Breed Group: Not AKC Recognized
Varying shades of black, white and gray.
Before purchasing a Wolf Hybrid it is extremely important to check State and Local laws. The Wolf Hybrid is typically referred to as "WolfDog". They are a cross of an Arctic Wolf with a large dog breed.
The Wolf Hybrid is generally well-proportioned and very large. They possess long limbs, are agile, and muscular. The face has the appearance of a Wolf with a long, tapering muzzle.
The Wolf Hybrid is not recommended for inexperienced or timid owners. They are loyal, devoted, and family oriented. As a "pack" animal they do well with large sized dogs they have been raised with. They are not recommended for homes with small dogs, cats or other household pets. Wolf Hybrid's are suspicious of strangers and will protect their family, property, and territory. The Wolf Hybrid is not recommended for homes with children.
Regular brushing is recommended of the Wolf Hybrid. Dry-shampooing will suffice. They may be prone to hip dysplasia.
The coat of the Wolf Hybrid is dependent upon the breed of dog breed used. However, the Wolf has a double coat that is extremely dense.
Early, intense, and ongoing socialization and obedience is crucial. The Wolf Hybrid will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with respect, firmness, fairness, and consistency.
The Wolf Hybrid possesses high endurance and great energy. They are not recommended for apartment or city living. Wolf Hybrid's do best in a securely fenced rural setting with ample room to roam and run.
Help reduce the number of Wolf Hybrid puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

AnonymousI'm from India. Will the climate here be ok for a wolf hybrid?
5/1/2015 8:12:49 AM
No, I would not suggest a wolf hybrid for your area. Even with adequate shade and water, the dog could easily over-heat. You also need to look at laws in your area, as many places around the world do not allow wolf-hybrids in residential area's and/or you need a permit to own one.

AnonymousWhat do you mean by firmness when training? I have a pit mastiff mix and I never hit him, just very stern voice and he is very submissive. What I'm asking is how would you go about training a wolf hybrid with another dog already around and what if I have children at 5 and 6?
4/17/2015 1:06:43 PM
Firmness is not hitting. Firmness is exactly what you do, using a stern voice and not allowing your dog to get away with things as a puppy that he/she wouldn't be allowed to get away with as an adult. A firm handler is an owner that trains their dog so their dog has manners and knows the commands and follows them when asked. A weak handler is someone who allows their dog to control them and do whatever they want. Wolf Hybrids are NOT good with young children. Children must be at least 10 years old and be dog-savvy and supervision is a MUST when children are around. A scream or a flail of an arm can make a Wolf Hybrid react with prey drive and it only takes a second for an injury to happen. Training any dog when another dog is around is not hard if you separate the dogs while the training session is happening.

AnonymousHow would a Wolf Hybrid breed go with a bull terrier?
4/5/2015 10:50:14 PM
The average wolf-dog is not good with smaller dogs. The Bull Terrier is a fair sized dog, but may be too small for the wolf-hybrid. However, every dog is different and some can be okay with smaller dogs. But they would have to be raised and socialized with them at a very young age.

AnonymousHi, I'm planning to move out soon. Don't know where though but I wanted to own a wolf-dog hybrid for awhile. I want a someone to protect me, comfort me, to play and love me- a companion is what I'm trying to say. I've done some research but I just wanted to get a bunch of other things out of the way before I ever get one. Anyways, what I wanted to ask was:
- Do Wolf-dog hybrids stress easily when traveling by car?
- Do most of them run away? I've heard majority of them run away because of being kept them captive- they say it stresses them out.
- What should I do to make the wolf-dog hybrids comfortable and at ease?
- How much time will I need to give up for them? I want a job and enough time to meet the wolf-dog hybrids needs and attention. I don't want to come home with it being unhappy and mischievous.
4/5/2015 9:00:54 PM
First and foremost, you must understand that a wolf-dog is part wolf. No matter how small, they are part wild animal that have many different instincts compared to a dog. So there are a lot of things to consider when thinking of getting one. Secondly, you need to find out if they are legal in your area. Wolf-dogs are illegal in many states, and in some you need a permit. So you MUST find that out before even thinking of getting one. You need a 7 - 8 ' fence as they are great jumpers. You need a large amount of outdoor space that is fully fenced in.
4/6/2015 10:01:01 AM
Socialization will be the key factor as to if your dog would be stressed in a vehicle or not. Most will want to wander as that is their natural instinct, which is why you need a fenced in yard. The wolf-dog needs an average of 2 - 2 1/2 hours of running exercise a day. They should be on a raw-food diet (not cheap). You need to read up on Seasonal Aggression as well if you plan on getting a wolf-dog. You should spend an average of 4 hours a day caring for and exercising your wolf-dog, but that doesn't count for just hanging out with your pet. You should spend at least an hour a day training your dog as a pup as well.

