A wolf-dog sings to a baby and surprisingly calms him and stops his cry.
With the babysitter dog singing like that who wouldn’t calm?
a dingo ate my baby
baby or dog?
OMG stuart……classic! ahahahahah
Quigely down under!
Will sing for food.
Funniest thing I’ve read all day.
That is so beautiful. Dogs are so special.
I want one of those!
A dog or a baby?
I have a dog that looks like that who is half Husky, half German shephard. He is a total sook with people but I don’t know if I would trust him around small creatures. The amount of ducks and possums I have seen him catch and eat…
your dog, trust me, would be juts fine around a human child. It isn’t a dumb animal, as you know.
of course it’s not a wolf, but he wouldn’t get as many views if he simply called it a dog now would he?
There is something magical about this video
maybe the dog singing?
I think the baby stopped crying because he was afraid
hahahahahahaha yeah i think so too
this is hilarious, you just make me cry from laughing so hard!!!
Wrong. The baby’s reaction is not fear. The baby is listening and appears to be calmed by the dog’s song.
Don`t think you are smart, cuz you can understand the baby…..
OMG is really that big of a deal?
leave it. It really doesn’t matter.
I’m pretty sure it was a joke.
anon, you should be on stage, i am in pain from laughter ,oh yeah and nice vid
The dog is a Siberian Husky, or a Malamute (a larger variety of husky),and is not a wolf. Huskies do this all the time. “Wolf dog” is a really ignorant title.
Husky indeed. Probably not a Malamute (they are bigger and fluffier). There are so much videos out there where huskies are titled as wolfdogs Pretty normal for a husky to howl like this, by the way
Saying malamutes are a bigger variety of husky is pretty ignorant.
I love the ignorant sounds so cool
That’s ignorant. You guys are ignorant.
why do people like you exist, god, the dog looks like a wolf, that’s why the title is wolf dog, who cares if the dog isn’t named that, my suggestion, never talk again
Obviously you have NEVER seen a Wolf.
Agreed. My neighbors illegally owned dogs that were half wolf and trust me, they looked more wolf than dog. The dog in this video is most likely a Siberian Husky. Could be a Malamute, but from working in a vet clinic, knowing dog breeds since I could talk, and living next to someone with a Husky, I believe it’s a Husky.
They called it a wolf-dog because of the howl. You know…wolves HOWL. Maybe you should think before you write.
… Dogs howl too.
All dogs howl. Maybe you should research before you attempt to one-up someone.
Yeah man, my CHIHUAHUA howls for god’s sakes.
Peace, love and wisdom.
Are you retarded. That dog looks nothing like a wolf. Do you even know what a wolf looks like. Maybe you should look up the difference between a husky and a wolf. They may be common ancestors but they have vastly different coat colours, facial features, and body structure. Not only that but why the hell would any sane person have a wolf near a baby
It howls like a wolf - not looks like one.
no, it howls like any canine of a similar size howls, its not a ‘wolf howl’ its just a ‘howl’
yes, perhaps you could get a horse and go live in the mountains and not bother anyone?
Working at a vet clinic I like to think I know a little something about dogs. That definitely had wolf in it. Ignorance is relative.
You may know a little something about dogs, yet you then go on to say, “That definitely had wolf in it”…….
I suppose you’re right, ignorance is relative.
It’s fairly obvious the poster’s first language isn’t English. Cut them some slack. Do you know the word for “siberian husky” in several languages? I highly doubt it.
lol, technically all dogs are “wolf-dogs”. I mean, dogs are classified as a subspecies of the white wolf. *wooof* *wooooof*
Anyways, sweet vid I <3 dogs. ^_^
is it that big of a deal calling it a wolfdog? totally not the point of the video.
not a mal, i got a mal. that’d be a husky
All I have to say is….
YOU’RE REALLY DUMB.
If you have had one would really know the diff.That is part wolf.
it is not part wolf, i worked wiith wolves and wolf dogs for a year last year in america and that has no wolf in it that I can see, so if it’s there it is very tiny. it doesn’t have wolf eyes, ears feet or body shape.
Thank you…..I love how any dog that howls is a “wolf-dog”.
The ‘wolf dog’ title is wrong!
way to be technical…
Thats exactly what I was thinking. I worked with wolves and wolf dogs for 1 year and that is deffinatley a husky!! looks nothing like a wolf dog
kudos to you sir
what a good dog!
actually dogs howl to cancel out noises that hurt their ears. LOL this dog was annoyed!
