Hello! :3

Post by blackmeadows » Sun Feb 19, 2012 10:34 pm

Hi everyone.

My name is Will. :] I am a 23 year old guy from Oregon, in the USA.

I love dogs, and am planning to get a career as a dog trainer one day. My partner and I also wanted to get into dog breeding, but I wanted a hardy, healthy, intelligent breed that was rarer; I stumbled upon the Tamaskan Dog entry on Wikipedia and fell in love. I have always loved wolves, but didn't like the idea of owning wolves or wolfdogs, and I liked the looks of GSDs, Huskys and Malamutes but wasn't sure if I could handle the intense personalities of those breeds. The Tamaskan Dog seems to be exactly what I am looking for. :] Made up of Northern breeds, but seems to have a less intense prey drive, and wolf-ish looking without having wolf content. Amazing.

However, I admit I don't know much about Northern Breeds. I have a chihuahua/pom mix so I am not an utter dog "newb", but I'm not sure if knowing how to handle a tiny spitz-type will count for much with Tamaskan Dogs, heh. I know I have much to learn before I even start looking into owning a Tamaskan. (Let alone breeding them, which is my dream for the far-off future.) It will be about five years before I am able to own another dog, so I have time to learn and hope that I can pick up some things from this forum. :]

Anyhow, it's nice to be here and meet you all!

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!

~ Cherokee Proverb

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity... I'm not sure about the former.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes. :]

And yes, Skyedream! Doing research before getting any sort of new pet is a good idea; adding a new member to the family is a big decision.

Welcome, the best way to find out if a Tamaskan is for you is to meet one or a few, but be prepared to be hooked :lol:
