Loki the Wolfdog and Its Owner Share Incredible Adventures
Loki the wolfdog is a hybrid of a Siberian husky, Malamute and Arctic wolf that travels along his owner on epic adventures.
The two-year old Loki and his owner Kelly Lund share great adventures while they travel around the world.
Loki is known as a ‘low-content Wolfdog’ which means he possesses more dog genes than wolf, but has the stature and size of a wolf that would be found in the wild.
Kelly Lund is a passionate traveler and he has taken his best friend with him. He believes that dogs should not be locked or in a leash, so he lets his wolfdog live freely.
Perhaps that’s why the dog is so nice and his owner enjoys taking it with him. Together they have explored mountain passes, lakes and snowy landscapes, which only made the bond between them even stronger.
Kelly, from Colorado, is determined to give his pet the exercise and outdoor lifestyle an animal like this requires. And he was inspired enough to record those moments on camera.
Lund hopes his pictures will inspire others to bond with their dogs and to take them out into the natural landscapes.
The pair is inseparable and they go exploring the great outdoors regularly, with Loki always running free to do what he wants.
Ever since the Outdoor Recreational Co-Coordinator, Lund adopted Loki in 2012, they have been inseparable.
Aware of the dog’s unique breed, Loki did not want to confine the part-wolf to a house, or back garden.
‘Many Wolfdogs end up going to shelters or are put down because owners do not know what they are getting into,’ Lund told MailOnline.
‘They require an extreme amount of socialisation and exercise which most people do not have time for.
‘They can be destructive to a house and escape easily from most backyards. I have had these these hurdles with Loki, and he is even a ‘low-content’ Wolfdog, meaning he is more dog than wolf.’
“I’m often surprised by how much joy animals can bring into our lives. Even more, the joy that comes from healthy relationships with them is really amazing. It seems hard to describe so I typically don’t try.
This reminds me of that couple who adopted a stay cat and went travel the world with it. Remember?
After creating an Instagram page for Loki, the part-wolf has captured the hearts of over 390,000 users, who now follow his travels.
“Loki’s Instagram is really the product of that hard-to-describe emotion. Additionally, I believe dogs aren’t meant to live out their lives in a backyard or inside a house. I hate to see that. I hope we are inspiring people to get out, explore our world, and make memories with their pups.”
