The French animal and wildlife authorities, namely theCITESand theONCFSconsider the dogs to be"wolf hybrids".According to them, owning these "wild" animals is illegal. And their solutionis to euthanise the five dogs.
It is important to know that there are three breedsof wolf dog: the Sarloos,theCzechoslovakian and the American wolf dog.The first two breeds are recognised inFrance,but the American one is not.Therefore Snow, Zaltana, Shaïma, Ghost andGrael are considered unknown and wild, and they arebeing condemned to death for it.
But these wolf dogs are in no way wild creatures. They have never caused anyone any harm and they pose abolutely no danger, they're just pets who want to be loved like any other. "Not one escape, not one bite, not one attack", outlinesthepetitiondemanding their freedom.
These are affectionate animals who live in family homes and act like any other dog breed in the world.Zaltana and Shaïma were born in America and arrived in France legally in June 2012 whilstGhost andGraelwere bred and adopted legally in 2014.
The footage of them cuddling and playing with their humans is enough to prove why these dogs should not be euthanised.
