The requirement to buy a puppy from us is having knowledge about the breed, filled out the questionnaire, and also read the pages under the Resources tab of “Before Buying a Puppy from Us”.
Q: Do you sell Mini Siberian Huskies or Merle Siberian Huskies?
A: There is no such thing as a miniature Siberian Huskies or Merle Siberian Huskies. Thus we do not breed them. If a “breeder” is stating they are selling you a miniature Siberian husky than they are selling you a mix breed or an unhealthy pup or selling you a pup around 4 to 5 weeks old. If a “breeder” is trying to sell “Merle Siberian Huskies” then they are selling a mix Siberian Husky.
The following is what the Siberian Husky Club of America states about Merle Siberian Huskies:
The SHCA strongly believes that merle patterning is NOT genetically possible in a purebred Siberian Husky, and is only possible due to impure breeding. As such, the Siberian Husky Club of America, Inc. strongly discourages anyone from purchasing a merle Siberian Husky.
The following is what the Siberian Husky Club of America states about Miniature Siberian Huskies:
Miniature Siberian Huskies are not a breed or variety of Siberian Huskies and as such are not recognized by the SHCA or the AKC. The SHCA and its members strive to protect and promote the working abilities of the breed as described in the official AKC breed standard which states: “Height: Dogs, 21 to 23 1/2 inches at the withers, Bitches: 20 to 22 inches at the withers”. The SHCA and AKC recognize that this height requirement depicts a functional working sled dog which can still perform its original purpose for which the breed was developed. Any significant deviation from these height requirements cannot function as a proper working sled dog and thus cannot be deemed a correct Siberian Husky.
For those who prefer a small breed dog, please consider one of the smaller AKC recognized breeds.
