Hey, I'm bit new on this board, but it would be nice if you guys would help me out.
I'm looking to buy a Czechoslovakian Wolfdog. It doesn't have to be pure breed, but I would like a dog that resembles him as much as possible.
I've only saw people selling puppies for 500 EUR, and I don't have that kind of money.
I could shill out maximally 100 EUR for the little guy.
If anybody who lives in Slovakia, or nearby, ( or knows a place that could ship me one) could tell me where I could get one for about 100 EUR, I would be most thankful.
(I'll leave this thread going for a day, and then come back. Thanks everybody)
If you can't save up 500 euros, then there's no way you could pay for the vet bills for a medical emergency. I'm not even sure if could pay for food and routine shots and yearly checkups for him. One large dog costs at least $50 a month to feed I the US.
It's cool that you want a dog. But at the moment, you do not have the proper means to take care of one. So if you truly do love them, please make the right decision and wait until you are in a better place financially.
Not really defending op, but I hate how people assume if you can't afford to buy a purebred animal, that means you don't have vet or general care money. I always make sure I can afford an animal before I buy it. I just find it hard to get over the "sticker shock" of the initial price.
>For 15 euro I can buy groceries for myself for one week.
sure you can but it'll be shit quality food or an unbalanced unhealthy diet.
>Getting surgery is little bit different than getting a shot for a dog.
you know dogs can have surgeries too? what are you gonna do when your friend thinks that you leeched off of him enough and wants to make you pay? what if your dog gets chronically sick and needs medication?
good luck, this is an extremely expensive and rare breed that pretty much only exists in Europe. You're better off trying to get a Sarloos wolfdog or a Tamaskan. Also they're an expensive breed to take care of. Kind of like a more fine tuned, prestigious GSD or any other Northern Breed. They eat, A LOT. Gotta buy them big bags of food.
oh wow can't believe i missed that. Still, don't you have to be recognized by some sort of breeders society to buy one of these dogs anyway? If op wants a dog that looks like a wolf (kinda, not really tho) but acts like a dog, then he/she's probably better off getting a Tamaskan. They're more common and less pricey
i haven't heard that you would have to be in any kind of breeders society. They might sell some dogs with great potential with a contract, that he/she has to be taken to conformation shows, and take part of a breeding program if succeeds thought, but that is definitely not the standard.
The dog school i go to here has a czechoslovakian wolfdog, he's kind of a bitch, since his instincts are stronger even at 7 months old(which will get worse because of the wolf blood), so it kinda sucks for the owner, eventhough she is coming every time. I'm kinda jelly
>which will get worse because of the wolf blood
what do you mean by this? Czechoslovakians aren't wolf dog mixes they're a distinct breed of dog. Do you mean because they're closer to wolves genetically due to the breeds origins from GSD-Wolf mixes, that the dog has temperament issues (similar to other Northern breeds bred from Wolfdogs such as GSDs)?
>After initially breeding working line German Shepherd Dogs with Carpathian wolves (Canis lupus lupus), a plan was worked out to create a breed that would have the temperament, pack mentality, and trainability of the German Shepherd Dog and the strength, physical build, and stamina of the Carpathian wolf.
So yeah, now they don't have wolf parents, but they pretty much did in the beginning
yeah, i know that the breed starts with wolves and wolfdogs but it was my understanding that the wolf like traits such as severe temperament issues and aggression were not present in the breed to a noticeable degree.
If you can't afford that, why do you think you can afford permits and vet bills? It sounds like you have an EXTREMELY, and let me say EXTREMELY fucking minimal understanding of wolfdogs. I'm not gonna bother reading the rest of the thread but I'm gonna hope it involved you realizing you should kill yourself instead of forcing an animal to suffer.
>15 EUR a month to feed him
What were you feeding him? Jesus Christ.
