Possible wolves stalking my shepherds!!

Hi everyone, It's been awhile since I've posted but we had a situation yesterday that gave us a uneasy feeling!

Here goes:
Last night around 11pm I let both Max and Molly out for there business and when I opened the door both dogs bolted barking and growling. Both Max and Molly headed towards the bush then I called them back. They came back right away but were losing it, barking and growling in the direction they ran!. Then I noticed at the end of our driveway there was a huge dog standing there waiting so I called Max and Molly in. I got both my dogs in the house and yelled at my wife to come out and see this the big dog(I'm thinking was a wolf ) stood there then ran down out of site! This morning I decided to go see the tracks in the snow, there was huge prints leading to a bunch of other prints down by the water then they all headed into the bush! I'm kinda freeked out I'm thinking the wolf was luring my dogs!!!
will wolves actually hunt dogs

You could install a motion detecting camera to see what happens when you are not around. It is very interesting to find out about nightly visitors.
Breaker's mom and VTGirlT like this.

Do you know if there are any wolf groups/sanctuaries in your area? They might have info on deterring these guys (if they are wolves).

I don't think there is any group around that I can think of!
But will look into it for sure

It is scary I don't want any harm to my dogs! We live in the bush don't think it's feral dogs?
The big dog (i'm thinking it was a wolf) was huge and sat at the end of our driveway like it wanted to be seen to get my shepherd to chase it!

Do you have a fence?

Predators don't usually eat other predators, they don't make for a good meal, but dogs being predators could be considered competition for food.

Living in heavily forested areas means this will be a constant risk, I suggest getting a fence if you don't already have one. You can't always watch your dogs so an area for safe potty would be a good idea.
