Default Ugh, status symbol dogs.

My friend just went and paid for a puppy that is claimed to be 50% Husky, 50% Timber Wolf.

The dog, for one thing, is just a small black spitz looking mix.
For another thing, she keeps gloating about its supposed wolf content.

I asked her how they proved the dog is 50% timber wolf. I can't wait to hear the reply to that one.

When I was in high school my baby brother was attacked and almost killed by a wolf/husky hibred. His lungs were punctured, his throat nearly ripped out and he was drug by his scalp 30 feet. He was flown to a near by children's hospital in Atlanta where he spent the next few months. I'm sorry to be so negative but you should let your friend this breed needs to be watched, trained and kept close. the dog was on a leash with his owner when this happened. Please, please be careful with this dog

Ugh. Guaranteed sign you're dealing with an idiot. It almost definitely is not part wolf, but if it is, I agree with MyLilly1. Major accident waiting to happen, especially since the vast majority of people who get these hybrids are morons who shouldn't even own a dog at all.

This.

With rare rare rare exception.. people just aren't equipped to deal with these animals.
I do hope the dog is just an over-priced mix of a few breeds and not a wolf hybrid because I do agree.. otherwise, it's an accident waiting to happen.

She is refusing to even acknowledge my question to her.

She bought it as a playmate for her Sibe. I REALLY hope she doesn't plan on breeding these dogs, but she is just dumb enough to try.

I wish I didn't feel compelled to tell people the truth about these types of scams. I don't know why I do it, I know it's often hopeless, but I'm so passionate about the issues that I just can't keep my mouth shut a lot of the time.


I need a muzzle.

Her response: They had the dad on the premises and he looked just like a wolf. They gave me registration papers too.



Uh, what? Registration papers for what? Did they give you a piece of legal pad that says "this puppy is half wolf, you can trust us"? What registry would that even be with?
She's already being snarky.

Oooooooh. Registration papers. Well that shows you. Lol.

So the Malamute mix sire looks like a wolf. And where did the "breeders" get this so called "wolf?" Sigh.
