Amazing beauty *-* She is like a wolfdog top-model .D I like her wolflike side, she looks like a graceful little shewolf ^-^ Her proportions are perfect for drawing studies/ anatomy and pose references, it's very rare beauty.)
Thank you that have acquainted us with her.)) And for your amazing photos ^-^ <3
Thank you so much for this gallery. I am learning how to draw and I must say that just looking at these gorgeous photos inspire me! These are gorgeous animals. Their eyes look like the command respect and have seen much. They just look so wise and gorgeous. I wish they were bred in the US. You make me want one. The scenery you take photos in also inspires art. Thank you for having so many awesome photos that I can use to learn how wolf anatomy works. You have truly amazing dogs that are captured in your awesome photography!
Hello there, I am happy to read comments like this. It gives me energy for more work:] Actually, Czechoslovakian Wolfdogs are being bred in the US nowadays too. You can also import one, Raksha's daughter lives in Virginia, and her brother in Denver. Good job on the picture!
Thank you so much! I was just in Denver! I should have looked into it. Virginia isn't terribly far from Vermont.... I mean relative to across the ocean anyway. I didn't know they were being bred here. I really want to look into it. I'm hoping I can get a dog at my new place. We have plenty of space and I've love to have a companion on my runs.
Do you happen to know if they like to pull? I'm into skijoring (similar to dog sledding, but instead the dog is pulling you on Nordic skis).
They like running, agility, coursing, mantrailing, dogtrekking, they like anything to do with their owners, can be versatile, but won't probably excel at any of the usual dog sports. I guess if you train your dog for it and know how to motivate him, then you can be quite successful at any dog sport, even sledding, skijoring, but wolfdogs will not work as hard as the classic sledding breeds, who are willing to pull until their legs give out. Wolfdogs always remember that after this fun with their owner is done, they still need to keep their energy for survival I know of a few wolfdogs whose owners do skijoring with them, and we taught Raksha to pull as well, but you can see it makes little sense to her, she will pull about half of the trip under my overjoyed urging and encouragement, and then the other half I pull her, because she wants to go elsewhere. Most people train their wolfdogs to pull for food: "You get a whole chicken at the finish line!" or some wolfdogs can catch the enthusiasm from real sleddogs in their pack, like Marley's dad Shadow.
