Basic Instincts


Here is another story which supports the idea that your dog is 99% wolf under the surface.

When Jan Griffith's dog "Sophie Tucker" (a grey and black cattle dog) was washed overboard from a yacht off the east coast of Australia she thought that it was gone for ever. However, Shophie Tucker had survived, swimming over five nautical miles through shark infested seas to a mainly uninhabited island. Here she suvived for more than four months by using basic wolf like instincts.

Faced with starvation, the dog reverted to these basic instincts to hunt and eat wild goats so that when she was discovered by park rangers the dog was fit and healthy. The rangers initially considered the animal to be a wild dog and when first captured the dog was very wild and ferocious. It would not let anyone near it and refused any food offered.

After several weeks contact was established between the park rangers and Jan Griffith which resulted in the dog being returned.

Jan Griffith approached the reunion with some apprehension but when she called the dog, it started whimpering and jumping about in the transporter cage. On release it raced over to it's owner jumping and wriggling around like a mad thing - all hostility gone.

Sophie Tucker quickly readjusted back to life at home and now nobody would know that she was temporarly an efficient hunter killer on a remote island of Queensland.

So there you are, the dog had to have these wolf like instincts to survive.
