Coy Mystique by greensh Coy Mystique by greensh
From 2007. Mystique was such a pretty wolf-dog puppy. She was adopted out fairly early, so I don't have tons of pictures for her!

Do you breed them? You do know that's not wise, right? Wolf dogs, as beautiful as they are, do not make good pets.

We do breed them... my spouse has done so for many years.

You have a license to do so then, I assume? As lovely as these little guys are, it's a risky business to breed them, let alone own one... I'd love one, but they're too hard to handle and too expensive to train properly. That's why I'm just aiming to work with wolves when I get out of college.

Wolf-dog laws vary across the U.S. We live in SC. There is not a breeding license. In fact, the state refuses to issue breeding licenses to wolf-dog breeders. I say this based on my mate's personal experience. Ownership of wolf-dogs in SC is allowed. There is regulation in that SC residents can only purchase wolf-dogs from within the state. Wolf-dogs over 50% cannot be brought in from other states. Laws regarding wolf-dogs vary from state to state, so everyone should do their own due diligence.

Best of luck with your career! I do hope you get to work with wolves!

Thank you very much, and I wish you luck with your breeding. Make sure you only give those gorgeous babies to people who will put in the time effort and love required to properly raise them!

Having bred them I think he knows how to handle them. Also maybe 1 in 200 people actually know how to care for them properly, so the do make good pets, just not for anybody. Just because it has wolf in it doesn't make it evil, just harder to handle, too hard for most. I should know, I've worked with several.

Whoa, slow down. I never said having wolf in it makes it evil. Wolves happen to be my favorite animal AND are the reason I'm studying wildlife biology in college right now. They're my passion. I know what phenomenal creatures they are. I love ad respect them. But I still don't believe they are the best choice of pet when bred with dogs. The genetic crossing causes higher levels of aggression and territorialism than in a normal dog or wolf if it was purebred. I'm not saying you can't train them, I'm just saying it's highly risky and not the best idea... Especially since pure dogs are already abandoned at such high of a rate as it is, let alone a harder-to-handle wolf-dog. Those usually end up getting put down in the end...

I probably just overshot your statement. I know all about tendencies, which is why I think very few people are qualified for wolf dogs. You have to know all about dogs and wolves separately as well as combined, plus they require a larger environment and more time then most dogs. The best environment I've seen them in is a dogsled kennel I've worked at. Plenty of space, and lots of work and other dogs. It's sad when someone buys one and puts it down, just because they are not qualified to care for them, so like I said, probably 1 in 200+ people who want a wolf dog is qualified. I can tell you all about how to handle dogs, train stubborn ones, can practically tell you everything about a dog at a glance, even worked with wolf dogs in dogsledding, but I still don't think I'm qualified to handle a wolf dog in a pet setting yet (Maybe I could for a dogsledding kennel but outside that environment I'm not qualified yet).

All in all, I think it's okay to have or breed them IF you are well qualified to handle them and take care of their needs.

I agree. I only think people who are tenacious and willing enough should be allowed to own them. I don't fully agree with owning one personally, but that's because I prefer to see "wild" animals stay "wild". But again, that is my personal preference as a future wildlife biologist.

My lovely spouse says that the issue is more so the dog in the wolf instead of the other way around. My own opinion is that wolf-dogs take a respective firm hand, but this is true even for the smallest dogs.

That's what I've seen at the dogsledding kennels I've worked at. They need someone who not only loves them, but is a strong leader figure, an alpha.

Agreed! We love our animals, but they've got to remember who the alpha is... the human.
