The Wolfdog is a domestic dog and wolf hybrid. There are three “types” of Wolfdogs, Low Content (LC), Mid Content (MC), and High Content (HC). Low content Wolfdog’s are 1-49% wolf, 50%-74% wolf is mid content, and 75%+ is high content. The higher the wolf content, the more wolf-like they will be. Wolfdog’s are smarter than their “domestic” companions and can be quite challenging and stubborn. They are self-aware and have a “what’s in for me?” attitude. But, many mid-to-low content Wolfdogs are sociable, willing to please, and generally friendly. Low content Wolfdogs are the most outgoing and friendly. They are the easiest to train and will do well with children and other dogs. Mid content Wolfdogs are still outgoing but can be a bit more fearful than low content ones. They are also a bit harder to train and will need extra socialization to help with their shyness. High content Wolfdogs are generally indistinguishable from wolves and the hardest to train and socialize as “house pets”. They are normally not recommended for first time Wolfdog (or domestic dog) owners due to their strong similarities to wolves. But, with the right family, a low to mid content Wolfdog will make a wonderful companion!< p>
