Random Coyote : I had a coyote-Samoyed mix, long ago. Beautiful dog and easily the smartest dog I had ever encountered. She was super mellow and almost never barked. However, she had the "wolf look" and the angled-out canines, so people were wary of her at first. But she was so lovey that the wariness didn't last. Big, fluffy, waggety tail-- gods, I miss that dog. She died around 2009 or so.

josh lee : and ppl dont realize that the dog breed with the most bites on record is the infamous chihuahua...

Frank Black : Getting a wolf-dog is such a bad idea for a multitude of reasons. The vast majority will be purchased by someone without the slightest idea of what they are getting themselves into and the animal ends up getting put down. If you really love wolves, go to a zoo or go work at a rescue facility. A "wolf" is NOT a "dog". Please put the animal's well being ahead of your fantasies.

Tiisiphone : I didn't knew that German shepherds had 10% wof DNA. I learned something today!

icic5 : what about the samoyed, I was interested

Jean Wang : my alaskan mal was the most loving, gentle-giant, patience, and affectionate dog i've ever had. he was so smart and responsive to us. he's never been aggressive as he's a lover. he's also very disciplined and never touches his food without our permission -with the right training it's not difficult! they're such beautiful animals, will be getting another one! i've also seen malamute/timberwolf mix that was extremely tamed, loyal and calm and was my mal's friend. timberwolf were known to be very dangerous and protective.

ƁυввƖє Mαgιc : My mom had a Husky when I was just a baby and he was so protective of me and never left my side whenever I was outside when I was 3-8 years old. He always somehow broke the chain my mom had him on and always went miles away from the house, my mom and I would have to drive around to search for him and whenever we found him my mom would say "Wanna go for a walk Hawk?" and he'd jump right into the back seat with me (He was such a goof ball and fell for that line all the time and ended up howling when my mom hooked him back up to his chain and always gave my mom a hurt expression for tricking him)

Emma Lee : Please don't get Wolf Dogs. They do need homes, in the rare instance that they get created without the influence of human breeding (because they SHOULD NOT be purposely bred,) but that's why there are wolf dog sanctuaries.

Amethyst Barr : I own a wolf/white shepherd cross, and he is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever had the pleasure of having in my pack <3

bububububak : So the UK is fine with somebody owning a borderline wild animal, a dog that kills other dogs is fine as well, but anything resembling a pitbull will get gassed as soon as it's discovered to exist on the island...

Alex Moss : I had a siberian husky but she based away from a musle disease she loved all dogs and she won't bark and she was truly the best dog in the world r.i.p skye

RainyWolf : OMG! The facts about Malamutes are so not true unless I'm a special kind of person who is very good with Malamutes (I'm biologist and I've trained dogs when I was studying at the university but you don't have to be a special person to raise a Malamute. You need to choose a breed which is compatible with your lifestyle and personality and know at least something about that breed). They are not aggressive at all, although they can be dominant. Agression is a natural response of every dog which is dominant or afraid of something. Dogs always give you signs, always! (Malamutes and huskies do too), unless they were previously abused or they natural reactions are not usual due to the disease or brain disfunction. The fact that you can't always read them properly is the problem! You need to bond with your dog to be able to do that which takes some time. With commands you can do anything with a Malamute because they are highly inteligent! That are bored very easily (It's a common problem of almost all breeds which genetic material has not been modified that much from one of a wolf) so don't expect them to do the same tricks many times all over again and if they don't think you are their alpha they may not do the command. The last Malamute I got memorized my commands on second try, which was better than Labladors, German Shepherds or even some Border Collies I've trained previously. You can't train every dog in the same manner and expect them to respond in the same way. Dogs are like children (3-4-year olds maybe) - You need to use a different approach for every dog. The best way to train them properly is to start very early and use they natural instincts and desires eg: Malamutes are sled dogs and you can't expect a Malamute to walk next to your leg obediently - It's not in their nature. It's just like I will never run a marathon as I hate long-distance running. It's more wisely to let a Malamute walk in the front with you giving him commands from the back - command to stop, turn left, right, speed up, run, slow down etc. It works but you need to be their alpha! They are also excellent with children if they got used to them at early age. My malamute can do amazing things with disabled people or eldery although he was never trained to do so. They really love people and they are very gentle - this one is true. The last malamute I've trained reacted very positively to compliments or toy balls and less positively to food. Malamutes were actually raised by Inuits and the agressive ones were never breed so they less agressive than huskies. Also, Malamutes served during II World War, rescuing wounded soldiers and carrying the equipment for the troops.

