A new rule has been established after the admins have been discussing the issue of people refusing to answer our inquiries towards their membership or breeding practices.

You must answer any and all questions that are asked during the submission/membership process. We thoroughly screen all members to make sure that our group is only supporting the highest quality bred pups, and that all dogs come from responsible breeders, or have been raised by responsible owners. If you do not answer our questions, you will either be kicked out for ignorance, your images declined, or reported if the issue is severe enough. We will give you a maximum of two days to respond. It is not our problem if you aren't online all the time. We expect people to respond quickly, and take inactivity as rude or evasive behavior, and on those grounds, we will take action in the way we see fit.
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

We tend to get a lot of photos taken by people who have bred their dogs and aren't professional breeders, what we call backyard or hobby breeders, and there is some confusion for people when we decline their photos, so this entry is to clear up all issues regarding the subject.

- We will not accept a photo of an intact male or female Sibe without a written description of why your animal is unaltered, the reasons may be along the line of it is a showing/working dog that has to remain intact, but has not been bred, or if it has been bred, it had been under the hands of professional and registered breeders. If you do not own a kennel or breeding license, we will not accept your photography of any unaltered male or female or any puppies that you have bred.

- If any image or description idolizes or promotes unhealthy breeding practices or carelessness when it comes to handling pregnancy or insemination, it will be rejected immediately and will not be open to a debate as to whether or not we will accept it. But if you write in the description of your deviation the reasons you have chosen to leave your animal unaltered, it will be open for debate, but the decision is ultimately ours. We strive to keep this group a place for healthy animals with good owners and a place for those people to show their animals to the people in the world who love the breed in a responsible way, and we reserve the right to decline any image that we find irresponsible or unprofessional, and if you don't like that, then you have the right to take your images elsewhere.

If you have any questions regarding this, feel free to contact any one of our admins.

Group Info

This group is designed to not only display artwork and photography of this beautiful breed, but to raise awareness and educate about the breed as well.

We will be screening possible members to make sure all images in your gallery comply with these rules. We will not accept members if:

~you are a breeder who does not practice the most ethical and reputable methods with your dogs and litters.
~you have images in your gallery that are not your own and you do not have permission to use them there or are stolen.
~you have images depicting inappropriate concepts/elements pertaining to animals (ie, murder, sex, mistreatment, cruelty), unless it is to raise awareness.
~you have unaltered animals that are not properly maintained so as to prevent possible, unwanted pregnancies.

If you are denied as a member, you can still feel free to add our group to your DeviantWatch. However, we are a group promoting the welfare of all animals, especially Siberian Huskies who are subject to a number of Breed Specific laws and regulations. Therefore, we wish to spread knowledge and information to help the world understand this greatly misunderstood and wonderful breed.

All submissions to 'Photography/Art' folders will be accepted, unless:

~it presents horrific details.
~it contains inappropriate concepts/elements (ie murder, sex, mistreatment, cruelty).
~it does not pertain to huskies.
~it is of such poor quality, that the image cannot be seen properly (ie, entire motion blurs, image of the ground - even if a husky body part can be slightly seen).
~it has an unaltered (or a dog that is not spayed or neutered) male or female without a written description as to why the dog remains intact. If there is no description, we will ask for a reason to make sure you are taking the necessary precautions to prevent unwanted litters.
~it is a puppy you have bred yourself but have not taken the steps to do so reputably. For more information on this, please research reputable breeders.
~it is an advertisement for contests or any other form of literature that is a form of advertisement. This includes advertisements for litters of pixel puppies.
~absolutely NO wolves or wild canines!

In addition, please submit to the correct folders:

~only purebred Siberian Huskies will be admitted to the Photography Adults/Puppies and Art folders.
~when we say purebred, we are referring to non-mixed dogs that are within the set standards or close. All images (in reference to digital paintings) depicting dogs with unique markings that do not fit these standards will be denied.
~please submit all other Spitz breeds to the Malamutes and Other Spitz Breeds folder.
~if you are fostering a husky that is currently up for adoption, or have taken pictures of one from your local shelter or rescue, please feel free to submit it to the For Adoption or Adopted folder.

