Wolf animals are very strong animals that can be true and loyal friends of man, like dogs. However, only a person with a very strong character, a born leader and at the same time an experienced breeder can earn the love of this unusual pet.
Wolf cattle are not a standard breed of dogs, but a very rare hybrid of a wolf and a German shepherd. According to external data, wolfish are more like wolves than like dogs. These are large, hardy animals with developed muscles and thick, fluffy hair. The color may be gray, black with stains or off-white.
Despite the striking external resemblance to wolves, wolves are not aggressive, perfectly amenable to training and have a stable psyche.
Due to the specific nature and approach to upbringing, wolf dogs do not start as pets, however they are actively used for serving in the police, army, customs, for guarding borders (wolves protect the Chinese and Mongolian borders of Russia), etc.
Wolf dogs are incredibly in demand as service dogs, aided by the unique qualities of these animals. Compared with dogs of different breeds, wolf catcher has a much higher intellect and developed scent, besides, they are stronger and more enduring. For example, wolf hybrids always lead in the general course of dog training: when, during classes in a confined space, animals are given the task of finding a person, dogs spend about 6 minutes on the search, while the wolfmen are only 20 seconds away. In addition, the wolf nose scent is 5 times greater than the dog scent: they can take a trail through the air even after several days and are often used in the medical field as diagnosticians who recognize cancer patients by the smell of blood. These are unique qualities that are not characteristic of any dog breed.
Since wolfbears are as close as possible to their wild ancestors, hereditary diseases are almost not characteristic of them. These are strong, hardy animals, the life expectancy of which, when properly maintained, reaches 30 years. A strong body and good health are among the most important characteristics of the breed for which hybrids were bred.
Attempts to cross dogs and wolves have never been uncommon, but the vast majority of such experiments have not yielded positive results. As a rule, the offspring of wolves and dogs either did not survive at all, or had innate physical anomalies, and was also characterized by an unstable psyche and, consequently, uncontrollable behavior, which did not allow the use of animals for working with humans. The fact is that wolves are genetically inherent fear of people and a manifestation of aggression towards a person in case of danger, and these characteristics were passed on to offspring. It was possible to get a successful hybrid of a wolf and a dog only if fear and aggression towards a person were not inherently built into a particular wolf, i.e. the wolf should have a behavioral deviation. And once such a wolf was found. At the age of 2 weeks, Naida, that was the name of a wolf, came to the hunter who raised her and raised her. From an early age and throughout her life, the she-wolf showed exceptional kindness, gullibility and love for people. Such qualities served as a weighty foundation for a new attempt at crossing a wolf and a dog – the experiment was carried out by the Perm Institute of Internal Troops under the guidance of Professor V. Kasimov – and this time turned out to be more than successful. The father of the first wolf-dogs was a black dog of the German shepherd named Baron, and later, Naida and already obtained hybrids were used to breed new offspring with 75% of wolf blood.
An incredible wolf, who showed love to people, gave birth to three generations of strong, healthy and talented wolffoats with a stable psyche, an excellent ability to train and innate goodwill towards man. As a result of the work of the institute, 46 wolves were obtained, which subsequently proved to be excellent service dogs.
Wolfhounds, like wolves, do not bark, but howl.
Due to the resemblance to wolves, wolves are real cinema stars. They are often filmed in the role of wolves, the ave. Film by Pavel Lugin “Wolves”.
