glowingtoadfly I do, after much thought, think that there are responsible wolfdog breeders who screen homes and don't sell to illegal states, and who take their wolfdogs back if it doesn't work out, so it is ok for them to breed in my book.. Just like any other responsible breeder. I think Nicole Wilde would agree..

glowingtoadfly Just read the beginning of that thread and I am already hooked. I have read A Man Among Wolves...It was a quick read. I also enjoyed Second Nature by Alice Hoffman... A poetic novel about a boy raised by wolves. Well written, but like many of her novels, fantastical.

Combining them doesn't make them 'more' beautiful, it just creates problems for all concerned.

I bet there's a lot of debate about the science, especially if it doesn't support some people's agenda, belief, income stream.

And WRT to breeding wolves for 'pet purposes' I'm all for more draconian laws (which I'm usually not but this is pretty clear cut) Just like we don't need people trying to pawn off wild life for the pet trade, because wolves are wild and should remain that way.
I guess I don't feel it is my place to regulate the sale of wolfdogs... The very phrase does sound wrong... Rescue of wolfdogs sounds better to me :-) I dont feel that wolves or dogs are made better or more beautiful by being mixed together.

Gwenhwyfair Yup.

That about sums it up.

I mentioned the UC inaccuracies because there has been much debate about it in the wolfdog community, that it will create more draconian laws somehow...

glowingtoadfly Their view, and I am not saying this is my view, as I am not convinced that wolfdogs should be bred, is that wolfdog is a breed like any other and without good breeders the backyard, poorly bred wolfdogs will become even more the norm than they are now.

my boy diesel with all due respect glowing
responsible wolf dog breeder is an oxymoron at best
such a thing does not exist
if one was responsible they would never tamper with nature like that