Submissions to the 'Featured' folder is by discretion of the Admin staff. We will select those images that we consider to be unique and/or of better quality from a variety of artists.

You are allowed a total of five (5) submissions per day.

As always, any questions? Feel free to contact us!

Due to breaking your rules regarding Licensed/Registered breeders and because I am as you say a Backyard/hobbyist breeder I will not post any further art that will breach your rules however this one should be ok. Would you agree ?

I'm curious about what it is that you do with your breeding stock to ensure that their puppies do not end up with the same genetic disorder as that dog?

Please understand that we do not believe all licensed/registered breeders to be reputable breeders. I've known some myself that I've despised with a passion because, though they might comply to the standards of the breed, do health testing, and work to find decent furparents for their puppies, they breed back to back to back, start too young, etc.

I would like you to point out where it says we regard only licensed/registered breeders to be reputable breeders.

Please do not twist our words to your benefit and then post defamatory remarks on your images because they were removed since you did not answer our questions. That comment about leading us to believe you are a backyard breeder was because it appeared that you were not responding to our questioning, and the fact that you have posted that on this image in the manner you have gives people the wrong impression of us. In America, things like that are illegal if you do something like that to a business making money off of their efforts.

And, contrary to popular believe, if you work with us, then your privileges to submit images to our gallery will be restored. Doing things like this, however, is only going to make us angry and more likely to remove you instead.

I have not twisted your words, I have not committed any illegal acts. Are you accusing me of of breach of copyright or plagiarism?

I have not posted defamatory remarks on my images.[link]

Your rules/rule changes regarding licenced/registered and now professional breeders speak for themselves, as do your new rules that state questions MUST be answered.

Thank you for the offer to have my images restored if I work with you, but I must graciously decline. I will be posting images of Siberian Huskys elsewhere.

Good luck with those rules, I think you may need to think them through a bit.

You have twisted my words, as you've referred to that statement in your post, as is, not in the context of which is actually was in, which was because you hadn't responded to our posts before. We never said that in response to your image or what you had written on your image, which is the context you are leading people to believe it was said. It is misleading. Also, please remember to actually read what I write, because I never said that you did something illegal. I said that in America, saying something like that about a place of business in those contexts is illegal.

Our rules never said anything about licensed/registered breeders. Our rules never specified anything like that, but referred to the responsible vs. irresponsible breeding of animals. So our rule/rule changes never regarded licensed/registered breeders or professional breeders, and our new rule changes are because apparently people are just too thick to be able to understand them, because they read "responsible breeder" and immediately jump to licensed and registered breeders ONLY. I'm sorry, but licensed and registered means NOTHING. There are plenty of licensed and registered breeders who are still backyard breeders. And there are some unlicensed and unregistered breeders who are reputable breeders. Licensing and registering animals doesn't do anything for their health or wellbeing. It's just paperwork. Why, if we are advocating for RESPONSIBLE breeding, would we care about paperwork over health tests and assuring that puppies are placed in good, deserving homes? Did we even ask you if your dogs were papered?!

And I wouldn't call this graciously declining. *cough* You've been more than your fair share of rude and condescending, so honestly, I'm happy that you're gone. We do not support backyard breeders, whether they're licensed and registered or not. And if you did therapy on a dog with severe hip and elbow dysplasia, I'm surprised that you didn't even bother to test your own dogs for the genetic defect before breeding them! What if one of YOUR puppies ends up with the disorder? I certainly hope someone sues you for misleading them to believe that you gave them a healthy and happy puppy! -.-

Oh and another question. If you submit a picture from your gallery to one of your groups and it says awaiting approval. What does it mean?
