Default King chased a wolf..

About last week I was at my cabin with my parents and King, he is 9 months and 90lbs. I went walking in the bush, there is a trail there that leads to a big rock hill, I was standing up the hill looking for connection for my iPhone, as I turned around there was a huge grey wolf, maybe about 130lbs(just a guess) standing about 30 feet away, then King smelled it then turned around, as soon as he saw it, he went charging at it, barking, running fast, hackles up. The wolf took off, with it's tail tucked under, running away, I could hear it running away through the forest, then I called King back, then he came back running to me

King - 9 months, up the hill

King is quite handsome and Wolves tend to travel in packs...just saying.

I've told my story on here about Nara chasing 3 coyotes, and they turned on her and chased her down. She ran back to me for protection. She probably weighed as much as all 3 combined, but she was outnumbered and didn't expect them to turn on her. I put her on a leash and walked calmly towards the coyotes, as this was my first experience with them and I wanted to check them out. As we approached, they'd back off. As we got over the next hill, there were 8 more waiting. At that point it was time to go and leave them to tend to their territory. After that, I only heard the pack, but never again saw them all. I'd only see 1 or a pair, no more. And Nara remained on leash from that point forward, and we solidified her recall.

I'd love to see a wolf in the wild. One day I will...

That's true except for the lone wolves. The ones searching for a pack.

Eight more!!! But yeah that is what they do. Lure a dog away and then the pack pounces!

They did not get to be around forever by taking chances!

Don't think I would have ventured towards the three myself? Glad it worked out well and yes a well trained dog is the best defence!

i would definitely be suspicious of the 'lone' wolf trying to lure the dog into a trap
you need to train the dog to ignore things like this
the last thing you wanna do is listen to your dog being torn apart by a wolf pack in the brush and you cant save it

Wolves don't lure. They just hunt. Coyotes will lure. Just wanted to put that out there.

OP, I'm glad your boy came back when called. I would love to see a wolf in the wild someday. Though I pray my dogs wont chase.
