Just been calling around to Wolf rescues, Trying to get information about what I could do.
i finally tracked down someone with credibility (a leading expert in specifically wolves and wolfdogs) who was willing to help, and I asked him to identify Kinu. Apparently I have a low content wolfdog which is believed to be 0 to 50% (because is actually no way to tell percentages with the pedigree method). He believes the other content to be mainly husky. He informed me a large amount of breeders make things that look like wolves through combining malamutes, huskys other things. He believed Kinu does have wolf in her but not much.
Maybe this changes the scenario a bit far as training approach or management. He said alot of the behavior i described here is also common across the norther breed dogs.
She is still responding very well to training. Still in beginning phases of phase 2. She had climb down in 6 min.
He also sternly corrected me and told me that there is no such thing as a wolf hybrid because in 1992 scientists determined that wolves and dogs are the same species and a hybrid is a cross between two different species.
