Wolf Hybrid

Wolf / Domestic Dog Cross

As of about 1990 the correct term for a mix of a wolf and a domestic dog is “wolfdog.” The dog was reclassified as a sub-species of wolf (canis lupus familiaris) and as such, it is impossible to have a hybrid as they are two of the same species. Although technically incorrect, the term "hybrid" is still used by many, particularly when it comes to mixing two purebred domestic dogs.

It was brought to our attention by some wolfdog fanciers that there are many animals out there that are claimed to be wolfdogs, but are actually Nordic-type dog mixes. Apparently some are pictured inside this section. We made the decision to keep this wolf hybrid section as a comparison with the dogs that have been proven to be true wolfdogs. You can see some examples at Non-Wolfdogs: Mistaken Identity.

We would like you to do your own comparison between this wolf hybrid section and our proven wolfdog section. There are many dogs in shelters that are killed because they look like wolves when they are actually a Nordic-type dog, such as a Husky or Malamute mix. Falsely labeling animals as wolfdogs in shelters can be detrimental. Nordic dogs are being killed and wolfdogs are not going to the proper rescues where there are people who know how to deal with them.

The Wolf Hybrid is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between a domestic dog and a wolf. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed.Loki the Arctic and Timber Wolf / Husky mix at 6 months old. Anyone owning a Wolf Hybrid should read these two pages: Top Dog and Establishing and Keeping Alpha Position, and MUST understand dog/wolf psychology and be willing to follow it. This hybrid is not recommended for most people.

"I first met Charlie, my Siberian Husky / Timber Wolf mix at a homeless shelter for youth. Charlie needed a foster home so that his owner could focus on getting his own life on track (his owner has since reunited with his human family). Charlie was born in Alaska and was brought to the southwest. His paws are extremely sensitive to our heat. When I first encountered him he was a 4-year-old male with the typical wolf trait of timidity around strangers and had more of a nonchalant attitude toward people. He has the typical long-legged body, a double coat that sheds constantly, and thick fur on his shoulders and hind legs that becomes very exaggerated when he is disturbed. He has one blue eye that helps show off his Siberian Husky physical traits. His webbed feet give him an agility that he displays over my other dogs when I take them up north to play in the snow—he seems to run on top of the snow (and loves to make snow-angels) while the rest must trudge through it.

Beautiful 2 year old lab/collie looking for a mate. White with cream strip going down her back, and two strips on each side. 50lbs Very smart and well behaved. Male must be 50+lbs, Dobie, white Akita, or a half (or higher) timber wolf mix. Puppies will be free, and owner of the male will get 2nd pick of the litter.
This dog is the start of a new breed of guard dog. This breed will be very fast, smart, powerful, and knows when to be gentle around kids. All the breeds in this line so far are lab/akita/rotty/collie/ and half wolf
