Introduction

Wolves are majestic animals often portrayed in movies, folklore, and pop culture. But what is a wolf, really? The official name is Canis lupus and is also known as a western wolf, timber wolf, or gray wolf. These are large pack animals that can weigh up to 175 pounds and stand up to 63 inches when standing on their hind feet. They are carnivores that, although they look similar, are not dogs. So, although they may look cute and cuddly, you should not get a wolf for a pet. You can; however, give your dog a name that means wolf.

Dog Name Meaning Wolf Considerations

Choosing a name for your dog is a fun job, but you also want to make sure that you find a name that really fits your cuddly canine companion. Many history books suggest that Native Americans had wolves as pets, but most of these animals are believed to have been part dog and part wolf. Some of these dogs, like the Hare Indian breed, was thought to be part coyote. So, maybe you want to give your dog a name that means wolf because you love wolves, really want your dog to feel like a wolf, or think your dog looks like a wolf.
