Hello, I'm new to this community and to livejournal.
I thought I should introduce myself, so here I am... introducing myself O_O
First off, my name is Briony, I'm 18 and from England.
My obsession of wolves started when I was very young, but I became much more ardent on the topic of wolves when I was around 11 or 12 years old - I was (and still am) inlove (when in love I mean completely and utterly crazy) with Siberian Huskies. Through reading the history of the sibe and how they came to creation, I studied more and more of the wolf.
Now, I read as much as I can on wolves (though, sorry to say, I'm not a fan of fiction). I was fortunate enough to meet and have a chat with Shaun Ellis about a year ago (if you are not familiar with him, I advise you look him up!). At the time I wanted a career working in Wolf Conservation. Though my feelings towards that career have changed, I still want to volunteer at conservation sites across America in the future, as a yearly hobby.
My life is about dogs. Siberian Huskies, Seppala Siberian Sleddog, Canadian Eskimo Dog (Qimmig), MacKenzie River Husky, Native American Indian Dog, Tamaskan Dog, Northern Inuit Dog, Utonagan. These are just a few breeds that I adore and have read much about. I've mentioned these because some, not all though, may appeal to anyone who loves wolves for their looks.
None of these are hybrids (although, some come pretty close...only separated by a couple of generations sometimes), some are more closely related to a Newfoundland than a Husky, but I wanted to share the names, just incase you take a fancy.
Also, on a separate note, if you are knowledgeable on dogs and are in a position to own large active breeds, then a couple of the dog breeds mentioned above could do with your help. They're in recovery from near extinction due to crossbreeding for centuries. Now, they are bringing back the numbers. Help out only if you are able to.
Please feel free to add me. It would be nice to get to know people on livejournal, as currently I know no-one!
Happy Trails xx
