Welcome to Cottonwoods
The name "Cottonwoods" comes from our large trees that provide shade from the heat and line our creek.
Located in North Central Texas we are advocates for responsible ownership and have been involved with Lupine animals for over 12 years.

In 1994 I met my Brothers Wolfdog "Niki" and I was hooked.
He was not a breeder, but one day I saw an ad in the paper for puppies. I was excited to finally find one, as I thought they were rare. Like most purchasing their first wolfdog I didn't get my moneys worth. I had no idea what to look for in a Wolfdog puppy, what to look for in a breeder, what registrations were reputable, and of course no health screens were done on the Sire/Dam. I was blinded by my love for him and it took me a bit to see he was not what he was represented to be - In other words, I learned the hard way.

I went through the same stages as most, wanting the highest content I could legally own, etc. I eventually came to the realization that I wanted more than a pretty animal that spent it's life in a kennel.

We then started selectively breeding dogs for Wolfy traits. None of our animals are the offspring of anything wild, and we are not producing wolf/dog crosses.

At Cottonwoods, our animals contribute to our community through volunteer work with Cancer Support, Hospice, Deer Recovery, Search & Rescue, local E-collar trainings, etc. 
For several years we have tried to combat misrepresentation through Buyer Beware advertising, and pass on some of the lessons we have learned. 

Our education is continuous and we still enjoy observation of Pack Dynamics (hierarchical social structure) and interaction with wolfy looking canines.

This site is basically a collection of my previous Wolfdog information and my current and past animals.
I have valued the guidance of others and this webpage is a place to share my past experiences, I hope that you will find some of the information useful. 
On the internet you will meet many different types of people. Some advise comes from those who have researched everything they can get their hands on but may not have an ounce of common sense or actual experience. We have read and enjoyed quite a few books and articles, but our pages/opinions are not based on "book-smarts", they are formed from personal experiences, several years of rescue, discussions with new friends, and valued friendships with "old timers" - individuals who have many years of experience (over 20 yrs).
It will be painfully obvious to the reader I was absent the day schools taught spelling, grammar, and punctuation :-) 
That is a joke for those who missed it, but seriously, please do not send me emails correcting my webpages, because I really don't obsess about those things.
I have also tried to design my pages where they look right in settings of 800x600 and 1024x768 (best) screen resolution.

I am often asked if we breed, I am a "Breeder" but had not generally sold pups, especially over the internet. Our page has not been updated for some time now, as we have become discouraged with the lack of quality homes - we will not be breeding 2010. 

If you like something please link to it. BASICally I have had problems with an individual taking my work. Thank You.