3/22/2015 11:41:38 AM
Do not get a wolf hybrid if you have a small dog. Wolf hybrids are normally bred with German Shepherds, Alaskan Malamutes or Siberian Huskies to try and keep the wolf-look. All three of those breeds have a high prey drive to begin with and the wolf has an extremely high prey drive. Please wait until your Jack Russell has crossed rainbow bridge, or get a different dog. Do not put the dog you have now at risk.

AnonymousI have a wolf hybrid which is timber wolf/black lab. She is 2 months. Can you tell me what sex of another pup I should get. Not getting another hybrid just a regular pup or just a mix breed pup. Want to get her a playmate. So she is not lonely. She whines a lot by herself.
3/1/2015 9:49:19 AM
Your pup is two months old. She just left her mother and siblings, of course she is lonely. But do NOT get another dog. If you get another dog, your pup and that dog/pup will bond so closely to each other that they will not bond well with you. In which case you will have a very, very tough time training them. Spend time with your pup and work with her, train her and do fun activities together. Wolf hybrids bond tightly to one person in the family and that person should be YOU, not another dog.

AnonymousI have a small ranch with horses, do wolf hybrids do well being around horses and open fields? Will they stay and follow you on say a trail ride?
2/24/2015 3:14:03 PM
The wolf hybrid is remember, part wolf -- so in turn the wolf has a higher prey drive then most dogs. So if you were to get a dog, it would have to be a pup and a lower content so that the dog could grow up with horses and learn to be calm around then. As for staying on a trail ride, the dog may do alright, but precautions would have to be taken as in many places you need a permit to have the hybrid, so having it off leash may not work in your area. You would have to do some research.

AnonymousDo you think a Wolf Hybrid would be suited for a college coed? My girlfriend wants one but I don't thinks it's the right time for one.
2/23/2015 12:06:30 AM
No, I would never suggest a Wolf Hybrid to a college co-ed. The Wolf Hybrid needs an experienced dog owner that has roots down. The owner must own their own home/property and have the correct fencing (6' high at lowest) put in and permits if needed in the area you live in. Wolf Hybrids are 'trendy' right now, but please tell your girlfriend to wait. She needs to do a ton more research on the mixture and needs to have a steady income (they should be fed a raw diet or grain-free/high-quality dog food which is not cheap) and need special care.

AnonymousWhy are these wolf hybrids not recommended with a child in the household?
2/21/2015 12:36:14 AM
Wolf hybrids have wolf blood in them. The wolf has higher prey-drive instincts and children can be considered prey to a wolf hybrid. Quick movements, running, screaming, laughing, crying can all trigger the hybrids hunting instincts easily. A child over 10 is normally alright as long as the child is respectful of animals, but it is not recommended to have young children for the reasons above.

Are you looking for a Wolf Hybrid puppy for sale from a dog breeder? Or are you interesting in finding a bitch or stud to begin breeding Wolf Hybrids. Many breeders will ship their puppies after they pass health checks, are of age, and may withstand the stresses of travel. You should contact breeders listed here for further information.
2/4/2015 8:11:35 PM
First and foremost, you need to make sure that the area you are in allows wolf hybrids without a permit. If you need a permit, then you need to get that permit for your area. Once you know for sure, finding a breeder is next. Many breeders will ship their puppies, but it is always best to meet your future puppy, the sire and dam of the puppy and the breeder him/her-self.

No. The Siberian Husky and the Alaskan Malamute are not wolves or wolf hybrids. They are breeds of dogs that have been genetically bred to resemble wolves, but there is no blood in them. If you want wolf in your dog, you will have to get a wolf hybrid.
1/29/2015 11:00:23 AM
Siberian Huskys are not bred to look like wolves!!!! If you do any research on a Siberian Husky you would know that DNA analysis confirms that true Siberian Huskys are the oldest breed of dog. They are a descendant of Siberian wolves but many many centuries domesticated. Siberian Huskys are a spitz class dog bred for arctic temperatures and for pulling sleds, not to look like wolves. If you actually do research instead of just trying to convince someone to buy a wolf-hybred you would know these things. Although wolf hybrid animals are all the rave right now they are first and foremost part of a wild animal and should not be pets.....

