Wolfhound (wolf dog)

Volkosob is not an official name for a not ordinary dog ​​breed. Not quite official, because this breed, strictly speaking, has still not been recognized in any international organization, or even in the Russian Federation of Dogs. Why is this breed so unusual?

Even from the name it’s clear that a wolfhound is a mixture of a dog and a wolf. That is, it is not that once the ancestors in the form of wolves and German shepherds mated together, and to this day the resulting dogs have mated with each other. Not. In fact, each new individual, ideally, should come from mating between a dog and a wolf, although there are individuals that even in the 3rd generation showed superiority in the main properties (scent, mind, endurance, etc.) over ordinary dogs.

Accordingly, you can imagine what qualities a purebred wolf-dog carries in the first generation. In fact, Continue reading

Alaskan Malamute

Alaskan Malamute is a very strong, intelligent and ancient native dog that is used to survive in the harsh conditions of Alaska, at extremely low temperatures and minimal food. The history of the breed is inextricably linked with the ancient peoples inhabiting Siberia. Several thousand years ago, these dogs made the transition along with the tribes that migrated from Siberia to Alaska, and then settled in a new place.

Today we know the name of only one of the tribes – the Mahlemut. The tribe itself is now extremely small, if at all, but the ancient people preserved their memory thanks to this amazing breed of dogs that has survived to this day. The Makhlemuts, after a long journey, settled in the north-eastern part of the Seward Peninsula – this area is considered to be the birthplace of Alaskan Malamutes. Continue reading

Akita Inu

Dog Japanese Akita Inu is a legendary pet of Japan, known to locals since ancient times. Do not confuse Japanese Akita and American – they are different dogs. Japanese Akita Inu originated in northern Japan in Akita Province – that is how dogs got their name. It is not known for certain exactly when these animals formed as a breed, however, the first written evidence dates back to the early 17th century. In those days, Akita Inu was used to protect the imperial family.

In addition, members of the imperial family loved hunting small and large game with these dogs – this is hard to believe, but they even went to the bear with them. This very clearly characterizes the personality of the animal, because Akita has a bold, and at the same time good-natured character. To understand the kindness of these dogs, a vivid example can be given – in the London zoo the baby Akita Inu was once used as a nanny-older brother for a tiger cub. And the dog did an excellent job of this task. Continue reading
