hi - I was on holiday this past week and came across a Tamaskan owner, with her very lovely 14 month old Tamaskan who pointed us to this forum, I have not heard of the breed until this point but I am already very much in love.

I have always wanted to own a 'wolf' look-a-like with out having the hassle/risks etc of a part-wolf, something that was smart and suitable to train etc.

Tamaskan's seem to fit the bill for everything I wanted, and gives me yet another reason to work hard at finding a job! (I have just finished University)

I joined the forum so I could do a lot of research on the breed, before making up my mind and start saving my money. :lol:

How much do pups cost? around £1000? Also how much roughty is pet insurance? I wont be looking to buy obviously to I get a job, so hopefully in a year or two.

I own six snakes, about 50-60 fancy mice which I am breeding for pet and show, a hamster and a field vole. We have owned cats (and rabbits) in the past but never a dog, so lots of research will be done first. we also will probably be getting another moggy at some point in the future (again I need a job first) but I hear Tamaskan's are generally fine with other pets?.


thanks

Also is there a good 'all round' useful care guide to get me started with?

thanks

Welcome to the forum! Prices for a pup vary a bit depending on which breeder you choose, I don't know about insurance as we don't have our dogs insured, you may want to do research on different companies to find the best rate. Tamaskans do well with pets that are part of the family. My boy was not raised with cats, but last year we adopted 2 kittens and aside from chasing them when they run, he is great with them.

Welcome Aboard, you've found the correct wolf lookalike breed without any wolf content to add to your pack.

As for integrating it with your other animals, although I've seen a video of a Tamaskan getting along fine with a rabbit, I'd still be careful though as pups of any breeds can still be rough with any other animals.

Congratulations, very good for first try. Shame about the photos, you will have to borrow one and take some pics of the winning mice later.
