Wolf haven spirit of the past is one of the worst "wolf" breeders yet. They sell 98% wolves (who are purely dog) for over $1,500 to the public.
They think that wolves are feline, and that they come from mountain lions. They constantly contradict themselves and are filling people with lies. Worst part is, people believe them.
Here are some quotes from their website:
"The government has reported that 2008 there are only 52 Mexican Gray Wolves remaining in the wild and at government facilities. We are trying to change this."
If the government really did report such things, why would they choose bad breeders like them to be apart of this "mission".
Also, if you were rescuing real wolves, you would release them in the wild, not sell them to people who don't know a thing about wolves.
And if this was true, they would have proper containment, and they would have real wolves, not Siberian husky or malamute mixes. [continued below]....
"All of these wolves are:
Hypo-Allergenic Can be very good with kids and people Very protective Needs to be with people and needs companionship with you and your family"
Wolves aren't hypo-allergenic, they are not good with kids and people, and they are not protective; at all.
"The wolf is the lion of the North. They are called that because they are descendants from the same lineage as lions."
Wolves are lions? I guess because wolves have pointy ears, a lot of fur, a tail and eyes that means that they are related.
"Easily trainable, very protective, very quiet, very clean, and NO BODY ODORS!"
I think most people know that wolves, even wolfdogs, are not trainable.
Wolves are not protective at all, they are very, very shy and would rather hide under the bed when someone robs you than help you. That is a known fact among wolf biologists.
And I'm sorry but every dog/wolf will smell once in awhile.
"So you can have a wolf anywhere that you are, they easily adapt to any living situation"
Wolves do not easily adapt to any living situation, they need acres and acres of land to be free and be fine. They aren't suitable for apartments/trailers etc., like they stated.
"They make good pets for even truck drivers! We have sold a lot to truckers and have never had any complaints."
They would not be suited in a truck their whole lives. Wolves can get so stressed in a car that they will vomit.
If there were no complaints, that's because those truck drivers kept dogs in the trucks, and dogs are much more adaptable than wolves.
And this is just SOME of the nonsense that they state.
Also, the dogs they have are bred every single year. Every single year. .They don't have a break. They pump out puppies like its candy.
They are estimated to having dozens of litters a year, and a lot of puppies. They don't run health tests, they inbreed on regular basis etc.
They have a three-year-old female that's been bred three times. A four year old female bred four times. A male bred twelve times. A one year old male bred twice. A two year old female bred three times.
This company advertises 98 percent wolfdogs for sale. There is no wolf in them.
They are a mixture of northern dog breeds. They charge $800 for these mutts plus another $800 for delivery.
Many reputable shelters or breeders will warn you to stay away from them. Do your research and don't be fooled by a mix of dog breeds if it is a wolfdog you desire.
They are one of the worst offenders of lies and scams. Stay far, far away from Wolf Haven Spirit of the Past.
They grossly misrepresent their animals. They claim to have wolves/98% wolfdogs, but their animals are nothing more then poorly bred/inbred husky, malamutes, German Shepherds, and who knows what else (definitely NOT wolf).
They also claim very much false (and very illegal) heritage- Mexican Grey Wolves.
These animals are so endangered that someone (a private individual) that is able to get their hands on a real Mexican Grey for any reason, is not only commiting a federal crime, but why on earth would someone want to breed a critcally endangered species to produce cross bred dog mutts?
That is an incredible lie on it's own, one that I am horrified so many of their buyers believe.
There have been many different sanctuaries and very reputable wolf/wolfdog people that have tried to talk to these ladies, but they refuse to be educated.
Any wolfdog phenotyper can see right through these ladies, but sadly most of the public cannot. Wolf Haven Spirit of the Past is a puppy mill, and if you really want real wolves/wolfdogs, do your research by reading EDUCATIONAL wolfdog misrepresentation sites, and you won't be disappointed.
