Fidgie, the Wolfdog
The fishmonger in Carnoles has a new young dog. She's 12 months old and is called Fidgie. He spent most of the time we were talking throwing her heads of fish.
He told me she is a Wolf and he had to wait a long time to get her from a special breeder. He insists she is pure Wolf but to me she looks mostly German Sheepdog Dog with perhaps a bit of Wolf mixed in. He told me she's not an easy breed. He also told me that Wolves only come into season once in their life, hence his long wait for a puppy.
I gather that Wolf hybrids are now classified as Wolfdogs and that would seem to be what Fidgie is and probably what the fishmonger meant, with me misunderstanding his French.
