Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


I got my dog from the pound and they said she was a husky mix like a husky belgian malinois is that

    i see husky but the ears don't look like a husky or a malinois. both have prick ears (they stand straight up) so it may have something else. its hard to say without a whole body shot.

    There is no way to tell for certain (even DNA tests are not 100% accurate), but their shelter's guess on her breeds seems very accurate. I see Husky, and I definitely see Mali. However, I'd have to see a few more pictures to be more help, as both pictures on her page are basically the same.

    The two photos on your page are really not good photos to judge her breed by - a good photo would be one showing her "stacked", like this - That allows us to evaluate her build, which gives lots of clues to her breed. I can see why the shelter thinks she may be part Malinois, as she has a very Malinois-looking face in the photo on your page. But please post better pictures and then ask again, so we can better evaluate her.

    She looks very husky-mali in her last picture, but do you shave her? Both of those dogs have a lot of hair!! She might have some whipit or greyhound in her. I really hope this helps!
