    This is a classic example of overreach by the state, profiling of dogs, there is no such thing as a wolf hybrid, it’s eaither a wild animal or a dog, I hope the state learned a lesson from this fiasco.

      i the original owner agree — the lady that had cody ( god love her ) had no awarness of the laws as she had all intenions of getting him liecensed next week but if she had tried .. the laws make it so there would have been no way at all to do it with out alot of money involved and she didnt even know . but i totally disagree with the way that ken-eth corl-ton got rid of them after being told flat out they are a couple and cant be seperated and for that alone i hope its dealt with

    I once owned a 25% wolf / 75% malamute husky hybrid and I’ll say that was the best dog ever. He was extremely intelligent and eager to please once he knew who the boss was. That was the first animal I ever had that I could talk to and tell to do anything and he would, whether trained to do the task or not. He just knew. I could talk with him in a fun way and he’d “talk” back and we’d look like a couple of damned fools, but we both loved it and loved each other. 

    The only thing with huskies and wolf hybrids is that they do love to run and it is hard to keep them tied up outside. He’s break everything I’d put him on and would pull and stretch the line until it would break. Eventually I put a good sized chain on him and attached that to an eye hook. The next day I went out to let him in and he pulled the hook out of the wall it was attached to and took off. After I tracked him and got him home I had to put a huge eye hook in to replace the one he ripped out and he was fine after that but everything else I tried he’d break or figure out how to get out of.

    not that i want place listed — we arent from WALDOBORO in fact about 2 hr.s away

  • I am so happy to hear that Mia did not end up like poor Lennox in N.Ireland; euthanized for human ignorance and hubris. There seems to be NO common sense left in the world. Frankly I was kind of surprised that this ended as quickly and sanely as it did. Perhaps those in charge heard about the death threats and harrassment suffered by the Belfast, Ireland city commisioners and decided that they might, maybe, should and quickly re-think their stance.
