We get donations of leg bones, spines etc...The bones last for 6 months or so till we have to remove them .The sun bleaches them so that they start to shater, creating a hazard for the pups.

I am not worried about my femur yet, but have been bitten a few times My wife was bitten by a feral Wolfdog 2 months ago...his canines are 1.25 inches long, the punctures were close to 1 inch deep.

You have to be on your guard, but generally they are very affectionate. the key is controlling the rescources (FOOD)!

We have a couple of low content wolfdogs that are pretty freindly. They can be trusted around children and adults without issue. Nyx (the girl on the bottom of the photo) is one of them.

There are several others here that we do not allow children under 12 around at all, and generally can not be trusted with strangers. Venus (the girl at the top in the photo) is one of these. She is very timid around strangers, and if cornered will aggress. If she is with the rest of the pack, especially with Khan (the big wolfypoo in my avatar) and Damon they will stalk small people and animals. We have seen on two occasions where this group has acted as in the wild...use your imagination, only small wild game animals crossing our property were involved.

Wolfdogs can be good companions, but they are hard to evaluate as cubs to determine if they will be ok in a family. The best bet is to get one that is F3+ (F3, F4, F5 etc) as these tend to be more domesticated no matter the percentage.

As far as "work" os concerned...I am a behaviorist, my wife is a vet tech. We run a rescue, and boarding/training facility. We find it easy to deal with wolfdogs. That being said, we have taken in and readopted out a lot of wolfdogs because they are to much work for the average family.

A low content wolfdog will be very destructive, may be an escape artist, might have a prey drive, should be ok in most situations a "normal " dog can handle.

A mid content wolfdog will be very destructive, will be an escape artist, will likely have a prey drive (hopefully) limited to small animals, may be ok in most low stress situations a normal dog can handle

A high content wolfdog will be extraordinarily destructive, will be an amazing escape artist, will have a prey drive that has no limits as to size or species, will not do well at all in any strange situation...basically an animal you would expect to see in a zoo. Basically a hand grenade in the wrong situation....

I have covered several cases of high content wolfdogs killing livestock, aggressing towards humans etc. They are not a companion to be taken llightly, and need constant engagement to keep them out of trouble.

The little guy up front is Rocky (aka ****head) the 9 month old Fox Terrier/Jack Russell Mix. In the back is Jasper, 4 y/o terrier/Beagle mix. Jasper loves wine and cider, Rocky loves Stouts and wits like me.

Good lord, I have 2 Aussies and they constantly bicker over food. I have to sit between them to keep them separated at dinner time, otherwise they just growl at each other. My fingers have been caught in the crossfire a couple times.

I can only imagine what it's like with wolfdogs!

Many many beautiful pups on this thread!!! I hate to make generalizations, but I would be inclined to say canine companions of homebrewers may be the happiest on earth based on the pics here



And now for the legal part...sorry




***Disclaimer***

We do not advocate the breeding of Wolfdogs. I know at times my posts may seem to glorify these creatures, but in reality, they are exotic and wild animals and should be treated as such. Unfortunately, folks get caught up in the idea of having a "bit of the wild" in their home, or want wolfdogs for spiritual reasons, or sometimes want Wolfdogs as watchdogs, or just want one because "they are cool"....These are the wrong reasons to have a Wolfdog as a companion, and these are just a few of the reasons people have given me as to why they got the animal that they are now surrendering to HVWS.

Please...do the research, talk to knowlegeable people, spend some time among Wolves and Wolfdogs before adopting or getting one as a companion.
