The howling photo surprisingly looks less wolf like as his short fangs don't give that wolf-like feeling but he is still a handsome dog nonetheless :)

His upper canines are hidden in his lips in that one, it is a funny angle. He definitely doesn't have short fangs. That's the first/only howling picture I've got, but I will try to take some better ones when the chance arrives.

Already contacted you on facebook about the ANCD, and talked about your gorgeous Yarrow, but since I've joined this forum, I felt the need to comment something about him again. God he is handsome!
Probably one of the most beautiful dogs I've seen in my life. He looked like a silver fox kit/black wolf cub when he was small, hehe ;)

I LOVE these two pictures... so artistic.. and that first one really shows his wolfy side, I find ;)
He's one beautiful guy. You're lucky to have him. I look forward into owning and ANCD one day too, just not at this very moment. Do you know if the breeder will still breed these guys in, let's say, 5 years?

Also, are there any other breeders, or is she the only one?

PS: Finally, I'm getting a New Guinea dingo between January 1 and January 10, 2013. At this moment, it's the best animal I could welcome in my family. I also look forward on seeing MORE pictures of beautiful Yarrow, as I am very fond of photography too (you will see this as soon as the NGS dingo enters my home :D ) and you have a really great model to work with!

He's beautiful! And such a big boy. Makes me question whether we should get another tamaskan next, or an ancd. Maybe both! ;) My boy is just 12 weeks, so I guess we have some time to decide. :lol:

What a delightful journey I have just been on!!!! Took me almost 20 minutes to watch your boy grow from a fuzzy black pup to an incredibly stunning beastie! I loove the name Yarrow.... I actually have a dog name diary (I know geekie) I have to say.... The name Yarrow has been in there for years!! Looove looove loove that boy.

PS.... Just to give you fair warming....I am moving in, in approximately one week.... I won't need much space... Promise!!

Someone asked me a whole bunch of specific questions on the ANCD thread, so I thought I'd just copy and paste them and my answers into here! If you have any other specific ones, I'm happy to answer...

1. How is Yarrow's temperament? On the whole, really nice. He's mellow, affectionate, incredibly smart, and generally easy to live with. He is however very stranger shy.

2. Does he need alot of exercise and space or is he/can he be a mostly inside dog that just gets taken out on walks a few times a week? Well, for my lifestyle I find that he is generally an inside dog who chills out most of the time. But I do have 5 acres that he can play on and we go on one very long walk/horseback ride every day, and we do training sessions most days as well. So he gets quite a bit of mental and physical stimulation, which I'm sure contributes to his mellowness. Still compared to a lot of other breeds his exercise requirements aren't off the chart. On days if I'm not feeling well or something and we don't go out, he'll get a bit restless but some play with another dog or person can usually suffice. I can't think of very many large breed dogs who could be happy with only getting out on walks a few times a week. You will run into way more problem behaviors with limited exercise....

3.It doesn't look like you live in the city. Do you think an ANCD is good for someone who lives in the city and works alot of hours and can only take the dog walking once a day at most? Yeah, I live way out in the country. I think that an ANCD could be fine in the city, but they would need sufficient exercise. One walk a day would be minimum. And for me this means offleash for at least an hour or two so the dog can really get out and run.

4.Can they be kept as primarily indoor dogs with free range of the house even when the owner isn't home? Yarrow is primarily an indoor dog. I crate him when I leave now, but eventually I would like to be able to leave him uncrated. At the moment (he's almost 9 months) he would get into stuff still.

5.How's their prey drive? Yarrow's is not too strong. He is around my two cats all the time, and has been around chickens, baby goats, horses etc. I wouldn't trust him unsupervised with the chickens or baby goats, but he is generally pretty good with small animals. The other day he saw a herd of deer when we were out in the woods and he just sat and watched them, which I was really pleased about.

6.Are they good with strangers? Some are, some aren't. Like I said, Yarrow is very stranger shy. However he is the only one from his litter that is. I socialized him extensively when he was young and he still just doesn't like people he doesn't know. It's slowly getting better. Once he warms up to someone, he totally loves them.

7.How friendly are they/ how much human attention do they like(i.e. Are they an independent breed or one that needs their humans to be around alot and enjoy human attention)? Yarrow is a nice mix of affectionate and independent. He is not needy or clingy, he's quite content hanging out by himself, but he really enjoys cuddle sessions and he's a really sweet, affectionate dog.

8. Should you have more than one at a time(i.e. Would they get lonely if they were the only dog in the house while the owner's out at work)? Yarrow loves other dogs so it's really helpful having two, they can play with each other and wear each other out. I don't think it would be a necessity, though.

9.Do they get along with other dogs? Yes, so far Yarrow is wonderful with other dogs. He's extremely submissive, sometimes to the point of being annoying to the other dog.

10.Do they get along with other animals? I've had Yarrow around my cats and horses every day and he does very well with them.