Shoulders of Giants : Non-human animals... You don't *own* them, you *care* for them. You're not their *owner,* you're their *carer.*

NOYBeezwax : Love how the doggo kept licking her.

yo lo : Too much work. I'm just going to get a pet snail

Jose Cota : i have a germen sheperd Wolfdog i dont know what kind of wolf she is bred with but she is amazing with people as long as she senses that I'm normal but the moment I feel nerves she gets super defensive and she does not like other dogs around me or the house especially big dogs she has gotten into fights with my neighbors pitbull alot but that's because it's escapes from his house and comes to me home and barks at my dog so my dog jumps over the fence and beats his ass but never goes for the kill but with cats now that's difrent she has killed two cats and she gets very jealous if I touch an other animal super possessive dog but loves my family always protects and plays with my little brother and cousins I love her

BlueWise NinjaOwl : hahahahahahahahaha @7:46 As soon as you said they have never been bred to respond to people he looked right at you as if to say "mummy shush" I will tell you a little secret about these dogs! To train a Malamute you have to treat them like a cat and get them to think what your asking is what they want to do. You can only do this with reward based training. I got a Siberian trained to recall for an owner with treats stuffed in a sock tied to a piece of rope in a field. Before that the Siberian would never recall. Only problem now is when ever he is called he expects a treat. Like spaniels when they are sniffing the ground they go deaf. Bit like humans when they are reading a good book or watching a good youtube vid haha

Ϯιɴɣ Ϯιɴɣ : Just like my Alaska malamute, he doesn't care about pleasing me but he is very friendly toward human and dog, and he goes everywhere I go including the bathroom

Suzette Smith : Some of the best dogs I've ever been around or owned have been German Shepherds. I like the big protective but loving and pleasing personality.

Danny Snarski : Hey. Don't get or support the "Wolf-Dog" mentality. It is a human motivation to feel powerful through these creatures, It is only frustrating to the animal that truly does'n;t know what it is or where it belongs. Go to the pound, adopt a big breed mix, lead, train and love it to death, but don't blend species. Not fair to the animal.

ßildØva Dova : just get a Tamaskan, I am lucky to have one and he is the best thing ive ever done, i say that cause as a puppy ( 14 weeks old) he woke me up and sat next to me till i tested and got my blood sugar back up and he has this more than once with me and my mother . his name is Achilles and i think there are a few videos of him on youtube. don't buy a wolf dog mix, unless you just want problems imo

Chad Alderman : Tmaskan , looks like a wolf, acts like a lab

A.REX Burnley FAN Boy : I think the best dog in the world is a boxer, Rottweiler and German Shepard

Hashiyan : I have a husky Laika/Czech wolf dog. Great hunter

Chainsaw Kitten : I can't understand why anyone would encourage people to get this breed, knowing that it is often a death sentence for the animal. We have a local wolf dog rescue, and the guy who runs it says he is overwhelmed with requests from people trying to get rid of theirs. There just aren't enough rescues to keep up with the breeders pumping these dogs out. Really sad.

Deanna Harby : There is no reason to mix a dog and a wolf. Adopt a dog from a shelter---save a life. Breeding these for looks , and owning one for any reason is totally wrong.

Ellie Eames : What about akita’s?

xoxojasmine04 : I'm not sure if I lucked out with my malamute, but she is the most loving and needy dog I've ever had. She always wants to be around me. she'll follow me around the house and sleep on the floor right next to me at night. She'll even want to sit on my lap while I'm on the couch even tho she's 100+lbs. I've only seen her be aggressive with food once with my other dog, just because we were dumb enough to throw a steak right between them. I personally would highly recommend getting a malamute. They have a lot of energy but they're so smart and have the most loving personality.

Madison Worstell : Our family had a short blonde German Shepherd named Fletcher for about 15-16 years. He was neutered when he was young, so he wasn't the most playful dog. He mostly laid down in the house and enjoyed a good pet. Even so he was a really good dog. I can agree with the protective bit, we have coyotes where we live, and they were scared of him. He may have been shorter than a typical Shepherd, but he was still bigger than them. He also barked at anyone that came over, even if they had been over before. Luckily he'd go back to being calm after a few minutes or so and just enjoy being pet. He really sweet dog and I miss him a lot.

