We currently have Havik, a Plott Hound with a little bit of another breed in him, and Rokit, who is part Terrier and part unknown. I say it's wolf, I call him "Wolf Dog".
Both were born in 2002, we adopted them from different shelters in 2003, after loosing our 3 previous dogs to old age in 2002.
They are very devoted to us. We've had a few problems with Havik, he is so protective that he will attack anyone who comes near any of us or the house. Once he gets to know a person he's your best friend. He seems to have an inner sense in that he can tell bad people from good. Anyone who wants to date my daughter must pass the Havik test first (I'm serious. He so disliked one guy that no matter what we did I could not bring the dog into the room with this guy. Havik would literally tear him apart). Kind of funny when he's asleep next to us on the bed on his back with his paws sticking up in the air.
Rokit is high energy and very affectionate, and beats up his big brother daily.
Please consider adopting your next dog from a shelter. There's lots of dogs waiting for a happy home.
