Also, some insurance companies won't insure you if you have any part wolf. I know State Farm for one.

He looks harmless though. Probably really protective of you and your sister I bet.

My friend from alberta rased sled dogs and they tied the bitch to a tree in the north and left her a while . She was in pretty bad shape but preggo!! . he raised the pups and they were the most loyal and fearsome dogs i have ever seen. every dog that happened to raise a hair backed down. I have know way of knowing the % but they looked wolf just like yours.Beautiful!.
I loved the dogs though and really would recommend them. With donnys he had to assert him self as alfa all the time as the feamale would try to take over and be boss.

I just read a story about these a week ago.

They say there is a strong tendency for them to revert back to their wild state.

Gorgeous dog, I would love to have one of those.

In regard to your story Havoc, sometimes people are their own worst enemy.
She fed the animals road kill that sometimes caused the nearby neighborhood to smell. She'd recently asked Mr. Gieselman to help retrieve a deer carcass from Route 22, running parallel to Croft Road, where she lived. Together, they loaded the deer into Ms. Piovesan's truck and hauled it to her yard

True but I don't think feeding them road kill caused her death. I think she just didn't have the right kind of respect for what she was dealing with. They were in a pack and considered her a member of the pack when one finally challenged her for dominance. She didn't realize any of that until too late.

You are right Havoc, that was the point I was trying to make. She obviously didnt understand what she was doing. When raising any animal, especially one that is a domestocated wild animal, feeding them raw meat often pushes them back to a more survival state of mind. The meat didnt directly, but it was a contributing in a long line of factors. Hence, in a way she was responsible for her own death.


And you are welcome Tommy.

""They say there is a strong tendency for them to revert back to their wild state""

I know of 3 people that had their's revert back, including my brother's dog and then years later my niece's dog,, both my brother's and my niece's dog were about 2 years old, see~ a puppy becomes a dog at about 24 months,,,

my brothers dog would run off for 2, 3 days then come back, then 3 or 4 days later it would get away and be gone for 4 or 5 days, this went on for about 8 months, then one day it didn't come back, but it was seen many time running in a pack in the fields,,,

my niece's dog became uncontrollable and untrainable too, it would also run if it got away, this dog bit 2 people without warning and without reason, it's to bad but it was put down, I myself took care of this dog for some time, about 2 months,,,

the 3rd dog was a friend's and it was just wild, it too ran off..

Just a word of CAUTION ericslife , who you tell, or post this.
It is illegal in Alberta to own a wolf of wolf hybred.
I got this info from a guy who works for Alberta Fish and Wildlife.

I have a couple of huskies in my house. One thing you need to be aware of is that wolves are PACK ANIMALS. They like dens, and feel extremely vulnerable when alone (away from their pack). You just became part of the pack. My house is ruled by a "pack mentality"...because without it, this place would be a madhouse with all of the challenges.

I strongly suggest you do research into the rules of the pack. You need to understand the signs for when your dog (wolf) challenges your authority and thinks that you are no longer higher in the chain of command...and then you need to know how to correctly take that challenge to show that your dog is WRONG to challenge (a beating is NOT the answer here).

Beautiful animal though! Hopefully the traits follow the external beauty!

(a beating is NOT the answer here).
Indeed. That just makes them afraid and it defeats the purpose of security.

When pups, all you have to do is HOLD (pin) them down on their backs.
This renders them defensiveless and then they will learn who really is the ALPHA.

I have seen several documentaries showing that putting them on their backs is a way of showing the dominance. This can be done for pups as well as for adults.

Check around on the web, you should be able to find some information. Check around with some local vets and trainers; you could probably find infortion on how to do this properly with an adult. I actually can remember one trainer at our local PetsMart showing this technique one day after the training session to a couple of guys with large dogs.
