Lorne was born at a zoo in Georgia who breeds a select number of wolf pups to be used for educational purposes and for ambassadors for their species. Lorne's brother, Wyatt can be seen at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, California. Lorne is being raised with the hope of using him in educational talks to raise awareness for an often misunderstood animal. Despite media attention that wolves in the wild have stabilized their numbers, they are still very much at risk. Wolf hunting continues to persist, both legally and illegally. Wolves are still stigmatized in society, especially by farmers and ranchers who if merely seeing a wolf will on sight, no matter the threat. This mentality is hurting our intelligent friend, whose relationship and companionship led us to the domesticated dog we have today and love. Lorne visits with the public regularly and even though he's just a cub, he has instantly charmed his way into the hearts of many others who before misunderstood and feared one of our closest ties to the natural world.

Lorne is a subspecies of the Grey (or Timber) Wolf. He was born in April (wolves are only born in the spring, unlike domesticated dogs) and until he came to me just shy of 7 weeks was used in meet-and-greets at the Georgia zoo. In July he went on a trip across the United States from out West to Chicago. Unfortunately once there, he swallowed a small slip lead and had to have a life threatening surgery to remove it. His recovery was remarkable and the vet that preformed the surgery said it was the fastest she had ever seen. Wolves are strong and very adaptable. Their immune system due to their varied gene pool and lack of interbreeding as seen in domesticated dogs, makes them lack the health problems they often do. It was a scary time, but thankfully today you wouldn't even know it ever happened (except for the constant reminder of paying off the bill!).

I'm working with Lorne every day and I hope that he is able to continue to reach out to the public as he matures. It is common that wolves once establishing a territory upon reaching adulthood have trouble leaving it and feel much more comfortable at home than in strange places. We will see what path Lorne wants to follow in life, but I hope that he will be kind enough to continue to make a positive impression on others and be an ambassador for his species.

I don't know why people think wolfdogs are dangerous. it's just like the stereotype with Pitbulls. Their actions reflect their owner. Like all dogs, their envoriment and owner affects their personality. It's like have a gun. Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

I've never seen a wolf dog that looks like this and never barks. I think this is a wolf personally.

I know you've said somewhere that you can't train Wolf dogs, but do you not try to discipline him at all for tearing apart your house? I saw the video where you taught him how to sit as a pup or get into the car so I'm just wondering if there are other things to do to curb his behavior somewhat. I'm not being mean or anything, I'm just genuinely curious (:

Lol, good on you man! You're helping the community. I would love to get a wolf dog as I am very active and everything I need for a wolf dog, I just think it would take me too long to get used to it growling without crapping myself xD. Good on you to be able to live with that though, it must be hard lol. I've cared for a wolf dog before, and it was so awesome!

NO. wolves are NOT domestic animals and they should NOT be kept as pets. At any given time a wolve's natural survival instincts could take over and there goes, Not only your dog, but your family as well. it's against the law to keep a wild animal as a pet.

How can people deal with this when living in an house? I'm not even sure if the dog is living with them or they're living with the dog as he's already got all his territories marked out.

Hi! I just had a question. I know this has nothing to do with the video, but do you know what Winter Wolf Syndrome is? Has your wolf dog ever had it? I might be getting a wolf dog in a year or two and I've been doing research and have come across a few articles about WWS. It's like PMS, but in wolves and wolf dogs. I was wondering if you've had to deal with this, and how I could safely deal with a wolf dog that gets it. Thank you!

Your wolf is so energetic he probably breaks a lot of stuff at your house,mine is so calm and peaceful and he understands your orders before you even finish telling them.

i swear this is what my german shepherd would do when i used to leave him free in my house. when i saw the wolfdog climbing the shelves it reminded me of when i came home to find things taken down from my shelves and eaten. funny to look back on puppy disasters now that he is 2 and has calmed down a ton, haha. needles to say he has his own bedroom he stays in when i have to leave him now :)

For people that keep asking if wolf dogs are dangerous, yes. But not just wolf dogs. Any pet you have can be dangerous. A wolf dog may never bite anything but a toy in his/her life. Whereas a Chihuahua could bite your ankle. Wolf dogs have very watered down genetics. A wolf dog usually only has about 23% wolf in them but 77% husky or whatever else, the rest is domesticated dog meaning they are much safer than wolves. Wolf dogs are much more tame than a regular wolf. But they are still very messy, and do have natural instincts in them. Don't ever physically punish them or abuse them verbally or physically in any way that makes them feel threatened. Be gentle with them and you'll be fine.

Where are the best areas in the u.s to own wolf dogs???
'Skidern' 2 months ago
if your home has plenty of outdoor area for the dog to frolic in there's no problem in owning one of these

If you live in a crammed apartment with other pets, it borders on abuse

I feel bad for Lorne - I'm not saying you are a bad person or he is suffering, but wolves should be in the wild. we should stop breeding dogs, wolf dogs etc. we should stop destroying land for farm animals (aka let's go vegan). I hope what you are doing will bring some positivity into this world.
ps. he seems restless alright.

For some reason I thought he was a Wolf-dog Hybrid
'Newenlightenmentnow' 2 months ago
So Lorne is a real wolf? He's not a hybrid he's a real Timber Wolf? I assume you made this video to demonstrate how restless a wolf would be in a the house and why a wolf shouldn't be owned as an exotic pet. Is there a reason why Lorne seems to be gathering anything that's soft and tossing it in the middle?

Omg I WANT ONE !!!!!! I agree with some peoplewere there not pets. You see, I'm a therian .I need a companion sooo I think a wolf dog would be perfect. I have a huge yard with trees and a river and stuff for when I "shift" . Tell me if it would be a good idea to get one. I would not put it in a cage when I leave I would put him/her on my back porch. It's screened in and big . And has extra stuff bc I had a yellow lab who would brake out a lot.

You got a wolfdog abut your house is set up in a frilly way.

My house is very minimalistic. All the furniture is leather (older not $3000 new stuff) and my two German Shepherds have full reign of the place.
Nothing is off limits. Couches, chairs, kitchen - even the basement.
At the same time, nothing is set up to fail. Pictures on the wall are waist high or higher.
Built in dining room cabinet is real wood drawers and glass doors are above waist height.

My place is SO DOG FRIENDLY that I command bot dogs to sit in the kitchen, next to the fridge and clearly out of sight of the other rooms.
I then hide about 1/4 lb of pepperoni slices ALL OVER THE HOUSE.
Window sills (up high!), under chairs, on the built in, between cushions, in my bedroom etc...
Once im done, I give the release command and watch them hunt.
Ever see a GS push a couch to get to a treat? It's pure hunting instincts.

This pays off in spades - When I walk them off leash, they follow commands with military precision because they KNOW that I balance it off with fun time!

Irresponsible westerners who WANT these dogs are no different than the rich middle eastern scum who buy exotic wildlife like cheetahs
For there own ego to boost there Facebook followers and make more virtual friends. People today disregard what is right in order to forfill what they WANT. A valueless society build on possessions, cunts all of them!
