Hi! I'd say wolfdog. Dogs and wolves are the same species so it wouldn't be a hybrid. Am I right?

Dogs and wolves are NOT the same species:

Timber wolf Canis Lupus lycaon
Grey wolf Canis Lupus
Red wolf Canis Rufus

Domesticated dog Canis Familiaris (individual breed ex. canis familiaris husky etc.)

wolfdog is a bit to dramatic for my tastes. I always use hybrid.

Hybrid is the correct term. Wolf Dog is a term used for Wolf Hounds. A Hybrid is a Wolf, Coyote, or Dingo Mixed with a Domestic Dog Breed.


To Chocolate Puppy-

No dogs and Wolves/coyotes/dingos ARE NOT THE SAME SPECIES. While Related Through evolution. They are not even close!!!!!

yea. Wolf Hybrid is a wolf mixed wih a domestic dog.

Dingo hybrid Dingo mixed with domestic dog.

Coyote Hybrid mixed with domestic dog.

BUt in general just Hybrid is used.

I just reviewed a post where a person with out doing reaserch was correcting someone- when they infact were incorrect on the term.

Glad to see all the experts are commenting like usual...

Wolves are the SAME SPECIES AS DOG .. Canis is the species ...

What they ARE NOT is the same Genus .... Lupus.
