Amazon Hot New Pet Book -- Part Wild: One Woman's Journey with a Creature Caught Between the Worlds of Wolves and Dogs by Ceiridwen Terrill
Many of us who love our dogs are also fascinated by their relative, the wolf. What would it be like to have a dog-wolf hybrid? Part Wild: One Woman's Journey with a Creature Caught Between the Worlds of Wolves and Dogs by Ceiridwen Terrill tells the tale of the author's adoption and life with a wolfdog--part husky, part gray wolf--named Inyo.
Apparently she picked a wolf-dog hybrid to protect herself from an abusive ex-boyfriend who was stalking her, but may have bit off more than she could chew. If you are romantic about the nature of wolves as many of us are, this book likely will relieve you of that fantasy.
In her quest to understand the differences between domesticated dogs and wild wolves, Terrill did spend five years interviewing genetics experts, wolf biologists, dog trainers, and wolf rescuers in the United States, Germany, Hungary, Sweden, and Russia. An informative and moving animal saga, this book is honest and straightforward and will leave you much more appreciative of your own dog.
