about it now. Meaning no disrespect, but it's a shame she would do that

    Sarcasm isn't called for, really.. It all depends on her personality, too, to my Mom. Sure, she's a pup.. she loves everything now. But dogs change. I just asked a simple question as to whether you think Molly is crossed with Husky. No need to get sarcastic about it....

    I know. My Dad reassured me we won't get rid of her or send her back to the pound.. so I'm hoping for the best.

    Well I certainly hope all works out and she will be able to stay. She truly is adorable and I bet will grow into quite a little beauty .

    She looks like a full BC to me. She's got the BC ears

    I'm not getting involved in any arguements or anything, but i don't think Vela was being sarcastic. I think she was just a little confused as to why your mother would want rid of the dog if she was crossbred. All i'm saying is it didn't appear sarcastic to me, but maybe it did to you, and i know how people take things differently.

    I'm surprised how many of you think she's purebred!!

    I thought almost all of you would think she looked Husky!.. I guess I've been looking at too many black and white Husky pictures today. lol

    that first photo you posted is a rescue dog, correct? so that dogs breed mix is probably a guess someone made up because thats what they *think* the dog is mixed with.

    what does it matter if she is part husky? what does your mom have against huskys?
