In many states, it's illegal to sell prior to 8 weeks. He's a big 6 weeks!

There are no age limits on selling puppies in Texas.

I hope it's just a dog and not a wolf cub. Having a wolf with two little dogs and possibly a baby soon sounds like a recipe for disaster.

bwwuaauauhaah that's a dog. It doesn't even look like a wolfdog, let alone a pure wolf pup. She was scammed, which is honestly the best thing that could have resulted. Because trying to care for a wolf pup with two small dogs, a baby on the way, while renting is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard. If I was her boss and I heard that, I'd fire her, because with that kind of stupidity there would be no way she could be effective at her job.

Tell her to check out these facebook groups and let the experts convince her she doesn't have a wolf pup:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/wolfdog101/
https://www.facebook.com/groups/stop...epresentation/

And this forum:
WOLFDOG FORUM • Index page

And tell her to view this website:

She actually is. She's one of those extremely well-meaning people who make bad decisions for the best reasons possible. But she's very reliable and good at her job.

Also, her job is not in jeopardy. She's the owner's niece.

I agree that it is not a wolf pup. I'm not an expert, but I have seen a bunch of wolf cubs and wolf hybrids and that doesn't look like them. Agreed that's the best result, too.

I'm not disagreeing about that.

Her well-meaning intentions could have got her evicted, both of her dogs killed, and her future baby killed as well. If she had rescued it because she wanted to give it to a zoo or someone experienced who would provide a good home, that would have been different and well-meaning. But it sounds like she wanted to keep it.

She feels like she is rescuing it because it is blind and she wants to give it a home. I am not denying it was a stupid decision, but she made it in a well-meaning state of mind.

So lay off of the personal attacks, please?
