Re: medication and the Tamaskan

I've heard that they can react on narcosis. I think it is extremely rare. I've heard a few stories about wolfdogs reacting badly (or not waking up from anesthesia) so it's important to only use a very low dosage of sedative but I think these random reactions can happen to any dog of any breed, much...

Re: Suggestions for Outcross Breeds

**OFF TOPIC** Double J isn't registered with the TDR as far as I know. But some of the pups they bred, and are now used for breeding (Darwin & Kya), were. Then unless Double J re-registers with TDR, any litters they produce won't be TDR registered. With that said, I personally can't recommend a TDR ...

Re: Suggestions for Outcross Breeds

For example: in the United States, Arrow the Hedlund Husky was used as outcross. This breed we were told had no health issues (seriously, EVERY dog breed has health issues, every single living being on this planet carries some 'bad' genes). He sired 3 Tamaskan litters and then we found out one of t...

Of course since Ruuq and Tlun are outcross pups out of Freyja and Arrow, they will likely be bred back to a Tamaskan which would put Oskari and/or Valko somewhere in the 3rd, 4th or 5th gen depending on which stud is used. Arrow also has wolf content further back in his ancestry. ;) Interesting. I ...
