I think he is a tamaskan, but I can't be sure since I got him from a shelter without any papers.. :/

He is definitely not a Tamaskan. Not only will you not find one in a shelter (but you can find look alikes) because breeders do their best to screen adopters, but your boy does not even look anything like a Tamaskan. They do not have bi-coloured eyes (one brown, one blue), they don't even have blue eyes, no liver noses, the face all almost being white is a husky trait.

I'm inclined to think he's mostly a very handsome Husky in his own right, and that's something wonderful, and it's just as wonderful you had the heart and the courage to adopt.

Alas, there are a number of "breeders" peddling dogs as Tamaskans that aren't part of the (now recognized) breed. Heterochromia (different color eyes) may occur, but it is considered a fault and that Tamaskan would not be bred, according to the rules of the Register. We have enough problems avoiding inbreeding that finding suitable pairs conforming to our breed standards is tough enough.

Having said that, I congratulate you on a wonderful adoption, and wish you the best. May Scout bring you the joy and miracles my Kona has brought to my life.

And also know that many of us here, while we focus on Tamaskans, are lovers of all dogs, and arctic breeds no matter what their parentage.

Lovely husky! One of Jasper's best friends when he was a pup was a gorgeous male red husky named Marley, who looked quite similar to Scout. :)