DOG IS A HUSKY AS STATED, AND YES THEY ARE VERY VOCAL, NO THE BABY DIDNT POOP ITSELF, GODS CREATURES ARE REALLY MAGICAL IN SO MANY WAYS. MAYBE THE BABY AND THE DOG KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. PROBABLY SMARTER THEN ALL ADULTS.
YES SMARTER THAN ALL ADULTS JUST LIKE GOD SO SMART LIKE YEAH.
they’re definitely smarter “then” you.
you mean than?
I think he had it right the first time. Way to go.
Well I hate to admit it, but you have a point. Dogs are smarter than all adults. The people really in control of the government? All dogs. Hell, every invention over the last 3 centuries were all made by dogs.
It’s a Malamute (no they are not large Huskies).
Malamutes are part wolf and wolves are very family oriented. In the wild even the male dogs babysit. ‘Uncles’ always know how to sing a kid to sleep. LOL
malamutes are a breed of dog, but are no more wolf than a jack russel. do your research before you post.
I have a husky that talks when she’s annoyed. They have a very broad spectrum for expression. When the baby would cry the dog would grumble to wake me up.
Siberian Husky is the breed. Husky is a generalized term used for a lot of those working breeds. I have had Samoyeds for years. The Sammy is not a cross but a breed of it’s own.. can’t say about the others but all of them will howl if allowed some will “talk” or chatter with you. The Sammy came from the Ural mts.. and the natives let the dogs sleep with the babies to help keep them warm.. they are all pack minded and concern humans part of the pack. All great pets if treated kindly and trained thinking in terms of a pack. A wolf or wolf hybrid are amazing animals but still wild and not safe in family environments.
how do you know it isnt a wolf dog. Alot of people that sell wolf dogs cross breed them with huskies.
Wait, what? Are you suggesting that the amount of people who sell wolf dogs is high enough that the subset which specifically sells husky wolf dogs can be described by the term alot? I don’t think wolf dog is even a real term. Wolf-dog hybrid maybe? Though I do agree that if one were to breed a dog with a wolf, Huskies and similar breeds would make a good choice. Whitefang anyone?
Whitefangs are what you get when you crossbreed wolf-dogs and sharks.
Dude, Whitefang is a character in a book. If I remember, he’s either a wolf or a husky. I think he’s a husky.
Dude, don’t even joke like that. My uncle died from a whitefang attack. They hunt in packs in the ocean you know, and they love human flesh.
if you go to america there are a large amount of people selling wolves and wolf dogs. they are not hybrids as the term hybrid is used for the crossing of 2 different species and the wolf and dog belong to the same species. I worked on a sanctuary that used to rescue wolves and wolfdogs that people tried to keep as pets and it does not work as the wolves are wild animals!!! it has taken centuries of breeding to get to the domestic dog so it is very arrogant to think that crossing a wild pure wolf with a husky would make a good pet!!! people that think that really annoy me. for more information on this subject look up http://www.wildspiritwolfsanctuary.org!
WHAT IS THIS??
He or she looks pure husky with no wolf genes in the immediate ancestry. They retain wolf traits though and are superb parents. It’s a shame that posts like this draw such ignorant comments. Dogs are intelligent, more so than some posters here and knew how to quiet a fussy baby. What a great dog!
I agree with you!! What a beautiful husky and she/he knew exactly what to do to quiet the baby down. I have had three Siberian Huskies and they are an excellent companion and very loyal to the family! I loved this so much, I had to play it over again!!!
not a wolf
im pretty sure the wolf is like calling to his heard that he found lunch..
wolf dog? is this written by some chinese person? what a preposterosity
Wolf-dog is in fact a shortened term for a wolf dog hybrid. People often mistake them for Siberian Huskies or Malamutes as they have a couple of similar features (and people assume that makes them all the same), however a wolf dog looks just like it sounds; like a cross between a wolf and a dog. Mine happens to have the long muzzle, overall structure, and coloring of a wolf, but is much smaller. Only about 60 lbs at a year old. Do I think the dog in the video is a wolf or wolfdog? No. Just because you are ignorant about something, though, does not mean it doesn’t exist.
On another note, preposterosity? Really? You’re the one questioning someone’s grasp of the English language? Congratulations!!
it is not a hybrid as wolves and dogs belong to the same species and the term hybrid relates to the crossing of animals from different species like a lion and a tiger to get a “Liger” and the offspring are infertile.
