It might just be her build that make her weight look odd. Maybe just carrying it weird. Zane has that issue with his deep, wide chest too. He carries a lot of weight over his ribs, but not his topline. It's hard to get him to carry it right, unless he's full conditioned and muscled. And that's not necessarily always easy to keep up with!

She's beautiful though, and it's awesome to see her in good weight! I look forward to more pictures!
Her build is very weird indeed, and her hips are bad. Not terribad, but I can see a hint of what will likely develop into dysplasia. I have her on GlucosaPet while she lives here, I think it's especially important with the extra running she's suddenly doing.

Pretty sure she's purebred husky, but she's from a bad BYB, I know that, so her odd structure can very well be attributed to that.

She's got a waist already! Good job, Allie!

Stupid is the most notoriously incurable and contagious disease known to mankind. If you find yourself in close proximity to someone infected with stupid, walk away as soon as said infection is noted.
