    DefaultMeet Samson!

    This is Samson my 5.5 week old black lab/wolf mix. We just got him last week and he is an absolute delight and probably too smart for his own good! We are already calling him an overachiever! Just learning to walk straight, he has already started to walk up the stairs and almost sleeping throughout the night!
    Anyway, Samson wanted to say HI so here he is!

    Yes he is a little young but the lady we got him from wouldn't keep him any longer so we took a chance and he is sooooo worth it!

    Wow... okay well just to warn you... there are some things that they learn in those 5-8 weeks that your puppy missed out on by not being with his littermates.

    One of them is the bite inhibition... you are probably going to have to work extra hard to teach him what is appropriate to bite and chew on. There is also some socialization they get with their littermates... so if I were you, as soon as it was safe (vaccinations) get your puppy enrolled in a puppy kindergarten class and do your best to socialize him with other dogs.

    I don't mean to be all doomsday-ish... I would just keep these things in mind if I were you. My puppy Ender, stayed extra long at the breeders (long story) and to this day we've had zero biting problems and he's great with any dog we meet... I can't help but think staying with his littermates helped with that.

    Regardless... Samson is a sweetie pie and I'm sure everything will turn out just fine ;D Just wanted you to be aware of these things in case you weren't.

    Oh yes we are all aware of what to look out for. Fortunately, my dad owns a pet store and has been in the business for 30yrs so we have a good background. He's just starting the chewing stage and nibbling stage but he's very smart so I think he will catch on to what is ok and what's not. He's actually met one of our neighbor's dogs and he got along very well and he loves kids too. I think he's just going to be the best dog! I am always up for any suggestions and/or tips!!

    Welcome from So. California. What an unusual mix - lab/wolf. I'd love to hear more about where he came from if you don't mind - not trying to be nosey, just curious about the wolf background.

    By the way my female didn't come to us until she was about 13 weeks old and she doesn't have nearly the soft mouth that my male does.
