I agree with the previous reviewer. But they are not only misinformed, they are very careless about customers and use animals to make big profits. I expressed interest in a litter of what they call"wolamutes," there were 3 puppies left.  Puppy #1 and #2were priced at $1,200 each and puppy #3 at $1,000. Now, I did some research and that is very high, usually that is what you pay for a purebred AKC malamute, not for a mutt. people may charge high prices for high content wolfdogs, but these were very low content. The person answering the e-mails was a third party and if I had questions he had to ask the breeder and then get back to me. He told me that puppy #3 (the $1,000 puppy that was sold.) I asked to talk to the breeder and spoke with her on the phone. She seemed very money-oriented and wouldn't drop the price by a dime despite being so overpriced.

(My dog is a gorgeous wolamute and I purchased him for $450.)There is nothing in her puppies that make them worth more than double , actually almost triple; quite the opposite: most friends I asked about those 3 puppies and others I was considering, all picked a puppy from a different, and more honest seller, who was selling an AKC purebred for $900!)  She told me there was a mistake in what the third party advertiser had told me, and that puppy #3 was still there, it was puppy #2 that had been sold.

The e-mail person then e-mailed me saying that there had been a misatke, and puppy #3 was still there. He also wrote to me that the breeder won't go down the price of $ 1,200. On top of that, he raised puppy #3 price to $1,200!! Now, I think that is very dishonest! That is one that I considered purchasing, because I was not going to spend $ 1,200 on a mix breed malamute! I see here clear dishonesty, not a bit of consideration towards the customer that they had been in contact and was probably going to purchase a puppy from them. They just saw that they had managed to get rid of one for the high rice, so lets raise the price of #3 and try to get $200 in profit, that is worth losing a customer and your reputation. I would call this sneaky and deceiving.
Oh and the funny thing is: the breeder said she couldn't lower the price until she spoke to her e-mail person, since he'd have the last word; the e-mail person told me that the breeder had the last word and she wouldn't go down. Let's grow up people, and stop the monkey business.

The fact that they don't ask for any applicatin whatsoever before selling a puppy, and don't offer to take the puppy  back if a buyer in the future didn't want him anymore, just show how this is a profit business and they cannot care less of what is going to happens to those puppies and in which hands they end up.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

I am one of these breeders.

AUTHOR: actualbreeder - ()

I am an actual breeder that works only with this website (wolfhuskypup.com) which is run by a woman named Kim. I am one of many of the wolf-hybrid breeder that are her clients. Most of the complaints that you all are making a true or understandable; I am just as dissatisfied with the way she has conducted business with me. However, she has done a remarkable job at cornering the market for the advertisement and marketing of the puppies that we breeders are trying to sell to good homes. She pays top dollar for the top slots in google and other search engines. She books the flights and tell the breeder which dog to put on which plain.

She is the only one who has communication with the other breeders and most of the buyers. She does not let them really even talk to each other or have any contact info. This is why most the time when a buyer gets their puppy, they know little to nothing about what kind of people raised and loved it until then. This bothers me in the fact that I wish I could have more contact with the other breeders and clients to get to know what kind of home I’m sending my babies to. We breeders really can't even be sure that she is not jacking up the price to the buyers and pocketing more than she is letting on. She literally gets pictures, names and descriptions of these puppies and tell us what she sold it for and sends us money via PayPal.

We occasionally get to meet the people we are sending are puppies to if they need to pick it up or have us meet them to deliver it, but that is very rarely. She also asks for about a $500-$600 profit per puppy that she markets, lists on the site and sells. She is even smart with the way she has redirected and explained any questions from breeders on why the money for the puppies is late or just plan missing. She has had several problems with owing breeders money because of poor business conduct and decisions. I will say at least by what she has told me, that this is due to other breeders not coming thru with puppies or screwing her.

