My husky is 9 years old and she weighs about 60 -64 lbs. now they say that a female should weigh 50 lbs. but I'm not convinced of that, Shadow has always weighed between 60 and 65lbs. no matter how much I walk her and I only feed her twice a day a low fat food, she doesn't loose weight, she has big feet and is a large husky. At 6 months your dog isn't full grown, I'm sure he will have a growth spurt, an adult weight for a male is 55lbs. but I wouldn't worry too much if he were a little over or a little under, I've seen some pretty skinny huskies.blue dog

huh. Summer just got spayed in February right before she turned 6 months. She weighed 30 pounds -- I thought she was too skinny. After a week of having to rest, she gained 5 pounds and is at 35 pounds and looks good for her size. The vet didn't say anything to me about Summer being underweight, even though I mentioned it.

Cooper will be a year old on Thursday. He's at 55+ pounds.

Niki is 5 months old and about 30-35 pounds.

Siberian husky standard is 35-50 pounds full grown for females, but I know a lot of them are being bred bigger than the standard.

I also think they do not put on weight like a lab or other breed might because they were bred to be lightweight runners so I would not worry about her being too skinny or underweight as long as she seems healthy otherwise.

Siberian breed standards calls for females to be 35-50 pounds & 20-22" at the withers, and males 45-60 pounds, 21 to 23½ inches at the withers. There is NOT a trend to breed bigger- no way. Reputable breeders do not breed their dogs bigger than the standard.

The people breeding huge, out of standard Siberian huskies are BYBs or puppymill types who probably could not pick out a well bred Siberian if their lives depended on it and most likely have no idea there is such a thing as a standard.

Tormé is roughly 3 - 4 years (rescued from a kill shelter, I'm judging by teeth wear) and 48 - 49 lbs.

When I meet people and they think he's small I politely inform them Sibes are known for not being big in weight but in strength.

Yea I was pretty shocked when a vet made that comment. I know what the average size should be. She is pure breed and her family are show dogs. So I dont know why he would have made this comment especially at 6 months. shrug i think she is average and healthy and that is all that matters to mecheerapplause

Vance is 7 years, between 46 and 52 lbs, depending on how well he's been eating. He is also over two inches over standard height, which makes his frame pretty disproportionate in terms of the standard. I swear there's something else in there, but no one else buys it. Yet if I put him in a room with a proper Sibe, people will recognize the proper Sibe's breed and then ask what Vance is.
