a friend had a bonafide 7/8 wolf&1/8 malamute mix for 9yrs... he was the most athletic "dog" I've ever seen... but it did challenge him fiercely, at times. He got it at around 6weeks of age too... bottle fed it and let it sleep on piles of dirty laundry to imprint his smell... a **** of a challenge,, but he loved "Luke" with all his heart,,, fyi.. he was bought in Elgin, Tx around 1992.
