Feral traits.


Recommended Posts

My first lurcher was a wild one and showed feral traits for stealing food of any kind and later attacking sheep and almost any livestock but only if you wernt looking or near to him. The only things he couldnt catch were rabbits😀 but if I were living wild I think Id go for mutton, its easier to catch and a lot more meat. He would always escape if he could and go off for days at a time. Never came back thin but he always did come back until one time he didnt, and that was that, and uphill ever since.

things like burying bits of food even when eating with their litter mates, padding their beds down and happily crawling into dark tight spots to sleep, instinctively grabbing anything that go past them, they have that instinct to hunt and kill from a very young age, naturally gravitate towards you as the alpha and want to please you and be around you. 
these are just a few things and obviously other pups will display some of these traits but in general the I have found that ones with that wild dingo wolf way about them invariably make the better workers. 

Interesting observation👏

On the serious side the dog probably was highly intelligent as well but when they detach that far from the owner they are just wolves and worse than useless to us.
