I have two high content wolf hybrid dogs. 75% wolf- 25% malamute- If brought in as a pup, will they get along?

As long as they are litter mates, or of opposite genders, they should do fine. Make sure both get fixed at the same time so that they do not start to dominate each other. Also make sure to keep them separated 1/3rd of the time. 1/3rd of the time should be spent on their own, 1/3rd with you and 1/3rd with the other pup. That way your dogs grow up to be well adjusted to being on their own, bonded with you and good with their house-mate.

I have other dogs, if a Caucasian Mountain Dog was added as a pup would he or she be able to co-exist with other dogs? My other dogs are about 65 pounds each. We have four acres of property, wanting to get chickens. I have been a fur baby mama for many years. We had a Bullmastiff Rottie for many years till she passed three years ago.

If the Caucasian Mountain Dog is brought in as a puppy and raised with the other dogs and the farm animals you plan to have, then yes. The dog should have no problem co-existing in your home. But make sure to already have the chickens before you get the C.M.D; so that the grows up knowing that chickens are there to be protected, not chased.

Would a Caucasian Mountain Dog do well in MI?

The Caucasian Mountain Dog should do just fine in the area that you live. But please remember that this is not a 'dog park dog'; and this breed needs an experienced dog owner. They need firm, gentle handling from day one and need to be socialized a ton to not be a threat to family, friends, strangers or other animals. Please do your research on this breed and get a hold of a reputable, responsible, knowledgeable breeder to learn more about them.

I have 2 cats and live in an area where one day it's freezing and the next it is very hot outside. First, do Caucasian Mountain Dog's do well with cats? Also how would a Caucasian Mountain Dog do in my climate?

The Caucasian Mountain Dog has a high prey drive and can be known to not do well with cats. If raised properly as a puppy, some can do alright. As per your climate; the C.M.D does not do well in hot weather. They were bred for cooler/cold weather and can over-heat very easily. I would not suggest this breed for you for those two reasons.

I live in Indiana Indianapolis is that a good place for a Caucasian Mountain Dog? It gets hot and cold over here.

The cooler months of fall, winter and spring should be no problem for a Caucasian Mountain Dog. But the hot, hot summers could be a potential problem. This breed of dog has a heavy, heavy coat of fur that needs to be brushed at least twice a week for half an hour to an hour each. Or professionally groomed once a month which will cost an average of $200.00. This must be done to rid the dog of excess fur that will over-heat him/her during the summer. If you can commit to this, as well as keeping the dog inside where there is A.C during the day, with a doggy pool and lots of water; then he/she should be okay in your area. But remember, this breed is not a breed of dog for the inexperienced owner, or someone with the possibility of financial problems. The Caucasian Mountain Dog costs a fair sum to keep up, for everything including grooming, food, space and training.
