|Photos would help, as well as back story. Where did he come from?
It's possible to get a very good guess based on the above, but there is no way to be 100% certain unless you have the dog's linage. And even that can be questionable. For instance, my old roommate has a 15 pound sable "Chihuahua" with AKC papers. He is almost certainly a Chi/Pug cross.
On the other hand, I don't have Fox's papers, but she very much fits the Sibe standard so I feel safe in assuming she is purebred. Similar with Ember - I do have AKC papers on her, but she came from an Amish puppy mill where no one really pays that much attention to breeding. However, she is close to standard. Vance, on the other hand, is way taller, narrower across the ribs and just generally not really proportioned like a Husky. I've always felt there may be something else in there.
There are some common mixes. It's common for certain breeders to cross Malamute into their lines to get bigger or calmer dogs. I've also seen a lot of breeders who go for pure white Sibes that have very German Shepherd-looking (and acting) dogs... Quite likely they are crossing white Sibes with white GSDs to cement the all white genes and keep the wolf-ish look.
