This is my wolf muse, Dhyren, at 3 months. His coat is still soft at this age. His coat as well as his facial markings will change completely as he reaches adulthood. A wonderful little devil.

This post is for Hanneke especially. I wanted her to have a taste of the wolf. Dhyren is a wolf hybrid having all the wolfie behavior traits of a full wolf. In fact, his owner, Carolyn, says that there is almost no dog in him. It has been my pleasure watching him grow. He has a wonderful, knowledgeable and patient owner who took the time to understand wolf behavior and raise Dhyren to fit into human/dog society. There is also a picture of Montana. She is out of the same parents, but a litter one year behind Dhyren. She has had the same good fortune to have been chosen by a wonderful owner. Unfortunately, wolf hybrids are not usually this lucky and do not grow to be wonderful adults. Most people just love the idea of owning a wolf and have no idea what the responsibility will be.

DHYREN about 6 months

DHYREN teenage wolf in training

DHYREN winter 2011 growing up and very wolfie. Wouldn't want to meet a creature that looks like this in a dark alley. He is very sweet.

DHYREN winter 2011 As a pup his coat was so soft. It is now very corse. And the markings have changed.


MONTANA she was about one year and very wary of people. She is very calm now....a few years later.

This is my friend Carolyn’s wolf-dog Dhyren. This first photo was taken when he was a baby. He had just gotten wet in the lake. So sweet natured and soft fur. So cute it made you want to bite him.

This is Dhyren as a maturing wolf-dog. All legs, smart, very wolfy, very comfortable with people and other animals. His mom is a great owner. These creatures should not be kept by anyone who is not committed to raising them to fit into our domestic world. Even with a bit of dog bred in, they have very strong wolf tendencies. Carolyn takes care to understand his behavior and train him accordingly. It’s her passion.

This is Dhyren as a young adult this winter. As you can see, his markings have changed. He is now bigger than Carolyn’s 150lb rottweiller, Hiro…..at least in height. Now that’s BIG!  Dhyren is a timber wolf and has a couple percentage points of dog in him. Carolyn never ceases to be amazed by him.
