Differentiating Great Lakes Area Native Wild Wolves from Dogs and Wolf-Dog Hybrids

A book that will help wildlife biologists, conservation officers, forensic staff, and others evaluate animals to determine whether or not they are native Great Lakes Area wolves. Includes 15 full color plates The increase in wild wolf populations has been paralleled by an increase in captive animals that are wolf-dog mixes or are privately kept full wolves. Wildlife biologists are often consulted to identify these animals when the animals are collected after death or occasionally may be asked to verify whether a specific free-ranging animal may perhaps be a wolf or wolf mix. Unfortunately, at this time, there are few decisive DNA tests that are successful at verifying whether a specific animal is a full native wolf. Many clues can be used to discern whether an animal is a wolf or a wolf-dog mix, or if the animal appears to be a full wolf, whether the animal has been captive. Determination of the identity of a specific animal requires careful examination of the animal. If the anim

    This book is wonderful. The pictures are beautiful and the diagrams are very detailed and helpful. It truly helped me understand the markings of a true native wolf. As people move in to the wolf territory and the wolf population expands it becomes more important for us to recognize the difference between a wolf and several species of dogs that may be mistaken for wolves and the wolf-hybrids. This book is very helpful in making these distinctions.

    Beth Duman has written a concise and clear guide on the identification of wolves and wolf hybrids. While many dog trainers may not think this topic relates to teaching group classes, it is actually one of extreme importance. Wolves are genetically not domesticated. Domestication enables us to safely interact with animals, ensures us that they will housetrain and that they will be satisfied living life as a family pet. True wolf hybrids do NOT housetrain, must be exercised for many hours a day and are potentially unsafe with both adults and children. The book Fatal dog attacks by Karen Delise clearly statistically demonstrates the danger wolf hybrids pose for children.

    Dog trainers everywhere would be wise to read and internalize the info that Beth has gathered in this book. Hybrids are likely a danger to other dogs and should not be accepted into dog schools for normal group classes.

    As a canine professional, I see clients who tell me that their household pets are wolf-hybrids. In the past, I have called Beth for her assistance, and now with her book, I can use her pictures as visual guides to help me when working with clients. Her descriptions are are clear and concise and I will use this book as a working tool.
