Veterinary doctor Lindsay Butzer, who often shares stories from her practice on TikTok, this time showed netizens what a puppy born from a cross between a wolf and a dog looks like. Although the animal is only 12 weeks old, its appearance can surprise even the most serious dog lovers. Syrus – because that’s what it’s called – is truly a “puppy piece”.
If you’ve ever wondered what a wolf-dog hybrid looks like, Dr. Lindsay Butzer shared a video on her social media that will satisfy your curiosity. The animal, despite its young age, is already of impressive size, and its charm is undeniable.
What does a dog-wolf hybrid look like? The vet cleared up the doubts
Syrus showed up at Dr. Lindsay Butzer’s office, and the vet didn’t miss such a great opportunity to show him off to her TikTok followers. Although it’s hard to believe, the dog-wolf hybrid is still a puppy, which is certainly not indicated by its size. The puppy is only 12 weeks old and already weighs 35 pounds, or more than 15 kg. It is therefore not surprising that the doctor has difficulty keeping him in his arms.
“It’s Syrus, it’s definitely a huge baby,” she said.
Although the animal has wild roots, it behaves very calmly in Dr. Butzer’s arms. Nobody will be surprised that the animal made a huge impression on Internet users.
Dog-wolf hybrid: is it legal?
It turns out that in Florida, mixing wolf and dog is legal. However, they are treated like captive animals and not just pets. Their guardians must therefore be in possession of a special permit.
Syrus and her caregivers often visit the friendly vet who runs her practice with her father in Boca Raton, Florida. The doctor specifies that these animals are reserved for experienced keepers. Despite their cute appearance, they have wild roots and misalignment can make them aggressive as they grow.
– Syrus is only 30% a wolf. If a hybrid is more than 75% wolf, its keeper must have a special license to own it, Dr. Butzer explains on his Instagram.
Such a dog is a huge responsibility
TikTok, shared by a veterinarian, has spread like wildfire on the web. Internet users were delighted with the hybrid of a dog and a wolf, but the specialist reminds that in no case should we forget the wild savagery that lies dormant in the genes of Syrus. The puppy is 40% Wolf, 30% Malamute, 20% German Shepherd and 10% Husky. The characteristics attributed to predatory mammals of the Canidae family are especially felt during frequent howling and the desire to build dens.
– Owning a dog-wolf hybrid is not easy! They need plenty of time to socialize and train each day, the vet assures.
Network users did not spare Syrus compliments on TikTok, in which he starred:
– It’s beautiful;
– O mother! I would like one!
– I’d like to kiss her!
