Description

The Wolamute is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Timber Wolf also called the Gray Wolf and the Alaskan Malamute. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Anyone owning a Wolf Hybrid should take extra time to learn the animal's natural instincts and behavior. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Zeke the Wolamute at 3 years old—"This is Zeke the great devourer. (As my 9 year old refers to him) He is the best friend a man could ask for. Like most friends he can let you down from time to time. He definitely falls into the companion compared to pet category. Anyone who asks me about owning a wolfdog I try to steer clear. I spent over a year living in the wilderness with my dog. Unless you are prepared to make this kind of commitment don't bother."

This is Laika, a Wolf / Malamute cross that is absolutely beautiful! She is a wonderful companion and although extremely willful and skittish, she is a sweet and good-humored pet.

Logan the Wolamute at 2 years old—"He's a Malamute / Timber Wolf cross, and I believe he's the most beautiful creature I've ever owned.... He's about 102 lbs. of very strong-willed dog, and sharp as a whip! He underwent thorough training at 'Alpha Paws' up north in Ontario near Barrie, which is like dog boot camp. The man that helped us to train Logan specialized in problem dogs with very strong wills. I recommend this program to anyone; your dog will undergo such change that it will astound you!

"After his training, Logan is now very protective and loving of our family. Especially of myself and my mother. He knows who's boss in the house, but is fiercely protective of us around those who seem suspicious. ^_^ Logan even saved my life about 6 months ago. I was choking on a piece of food, alone in my house...I panicked and I didn't know what to do. I eventually collapsed on the floor from exhaustion and he pounced on my stomach, causing me to gag and cough up the food. I was shocked, and grateful! He's the best dog I could ever have hoped for; I'm so glad I bought him. He's been a true blessing in my life and I love him dearly."

"Inouk has a wide and thick neck with a lot of muscle, webbed feet, double eyebrows and a coat inside his ears to protect from snow. Faithful to the human being, as long as you are the alpha male. He is very loyal and protective of me, he loves people and children. Guess it is the way I brought him up. As far as I am aware, timber wolves were brought up in the Inuit villages, to protect and share. He also has the double coat, which at this moment in January is coming off like no one’s business; I have bags of it. Wish I knew someone that could spin it. He eats cooked chicken, including the bones, which are part of his diet, plus beef and lamb. Pork and milk will upset him. To be honest he eats better than me. But he is my friend and companion. I call him Inuck, which in singular from the Inuits means real person."
