Tiny wolves apparently as they are in the 20 pound range.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/ ... -test.html
The new genetic research, involving scientists from Oxford University's Wildlife Conservation Research Unit, shows beyond doubt that the Egyptian 'golden' jackal is a grey wolf.
This came to my attention when someone posted a vid of the "Egyptian Wolf" pup they have and I had to look it up.

Cool. About time that's "settled." Dogs have a variety of sizes, so would make sense if wolves do too. Although these are subspecies and not breeds.

Sulimov dogs being part golden jackal makes more genetic sense now; I didn't know they were so genetically similar. Is the coyote a gray wolf too? They have the same number of chromosomes as the jackal and wolf.
