|I would be happy if Dogster simply stopped calling wolf dogs "Part Feral" because that's totally incorrect. "Feral" is a domestic animal that has reverted to being wild, like mustangs and feral cats. They're descended from domestics that escaped. Wolves are NOT feral, they are wild animals, and have never been domesticated. Feral and Wild are NOT the same. I don't know why it can't simply say "part wolf" because when you're setting up a profile, it asks if your dog is part wolf or coyote, but if you check it, it does the stupid "part feral" thing.
BTW, Neeko, what did they tell you at wolfdogforums? Do they think Neeko is a wolf-dog, or just a nordic breed/GSD mix?
And Halo, Tamaskans ARE wolfdogs- there has been a long campaign by the breed founders to suppress that, but DID use real (high content!) wolves and then falsified pedigrees to cover it. The whole "breed" is a mix of wolfdogs, Siberian Huskies, mixed breed racing sled dogs, and Czech Vclak (wolfdog). Their motto "Wolfdog without the wolf" is a patent lie. Read this for more info:
