Here's a picture of me and the REAL muscle in the family! My hybrid wolf, Damon! About 2004. He was about a year and a half old then and about 115 lbs. He's about 140ish now!

He's definately the Alpha of all of our 6 dogs, none of them challenge him; but with people he's a big baby that loves petting!

He's 1/2 Timber Wolf and 1/2 Malamute (which also has wolf in that bloodline).

My Stepson bought him for us. I never asked him how much he paid.

I just know that the people he bought him from have the Wolf and Mal, and breed them to sell. He was about 8 weeks old when he bought him.

Thanks everybody! He's cool as **** to hear howl! (He doesn't bark) When he hears a siren he starts howling and all of the other dogs have now learned to howl. Even our Pit Bull and our Toy Fox Terrier...but the Terrier's howl sounds more like he's gargling! Damon's hearing is incredible! He's always the 1st one to hear a siren and start howling. Then several seconds later the other dogs hear it and start. Then several seconds later we'll hear it!

Cool dog/wolf (wog? dolf?). My dog howls at sirens, as well. I doubt he's got much wolf left in him, though.

They all have the wolf as a common ancestor...even poodles...although that's hard to believe! LOL!

Seriously though Damon has never barked as long as we've had him. You can get him 'talkin' to you by kinda' howling quiet at him and he'll howl back quiet at you like he's talking to you as long as you'll stand there doing it. People get a kick out of it.

My dog does the talking, as well.

I know they all come from wolves, that's why I said he doesn't have much left in him - but who knows, maybe he's more wolf than I realize.

Cool man, I used to own a malamute when I lived in the Mtns. His name was Bear.

I now own 2 chows- wolf descent.

That's cool that your dog is not aggressive. Growing up our neighbors had a dog that was part wolf and something else. It however was not as laid back as yours. When it would get loose we would go back inside the house. I think it liked to play more than anything but was a little aggressive while it did it. It was a HUGE dog too, very tall. It liked to jump up on you and I think that was the problem a lot of the times. After the dog jumped up on the mailman and ripped his uniform (claws), most likely unintentional, they finally got rid of it. Made playing outside a lot more enjoyable.

I'd heard that the wolf hybrids could be agressive. But we got lucky I guess with Damon. Same with our year old Pit. She's real hyper, but a big loving baby! I think a lot depends on how the owner treats the big breed as to how their aggressive nature comes out. I think most of them could be made mean if they have been raised wrong...kinda like kids!

No; we just pet him and play with him when we can, and make sure he has a big chew bone (rawhide type) to chew on. We've got a pretty big fenced in back yard so he and the 'pack' (our other dogs) have a lot of room to run and chase each other and get plenty of exercise. They do need space. He's got close to 1/2 acre.

Yeah he eats pretty much any dog food our dogs eat. We rotate brands and types regularly as they will get bored with the same stuff all the time. We use Gravy Train, Kibbles and Bits, Alpo, and Meet Tenders (their favorite).

I think we should ban Al Gore and his politician croanies and leave the **** animals alone. :moon:

I'm afraid I'm South Park ignorant by choice. I watched one very offensive episode and never watched it again. Sorry!

Does he get along with your cat? Also how loyal is he?

6 dogs? That sounds like heaven to me (and my gf too). We are currently in rental properties so we only have two (we each keep a dog at our place).
This is the closest to owning a wolf I will ever get http://www.flickr.com/photos/mercury01818/3039619094/
We rescued her in November, she is a wild dog from Kentucky, they call them Carolina Dogs or American Dingos.

Not trying to get preachy on you or anything, and you probably already know this, but be careful with your pit bull and your other dogs. They are awesome (and beautiful) dogs , but you can't forget what they were bred for, and that was dog fighting. A well socialized and well trained pit bull will play just fine with other dogs 99% of the time, but make sure you are there to step in if things ever escalate. http://www.badrap.org/rescue/multidogs.cfm A good resource for owning a pit.

When we do bring him in the cat usually heads for the basement. But he's been in the same room briefly a few times and never went after her. The Pit and the cat have made a game out of plying chase and the cat will actually tease the Pit into chasing her to her cat door to the basement. I hope it stays a game!

Damon loves petting and is loyal to whoever braves up and will give him attention. He's never acted agressive to anyone.

Susie, the Pit/Rot mix (we believe); is loyal/friendly to only who's around and feeding her. She's real cautious of anyone else.

Wow! Scout does look like a Dingo! He's got friendly eyes.

Thanks for the link on the pits and the advice. I put it in my favorites to show my wife tomarrow. You can never be too informed!

When you take him for a walk, he's one he** of a conversation piece! He gets a lot of attention. When we take him to the vets office for vacs. he's definately the show stealer! When someone ask what breed is he and I say he's a Hybrid Wolf, we get all kinds of different reactions. It's kinda' cool!

No problem. I've been looking into adopting a pit for awhile, and I've come across a lot of great resources.

PS
You should put a pic of the whole 6 dog family in the thread.
