These two pups are named Shentea and Diamond. They are in desperate need of a foster home, and if none can be found before the end of the week, they will likely face euthanasia.
Because their previous owner claimed that they were wolfdogs. They are not. They are likley German shepherd/husky mixes, and now their lives are on the line because of misrepresentation.
I’ve offered to foster these two if no other option can be found, but if you or anyone you know may be able to lend a hand, PLEASE contact me ASAP. They currently in Klamath Falls, Oregon, but I can help with transportation if need-be.
The number of times I’ve seen people with white GSDs, malamutes, and huskies being passed off as “Arctic wolves” is staggering - and frankly, rather aggravating to boot. Just because a dog has a white coat, upright ears, a long tail, and pale eyes, does not mean it’s a wolfdog.
Here are examples of true white wolfdogs of varying content for comparison:
Above is a high-content wolfdog. Note that this animal has a very narrow arrow-shaped skull, small angular eyes, lanky build, and rounded, well-furred ears. It also has dark pigmentation on its nose and around its eyes. This animal has many physical characteristics of a true white wolfdog.
Above is another high-content animal. It displays even more wolfy characteristics, including the cow-hocked stance of its back legs, pre-caudal gland on the tail, and large finger-like digits on its paws. They are not compact little ‘cat feet’ as seen on huskies.
But these are high-content animals. Low-content ones are much harder to distinguish, right?
Yes, and no. There are still many differences between a white wolfy-dog, and a real white wolfdog. The trick is to look past the coloration.
Here’s an example:
The above pup is a low/low-mid content wolfdog. Compare that to a white GSD/husky mix:
The difference should *hopefully* still be very apparent, as the physical build of the wolfdog differs greatly from that of the GSD/husky mix. He’s got well-furred rounded ears, defined cheek ruff, and almond-shaped eyes.
Here’s yet another example to drive the point home:
Can you guess which of these two has wolf content?
If you guessed the bottom pup, you are correct. Even though it has what appear to be blue eyes and a pink nose, it’s still got wolf traits that the upper pup does not, including a heavy cheek ruff, smaller eyes compared to skull size, hare feet instead of cat paws, and a longer, narrower muzzle. His lack of color is admittedly unique for a wolfdog, but it’s important to remember that phenotyping is about looking at the bigger picture, not just a collection of traits. This is especially true when it comes to lower-content animals!
Saw this on facebook. It looks like a husky to me, but there were no better pictures of it.
This is awful! From this picture alone, I’d say this dog is all husky.
^ Misrepresentation at its finest. Calling huskies and mixes only contributes to things like this. A dog like this(unless it was unsafe and extremely dangerous, which I doubt, but you never know from a picture) had no reason to be shot. The animal was killed because the officer saw it as a “dangerous wolf on the loose”. Clearly the officer is at fault in this situation but I find it less likely she would have done this to a lab or another non “wolfy” looking dog.
These are the stories I think of when people say “Oh, it doesn’t matter, why are you taking this so seriously?”. This is why.
Thank you for the submission.
