Wolfdog

General Description

They have long legs, a very narrow chest, very well furred smallish ears, black tipped tail, cowhocked back legs, enormous feet, and are very tall.

Character and Temperament

This large animal is a controversial pet that may make a great companion for one person but be troublesome-or even dangerous-for another. Wolf dogs retain much of the instinctive behavior of their wild relatives. They are headstrong and aggressive, and they can be downright ferocious.

Exercise

They need long walks, every day (a brief run in the backyard isn't enough). If you don't have the time to dedicate to extensive walks, they're probably not the right canine companion for you. You should ensure they get at least 45 minutes of physical activity every day; this is essential for their health and fitness.

Origin

In 1932, Dutch breeder Leendert Saarloos crossed a male German Shepherd dog with a female European wolf. He then bred the female offspring back with the male German Shepherd Dog, creating the Saarloos wolfdog. The breed was created to be a hardy, self reliant companion and house dog.
