I'm glad you got him back.
I've had two Wolf/Xs in my life. Mingo was Mal/Wolf rescued at a little over 5 wks old. WAY too young ~ but my boys grew up with him and he was wonderful in each and every way. He was with us for 14 years and I miss him to this day. He was fine with larger livestock but not with smaller or with birds of any type. I worked around it.
Boozhoo was Saint/Collie/Wolf. My Dear Heart.
Again, his life on earth was 14 years. Another rescue who was saved at an early age from certain death by a kind neighbor of the people who had him and his siblings. He was fantastic with all living things. Perhaps the St/Collie in his heritage. He worked ever so well with the Pyrs too.
Both these boys had one heavy shedding a year and always in August. It was with Mingo that I first started spinning. With the Pyrs I'm in constant "Spinning Paradise".
The brushing is a labor of love.
Watch and monitor your Babe at all times. He's not a tiny puppy so you don't know yet his whole personality. As People Whisperer says, it doesn't hurt to have the AB close at hand ~ but you'll no doubt have a lot of "floss" floating around on top.
