    Big Grin Husky Wolf Crosses

    Advertisements
    My boyfriend and I thought about different pets to get while he's in the navy. He was really interested in getting a husky and wolf cross pup, they run around $300 each. Any thoughts or opinions on them? I've heard mixed reviews, some people say that they get mean, some people say they're the best companions they've had. (: If you don't think they're a good dog to have, what do you think would be good? :3

    No, they arent. That is a lie. Wolf corsses are illegal in this country,a nd any good breeder will not charge $300 for a pup. You are going through a puppy mill. Please do not purchase a dog from anyone other than a reputable breeder, or go to a shelter. And do NOT get any wolf hybrids. Wolves or wolf mixes do not make good pets. Wolves are wild animals, not pets.

    Also, any wolf hybrids are not allowed in military housing so if you two were to get married one day & live in military-owned housing, that dog would not be allowed. And many apartments don't accept them either.

    In addition, IMO, getting pets with boyfriends/girlfriends (as opposed to husbands/wives) is a bad idea. What if you two break up? The pet loses in that situations as they are often left at a shelter.

    a husky anything isnt going to be $300

    Dh was a douchey and thought he was going through a reputable breeder but low and behold she was shit and even then we paid $700...pleaseeeeee becareful when choosing a breeder, I say this from experience. I actually would never go through a breeder ever again- we have two other huskys we adopted and will always adopt now.

    I didn't know that they were illegal, it wasn't my idea to get one to start with. So please don't go off on me like that. And even though we have a very stable relationship, you're saying no pets at all? I think it would be fine, since we've lived together until he left for boot camp. Also, I said I was *thinking* about it. It doesn't mean I'm going to run and goo buy one today. Thanks jellybeanerr, I think an adopted dog would be a good idea. You don't have to go through the trouble of shots and vaccinations and you're giving them a good home. (:

    I suggest getting a nice dog from the shelter, as an alternative.

    Everyone else already said everything I wanted to say about wolf-dogs.

    You may be able to find a husky-specific rescue or get one from a foster home. One of my coworkers just got a husky X greyhound mix from a foster family and it's the sweetest dog ever.

    ditto all the others-- get a yorkie or a boxer, or a better yet, go to the pound and get a mutt who needs a good home.
