Wolfdog

wolf-dog-hd-wallpaperwolfdog (also called a wolf–dog hybrid or wolf hybrid) is a canid hybrid resulting from the mating of a gray wolf (various Canis lupus subspecies) and a dog (Canis lupus familiaris). The term “wolfdog” is preferred by most of the animals’ proponents and breeders because the domestic dog was taxonomically recategorized in 1993 as a subspecies of Canis lupus, which includes gray wolves. (By extension, a wolfdog is also a member of Canis lupus.) The American Veterinary Medical Association and the United States Department of Agriculture refer to the animals as wolf–dog hybrids.[1] Rescue organizations consider any dog with wolf heritage within the last five generations to be a wolfdog, including some established wolfdog breeds.

The term “domestic dog” is generally used for both domesticated and feral varieties. The dog was the first domesticated animal[4] and has been the most widely kept working, hunting, and pet animal in human history. The word “dog” can also refer to the male of a canine species,[5] as opposed to the word “bitch” which refers to the female of the species.
