JaderBug Posted November 16, 2011 Report Share Posted November 16, 2011 My cousin recently sent me a photo of a puppy that his boss bought- a wolf x Border Collie. Thought I would think it was cool because he knows my love of Border Collies- I just cringed. Adorable puppy, very unique markings, but bottom line is WHY. I told my cousin to let his boss know that wolf mixes can be very difficult to train and that he should seek professional training help immediately if (when) problems should arise, and that puppy classes would be very beneficial (especially since the pup came home at 6 weeks ). The owner thought that being mixed with a Border Collie would make training easier, I am convinced that would probably make it worse. The Border Collie stereotype in full action. I have no idea how much experience this person has with Border Collies, wolves, wolfdogs, or dogs for that matter. For the life of me I can't understand why breeding ANYTHING to a wolf would be appealing or beneficial. What is this dog going to be like when she gets older? What kind of hurdles can the owners expect? Care to make any wagers for length of time before a rescue/shelter/animal control is contacted?? I bet she'd have a hell of a hit/grip on livestock...
