What Is a Timber Wolf Hybrid?

A timber wolf hybrid is the offspring of any domesticated dog that is crossbred with a timber wolf. Such crossbreeds require a very skilled hand to raise and are not recommended for most owners.

Hybrid wolves, or more correctly, wolfdogs, are known to be extremely skittish around new places, people and loud noises. This makes training difficult for all but the most skilled and patient trainers. While wolfdogs behave similarly to normal, domesticated dogs when they are young, when they reach adolescence, their more wolf-like characteristics begin to appear. It is during this time that training becomes most difficult and care should be taken to ensure the wolfdog never acts out of boredom.