11.How is their recall when off leash? Good, as long as you train them properly! Yarrow walks offleash every day, and has since I got him. I am never worried about him running off, he is always close by.

12. Are there any health problems to look out for in the breed? Not any in particular that I know of. They seem to be a very healthy breed in general and obviously all breeding dogs are rigorously health tested.

13. What is their average life span? I'm not sure, but I know that Yarrow's grandmother lived to 18, and Xena is 13 I believe and looks and acts much younger, so I'm hopeful that Yarrow will live a long life!

14. Do they howl like either a wolf type howl or a husky type howl, malamute type howl, or their own unique howl type? I would say Yarrow's howl is more wolf like than husky like.

15. How noisy are they? Not very noisy. Yarrow does bark but rarely, and only at things he thinks might be evil intruders (bears etc). I've been working on getting him to howl on command but he doesn't howl often otherwise. He had a variety of whines and rooos that mean different things. He was actually quite vocal/whiney as a puppy but he has mostly outgrown that.

16. Do they have any wolf-like behaviors? Hmm. Hard to say exactly since wolf behaviors are mostly just dog behaviors that are intensified. He likes to steal things and proudly runs away with them, he's timid around strangers like I said, but I can't really think of any purely wolfy behaviors.

17. How easy are they to train? Extremely easy as long as you have good motivation. Yarrow is the smartest dog I have ever worked with, hands down. He learns new behaviors and tricks incredibly fast. He is more independent though than say, your average herding breed, so sometimes he is doing his own thing and he's not always just watching you, waiting for you to tell him what to do. So it's important to have good motivation. He is food and toy motivated.

18. How easy are they to groom? Very easy. No grooming needed most of the time except during shedding, then I was grooming almost daily just to limit the hair floating around the house. Baths only needed if he rolls in something smelly (which he does like to do).

19. How easy to care for are they in general? Pretty easy. But, I do have a lifestyle very conducive to dog ownership. I work from home and spend a great deal of my time with my dogs, training, going out walking, etc, so I feel he has a very fulfilling life. I'm not sure what he would be like if he had to spend the majority of his time alone. I've found with many dogs, they are much more high energy, intense, and much more likely to display unwanted behavior when they are left alone many hours a day. But that is just a personal opinion/observation! So Yarrow is an easy dog for me, but he may not be for someone else...I'm not sure.

I'm glad you liked the thread! There are a heck of a lot of photos in here, for sure. I also keep lists of dog names, so I guess I am a geek too ;) That's cool that Yarrow is on yours! Not many Yarrows out there.

Ok, good thing we have a huge house!

Yarrow is absolutely one of my favorites :) He resembles a lot my low-content female wolfdog puppy Tara, she's black also. Picture: http://tiikerililja.nettisivu.org/files ... ra65kk.jpg

I found this ANCD breed very interesting!

In my opinion Yarrow actually looks less wolf-like in some photos depending on the angle where it was taken. Although he does look more like a wolf than the black Tamaskans.

His scary picture! He was telling one of the other dogs to stay away from his deer leg that he found out on our walk. He wouldn't do this to a person - we're allowed to take anything away from him...

Such a gorgeous boy! How big is he now? Is he still growing?
When the wolves cry
to the Blue Corn Moon,
When they howl at
the passing of mountains,
When their gold eyes
pierce your mind and soul,
When you become one
with the wolf within,
then I will love you.

Thank you! I started a new thread for him, it has his most recent photos. He is about 90 lbs and 29'' at the shoulder, though I haven't measured him in a while. He hasn't grown much in the past few months, but I wouldn't be surprised if he grew a bit more before he was totally done.

Wow! He's a big boy! Are his littermates around the same size as him?

I've been doing a lot of research on this breed, and I'm very keen on getting one in the near future (if finances permit). I have a standard poodle and a schnoodle, so I'm not very familiar with what big-dog-needs are, and more specifically ANCD needs. How much food does he eat a day? How big is his crate? What kind of toys would you recommend, and how long do you think they will last? Would you recommend an ANCD for an electric fence (I don't have an electric fence, but I might get one soon for my other two dogs)?

I asked Ann, but she hasn't gotten to me yet. She's a busy woman, as far as I can tell.

When I was doing screening for my ANCD Anne wanted to make sure I had a six foot fence with a anti dig parameter... An electric fence wouldn't work with my tamaskan for sure he is too strong headed and determined, not so sure it would work with my ANCD either.

Okay, that makes sense. Though both of my dogs are smart, they're also not as head-strong or willful, and very submissive. With them I never really had to correct them more than once or twice, because they want to please me. Teaching them on an electric fence would be easy. I can see how that wouldn't work for a Tam or an ANCD. They're very smart, and as I have observed, can think for themselves just fine. I think that if I tried with a Tam or an ANCD, the dog would outsmart the fence...
