In the last few years, the popularity of wolf dog breeds has increased dramatically. Whilst being magnificent creatures, they can prove challenging to take care of.
Not surprisingly, the statuesque beauty of wolf dog breeds captivate many a canine-loving human. However, the personality and physical characteristics of this type of dog mean that pet parents need to able to fulfill certain demands.
Like with all breeds, it is important to choose a dog that suits your lifestyle, environment, and personality.
What are wolf dogs?
Wolf dog hybrids are (as you may think) part wolf, part domestic dog. Dogs evolved from wolves through a long process of domestication and both share an evolutionary past as well as many behavioral and physical traits.
Both wolves and dogs are interfertile, which means that they can interbreed with any type of dog, and their offspring are capable of producing puppies themselves. Hybrids can actually occur naturally in the wild, but they are very rare as their territorial nature leads them to protect their home ranges from other intruding canines such as coyotes or other wolves.
What do wolf dogs eat?
Wolf dogs do not need to eat the carbohydrates and preservatives that are found in typical dog food. They actually eat what wolves eat - raw meat. If you own a wolf dog, you should feed them several pounds of raw meat a day. Bones are not an issue for them and it is also fine to feed them chicken and turkey. Just avoid raw pork as it can cause digestive issues. Many wolf dogs also enjoy fruit, and will need to eat fresh grass along with other vegetation. Check with your vet to make sure what food is safe for your pet.
Wolf dog breeds: the pros
Intelligent, loyal and active dogs
Wolf dogs possess a large number of excellent qualities, including intelligence and courageousness. Alert and attuned to their environment, a wolf dog will guard your home diligently, as well as those who live in it.
Usually used as sled dogs, these breeds form very strong bonds with their pet parent and as such are very receptive to commands. This extends to a strong attachment and an infallible loyalty to the people in their family whom they see as a part of their 'pack'.
