Wolamut

History

The Wolamut is a dog hybrid bred originally in the United States. It is a crossbreed between the Timber Wolf and the Alaskan Malamute. The best way to determine the characteristics of your Wolamut is to look at the attributes of the parent breeds and know that you can get a combination of their features in your hybrid, without any detailed guarantees.

Physical Appearance

The Wolamut is always something between the Timber Wolf and the Alaskan Malamute. Since it is impossible to have a 50-50 crossbreed, some Wolamuts will be more like the Wolves while others will mainly take after their Malumute ancestors. With a medium-sized, straight, and thick coat, the Wolamut’s colors will range from white or cream, brown and white, black and white, and pepper gray/salt. Unlike other common hybrids out there, this canine is remarkably large. The average Wolamut weighs between 52 and 79kg.

Temperament

The Wolamut is remarkably easy to train as it is highly co-operative. Inclined to listen to the commands from the owner, it requires fewer repetitions to obey certain instructions. However, the pet has relatively low watchdog ability and less likely to bark in the presence of an intruder. Further, it is not very active and is therefore ideal for people who have a very busy lifestyle or who are constantly away from home. The canine does not require much exercise to stay in good shape. If kept in isolation, it may not be the best of your kids’ companions. To mitigate this hostility toward children, it is advisable that you acquire a very young and tender puppy so that both the kids and the dog become good friends as they grow. This makes it gradually relaxed in the presence of kids as it slowly gets habituated to their innocently provocative antics.

Health

Unfortunately, very little is known about the health facts of the Wolamut as it is a remarkably new introduction in the pet fraternity. Nonetheless, it is most suitable for an apartment life. Because it is not very active, it needs little space to play around in. Moreover, walk your Wolamut at least once in every two days since it doesn’t require a lot of exercising. Feed your dog with about 4.5 to 6 cups of high quality dog dry food that contains adequate amounts of vitamins, proteins, and fats. Ensure that your pet also has access to fresh water all day. Even though it’s not prone to diseases, be keen to call a qualified vet immediately you notice signs of possible ill health.
