Hybrid Wolf

Lupin came to us in May 2021 at 8 weeks of age as an owner surrender along with his brother, Rogue. Lupin is a shy, timid mid to low-content wolf hybrid, he is currently the omega in the pack, although he does spar playfully with his brother quite often. Even though the brothers are not high content wolf, their brains are very wolf-like, making them very cautious and shy around people, especially with strangers – they will stay far away from groups of people they don’t know. They live with two females, Dani and Ice, that are both alpha over them, constantly keeping them in place! Lupin loves to go to our big wolf yard with his pack several times a week for a few hours each time where he gets to run, explore and play to his hearts content!


ORDER: Carnivora           
FAMILY: Canidae               
GENUS: Canis                   

The wolf is the largest species of the wild dog family. A hybrid wolf happens most of the time from human intervention. A wolf and domesticated dog are purposely bred to create a combined version of the two, mostly for the pet trade. The problem is a wolf does not “domesticate” in one breeding and this can often be very detrimental to the pups, especially once they mature. They have an acute sense of smell and hearing. They travel in packs, about 7 to 8 individuals, with one alpha male and one alpha female. They are most active at sunrise and sunset but prefer to move under the cover of darkness. They do not accept strangers into their pack easily. They are apex predators who’s job it is to keep ecosystems in order and working smoothy. If you would like further info on the wolf, you can check out, “How Wolves Change Rivers”, narrated by Dave Attenborough.
