Kitai looking out the cave. Owned by @drifter_arabel_kitai.
I'd like to offer a piece of advice that is steaming up from a conversation I had with someone a few nights ago. If you are looking into wolfdog ownership, specially higher content ones, don't expect to find an animal that looks like a wolf but behaves like a dog. It is common for wolfdogs to be skittish, afraid of new surroundings, timid towards new people, hard headed, stubborn, destructive, etc. Some of these behaviors can be curved with constant work and socialization. Different breeders make different claims of properly socializing the pups. Take that with a grain of salt. Even if a breeder socializes a pup for a few weeks or with a few different people, the change to a new home, new people, surroundings , fear periods and maturity will affect how the pup eventually behaves. I want to point this out because during my conversation with this person I couldn't help but think that they were looking for a pup that was fully socialized, that would be leashed trained, friendly with strangers etc. A good breeder will create a good foundation to build upon but if someone gets a pup from a breeder that didn't socialize, then it's up to the new owner to be prepared with the knowledge, time and patience to work with the new pup and accept the possibility that the pup will not be the most social. Unfortunately for one pup this was not the case. For a couple of reasons this pup is no longer with its first owner. They are now in search of yet another even higher content puppy. I couldn't help but think that since that pup didn't meet their expectations it was better to look for a more social pup than to keep working with the first. 😕 #wolfdog #wolfdogsofinstagram #wolfhybrid #dogslife #hikingwithdogs #worldofwolves #picoftheday #instadogs #petsofinstagram #lowcontentwolfdog #hikingdogsofinstagram #instawolf #puppy #realwolfdog #caves #wolfpup #instapic #wolvesofinstagram #wolves #lupo #instadogs #dogportrait #lobos #sunset #wolfpup #realwolfdogs #dogsofinstagram #petphotography #dogs #wolfdogs #griffithpark #keepingitreal
