I agree, it looks like husky puppy.
Just a note there is no such thing as a toy husky.

Thank you for the reply.

I didn't think there was. I can't handle a big husky. I was hoping they stayed that small.

Thanks again

Any dog with a double coat...be ready for little hairs everywhere lol yes it's super gross but what's probably more gross is that you get used to it haha I have a Shiba Inu and man...I can tell you there are hairs everywhere. Sometimes I'll be eating something and I'll notice a little white hair in my bowl. I just pick the hair out and keep eating haha (I know I know..it's gross...but after almost 13 years it just becomes a normal part of my life lol)

Some 'breeders' (and I use that term very loosely) have developed a new breed of dog called Miniature Husky by supposedly breeding purebred siberian huskys together and selecting for small size. I would steer clear of these. Parents are chosen because they are the smallest with little consideration given to health and temperament. Also siberian huskies of normal size can be challenging pets due to their exercise needs, independant nature, prey drive, escape artist tendencies, etc. Smaller ones have these same challenges.

There is also the Alaskan Klee Kai which is often referred to as a 'miniature husky' except this is a breed created from more pet type dog breeds and selectively bred to have the same coat and features as a siberian husky. They tend to make much better pets for the average dog owner because of the constituent breeds.

There are now 3 sizes of Klee Kai

That's not gross it's the same with kids and the stuff they do. You get used to it and just keep going. LOL

Thank you for the information. That first one in the picture looks great. I will have to look into them.
