Breed Guess - What is Rocket?!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
He looks like a Husky, yet he's 30 lbs! 40 lbs. tops, if he's even that much!

He's super skinny...and he's gained weight since coming in, too.

He's vocal like a lot of Huskies, in the "husky voice", too.











And a few (very poor) pics of him running the yard....





What on earth would give him the small size?! He is around 3 years old, full grown.

He looks like there may be some husky in him.. but I'm not really sure what else at the moment.

We have a husky, and the first thing I noticed in the pictures is how alike the tails are. It's almost like I could guess what else might be mixed in, but it seems to have slipped my mind..

I'm looking at those little pencil legs and trying to think of the breed with very thin legs. Hmmm......

I his chicken legs. Only breed I could come up with that has such dainty legs was an Italian Greyhound.

He is, however, a most excellent dance partner. Very light on his feet, quick too.

Definitely appears to be a Husky mix, and maybe some sort of terrier. I've seen Husky-Terrier X before and some of the litter just looked like your dog (except these were mostly red and white). Male Huskies can be as little as about 45lbs too, so his small size isn't that surprising for a Husky mix.

he does have husky in him but he may also have some lab or some other breed in him that tend to have that skinner look

You know, I highly doubt it, but he's identical to a husky/coyote hybrid I had many years ago.

Man, I wish I had pics of her.

I think a Spitz/Herding dog mix. It's hard to say really, as he's probably a mutt of a mutt of a mutt, but he has the spitz characteristics. What's his personality like?

He hates me. Will randomly snap at me, very growly. My hair scares him.

So, personality, can't tell you a thing.

That's what I thought. I had a Malamute/BC who looked quite similar, but he was huge over 100lbs.

Those legs look like my sister BC, we call them spindly

If he was just Husky/BC I think he'd probably be slightly larger. A male Husky typically weighs 45-60lbs, and a male BC 40-50. She said he's only about 30lbs.

Ah, good point. My BC cross is pretty small, so I keep thinking they are smaller dogs!
