    Your dog is NOT a high content wolf dog IF
    -it has blue eyes
    -if they have a liver or brown nose
    -if they have dark brown eyes
    -have a curly tail
    -Pink pigmentation (pads,nose,ect)
    -was born in a season other than spring(the only exception is if the mom is a lower content wolf dog and takes the dogs breeding cycle in this case the wold dogs would not be considered true "high content"..
    -Do not have large pointy ears

    (the exception to these would be low-lowermid content wolf dogs)


    A lot of dogs people claim to be "Wolf dogs" are just plain DOGS northern breed mixes, please don't call your dog part wolf if you do not know for sure that it is. It's sad that when a husky mix attacks someone it is labeled a wolf dog because people do not know any better, even Cesar millan falsely labeled 3 dogs as wolf dogs who do not seem to have ANY wolf in them at all....

    This is what REAL High content wolf dogs look like

    Upper mid content wolf dog
    Lower-mid content

    low content wolf dogs(they vary GREATLY depending on what dogs were used in the mix

    Video in which Cesar Millan falsely labels dogs as "wolf dogs"( i would just watch the intro)

    Even Cesar Milan made this mistake?! Blasphemy!!!

    I will willingly admit that throughout my childhood, I did label a dog as being "part wolf" because it had blue eyes. Upon further research, wrongfully so.

    I'll also admit that I was a bit inebriated when writing that post (an this one) so forgive the grammatical errors, and this one. Carry on.

    (Cliff notes: The dog was likely not a wolf but I wrongfully thought so because it had blue eyes.)

    Good post! I hate seeing northern breed mixes mislabeled as "wolfdogs," though I have admittedly made the mistake myself. I have been around a real mid- to high-content wolfdog and her temperament is VERY different from a dog.

    Great post!! I see people all the time with their so-called "wolfdogs" that are generally GSD/malamute/husky mutts. While many of the people who actually DO own true high-content wolfdogs will call them husky or malamute crosses.

    Personally I love wolfdogs, there's quite a few of them up here; unfortunately too many of the owners are piss poor irresponsible owners that often let their dogs run loose because "they're meant to be free" which has led to livestock incidents, dogfights, etc. giving the wolfdogs a bad name...

    We get a lot of wolf mixes in my area... a few by accident a few on purpose. I HATE PEOPLE WHO BREED WOLF-DOGS FOR PETS. I honestly dont agree with it at all for any reason, but definitely not for pets. Wolves are extremely intelligent, active, high strung, prey driven, and most of all wild. I see a lot come thru our shelter that appear to be wolf mix because theyre too hyper, always escape, too animal aggressive, dont get along with other dogs in the home, etc. Wolves have no place in the world of domestic pets, just my opinion though.

    Just want to say that just because a dog has those characteristics doesn't make them a wolf dog a lot of northern breeds would exhibit those traits

    People ALWAYS lie about this here. I swear, every agouti Sib or Mal mix that comes through the owners claim is "Half wolf". Which pisses me off because pure and F1 wolves are illegal to CA and they're saying it likes it's something good. Don't even realize they're putting their dog in danger.

    My friend has a gorgeous high content male, super nice boy. But he is totally different from a dog, it's like night and day.

    Another thing about high contents (From what my wolf friends explained to me) is that they have very loose feet (see in picture). They said that it is to help them move across the snow in winter months.

    Which is why I said appear to be. But regardless wolves dont belong amongst domesticated breeds. Especially in the hands of people with no breed specific handling experience or knowledge.

    I would love to have a real wolfdog. They are beautiful animals. Probably never will because I wouldn't even know where to get one besides these idiots selling dogs labeled as wolf hybrids.

    Wolves have had a special place in my heart since I was really young. I went to Wolf Park in Indiana one time and I was so jealous of the handlers that were in with the main pack. I was only 11 so I couldnt go in with the wolf I adopted but they let me pet their really old and blind wolf, Aurora.

    Me too. When I was a kid my neighbor had one (with the big splayed feet) and she was so cool.

    But, I'd want a lot of land, and a lot of time and money.

  17. I once rented a room from a gentleman who owned a white Wolf. He had a special pen built for him, and he had made a secure chain spot for him to go out on for an hour or two a day. It took me a while to befriend him, but when I did it was pretty amazing. His paw was bigger than my two hands put together. He had the most beautiful piercing eyes. I had a lot of respect for him and what he was capable of.

    There is a breeder here in North Houston that sells F2 wolf hybrids, even though they are illegal here to my knowledge. I just think it's way too hot here for an animal like that, poor things. People just want exotic animals that look cool and different, smh.

    I would just like to say damn you because since you posted this thread I've been looking at wolfdog rescues lol and practically crying at the beautiful animals available and the fact that I can't have one.
