Are those the wolfy looking dogs?

Congrats!
Yuppers! Thanks :D.

hope you will keep us updated. what made you decide on this new breed?
I really liked that all of the breeding stock was health and temperament tested, and with excellent hip scores and longevity. I also like that the breeder really encourages buyers to put titles on their dogs because she wants to know what the offspring are capable of so she can adjust breeding's. She even goes so far as to give $50 per title.

I also think it's a good idea to have a wolfy looking breed that is just a dog. Too many people get a wolf or a wolfdog purely for the looks, they aren't at all interested in the behavior, and then they end up dumping it when it acts too much like a wolf. I think having a breed around that looks like a wolf but acts like a dog will fill that void for people who want a wolfy looking animal but can't(or shouldn't) care for a wolfy acting animal. That means less wolfdogs getting dumped, and less wolves being captured in the wild to use for breeding :).

I look forward to hearing about your new puppy and seeing pictures. I will be watching closely! ;)

I love the list, what a great resource :)

I love that my next dog's name isn't on it so that's a good sign ;):D

Agree. Done. Do you think this is the right forum for this or would it be better in one of the puppy forums?

I am unreasonably happy that my girl's name is not on any of these lists - I was going for unique.

However, I also don't share it on forums because it actually DOES appear to be unique. I've never heard of another dog with the name, and I searched this site for all of the names on my short lists to find out if anyone mentioned using them and nothing came up for the name I ended up giving her.

Love all these names! Hope more folks will share!

When I was a kid (my parents love animals as much as I do) we had a houseful of rescues and ended up going with an alcohol theme. haha. visitors and friends looked at my parents like they were a couple lushes... they were Whiskey, Corona, Budweiser(Bud)...

When I was a baby my parents had a dog named Chewie (Chewbacca) which was especially bad considering they then named my older brother Luke, and me Leia. No. I'm not kidding....