She has tried to make this up by moving money here & there and saying "ill owe you one" or "I’ll give you a puppy for your breeding stock to make up for it." I really just wish there was another person out there who I could move the business of marketing my puppies to and that could compete with her. Just a smarter business partner that would make wiser decisions and whose actions were not so shady. So for future buyers out there, if you really want to be in contact to where your puppy is coming from, pressure her back to give you and email or even a Facebook page (most REAL breeders will have a Kennel name and website of their own) I apologize for these dissatisfaction with the behavior of the websites runner and share in your frustration.

However, I will not say that selling the puppies for the current listing prices is wrong. Besides the fact that the breeder do this for a living, I can say for sure that the money I (and some other breeders in know personally) earn gets put back into taking care of the dogs welfare and happiness. Also, it is often better for the puppies’ futures to sell to puppies for a stepper price than wolf hybrids you find breeding in their back yards without really knowing what they’re doing or taking proper care of the animal’s livelihood.

Not to mention the amount of complaints of people getting ripped off and receiving an unhealthy and unhappy animal. This necessary price often insures that the decision to own a wolf hybrid is not a quick and ephemeral one. We want the future owners to be serious and capable of providing anything the puppy may need and not just decide they are too hard to handle and throw then in a pound like so many other poor wolf hybrids today. We find people are making a serious life time commitment when they spend that much. Like an engagement ring, you better be serious & sure before that put the money down for it.

And many times people who are looking for a wolf hybrid are wanting one for all the wrong reasons. It is NOT a regular dog and requires more attentions, love, food and care then a regular domesticated dog. The price and screening process tends to weed out more of these kinds of people looking for a cool new puppy to brag about. So I can confidently say I truly want what is  best for my animals and puppies; and sadly that the poor business attitude of wolfhuskypups.com is necessary and tolerated by a lot of wonderful breeders in order to place these beautiful puppies in a happy and health forever home.

sounds like you just werent an acceptable buyer

AUTHOR: pleased buyer - ()

I have bought several pups from their site. I have always had to fill out an application and talk to the 3rd party before the breeder. This helps sort out the serious buyers from the lookie lou. If they had to go back and forth it seems to me that someone just didn't feel you were qualified to buy one of their pups. They are very selective on who they will sell to. both of my pups are registered with the ckc a wolf pup cannot be aka it is not a pure bred. But I know that the Dame of one of my pups is aka giant malamute. I also know that the owner paid 1600.00 for her. They are not rip offs they are well aware of who the parents, grand parents are to make sure there is no in breeding.Their dogs are healthy and loved. And they have always told me that if for any circumstance what so ever I could no longer keep my babies to contact them and they will gladly rehome them  they have even arranged  for foster homes for people who are in a temporary situation. Just  enjoy your pup isnt that what this is all about finding your special companion?

posting twce the same advertising..looks like spam to me

AUTHOR: K777 - (United States of America)

I am wondering why the same person is allowed to post twice the exact same comment. Should I do the same and post mine again? This is a very vague advertising for that website; I wouldn't be surprised if it was posted by the breeder or the e-mail/advertising person themselves.

Can you provide specific facts, which pup you purchased and your name? If you are a real person, of course, and not someone from wolfhuskypups

Since this wolfhuskypups company truly overwhelms many classifieds websites with their ads (even posting much lower prices to lure in the customer, and then don't honor those prices), it would seem to me that they don't get customers from word out mouth from previous happy customer. They need to advertise really bad cause their customers don't come back and don't refer them; that is how the market works.

I do find it unethical to advertise a puppy for $ 1,000 and then when someone is interested in buying the puppy, they decide to raise it to $ 1,200. That is not an ethical breeder and I have seen no breeder ever do that.

I also find it childish for one person to blame the other for the puppies being overpriced....

In the end, they had to drop the price to $900 cause they couldn't sell the puppies for $1,200

I purchaced a puppy

AUTHOR: wolf lover - (United States of America)

I have to disagree with what you said about the wolfhuskypups. I recently purchaced a puppy from them and had to go through several steps before i could pay, Application, contract that said they would rehome the puppy if i could not keep him, I even rescued an adult from them. So I know they will take back puppies and adults even if you didnt purchase your dog from them. I had a very good experience with them and would recomend them to all my freiends and Family. Also as for the price Breeders can set their price to what ever they want.
