My story

Our farm is in the hilly Western NC countryside. It's a long way from from the mountains of Idaho, when my first wolfdog came into my life back in 1984. She was so amazing, and I haven't been without one since. Their intelligence, calm*, inquisitive demeanor, and ability to read people and situations was impressive. The ability to interact with my other animals was different and so much better than the AKC purebred dogs I had experienced growing up. ( loveable but scatterbrained, many health issues) Many years were spent with high-contents, even helped with USDA wolf rescue around the country. Up until recently, we worked with mustangs and rehabing horses with dangerous tendencies/ traumas/behavioral issues. We're older, slower, and trail ride now. Maybe sip some tea on the wrap-around porch. Our Mission: Breed sociable, healthy, beautiful, intelligent creatures, that an active, but more typical, person can add to their pack family. The past many decades has been spent selectively breeding for something that still looks wolf-y, but that doesn't require the special containment, feed, and responds well to modern living. Many still have bright yellow eyes. Our adults have an outdoor kennel, free run while we are outside to supervise, and come in the giant doggy-door to crash on pillows on movie night. We socialize our pups, and start leash training, housebreaking, expose them to crates, stairs, car trips, etc. Our farm has Dexter cattle, horses, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, tractors, and free-range chickens, along with cats, 2 Pomeranians, and the grandkids, grandparents. It's a busy life, LOL. What you can expect: The pups will be around 60-80 lbs for females, and 90-120 for males. They do learn VERY quickly, easy to train, BUT easy to spoil. Consistency is key. They do chew as pups, ( toys and bones work well), and love to run! Training to recall is important, as they can run 20 miles in a day. We offer training advice as desired. Most importantly, they need YOU. This breed bonds for life with their person/family pack, and don't do as well rehoming. Lifespan is 12-16 years. The parents are Embark DNA' d and are negative for 250+ items, and positive for none. We have one to two litters per year. A Deposit is required to hold a pup. We have many Arctic white pups, to grey w/ mask ( agouti). These are low-mid content, and are Arctic, Grey, white German Shepherd, Malamute, Husky mix. We have many repeat and referral clients, our pups are in 47 states and 3 countries. We LOVE it when we get pictures and updates. Yes, they howl :D Feel free to call, text, or email.

My commitments

The applicable health screenings have been performed on the Sire and Dam as recommended by the Parent Club for this breed.

I provide a Health Guarantee for the puppies I sell.

I will provide a written Bill of Sale detailing responsibilities for the buyer and the seller.

If the puppy buyer cannot keep a puppy purchased from me, I will take the Puppy back under all conditions.

I will provide the puppy buyer with information about socialization, exercise, training, feeding, immunizations, proper veterinary care, and responsible dog ownership.

I require each applicant to fill out an application to assure that my breed and dogs are the right fit for the new family.

I prefer to keep in contact with the new owner, so I can be updated about the wellbeing of the dog and see how it is developing.

I participate in regular education classes, learning how to continue to improve as a breeder.
