I'm on my way to the area this weekend! I'm actually going to Maryville TN, to visit this Shiloh Shepherd kennel: http://www.dayspringdogs.com/Timber.html

One of these very special rare breed will find his/her way into our home, probably next year. Everything I have read about these absolutely incredible animals has made me fall in love with them. And - there are a lot of 'fakes' out there, folks who are just breeding 'giant' german shepherds, and long-hair german shepherds. The dogs from the above kennel, and others like it, follow the breed founder's strict guidelines in terms of breeding for size, temperament, and brains!

Hope you enjoy the pictures - watch out, the puppy pics are irresistable!

Well, wolves and wolf-dogs are a bit of a handful - but check out the Shilohs! If you're like me, you'll fall in love!

I used to raise wolves and the wolf/dog mixes many years ago. Never bred any other dog breed to them outside of a Malamute and an occasional Siberian Husky. Using other breeds is not a good idea at all. They have personalities/temperments totally different from regular dogs and the lucky people that are going to give them a home (for life) need to learn and truly understand this. If you are ever lucky enough to bond with one of these wonderfully fantastic animals, you will know what I mean. I will try to find photos of some of the ones I was truly blessed to have known, but I think most photos were lost when we moved here 11 years ago. :'(

"Domestic" breeding of wolves or cross breeding is a bad thing, IMHO. The place I check on is www.wolf.org which is the site for the International Wolf Center in Ely, MN. Thanks for those links though. I usually but some gifts for family from there for special occassions. I'll be checking out these links too!
