Heheh, without having read the rest of the thread yet, my first thought was "Oh, they're making... Alaskan huskies." snrk


ETA: Having said that, I don't think the sky is falling. Every breed was created because someone wasn't getting their needs filled. Same story, different year.

This is random and totally unrelated to the rest of the thread, but what I hear from strangers is, "Look mommy, an anteater!"

This is something also. I've never in my life seen a Sibe that looked like a wolf. Even though Joe Q Public will say that, they say it about Knox and Indy and Ozzy too. They've asked if Enzo is a pit bull before as well.

This is definitely a different looking dog than a Sibe. I've not seen a lot of Alaskan Huskys, but the ones I HAVE seen don't look like that either.

I could totally see getting one to just dabble in sports like agility and nosework and maybe some flyball or something. But at the same time not NEEDING to be worked like that.

There are enough big problems in dog breeding with regards to puppy mills and BYBs that have never done anything with their dogs including health/temperament testing that, honestly, someone breeding dogs they've had health tested for relevant things, had objectively temperament tested, and about which are being honest about what they actually produce? Go for it.

I love this, love the idea, I've always wanted a wolf but obviously know better, and I really want to get my hands on one of these someday as their temperament sounds perfect for me

I agree with this ^.
Frankly, we've got bigger fish to fry in the dog world.. They are honest, they health test, temperament test, people know what they are getting.. Hell, that's better then MOST places to get a dog these days.

I have an Alaskan Noble Companion Dog I love him to bits, did my research thoroughly, and am a very responsible dog owner and have plans to title my ANCD. A few assumptions that have been make here are just that - assumptions. The ANCD has been around for quite a while now and is being worked on in a meticulous way. They are a wonderful alternative for people who like the wolfy look but don't want a wolfdog. I am happy to answer any questions anyone might have about my boy Yarrow
