Re: Wolf ancestry in german shepherds?
The Math sounds off...To me A dog that is 25% wolf is going to have a grandparent that is completely wolf. If you're having to go back to original foundation dogs for wolf heritage, and even those dogs were not pure wolf...well then I would say the percentage is much much smaller.
Sure GSDs might be closer than other breeds, but it still seems far fetched to start calling them "Wolf dogs". I mean if you go back 30 generations and find 1 relative whose Mom was from China, does that make you Chinese?
(And yes I understand we're dealing with compounding linebreeding but every time you cross out it becomes more dilute)
