Little Corgi and Wolf Puppy Meet for the First Time

When a little Corgi named Cordi met Lorne, a lanky wolf cub for the first time through Camels and Friends in July 2014, the older dog was understandably confused and perhaps even annoyed by the high energy puppy who was rolling around on the grass in front of him. Eventually, however, Cordi warmed up to Lorne and the two of them became fast friends, running around the house together.

Lorne, a grey wolf, has been chosen to be an animal ambassador to help educate the public about his breed.

Lorne is a ten week old (in this video) high content wolfdog. He was born at a zoo in Georgia who breeds a select number of wolf cubs to be used for educational purposes and for ambassadors for their species. Lorne’s brother, Wyatt can be seen at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, California. Lorne is being raised with the hope of using him in educational talks to raise awareness for an often misunderstood animal. Lorne is a subspecies of the Grey (or Timber) Wolf. He was born in April (wolves are only born in the spring, unlike domesticated dogs) and until he came to me was used in meet-and-greets at the Georgia zoo.
