I live on a small horse ranch in southern California with my husband, three Peruvian Horses, two macaws, a female German Shepherd Dog, Jetta, and a male low-mid content wolf dog, Sundance. Sundance is now 4 months old and is very active, sweet-tempered, and is very quick to learn, but has displayed a fear of strangers. He is not aggressive by any means. He has a fairly strong prey-drive having caught...and ate...a gopher and killed a kangaroo rat just this week.
He has very long legs, with large paws. Carries his head low when walking. His middle toes are longer than his outer toes. He is narrow-chested and his legs splay outward. He has no stop, and his eyes are a dark amber. Just to give you a description of my little guy. (I read some of your lessons)
I have no other problems with Sundance. He is sweet, and gentle, loving and very bright, but fearful. Jetta is helping him with his confidence, and we are working with our trainer who owns and trains wolves and wolf dogs for the movies. As he says, Sundance will most likely never warm-up to strangers, but he'll be a great family dog.
I am here to learn about wolfdogs. I'm so glad I found this site.
