Here is a couple side by side comparisons. Of a high content wolfdog Selene and a low/no content Max. There is so many people out there with animals that look like Max that try and say they are highs, and try to say there is no difference in they’re looks and a pure wolf.
Look at this beautiful wolfdog, it just wandered into my backyard and I had to take care of it. You know its a real wolf dog because it doesn’t bark, I took it to the vet and he said it definitely was not a dog.
I don’t think you other people really understand how hard it is too keep and train a wolf, it keeps hissing at me even now.
The majestik wolfdog’s first form of defence when faced with danger is it’s loud bark that actually sounds more like hissing. It’s other form of defence is it’s unique “if I don’t move I must be invisible” thought process. Unfortunately this action usually fails as wolfdog’s cannot infact become invisible.
Obviously, this is not a wolfdog, but in fact, a pure wolf. The salt-and-pepper coloration of the fur is indicative of an older animal, past it’s prime, but the old brute will nevertheless pose a challenge for its new owners.
Here’s a photo of the pure wolf I worked with last summer for comparison:
My wolf was a little younger than the one above, which is why he’s a bit more testy about having a camera up in his face.
Inevitably, releasing him was our only option because he grew very restless at night and it was keeping us all awake. He was obviously pining for his old life in the woods. You can take the wolf out of the wild, you can’t take the wild out of the wolf!
Anonymous said: I like your blog quite a bit but there is no way the "half wolf puppy" is really so. Then it would be a mid content and therefore should not be pure white.
Ah yes, you are right! That was a submission. I’m not familiar with the lineage of the puppy but the submitter did say that the puppy was half “wolf hybrid”, which means that one of the puppy’s parents can be anywhere from very little wolf content to high content. I would also disagree if the puppy was said to be half wolf.
This is a blog about wolves, wolfdogs, wolf-wannabe dogs, dogs, and - occasionally - other members of the genus canis. It consists mostly of pretty pictures, sometimes ones from breeder sites. I am not associated with any of the breeders. I do not own any of the pictures (unless they are of my dog ;] )
This blog does not intend to encourage or discourage wolfdog ownership. I only share photos, videos, and info that is valid to the best of my knowledge.
Wolfdog misrepresentation has become a serious problem recently. By labelling pictures posted as accurately as possbile, I hope to help viewers understand some basic differences between dogs, low-/mid-/high-content mixes, and wolves.
