Hello, my 13 year old daughter has set her heart on a dog that looks like a wolf, pointy ears a must, simply because she is absolutely loves wolves and has never has had her own puppy. Isobel and I want a happy loving home, but she wants a dog that looks "wolf-like" and is not "small". This will be her dog. The problem I am finding about Huskies, her favorite, is the prey instinct which could be a major problem for our 3 year cat. The cat is male, and used to getting alot of attention from me. He keeps his distance from my daughter, because when he was young, she treated him like a puppy. Not great from a cat point of view. He is territorial although he has been spade and only has back claws, so also a house cat. Can anyone give me suggestions for a mix breed or what I should be looking for. Girl? Boy? Are there any personality traits of the parents I should look for? How old of a puppy for maximal bonding with my daughter and cuteness factor, but to deal with the cat?Percy the cat is very affectionate and acts like a dog in that he follows me around the house, always wants to sit and lay on me and is very connected to everything that is going on. Very curious, very loving, very involved. The cat might try to be the alpha, but I am not sure that will go over with any dogs of the wolf breed. I dont want to keep them separate or worry the dog will kill the cat. Any and all suggestions would be helpful. I am new to dogs.
