Are males normally larger than females or is it the breeding?


Sorry to ask the questions.
Hey its no problem, I rather people ask than fall victim to misinformation. The answer is yes to both; Males are generally larger than females but it also matters what breed the wolf is mixed with. For example, a wolf mixed with malamute can potentially yield larger pups than a wolf mixed to a smaller breed like a husky. Hope that makes sense :)

Are they mixed with a GSD or are they just wolves? Either way they're gorgeous; a little scary, but that stems from a past experience of mine. I'm trying to get over it (it's mainly all black caninels: wolves, black GSD's, Belgian Sheepdogs, breeds like that), but yours are very nice looking. :)

Haha, a wolamute I heard they were called. Wolf + Malamute=Wolamute. http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/wolamute.htm

My boy is mixed with GSD and my female with malamute. Sorry to hear about your bad experience, I hope it doesn't deter you from similar breeds in the future :)

Where did you get your wolfdogs?
I got mine from a local breeder. I researched the breed for a couple of years before making the commitment to own. Also my wife had one growing up, that really helped too.

Do you plan to breed? And do you have any tips/warnings for people who might be interested in owning a wolfdog? (I'm not, I'm just curious.)

No I'm not a breeder, I optioned for a male and female to avoid same gender aggression.

As for tips, I recommend people do their research no matter what breed or animal for that matter. I've seen too many animals pay the price as a result of irresponsible owners. I'm sure I'm not preaching anything new :)

None of the dogs on that page look like they have wolf in them at all!

Yours are beautiful, however, and I can definitely see the wolf in them. :)

First of all thanks to all for the positive comments.

They do behave a little different than your standard GSD or Malamute. For example they exhibit a little higher food guarding, also higher pacing and digging tendencies, etc.. That being said owning a large breed like a GSD or Northenbreed will help prepare someone for a wolfdog in the future. My two are very sociable and very affectionate especially my female.
