wolf hybrid percentages

Bear with me..I asked this somewhere else and got bitched at for asking it on a formun that wasnt for wolfdogs (even though I was in the general and off topic section) and was givem a whole scientific spill about genes, which I didn't need..

hoping my lovely people on my favourite forum can help some..

a friend had wolf hybrid pups..dam is 50% mexican gray wolf, 25% german shep, 25% collie. Sire is 50% Chow and 50% Timber wolf.
Generally speaking, without going into genetic makeup too far, what percentage of everything is the litter?

I hope someone understands what I'm asking :)

The litter will be 100% canine

Unfortunately it is impossible to say which traits will follow which animal without knowing the extreme specifics.

Mathematically, they would be 25 % grey wolf, 25% chow, 25% timber wolf, 12.5% GSD, 12.5% collie. So 50% wolf.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Thanks, that's what I was looking for. I figured it out shortly after posting this but I couldn't figure out how to delete a post. I know they're 100% mutts, but I was curious as to what 'percentages' they will be sold as, no matter which genes they actually inherited. It's much like people saying they're 1/16th Apache or 1/4th Irish, no matter what their genetic makeup may really be..that's how 'wolfdog' breeders price and sell their pups.

25% of the litter will carry the dams genes
25% of the litter will carry the sires genes
50% will be a make up of 25% mexican gray wolf, 12 1/2% german shep, 12 1/2% collie. Sire is 25% Chow and 25% Timber wolf in some shape, form or fashion

Sound like a mutt with a some wolf in it.

I would not pay anything for a wolf mutt I don't think they should be bred at all in the first place.

Why would anyone breed a chow chow to a wolf that's a dangerous mix.

100Gal Cichlid tank, 80 Gal planted Community, 20Gal planted Betta, 7gal planted Betta, 20gal goldfish grow out. Yeah I like fish.

Lol, I think she mentioned to one of the buyers that the Chow was bred into the wolf because all the other mixes usually bred in (German Shep, Husky, etc.) all have tall pointed ears and it's hard to breed the ears back down to the shorter rounded shape wolves are supposed to have.

I think anyone that is looking to get a wolf-dog wants the wolf in there.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

I've always wondered how many wolf-hybrids end up in sanctuaries or being euthanised. I have owned big dogs all my life, and I would still be very uncomfortable with having a part wild animal of that size in my house.

I don't even think Australia will let savannah cats into the country and yet in some places in America you can own a lion or tiger. Insane.
