Loki is a ‘wolfdog’, which means he is a Siberian Husky/Malamute/Arctic wolf hybrid. While he is fully trained and can offer the same companionship as any other domestic pooch, he has the large size and stature you might expect of a wolf.

But having such a special pooch doesn’t come without its own challenges. Speaking to The Weather Channel, Kelly said, “Wolfdogs can be very destructive to a house, escape easily from a yard and be extremely timid and nervous around people. They require an extreme amount of exercise and socialization that most people do not have time for.”

Kelly is hoping that the growing popularity of Loki’s Instagram page will help to increase awareness of the problems faced by wolfdogs in the US. Many are put up for adoption when unprepared owners are unable to train them properly or to deal with the additional challenges that come with having a wolfdog as a pet. Here are a few more of our favourite photos from Loki and Kelly.
