Lincoln, NE (AP) - The owner of an unusual wolf hybrid dog has found a temporary home for his pet outside Lincoln city limits.
The Lincoln Journal Star says Alex Kaftan's dog, Mars, is living at a Raymond farm. Last week a judge denied Kaftan's motion to let the dog remain in Lincoln. City officials say wolf-dog crossbreeds are barred by Lincoln ordinance.
Kaftan says Mars is a Czechoslovakian vlcak (VUHL'-chak), a special breed that originated with the 1955 crossing between German shepherds and Carpathian wolves.
Kaftan says he plans further legal action to bring Mars back to his home in Lincoln.
