  1. There’s lots of wolf hybrids. There was a breeder in Willits that breeds wolf/Husky even though they are not suppose to. They make a lot of money from it.

  2. If it hasn’t harmed anyone or any livestock then what is the issue. They are very shy and no more what to see us as we them.

  3. I dont understand what the hype is about it being a wolf hybrid. I know several people that have wolfe hybrids and they are just like any other pet dog.

  4. I had 2 wolf/Akita hybrids in 1980’s in Cazadero/Sebastopol. 2 of the most incredible frinds I’ve ever had; I’m really tired of stupid humans being afraid of them

  5. I had a wonderful wolf hybrid that I rescued in new Mexico and he lived with me for 10 years here in California. Everyone who met Oscar loved him. He died at 15 years old. I do miss him…he was the best
