ROAD TRIP!!

tempurafriedhappiness:

YOU GUYS, I’m so hype I can’t even. About a zillion people did a zillion amazing things to ensure that our Malinois friend in the Conyers, GA shelter is GETTING OUT and is coming to stay with me as a foster!

makeyourownfuckingluck was able to donate enough gas money for the part of the trip I couldn’t cover myself. I leave tonight and will be there when the shelter opens early tomorrow to get him. Hugeee thanks to her for that, and also to katiesham and yaranyarai for standing by willing to pull him and hold onto him if transport could be arranged, and to haleysolo for giving me some details about his temperament and behavior. Also, a Belgian/Dutch shepherd rescue contact in GA was able to get in touch with the shelter manager, and he knows that I’m coming tomorrow, so there’s no risk of driving all the way out there only to discover he’s gone.

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who shared this handsome guy’s photo and got the word out! He’ll soon be on his way to a better life and finding a forever home! <3

Can anyone in or near Conyers, GA pull this dog from the kill shelter where he is currenly held? He is at the Rockdale County Animal Care & Control and his time is limited. He is a male black Belgian Malinois. Short on funds at the moment or else I’d make the 13 hour trip to pull him myself. Please share his photo - it links to his Petfinder profile.

Here is his Petfinder listing in case the photo link doesn’t work on some layouts.

Sometimes you're really mean to some people. You could also say it kindly that it's not a wolfdog in your eyes, mabye they know it's not it but do they want it. I have a pure bred dachshund and call him wolf sometimes so stop being mean please?

Are you referring to my recent submissions? Because they’re both jokes, people kidding around, and submissions containing obvious dogs to be funny…

Humor is a difficult thing on the internet.

Whats your opinion in dog breeds who are bred to look like wolfs? Like Tamaskan, Northern Inuit and Utonagan?

I think they’re gorgeous dogs and I’d love to have one in the future, especially a Tamaskan or Northern Inuit dog. And like any other “wolfy” looking breeds, I don’t think they’re harmful to wolfdogs or contribute to misrepresentation when they’re represented correctly and not being called wolfdogs.


This is my wolf dog. She’s 93 % wolf and 8 % Pug.When i first suspected that i had not been sold a pure pug it was because of her behavior and somewhat wolfy looks. I mean.. She BITES things and she bites ME. Has to be a wolf. And she can be annoying and hyper.. So she just have to be a wolf because she can be difficult

She BITES things??? Omg, that&#8217;s unbelievable! I cannot believe they tried to sell her to you as a pure bred pug when she&#8217;s clearly a high-content wolfdog. Wow.

B.C. hunter kills Yukon family dog by accident

Owner witnessed pet dog get shot and killed in hunting mix-up

[CBC News]

A devastated Yukon family is calling for a roadside hunting ban after their pet dog was accidentally killed by a hunter who mistook it for a wolf

Eric Peterson was drinking coffee on the porch of his Atlin Road cabin last May when a shot rang out. Moments later, his six-year-old shepherd cross, Tikka, fell dead in the meadow.

Peterson pursued the shooter down the highway where an angry confrontation ensued.

The man he confronted, Daniel Bridge, said he mistook the black dog for a wolf.

"Mr. Bridge saw a wolf, and he shot one, but it turned out to be a dog," Peterson said. "All of us know we sometime take actions and go, ‘oops’ but this was a pretty heavy duty ‘oops’ and I think it’s time for preventative action."

Bridge has since left the territory and appeared by telephone in court this week facing wildlife charges for hunting out of season.

He apologized to the Peterson family, and agreed to a $1750 fine, payable to the Mae Bachur medical fund for injured animals.

Bridge is barred from hunting two years and must take hunter education training before he can be re-licensed.

Hybrid wolfdog is very protective of the new kitten. - Video

OMG OMG.

Summoning naturepunk, is this actually a wolfdog, you think? I remember that post of your’s about Jude and the wild rat; kinda dubious about interactions with a kitten.

If it is a wolfdog, it’s a very low-content one. I see a lot of dog traits - husky markings and paws, large GSD ears and dark GSD eyes, a curled tail, a dog-like gait, etc. His only wolfy traits are his cheek ruffs, but those can be a dog trait, too, depending on what else is in the mix. 

As for the behavior - this seems more like something known as ‘resource guarding’. He is ‘claiming’ the kitten as his, not because he has any manner of affection for it, but likely because it’s entertaining for him; it’s a toy.

In the 3rd GIF down, he mouths at it experimentally before picking it up with a very slight predatory shake of his head, and walks away from the camera-person, still bobbing the kitten up and down. He then puts the kitten between his paws as any dog would a chew-toy. And when the camera-person approaches him, his reaction is to move forward in a low-postured, menacing manner, completely with a lip-lick synonymous with a threat/stress display, as if he is warning, “Back up! This toy is mine!”

I could easily see this behavior escalating into a dangerous situation for the kitten, the dog’s humans, and for the dog - especially since they have dropped the “wolfdog bomb” on him.

Videos like this make me feel very uncomfortable, for a myriad of different reasons, and it’s unfortunate that so many people, who don’t know any better, misconstrue it as “cute” or “funny”.
