Oh man I hope someone gets him. I'm curious to know who the owner was who gave him up, and who the breeder was who sold him. This is why breeders have a responsibility to do as much back ground checking as possible on their potential customers to avoid this sort of thing.

My brother just gave the shelter a call, though they said to call back in an hour. I also sent Denise a message regarding him. My brother is so excited about possibly being able to adopt him he is getting nervous and jittery like a high school girl :lol:

Wonderful, hopefully it works out with him. I just told my parents, who live in San Antonio, and they might look into him if your brother isn't able to adopt him. Good luck!

This looks to be a pure Tamaskan and I only hope that it isnt from a litter bred by a couple who have two of my dogs over in Texas! He sure looks familiar.

Interesting thought, he does look very similar in 'type' to the two adult Tamaskan from Texas but I dont think she would have a had a litter and not told you, and im sure one of the 'Tam Team' (lol) would have spotted any adverts.

I am so excited for you both and I really hope you get him. He definitely looks like a purebred Tam to me! No doubt there is lots of interest for him now so I will keep my fingers crossed that he gets a good home soon! :D

Perhaps send them an email to see if they know anything? It could just be a coincidence but he certainly has the Tam "look"

If anyone in here gets his/hands on him a DNA profiling might be a good idea to see if he is related to any Tamaskan

*ahem* well... Just as hitenshi predicted, I, the brother, has adopted him! :D I am VERY excited and happy!!! X3 His name is going to be Nanaki :) I'll be picking him up next Sunday, and I feel lucky because he is costing me about $45 or $70, something like that, and it's only a 4 hour trip to go and pick him up. Also before I pick him up he is going to be de-wormed, shots taken care of, neutered, and all that fun stuff ^_^ this has made my week! Extremly happy right now and will be more so when I pick him up! :D

So happy for my brother, have not seen him so happy in a long time :) I'm hoping that we will get to learn from the shelter where they got him and I'm curious to have a DNA test done as well.
Either Tuesday or Thursday we will go shopping for bedding, collar, tags, ect.
Yay! Congratulations my little brother :D

You have no idea how thankful we all are that this beautiful boy is going to work out for you!!!! He looks very young, to me...... And think, that the Vet Care they are going to give him would have run well over $300!!!! Let us know when he is safe in your care!!!! And be sure to contact either myself or John/Tina Bannow after you have him so we can try and track the boy's heritage! When you pick him up, try and ask some pointed questions about where he came from, sometimes shelters will give some info up they are suppose to ;)

Can't wait to see pics! Guess I will have to update my website AGAIN ;)

Wow, that was a fast rescue. Please provide us with as much details as you can get on this boy. Most import is to find out where he came from, how old he is, and who bred him. I understand that this information can be next to impossible to get sometimes but, we have to try.

Is it possible, and not prohibitively expensive, to do any sort of DNA test on him to check if he is in fact a Tamaskan if its impossible to track his lineage just by asking questions?

Yes. :)
The DNA test is fairly inexpensive and very easy to do, though it does take a bit of time to process at the lab and for them to report back with the results. However, once he's been profiled it should be easy to tell at least what bloodline he comes from, if indeed he is from TDR lines - it's also possible that he is from RPK or Aatu lines. Of course, it might just be easier to see what info the shelter can provide... since he won't be used for breeding a DNA profile might be an unnecessary expenditure. I think it's fairly safe to say that he IS a Tam, the question is: where from?!

DNA parentage tests are only successful if we have one or both of the parents in our database already. IF he is from RPK he doesnt have his dogs DNA'd so it may not be possible to trace him. If its from Aatu then it is likely we will have one or both parents in the system. If he is from lines that Blustag or another registered breeder has sent over to USA and they have bred without telling anyone then sadly it may not be possible to trace his ancestry 100% unless they have had them DNA'd and no one outside of our registered breeders have done any DNA'ing and its not one of us.
It is always possible that the pup has come from J&J, but he doesnt seem the right age?!?!?

I don't know why, but his picture reminds me of Summer, maybe it's his eyes and that like mark on his forehead?
Edit: I was browsing the Tamaskan pictures on here and coming across Konah, I thought his masking looked alot like hers.

Yep, there is definitely a strong possibility... with his appearance we're all scratching our brains over it (as to what bloodlines / breeders / etc) but perhaps when there are more photos to compare we'll get a better idea. :)

Well, now that I have relaxed for a bit time for the update :). Nanaki is a bit on the skinny side, you can see his ribs, he peed just a little when he was brought out to us, but he warmed up very quickly. We asked how they got him and they said that he was found as a stray and jumped into someones car so was brought there. They thought him to be a year and three months but he really seems quite younger with his puppy like behavior. He did great on the car ride home, no car sickness, just switching between Angelo's side or lap to the back seat. Had someone match my speed on the highway and held up a note on the window, "I WANT A WOLF LIKE YOURS!" :lol: After getting home we had Ulric and Rukia meet him outside and walked around the yard until their business was taken care of. Nanaki has been behaving very well, already learning his new name. Once Angelo gave him food, Ulric was not happy. I gave Ulric some ice-water and Nanaki came by and then Ulric snapped at him :shock: I never expected Ulric to act like such. I tried to get some treats to distract Ulric but once Nanaki came by again, Ulric snapped at him again! I don't know if it is food aggression because he has never done this before and Rukia is always allowed near him when he eats. Maybe jealousy? Either way I'm disappointed with Ulric for acting the way he did but tomorrow I'm hoping to work on that. Right now Nanaki has adopted our laundry room as his den and has been laying or sitting in there for a while.
I'm still exhausted from the trip as of now so will post pictures and videos tomorrow :3

Bringing in a new pup into the house hold is always a trip! Do not worry about Ulric! It will just take some behavior modification for him to accept the new comer! E-mail me privately and I will help you through this transition... If it is truly "food aggression" that is the easiest thing to deal with! I see this all the time with rescues (not normally with my resident dogs, but the principal is still the same ;) ) no big deal ;) But I have a feeling that Ulric just needs to get used to the new addition!
Good luck and keep us posted!!!!

It may be food aggression. It made me a little upset when Ulric snapped at Nanaki, he would not leave the laundry room at all, even when I offered treats :\ I layed on the floor with him, fell asleep for a bit, woke up a little later and went back to the laundry room to see Nanaki excited to see me <3 he ventured back out just a little, rukia and Ulric came up to him, he steped back, Ulric got closer, Ulric and Nanaki sniffed each other, Ulric then got down with his butt in the air offering to play. Rukia tackled him instead, so I called Nanaki over and he walked with me to another room. So my guess it's food aggression, but it's only been one afternoon that I really have seen anything.

I'm sure they'll settle down. It took Ayasca and Mischa a while to get used to each other even though she is a bitch. He loves the ladies so I was surprised he wasn't more pleased to have her move in. I suppose it's a bit like bringing a new baby home, the other kids get jealous at first.

I am so upset to say that my brother is no longer able to keep Nanaki :cry: There has been lots of family issues and drama going on the past couple weeks and it has been decided that my brother will be moving in 2 weeks to South Florida with our half sister and her family. Because of this he is unable to keep Nanaki, even though he wishes he could and loves him so much, but feels he deserves a better home. My mother said she will not keep him. My husband and I unfortunately are unable to take him because of money and space (also Ulric still does not like him for some weird reason). I really want him to a good home (feel like I'm going to cry just thinking about him going :cry: ).

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

Oh no I'm so sorry you guys. I wish I could drive down there and take him but we won't be in the area for months... It sucks when you have to give up your friend, I myself have given up 2 labs, it's heartbreaking :cry:
