It’s the same with my wolf hydrid and my other dogs in the past.
I can take a clump of matted fur that I have just pulled out of their coat and, given the chance, they will eat it on the spot. It’s sort of like they’re saying, “Hey, that’s mine, gimme it back.”
Any explanations for this behavior? Is their some mild reclamation of material or an amount of mineral nutrient that they receive like a spider eating it’s web?
This is one of the few canine quirks I’ve ever witnessed that I am unable to readily explain.
