Frank: Arctic Wolf and Caucasian Shepherd mix?
Me and my friend have been talking and doing some research on dogs to see what one would suite style of living, however after looking threw the breeds and reading up on wolfdogs, i've been wondering if it would be possible to mix and arctic wolf with a caucasian sherpherd? Its just a thought i dont plan on breeding it, but out of curiosity has it been breed before if so does anyone have any pictures?

All that in consideration, like i said i was curious, i dont intend on making this hybrid, however, caucasian shepherds (from what i've read up) are dangerous, but they are very protective of their family and loyal, wouldn't that carry on even somewhat in the hybrid, or would most of the wolf traits be active? Also does anyone know what the general temperment would be?

Oh dear god. I certainly hope not, that was be EXTREMELY dangerous. Caucasian Ovtcharkas are serious working dogs that are extremely stranger aggressive; mix that with a wolf and you have a liability.

Please don't even consider it. It is possible, but please. I currently own an Ovcharka (Central Asian) and they are definitely not a beginner dog.. and are not a dog for most people considering. They are very strong willed and are not obedience training type of dogs. Picture a guard dog that attacks when threatened. Now picture an Ovcharka who is threatened that does not respond to voice commands and needs no training when it comes to fighting. These dogs are bred to protect their flocks against the wolves and wild dogs of their native lands. They are nothing to fool around with, and can be a very dangerous tool, especially if you do not have any idea what you are getting into.

NO, NO, NO, NO!!! I have colleagues who worked with too many aggression cases involving wolves, and wolf hybrids. I believe it to be not only stupid, but irresponsible to own or breed such. All these dogs/wolves/hybrids end up in special rescues sanctuaries for them if they are lucky, but most are destroyed after mauling or killing someone.

Sure it would be possible,but you would have a killing machine. That would be such a dangerous mix that it would be highly irresponsible,not to mention idiotic,to even think about breeding it.

That would be one bad ass dog. I want one!

Now who do you think would be stupid enough to breed a wolf to a dog breed that was bred to defend livestock against that very animal? Not to mention a dog breed that is NOT for first time owners and not good with strangers? Thats a lawsuit waiting to happen.
