I actually disagree with those who say it doesn't look like it doesn't have any wolf in it. I rescued my first pup at 6 1/2 weeks from the humane society here (they were overfull and knew pups would get adopted fast)-- my roommate went up to see some "wolf hybrid pups" out of the paper, up by mt Spokane. Hers was MOST DEFINITELY wolf hybrid-- it killed the litter of kittens her cat had when it was barely over 4 months and you could watch a nat geo episode and her dog looked like it stepped off the screen. Never was very "dog-like". Had the same face as that picture here on the first page.
My pup--- who knew what he was? Not the HS. Just a mutt. But I saw behaviors I wondered about, he grew to be over 30" and weighed 120ibs when he was lean. My vets argued back and forth whether he was a wolf-hybrid. I didn't care, I knew he was at least partly dog and had some GSD by his ears. When he developed bone cancer at almost 10 yrs old, we took him to WSU vet hospital. They promptly listed him as a wolf hybrid. I argued a bit, but they insisted they could tell by his teeth, the measure of his head and jaw, stuff like that. They were amazed at how well-behaved he was though. He did da/n sure look like one, but who knows or cares?
You can pm me if you want and I can tell you more specifics. He did have some habits and such that were nor like other dogs I've had since-- but he handled my kids in stride (never could break him of small animal prey, nor did he particularly like other dogs). There's pics of him on here somewhere in some thread.