If we want to get technical… The Wolf and Domesticated Dog are the same species (Canis lupus), however as the Dog belongs in its own specific sub-species (Canis lupus familiaris). Although considered genetically compatible, interbreeding would still be classified as hybridisation as breeding is occurring between the wild and domestic variants of a species. This is high school biology stuff. Same goes for wild and domestic horses.
cute, yet scary.
it could be a Wolf HYBRID
It would look like a wolf then
no such thing as a wolf dog hybrid as they belong to the same species and “hybrid” means the crossing of different species.
this is without any daught an alaskan malamute. they do not have anything to do with husky. i know i breed them in europe. big dogs should not be left with small children that is a fact. but malamute is a dog also works with autistic children so they do not bite humans but are very agressive with other male dogs.
doubt not daught would be better understood.
“but malamute is a dog also works with autistic children so they do not bite humans”
Really? Are you kidding me? This is what you have to bring to the table?
Stop breeding dogs
“big dogs should not be left with small children that is a fact.”
unless another dog was holding the camera the dog was not left with the kid. Plus if the dog has bonded with the baby it dose not really matter, the baby is in the safest place in the world, just try to hurt it and see what would happen.
stumbled from NY cute vid
yes it was
Don’t you love how on every video on the internet, whether it be dancing chipmunks or a “wolf dog” singing a baby to sleep, there has to be people debating/arguing over some aspect of the video. Just watch it people, just watch it.
The baby is probably laying low so the dog doesn’t eat him.
@vladimir g. lol “daught” haa
chill out guys. by the looks of it the OP is using English as their second language.
in response to Cara17 I to have observed that people speak just because they are bored as HELL!!!
I like the title so stop commenting on the portion of “wolf dog” geez
since you are commenting, i take it that your response should say: myself included in regards to the bored as hell comment.
“i will eat you if you don’t shut up!”
The baby is part of the dog’s pack.
Yes, I agree : people have to ruin things by swearing, being crude, & arguing. So uncool…..The dog’s evidently a superior creature to most of the human animals here.
I like people like you, your like me, you like putting other people down, while trying to make yourself seem good.
stop being so self righteous, jen.
Go to hell, Bob.
hahahaha amazing… i love how everyone just got into an internet argument for nothing at all. it was pretty funny actually.
This is nuts… who would let this kind of animal near their baby? The kid is probably traumatized on a primal level.
Maybe you should put the camera down and cater to your kid.
you guys are all homosapiens!
I’m going to have to side with the people saying the dog is calming the child. I have a chow/boxer mix (and no, he doesn’t eat people out of hand) and with both of our children he has accepted them wholly as part of the pack. When they were young we put them near him on the floor (with myself between them at first) and he sniffed them, then curled up around them. I’d hate to see a stranger come into the house and try to touch either one of them lol.
It really moved me. Beautiful!
Thx 4 uploading it
I’ve impersonated a vet before so i can confindently assure you that this is in fact a Sasquatch Husky, more commonly known as a beardog. Unlike wolfdogs these actually hibernate and prefer a low-baby diet.
omg u are hilarious
absolutely the best comment I’ve read on this whole page.
Oh please Mr Vet Sir, my armadillobear has a thorn in his fin…
Nice post, definite win.
great vid! all you ppl arguing about the wolf-dog thing, grow up! Next you’ll be arguing that Beetles are not from Germany or London! GEEZ! LMAO!
I’m thinking you did that just to see if people would start arguing again.
you people are arguing over what breed the dog is…. when this person is RECORDING their baby crying and not doing anything about it….LOL.
The kid looked fine to me. Parents who rush to a kid at every slight noise they make is not a good thing.
Video has a watermark on the lower left that says “elrellano.com”, so whoever posted it here probably doesn’t speak English fluently.
However, it’s still possible that the dog in the video does have wolf in it’s ancestry, but probably 2-4 generations ago. If it was an actual half-wolf hybrid, the wolf features would be much more pronounced.
As for the specifics of the breed, regardless of it’s wolf ancestry that’s an Alaskan Malamute. Siberian Huskies have longer, shaggier coats (even in summer), while Malamutes have smoother, thinner coats.
Both breeds, and wolves, being pack animals, it’s entirely logical the dog was howling to calm the baby. Especially if the dogs were raised as puppies by the child’s parents. The dogs would see the humans as the alpha’s of their ‘pack’. It would be instinctive for them to care for the child.
On the other hand, dogs often howl at police sirens because the high pitch hurts their ears (they have a higher range of hearing than humans), so it’s also possible the dog was howling because the baby’s cry was uncomfortable for the dog.
Either way, dogs are great. Man’s best friend indeed.
The dog was most likely howling to calm it, he howled for a while after the baby stopped crying. :’) so cute.
Amazing, so cool, both the dog and the baby.
High-frequency sounds like a baby’s crying can sound like the far-off howling of another dog, which prompts the dog to howl back. It just so happens that the howling was low and soothing and sedentary to the infant. Baby stops crying, dog stops howling.
