Confessions of a Hopeless Romantic
When I look at a so called 'wolf dog', i don't see anything that looks wolfish. Do you think people call them 'wolf dogs' just to make it sound cool, or just because they aren't educated on what a wolf really looks like?

non-wolfdogs:

A lot of “fake” wolfdogs actually look very “wolfy”! To a lot of people who don’t know what to look for, these animals may as well be wolfdogs.

Some VERY wolfy-looking DOGS I’ve encountered…

A lot of people buy their “wolfdogs” from breeders, and because they don’t know what a wolfdog *should* look like, they naturally assume their breeder isn’t scamming them and that they’re actually buying an animal that is mixed with wolf.

There are about 1 million people in America that claim to own a wolfdog. 75% of those people have an animal with zero wolf blood. It is because of wolfdog misrepresentation that there is so much confusion as to how a true wolfdog actually looks like. Are you among the 75% with a misrepresented animal? Check here.

What does a real wolf dog look like? I feel like I've only ever seen husky mixes and never the real thing

Here are some actual verified wolfdogs with explanations of their content: 

image

Above is Jeager, who lives at Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. He is a mid high-content wolfdog who was purchased in Alaska by folks who were assured that he’d be “just like a dog” by the breeder - obviously, this was not the case, and Jeager was bounced around to a few different homes before finally ending up in the sanctuary. Note his narrow chest, fully-furred ears, small eyes, and downward sloping tail. He looks almost exactly like a pure wolf.

image

Lakota is an upper mid-content wolfdog pulled from a high-kill shelter, where employees refused to care for her because they thought she was a wild wolf. She was 40 pounds and covered in her own filth when initially rescued. Note that she looks very wolf-like aside from the broad chest and legs, and dramatically-pronounced malamute-eque facial markings. 

image

Rain is a lower mid-content wolfdog who was purchased from a breeder by a young woman who thought that having a wolfdog would be a good idea. She kept the animal for about a year before contacting a rescue. Note the snow nose (pink in the middle), large eyes, and broader muzzle. She has many characteristics of a dog like a husky or malamute. 

image

Katrina is a very low-content wolfdog who was rescued from a shelter, where she’d been adopted out before, but was promptly returned. The shelter kept her in a 10X10 holding cell for two years, unwilling to adopt her out again due to her heritage. She was transferred to the Sanctuary in 2009. Note Katrina’s huge pointed ears, thick legs, broad chest, and dog markings. She is mostly German shepherd and a bit of malamute with just a touch of wolf. 

Hope this helps!

like it’s not “whoops I’m PREGNANT AGAIN tee hee time for an abortion!!” 

nobody fuckin does that. nobody

it’s more along the lines of

do you want an abortion or do you want to die

do you want an abortion or do you want to watch your baby die after a week

do you want an abortion or do you want your life to fall apart around you because of a child you are either unable or unfit to support

do you want to give up a fetus or a living, breathing baby
