The people on the NCSU forum like him too:
I just told my wife to check out the new mascot. Her reply - "Um, that's a real wolf." LOL

And they think he's a wolfdog.
Is that a real wolf or some wolf-dog combo?

The only annoying part is that, in the video, they call him a German Shepherd X Husky mix... he's a real TAMASKAN!!! :D

This was only a trial run though, right? Any idea when we'll know for sure if Wave got the job?

Wave had a GRAND time! He was not afraid of the crowd or the noises. He was his typical laid back self. I think if he continues he will get more comfortable & be a lil' more interactive with the crowd. Before a commitment is made both parties want to make sure Wave is a good fit. We feel comfortable with him attending the games....now we have 2 get the feedback on how the crowds & school felt about his attendance. Live input says he was a HUGE success. I also did not like the fact that he was not referred as a Tamaskan. I think this is a temporary reference, though, because of the RPK situation. I will let everyone know any feedback I receive from NCSU!!!!

Im so glad to hear Wave had a laid back attitude to the game. I too hope with time he will be comfortable and look forward to the attention he gets at games and become more involved.
I still see there is upset about live mascots in general and although under normal circumstances I would agree, I am 100% confident that Wave has a fantastic home life and he isn't dragged out a kennel to attend the game and then dragged back again. This is a very positive outcome for the NCSU, I don't care if they never mention Wave is a Tamaskan, im just pleased that its him :) Go Wolfpack :)

I agree..
And if they don't mention him as being a Tamaskan dog, it will not make people want a Tamaskan because of that, and then people will not find RPK as an easy alternativ.

They were excellent on allowing Wave to come & go on the field as necessary. They new certain noises might startle him & had him leave the field during those times too.

BTW
Some of the comments by the cheerleaders & others that interacted with the RPK dog:
she was scared (she being Roxy)
she acted weird &/or out of place
small not near as big as Wave
not as wolfie as Wave
she looked more like a dog

Overall, Wave did much better than Roxy in all areas

Well done Wave!! (And you too Lisa ;) )
I was hoping to find out last night but went to bed straight after Cindy's 1st training class, feeling rough. First thing I thought of this morning was "Who was it?" & "How did he do?"

Loving the positive comments. Probably a good thing he's not referred to as a Tam just yet as people might think he's just another RPK dog. Let's educate some more people on puppy mills and build Wave's fan base. ;)

Good luck with the feedback, fingers crossed for you all.

We are so excited and proud of Wave, The New Tuffy. Lisa and Joe did a outstanding job raising and training him to be an excellent represntitive out the Tamaskan Dog Breed. Tuffy is great for the school and for all of us. We should support Tuffy regardless of who our school alliances are with.
Joe did a great job handling Tuffy. You were like the the Waterboy for Tuffy. Anytime Tuffy was thrirstly, Joe was there to make sure he has some high quality H2O. GO WOLFPACK, Go Tuffy, Go Waterboy. lol

Congratulations guys and a great big thanks should go to EVERYONE who helped and supported our campaign to get Rightpuppy mill out of the public eye. You all did a grand job and should give yourselves a pat on the back, you may just have saved a few puppies lives.
Also a big thanks to all the NCSU students who contacted the TDR to offer their support and their opinions on which dog was the most Wolfy looking.....(It was always Wave)
And of course thank you to Waves owners who seemed to have dropped everything at the last minute to help support the Tamaskan breed
And finally the BIGGEST thank you to Wave who did an outstanding job of showing how laid back and friendly the Tamaskan really are. Wave went a long way to showing what huge differences their are in the quality of real TDR Tamaskan Dogs and commercially produced designer mutts from RPK.
Without Wave and his owners there very well could have been another RPK dog at the next game.
I hope everyone will join in our campaign and keep fighting until we can put a stop to commercial farming of Tamaskan Dogs. We have won the battle, let's win the war.
GO WOLFPACK, I am sure they will get more than one new fan, just because of Wave :)

This is really fantastic. Not only was our international Save Tuffy Campaign a huge success, which lead to NCSU doing the right thing and disassociating themselves from RPK's commercial breeding facility, but the replacement "Tuffy" (Wave) represents all the best features of our breed: a truly wolfy appearance and a fantastic temperament. More importantly, he comes from a loving family home and will do much to promote the breed itself, rather than gimmicky marketing for "Tuffy mascot puppies" - well done to Lisa & Joe and a big hug to Wave for becoming such an international superstar overnight... and taking it all in his stride. GO WOLFPACK!! :D

Hey,

I am happy for every one but I think I " Missed this big Wave". Forgive my ignorance....who is Wave? Who raised him? Where does he come from?...............does he have a job? What do his parents do? :lol:

Great looking dog though............it is a dog right? I've seen a lot of wolves and he looks dog to me. :)

Great to see that Wave was such a hit and that he is handling it well. Also good that the college seem to be taking his welfare into account. Well done to Lisa and her boy. He is so lovely. Guess he'll be the next Tam of the month!

Wave is a TDR registered Tamaskan that was born (and lives) in North Carolina.
He was bred by Tarheel (he's a pup from their first litter) and his parents are Tundra and Blaze.
His owners are Lisa & Joe, who are also here on the forum. :)

Congratulations to Wave. Personally I think it is a good idea that they say the dog is cross, keep the complication of breed out of it for now. Time enough later to promote Tamaskans when RPK is out of the picture properly. Do not want to give him any chance of publicity!

I appreciate all the positive support we have rec'd for our Wave! The negative has been minimal amongst the general population....not Tamaskan lovers, though.

Wave will do his best to make all his fellow Tamskans proud!

I am in awe over his performance last night & very proud of the compliments from the NCSU staff. To be his 1st time amongst 55,000 people....and to remain cool, granted his ears were down, but still he did well.

His next performance will be on 0ct 2nd....they will have more coverage of Tuffy II too.

Well then....Congratulations are in order for sure..........
And having grown up in western North Carolina......and a Tarheel fan....I love the irony....... :lol: Way to gol!!! :D
Just remember that North Carolina is the Tarheel State, not associated with NCSU's competing school. I was in at work when I first saw Wave (Tuffy) on TV and squealed like a little piggie! "I know that dog! I met that dog! He's a great dog!" Geez! You would have thought my son just took his first step...

Oct 2nd??? I'll be on the east coast that day! I may have to duck out from my father's wedding to watch the game ;)

Great job guys! GO WOLF PACK! They aren't playing the Badgers this season, so I'm safe!

Many of you have seen this already, but read the comments, two in particular, although all are good... the ones from Georgina and Lisa W are well known WD experts and have been very supportive of the Tamaskan Breed.

Posting a comment on this site is easy. It does ask for your name and e-mail, but will hide the e-mail, so there is some privacy ;) But if you do, I would keep your comments here positive and focused on Wave....

This is awesome news! Go Wave! I was a bit miffed at the way they called him a GSD Husky cross too, but now I think about it it's definitely better they did. Keeps so-called 'breed politics' out of the way of things and means no-one benefits directly from advertising. No-one can complain. ^-^

Brilliant news, can't wait to see how he gets on at future games.

I just had to post this pic of Wave from the Tamaskan Round Up. Photo taken by John and Tina Bannow. He looks tough, but he's just really thirsty ;)