AnonymousWolf Hybrid Do Wolf Hybrids not like small dogs or small children? Will they ever try to kill them?
1/3/2015 11:36:30 PM
When raised with children and or small pets they should be fine, it really depends on the content of your wolfdog. All dogs have a prey instinct, just some have a higher one. I have seen Wolfdogs raised with cats and even some with chicken, but mine will kill them. My female tried to kill my husbands G-MA Chihuahua. She grabbed her by the back of the neck and shook her until we all screamed then she let her go. Getting your pet fixed helps some, and NEVER leave any large breed type animal alone with a small child or smaller dog types.
1/5/2015 11:37:01 AM
Every breed of dog, or any canine has a prey drive. Prey drive is what makes a dog want to chase thing. If the prey drive is strong, then a dog will chase small dogs and sometimes children. However, prey drive does not mean that the dog is aggressive. Some dogs, whom are larger that have a high prey drive will accidentally hurt a smaller dog or child by knocking them down because of the sheer size difference. However, since there would be wolf in your dog, you must must do as much socialization as possible. Teaching the dog what he/she can and can not chase is key, and showing them what to do and how to act around those situations is also important. All interactions between your pup/dog and any small animals or children should be supervised at all times.

Now in your posts, you don't recommend these dogs for small kids, but seeing how these animals bond with their 'pack', Luke, my dog, has done with me, isn't it possible for the puppy to bond with the child and view it as family to them?
12/23/2014 12:11:05 AM
To answer your question with one word, yes. But, there are always precautions anyone should take when bringing an animal into their home that have wild blood in it. The wolf has a very large prey drive, which means that the puppy or adult wants and will chase anything that runs or moves quickly. Children run, scream, giggle, flail their arms and make noises that can make a wolf hybrid dog use it's wild instincts.
12/23/2014 9:09:36 AM
Now any breed of dog with a high prey drive should be watched around children at all times. But since the wolf blood in the wolf hybrid is there beyond a doubt, it is more known for them to have a higher prey drive compared to other breeds of dogs. If you choose to bring a puppy into your home and raise it with your daughter, that is your choice. But you must understand the risks and work with that puppy to train him/her as well as supervising all interactions with your daughter and the dog. Until she is old enough to know how to act around a wolf hybrid, and she is big enough, all interactions should be supervised.

AnonymousHow much do Wolf Hybrids cost?
10/29/2014 7:07:50 PM
A Wolf Hybrid's purchase price will all depend on where you live and the breeder(s) you are looking at. But, like all dogs, you should be getting your Wolf Hybrid from a reputable, qualified and knowledgeable breeder. The average price for a medium to high-content Wolf Hybrid in Canada and the U.S.A is between $1500.00 - $2500.00 depending on the content of wolf, the breeder themselves and which breed of dog the wolf is mixed with. Please note that no breeder should be able to give you a percentage of wolf in their puppies unless they are half wolf, half domesticated dog. However, they can use the terms, low-content, medium content and high content.
10/30/2014 9:45:00 AM
Some states in the U.S.A require you to have a permit for a wolf or a wolf hybrid, depending on the content of wolf in the animal. So please do your research and understand that these animals are not 'dog-park' animals. They are companion animals that need to be exercised properly, fed a raw diet and need at least a 7 foot tall fence with 2 feet underground for digging purposes. These animals are not domesticated pets and need to be monitored at all times when with people, especially children and other pets.

10/9/2014 10:07:59 PM
Yes, the life span of a wolf hybrid will depend on the breed of dog the wolf is bred with. But on average, the life span of the wolf hybrid is about 10 years. But they can live longer and they can have a shorter life span as well. The right diet and exercise will also be a part of how long the wolf hybrid will live.

2/19/2014 8:51:41 PM
A wolf is a wolf. Whether or not it is mixed with another breed of wolf, it is still a wolf. So basically, you need to figure out if you need a permit to own the animal first. Then, you need to find a trainer who's worked with wolves or wolf hybrids before. A wolf is not a dog, there are going to be a lot of behavior differences and things that you will need to know. You may even have to get a special type of insurance, as wolf bites are not under the same legal standard as a dog bite.

Personally we bring our wolf hybrids in in the summers once heat raises above the 95 mark, but I keep them brushed. Making sure under coat is thinned and also make sure that they have plenty of water for dringking and wading in.
1/30/2014 1:14:04 PM
A wolf hybrid can live in a place like Arizona as long as you treat the dog like any other dog with a double coat/long fur. If the dog is to be outside, he/she must have access to fresh cool water, a shaded area and a kiddie pool filled half way always helps. But bringing your wolf hybrid indoors and allowing him/her to be in an air conditioned house is best for yourself and your wolf hybrid.

If you want pictures, the best thing to do is to Google mixes of wolf and G.S.D. Depending what breed of wolf the dog is mixed with and the weight/height of the G.S.D the pup is mixed with, the pup could end up being anywhere from 65-100 lbs. Diet and exercise is of course, a variable to the weight of the hybrid as well.

A raw diet is best for wolfdogs. They can eat any kind of raw meat but chicken leg quarters and chicken hearts are economical. Upper mids and highs really need to be fed raw. Lower mids and lows can be fed a premium quality grain free kibble. Vegetables do nothing for wolfdogs - or ANY dogs - as their systems are not designed to process cellulose.

