Woman Sees Ad For Cute “Puppy” And Buys The Puppy, But It Wasn’t A Puppy At All

An Oklahoma woman got excited when she saw a newspaper ad for “super-socialized wolf hybrid” puppies, selling for just $300 each.

Having heard about how adorable wolf-dogs are as pets, she impulsively responded to the ad and ended up buying a beautiful amber-eyed pup. She named the puppy Trigger, and began raising him with utmost dedication and care.

While the woman instantly forged a strong bond with Trigger, she soon realized that the super-energetic puppy was quite a handful in terms of being domesticated.

At just 5 months, Trigger had aggressively chewed off a bedroom wall out of frustration. He was also excessively dominant with his docile senior doggie sibling, and had to be kept in a wire cage while his owner was away.

The woman noticed that Trigger never meant harm, but only felt overpowered by his fierce instincts.

She ended up doing extensive research on wolf-dogs, and realized that the ones with high wolf DNA content don’t really belong in a home.

The woman was heartbroken as she realized she had to part ways with Trigger, even though she loved him a lot.

The woman contacted “W.O.L.F Sanctuary”, a sanctuary that is dedicated to caring for wolves and wolf-dogs. Trigger was soon brought to the sanctuary and given his own enclosure.

After adjusting with a couple of furry playmates, Trigger found a best friend in Spartacus, another new rescue.

As the months passed by, Trigger settled well in his picturesque forever home. Surrounded by friends just like him, he embraced his wild explorer spirit.

The woman, who still likes to be called Trigger’s mommy, was amazed when she saw her big baby flourishing at the sanctuary – and she knew she had done right by him!

10 of the Smartest Dogs in the World:


A friend of mine has a beautiful Dalmatian. Friendly, energetic and lovable, she was a perfect family pet… but she wasn’t the smartest pooch on the planet. See, she knew how to go through the pet door out into the garden, but she had no clue how to get back inside. It never occurred to her that the flap could swing both ways. So she would sit outside and howl until my friend would open the door.

Repeated demonstrations of the dual movement of the flap had no effect; it just did not compute. The dog breeds on this list, however, probably don’t have that problem. They’re widely considered to be among the cleverest canines in the world. Take a look and see if you agree.

1. German Shepherd

No surprise here. German Shepherds are the world’s best police dogs, military dogs, and some have even been movie stars (remember Rin Tin Tin?). Brave, loyal, smart and strong, they’re the total package.

2. Beagle

Also on the list of the best family-friendly dogs in the world, the Beagle has an incredible nose that lets them sniff out just about anything. Born detectives, they’re not the most trainable pets, but they are smart. And hey, nobody ever accused Snoopy of being dumb.

3. Golden Retriever

A popular choice for assistance dogs for their easy temperament, natural intelligence and loyalty, Golden Retrievers are natural guides and also serve as great rescue dogs. Active and fun to be around, they’re wonderful family pets.

4. Border Collie

Border Collies are considered by many to be the geniuses of the dog world. Expert herders, laser-focused (they’re known for their intense stare), and incredibly agile to boot, they’re workaholics and excellent athletes. Just don’t expect to keep one cooped up in an apartment.

5. Poodle


Did you know poodles were originally hunting dogs? They respond very well to training and are quick to learn tricks. So don’t let the fluffy looks and styled mane fool you! These dogs are among the smart canines around. Plus, they’re among the best dogs in the world for those who suffer allergies.

6. Belgian Malinois


A terrific military dog, the Malinois is a natural herder, tracker and worker. Smart, trainable and protective, these dogs require an owner who knows what he or she is doing. In addition to the military, Malinois are often recruited as guard dogs and police dogs as well.

7. Papillon

Named for their butterfly-shaped ears, papillons are small, cute and pretty smart. They’re considered the smartest of the toy dog breed, with intelligence levels comparable to the über-smart border collie. They’re alert and focused pets, and loyal and lovable: an ideal friend for he family.

8. Doberman


Sadly, Dobermans are known more for their ferocity than their smarts, but these are considered among the most intelligent dogs in the world, as well as one of the most effective guard dogs around. They’re outstanding students known to be affectionate and obedient.

9. Bloodhound

Don’t let the wrinkles and dopey expression fool you! Bloodhounds have the keenest of noses, and are often used for trailing (so much so that their evidence can be used in court against you!). These are loving but strong-willed dogs, and are often used on search and rescue missions.

10. Australian Cattle Dog

You need a smart, determined and energetic dog to control unruly cows. And that’s just what the Australian Cattle Dog, or ACD, does. They’re intelligent enough to herd these much larger creatures, and while they need their independence and wide open spaces, they’re eager workers who know how to get the job done.
