Favorite Wolfdog Look?

Postby caninesrock » Tue Dec 20, 2011 5:51 pm

What's your favorite wolfdog look, whether it be a low, high, or mid content? You can also include non-wolf dogs with wolflike appearance too though if you want.

Mine are:

Definitely looks to be part wolf:
Image

Looks like one of those dog breeds bred to look like a wolf like a Utongan(or whatever those things are called):
Image

Maybe has a tiny bit of wolf,but looks more like a german shepard hybridized to another dog breed:
Image

Just looks like a husky, malamute, or husky hybrid, malamute hybrid to me:
Image

Does look to have some wolf in it:
Image

This guys look like he might have some wolf in him as well because he somewhat resembles a czech wolfdog:
Image

This just looks like a long-haired husky or malamute mix with no wolf in it to me:
Image

I like the black one. Both dogs look like they might have a small amount of wolf in them:
Image

Supposedly a german shepard-wolf hybrid. If that's the case, it has alot more german shepard than wolf in it:
Image

Beautiful dog,but I think she/he got dooped for a husky:
Image
From here:

Looks more like a purebred malamute to me or I guess it could be a purebred husky:
Image

This guy look somewhat huskish,but cross with another breed and not necessarily a wolf. He could have some wolf in him though:
Image
From here:
http://tera90.deviantart.com/art/Wolf-Dog-164666419

Looks from like a german shepard x husky mix breed to me.
Image

Ok. Now this look almost exactly like a german shepard,but the hair's a little funny looking and it's not as bulky and more slender. Maybe it's an alsation varitey german shepard(the original german breed which is less bulky and more wolf-looking than the German Shepard we're used to seeing on tv and movies):
Image
From here:
http://www.dreamstime.com/wolf-dog-stoc ... ree1552534

I'd go with pure malamute for this guy:
Image

Both of the following photos from here:
http://www.kecharaskorner.com/moreinfo_01.html

I have no idea. Looks like a cross a collie and german shepard or a collie and husky or a collie and wolf or......Yeah. It could be anything. I've never seen a dog that looks like this before.

Image

Image

This guy looks like the possible alslation I posted above:
Image
from here:

And then's there's these guys. Not sure how many of these are really hybrids and how many of these owners got scammed though:

The following photo is from here:
http://www.squidoo.com/jed-white-fang-n ... ramebuster

Image

And,of course, for actual purebred wolfdog breeds I like:

Czech Wolfdog
Image

Saarloos Wolfhund
Image

Lupo Italiano
Image
Image

These two look too much like german shepards to me,but since they are purebreds(experimental,but still breeds), I decided to include them here from references:
Kunming Dog
Image

American Tundra Sheperd
Image

Tamaskan Dog(Ok. This one is cheating. It has no wolf in it. It's a breed specficially bred to look like a wolfdog without actually having wolf in it to avoid the behavior problems of true hybrids while still keeping the exotic look of them):

A lot of those look like pure dogs to me... and a few very low contents. This one is reallllly pretty, though, and probably looks the most wolfish.

My favorites are personally:
Unknown Wolfdog Cross. Possibly Malamute Wolf Cross? Person who wrote the article about the famous one(Jed)(the second picture) claims that he is a wolf crossed with a malamute. I just thought the first picture had kind of similiar features to Jed:
Image
Image

My Favorite Wolfdog Breeds
Czech Wolfdog
Image

Lupo Italiano(sadly an experimential breed that the gov won't allow imported out of Italy. It's a beautiful dog. It reminds me alot of an Iberian wolf,but that was not the subspecies of wolf they were crossed with):
Image


Tamaskan Dog( a breed that has no wolf in it,but it is bred to look like it does have some)
Image

Also: Purebred Husky? or Purebred Malamute? with no wolf in itImage


And finally this guy. No idea,but he appears to have lot of wolf in him:

Ok. Thank you. Do you know about the others I posted? I put my opinions on what I think they are in my first post,but I'm not entirely sure.

I don't find lower-content and no-content "wolfdogs" all that appealing, but I'm admittedly not a dog person. But I do like the ones that look and act like wolves. I appreciate their aloofness and their uncanny ability to exploit any lapse of attention or weakness on your part. I'd not want one as a pet, but visiting is always fun.

I'm not really a fan of dogs that are bred to look like wolves, mainly because of their behavior. I guess I'm not really a fan of how they look, either. I think a lot of those places you posted have a lot of people who got duped into paying a lot for a husky mix, too :roll:

Also, this dog is a pure German Shepherd:
Image

My Shepherd looked pretty similar, he was a lighter color and had a more slender physique than most Shepherds you see.

Most of them I would say are straight up dog mixes in my opinion besides the last one having some in there. The Czech's and Sarloo's were made using wolf but its sense been bred out of them. Dont know a thing about the Lupo Italiano's.
The one with the wolfhuskypups.com link on it is a known rip off artist in the wolfdog world, telling people they're higher content animals then they are and most the animals they do have don't have any content what so ever in there. They also do alot of brokering.

@Cindy: What kind of dog do you think Jed(the dog who played White Fang in the Disney live action adaption of it)is?

Jed from Disney's White Fang:
Image

Well, I still technically consider Czech Wolfdogs, Saarlooswolfhunds, and Lupo Italianos wolfdogs because there is actually wolf in the breed whereas alot of the northern breeds like huskies and malamutes(although they look like wolves and howl like them) have no wolf in their ancestory at all. Also, the purebred wolfdogs are said to be very hard to handle and more wolf-like in behavior than even the northern breeds.

Also, for that WolfHusky Pups scam, is that a pure malamute or a pure husky?

Jed was actually supposed to be a mid content wolfdog/malamute.

I'd say the wolfhuskypups animal is a husky they're the ones known most for the blue eyes compared to the malamutes.

The more wolf in them, the prettier they are in my opinion. I just love how huge their paws are. I also really enjoy the wolf behaviors--like biting each others mouths.

@Ash: Well, I figure if I want something that looks a lot like a pure wolf, then I might as well just get a pure wolf. If I'm going to get a wolfdog, I'd want one in addition to a wolf and want it to look somewhat dog-like. I really love the way Jed looks. I want a wolfdog that looks like him.

@Cindy: Do you know what breeds of dog and what subspecies of wolf were used to make Jed's midcontent wolfdog parent? I'm assuming his other parent was just a purebred malamute?

No sorry I sure dont.

Some people though who get wolfdogs want such high contents that look pure wolf because they're state will not allow pure wolves to private people even with liscences (sp). But some will allow any content (percent) of wolfdog. That was the reasoning I ended up with my two highs.

Oh. Ok. That explains it then. I always wondered why people would get high contents instead of just getting pure wolves when they look and act extremely identical to pure wolves anyway and have the same enclosure and care requirements.
