Here is a shot of my new pups. They're pretty wild, but I guess they might not qualify as being actual "wildlife".

Nonsense. The brutality of nature is being played out right before our eyes. Survival of the fittest at work - and this image shows it off in all its cruel reality!

Enough of this gurly-man refusal to show nature with it's red claw exposed. Thank you!!!

I thought they were Canis familiaris. What species are you talking about? :G

And it's a horrible spectacle. Why you would actually want to OWN one of these brutish creatures is of course another story.

The breed has a high predator gene...but it not surprising, given its lines.

They don't back down...which can be both a good and bad thing.

Personally, I love to own one...however, when it comes to a choice of "feed me or feed a dog", I am gonna go with me!

Those canines will eat a LOT!

Thanks for the comments, guys! They do love to fight/wrestle with each other, but they're only nine weeks old, so they are still very playful. When they are not fighting, they are the complete opposite (see attached pic).

Since these are clearly wild animals, don't you think it's wise to keep them in a cage or a zoo or something? Just to keep them from ripping your neighbors, not to mention yourself, limb from limb?

These creatures after all are near relatives of Canis Lupus!

Here's a picture of one that I sold to a zoo, and as this image shows, he was on his way to make me his first kill!

Uh-huh. Wild sort of. I could show a picture of what a hybrid of those get into when they get out of the fence. Pretty pups.



Dave, good thing you sold that "killer" to a zoo....I have seen what those Pyrennes do to various creatures on ranches that they don't think belong there. Lucky you:-)

Bet you had a treat in your pocket...didn't you?