Maybe it should just be left as “Canis sings to a little baby to stop his cry” I feel like that would solve a lot of this nonsense
What a good doggie!!!!!
Baby cries make my ears hurt. I’ve been known to howl too.
stumbled from melbourne, love to see such magic…and the bickering that ensues.
props to cuzzy for this post!
Iâ€™ve impersonated a vet before so i can confindently assure you that this is in fact a Sasquatch Husky, more commonly known as a beardog. Unlike wolfdogs these actually hibernate and prefer a low-baby diet.
love the internet!
Did anyone understand the video?
yeah dude i really “got it”…. so deep.
OMG THAT IS HILARIOUSSSSSSS!
I especially love the ending! Dogs and children are symbols that the world is not all cruel and harsh…
You guys, why does it even matter what type of breed this dog is? This is the most ridiculous argument I’ve ever heard in my life.
How about this….it’s a dog, and it’s howling to a little kid to stop the kid crying. Pretty incredible, even if it is a wolf, malamute, husky or whatever else.
the guy stops the dog by alerting it, then hits the baby crib with the camera trying to get a close up of the baby.
this video could work if the family didn’t try so hard filming this for americas funniest home videos
the 2nd part of the video is the baby quieting the dog
Wolf dog? Are you serious? Come on, educate yourself.
I would just like to add that, in my professional opinion, which is vast for reason a,b,c and d, that this is neither a wolf dog or a huskie. It is, in fact, a man bear pig, and it is going to GET YOU! Oh, and make babies stop crying.
Feel free to begin your debate. However, I want you all to know that no matter what you comment, you are wrong. And I will point that out to you by exposing your bad grammar and typing skills if I have no real proof.
Thank you, and god save us all from this creature.
That’s not a wolf. That’s a husky. Thanks and have a nice day.
i grew up with a wolf as a kid and she was the gentlest thing, so people who say they don’t make good pets or shouldn’t be allowed around children don’t know what they are talking about.
No you didn’t. Any full-blooded wolf would have been taken away from your family. Wolves are awesome, but they are dangerous.
i am afraid i do as having worked with them. u probably grew up with a low content wolf dog and were told it was a “wolf” wolves can not be obedience trained, house trained and are highly destructive! i am sory but your wolf was not a pure wolf.
What’s up with the rubber chicken on the floor?!
Literally raised by wolves…has anyone said that joke yet?
Beautiful. I had a wolf, Nequea for 10 years as a most loved companion. I miss her song.
Forget the video. This is the most entertaining / ridiculous ensuing argument(s) to a video I have ever read. Thank you stumble
You’re so damn right
Nice dog, it’s a Malamute, not a wolf-anything. They are known for taking care of children.
the baby is probably scared that’s why he stopped crying.
This is the cutest thing I’ve seen in a while.
The dog then proceeded to devour the baby whole
Why cant all dogs, or pets for that matter be amazing and should I say loving like that and Smart yeah add that to the list
this is why i love dogs
There are dog breeds that are part wolf. Czechoslovakian Wolfdog and the Saarloos Wolfhond. Yes Wolfhond is spelled correctly. I think it is German for ‘Wolf Hound’. The breed in the video is definitely Siberian Husky. The National Wolfdog Alliance recognizes the breed as Wolf-like. However, there is no trace of wolf in the breed.
not sure which one i would rather hear at night…oh btw ROTFLMMFAO @ the guys arguing about the breed of dog . i laugh good.
I wonder if the baby not crying is actually an evolutionary response - it was probably a bad idea to signal your presence when there were wolves around. Maybe the babies who stopped crying when they heard strange noises grew up to make more babies. Just a thought.
well thiss definetly is a gifted dog and im inspired to get one
It’s not a wolfdog, wolf hybrid, or any established breed of wolf-dog cross.
Looks a bit bulky for a husky, honestly. Could be a mal.
When my twin brother Remus and I were born, our jealous uncle made our human mother abandon us on the banks of the Tiber. We were raised by a kindly female wolf, but when we grew up, I had to kill my brother. Why? Legend will tell you it was because we quarreled over the boundaries of the new city we were founding, and my brother dissed me by leaping over the walls my friends and I were building for the new city.
Other legends claim I killed him because “Reman Empire” just wouldn’t have sounded right.
Both legends are false. Now the truth can be told. I killed him because everytime Mom howled at us to put us to sleep, stupid Remus, instead of quieting down, would howl back at her. Twenty years of growing up without a single decent night’s sleep can make ANYBODY, even one of us demigods, get pretty cranky after awhile.