Smartassdroid : Working at a shelter, the biggest issue I saw were young women buying Huskies and Malamutes with no real dog experience. They usually work all day and keep the dog in an apartment or small backyard. So the dogs become untrainable, aggressive and end up becoming seized by Rangers for attacking other dogs or people. Unless you are willing to run at least 5km a day, dont get a sled dog.

George Ramos : That wolf is majestic

Camilla _11 : siberian husky for life!

A M A : Totally right about malamutes... Beautiful dogs and friendly to humans, but they can attack other dogs out of nowhere, which happened to me once.

Ryan :D : There are two wolfdog pups at a pound near me. One is white and one is black. They are quite sweet so I ended up adopting them, I named them Echo and Avalanche

Marrowbones : In the mid-70s I knew a guy who owned an Alaskan wolf in Placerville, CA. He and his wife had done it right and raised him from a pup, sleeping with him in their bed, etc. They had a German Shepherd as a companion animal. One day, the wolf decided to go on a picnic adventure. He chewed through the 4X4 that he was tied to and then loosed the German Shepherd. They went down the hill to the local Safeway store, went in and got straight to the meat department where they selected a nice cut each, carried them outside while people just watched, too scared to intervene. Once outside, they ate their lunch and then went back up the hill and waited for their owners to come home. No kidding.

Olipotatoe ShadowCadet : I have a Germán shepard/Husky mix:)

AngoraHM 970 : Where do you think I can go about getting a Wolfdog, and how can I tell it is legit? Or can I not tell without DNA tests?

Caz Thompson : I have a red and white malamute nanook and he has unpredictable personality towards strangers and sometimes other dogs his so amazing with kids they are normally a bit scared of him coz his size he used to drag me across the road if he saw a child on the other side he is extremely stubborn to his the best dog in the world

AlphaWølfe : I LOVE WOLVES!!!!!!!!! Wolves are my life!!!!!!! Next year my parents are taking me to Pennsylvania to go to a wolf sanctuary! I'm so exited!!!

Dagmar Heinz : leave the wolf alone ...most ppl. can not even handle a wiener dog.

Stella the Husky : I absolutely disagree with this video it is dumb you could have a good husky I should know

Katherine : Loved learning more about wolfdogs. Makes me miss my German shepherds- had one male who was a rescue (he was quite calm and weighed 120 lbs! Beautiful dark mask, when we would take him out, it wasn't uncommon for complete strangers to ask to take his picture). My female looked more wolf-like than him, and her personality much more so too. She was completely alpha female, incredibly sweet, incredibly protective- she would never back down from a threat. She actually saved me and the male from another dog one day while walking through the woods in my area. Thankfully they were both very well trained. The female was definitely more difficult to train though.

Michelle khiangte : a husky

Kylie West : I have a quarter wolf Siberian husky and she is the sweetest dog I’ve ever had, she loves people, and is great for children! I agree with most of the information with the Siberian husky/ wolf

Hey Stopthat : Now if we can breed NEWFOUNDLAND dogs to look like small bears😍😍😍

lisa7525 : A friend of mine owns a Czechoslovakian WolfDog female who has a very good temperament and has developed a strong bond with his Bloodhound mix. If you have experience with dogs, they might be a good pet. Definitely not for the amateur though.

Coconut Coconut : German shepherd is the best

Frida Nyberg : I've seen wolves crossed with labradors, with poodles, with collies... I just wonder why no one is making wolfdogs out of Belgian shepherds. German shepherds are yappy, neurotic dogs with flabby faces and batlike ears, the sled dogs are still very wild and obviously don't bring much domestication to a wolfdog, but the Belgian malinois and tervueren are beautiful, wolf-looking dogs, with better temperaments than the GSD, and with much better looks and health. *Why are we not funding this?*

Robert Vandergriff : when I was about around five years old my parents bought a F1 wolfdog. 50% grey wolf, 25% German Shepherd, and 25% great Dane. it had strong mother/babysitter instinct and she never left my side. If I wonder too far from the house she either block me off or guide to my parents by her mouth​ leaving no marks. Sometimes go out hunting for food when I was inside if we don't buy dog food. Only reason I know much is because my memory and my parents talking about her. Best pet I ever had.

Danielle Fisher : I have a 5 year old German Shepard lab mix named Buddy. He is kind, Loyal and, obeys commands. He sometimes acts like a big puppy who wants to lay in your lap and be petted. He is very sweet, adorable and follows my Mom around the house to be protective. We got him from the humane society a little over a year ago.
