Have 3 children, 1 grandchild and lots of dogs. This is my latest litter of wolf pups. My female is AKC German Shepherd and dad is the timber wolf in the picture. You can see how long his legs are when he stands up over my dog. They made 8 gorgeous pups last year and ditto this time too. Anyone wishing to have a pup locally please feel free to contact me -cell is 386-237-8402. The pups are $600 and trained by the time they are ready to go home and have had their first set of shots. I leash train them, housebreak them, basic commands such as sit, stay, come, etc. The most important being the housebreaking because they are big dogs which means big poo and pee. First things first. I do not paper train -why bother? Its like training twice, and so I just let them out with mom and they see what she does. This begins at about 3 1/2 weeks when they begin solid food. I also breed AKC Labs and usually get all 3 colors. Right now I bought myself a white male and I have a black female. I may stud out one more time because this guy is a pup still and I would like to keep a female that I have had from our female who will be retiring after this litter. We'll see -God is in charge of my life. I do the footwork and leave the results up to him/her.
