Does he have any wolf in him?
1 Attachment(s)
We rescued him from an alleged wolf dog breeder. He shows (to me) a few wolf characteristics. I need your help. This photo was taken directly off my instagram.:help:

Hi....welcome to the forum. I'm new as well! You learn a lot that's for sure. I don't see any wolf in him, just looks like a German Shepherd with a graying muzzle, but non the less a beautiful one! Congrats on your new family member!

Nope, no wolf. Which is a relief.

Thank you for rescuing him. Handsome boy. Enjoy him. Focus on training & bonding. I'm sure he will be a good buddy.

a Wolf/GSD?

I would say not .

Looks like a GSD with a gray muzzle. Maybe you are noticing wolf traits because the GSD is one of the most wolf like breeds. They are still 100% dog tho.

No wolf, imo. Cochise, my Sibe from yrs back, was often assumed to be 'part wolf' but anyone who knew what to look for saw 100% dog. (The sister of Cochise's 1st owner actually kept/bred high percentage wolf crosses. Cochise's owner thought it was a bad idea & didn't allow his young children around them).

The GSD's wolf lineage ended over a century ago. While they resemble grey wolves, there is nothing "wild" about them beyond the looks.

Over the years I shared my home with a number of wolf shepherd crosses, and I am 100% sure you have a dog, no wolf blood. I base this on what I see in the photo--the size and set of his ears, the size of his canine teeth, the shape of his muzzle, what I call the "German shepherd bump" on his nose, the shape and color of his eyes, the size and shape of his feet...I am sure that if you posted a side photo of him standing, we could address other conformation evidence. Enjoy your dog for what he is!
