Interesting link here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hybrid_(biology)
According to that (and the taxonomic classifications of the two) , technically wolf and dog are same species but different sub-species, which would make a pairing an intra-specific hybrid.
Also, one of the other apparently many definitions of hybrid is:
“The third type of hybrid consists of crosses between populations, breeds or cultivars within a single species. This meaning is often used in plant and animal breeding, where hybrids are commonly produced and selected because they have desirable characteristics not found or inconsistently present in the parent individuals or populations. This flow of genetic material between populations or races is often called hybridization.
So I don’t know if you should take the stern correction to heart 🙂
Would love to see a photo or vid of your girl. Do you have any links to any or can you download any?