It is hard to say. Any real wolf has a very strong prey drive and will not be safe with small pets or children, once the animal is mature. I would strongly suggest working with a qualified trainer/behaviorist as you raise your puppy, and educating yourself as to what predatory behavior looks like. Never leave small kids alone with any big dog, and especially a wolfdog! I have worked with pure wolves and wolfdogs for almost 30 years now, and while I admit they are fascinating animals, wolves do NOT make good pets and many wolfdogs are fare more challenging than most people can handle.

They should be over a year old at least & their 2nd heat or later.
3/25/2013 11:12:56 AM
Wolfdogs are special-needs dogs that should not be bred. Only too often they wind up with people who don't understand their natures or their needs [containment, diet, training, etc.] and the dogs wind up being passed on, dumped somewhere, chained, neglected or abused, or at the shelter. Since wolfdogs are illegal inmost counties and states across the US, the shelters are euthanizing wolfdogs by the thousands. Wolfdogs do not fit well into our society, nor would they survive in the wild. If you really want a wolfdog, then look to Wolfdog Rescues and help one in need.

High content wolfdogs won't even start their cycle until they are about 2-3 years old. Depending on phentotypes- most come in once a year during mid-winter. the second heat is ideal for most breeders.

AnonymousHow long does it take for a wolf hybrid have puppies?
11/25/2012 4:19:16 PM
I am not sure what you mean by that. Gestation (length of pregnancy) is the same as for all dogs or wolves, 59-65 days. How long they are in labor and delivering pups will vary from female to female but most would have a litter in a few hours up to maybe 8 hours. A pure wolf doesn't often go in estrus (heat) until her second winter when she is almost 2 years old. Wolves have their estrus cycles in winter and give birth in spring. Wolfdogs may vary some, especially if they are more dog than wolf. Some will have a heat cycle the first year.

Wolf hybrids are not suitable for most families. Please investigate before you make a big mistake. Don't just ask the breeder. Remember one half of this animal is wild. There was an excellent TV program on the inappropriateness of wolf hybrids. Also Cesar Millan (Dog Whisperer) has worked with them; they are not for families with children.
11/25/2012 1:45:13 PM
First of all they are not F1 or 1/2 wolves in the majority of the breedings! They are also great with children & families 99% of the time! Occasionally you get one that is very shy or timid- but I've never had one that is aggressive in any manner towards anyone-unless they have newborn babies & then they don't want anyone but me to be near. When wolfdogs( or any dog for that matter) is mistreated or raised by an idiot( see anonymous)...then of course problems are to be expected! Unfortunately there are a lot of poeple who shouldn't own a dog of any kind( or raise children for that matter!)
3/25/2013 11:36:09 AM
No- they would not be good for people allergic to the dander in dog hair...as they shed & blow their coats both Spring & Fall- but as my other answer states- it's not due to any problems with the wolfdogs' behavior!
3/25/2013 11:39:24 AM
It depends on what breed of dog it is mixed with. Wolves are not suppose to shed (except their winter coat), but if they get that shedding gene, then its the total opposite. Even if they're a higher content, they can still get that gene and shed EVERYWHERE. I had a 94% and he shed like crazy, but at the moment I have a 73% and she doesn't shed at all.
-As for the family, I don't understand why it was brought up, but it all depends on the dog. People say that "the more wolf, the more dangerous." Which is true because they have that instinct to hunt and prey, but I have read that the more dog, the more dangerous, because dogs have the tendency to tick and do something unexpected, when wolves do not. To be safe, I tell people no small children and no small animals. The 94% I had was great with EVERYTHING (kittens, puppies, guinea pigs, & a 3 yr old). My 73% is okay with my cats and puppies, but I wouldn't leave her alone with them.

10/13/2012 9:25:36 PM
There is no accurate DNA test to tell if a dog is part wolf or how much wolf. Since real red wolves are VERY rare and the ones in captivity are part of the government breeding program in qualified zoos and wildlife parks, it is VERY unlikely any mixbreed dog or wolfdog is really part red wolf. I see that claimed somewhat often and know it's bogus. The coloration on your dog is due to the sable gene (giving the reddish shading over other colors including white) which exists in many breeds and mixes of breeds of dog. It is not at all indicative of wolf heritage.

If you don't know for sure one parent was a wolf, it is probably not that likely your dog really IS part wolf. Wolves are only fertile part of the year (a few months) so it is not common to see a pure wolf. dog cross. A shar pei is enough smaller than a wolf that it would be hard to breed the two anyway. Depending on what time of the year your dog was born, you can rule out a wolf parent.
It is very hard to say how big your dog may get, or what his temperament would be like. Shar pei can be aggressive and protective dogs though, and I would not want to see that kind of breed crossed with a wolf as it could make pups that would be hard for many people to deal with.
