    No problem. I definitely think he has some wolf in him. Ever since I got him, I've been researching wolves and the differences between dogs, wolfdogs, and wolves, and Beowulf has a lot of behaviors and physical characteristics similar to wolves and wolf dogs. He has certain physical features and traits that our other 2 dogs don't have. Paw Paw, our husky, is supposedly the breed closest to a wolf out of the hundreds of dog breeds, and Beowulf acts more wolf-like than Paw Paw does. He looks more wolfy too. Even breeds like the Tamaskan, who are dogs being bred to look like wolves, have been discovered to have secretly added wolves in their gene pool, yet are sold as "wolfdogs without the wolf."

    But like I said, the only way to know if Beowulf has any wolf in him is to DNA test him, and I don't care that much about it, nor do I want to afford it. Hit me back in a year when Beowulf is fully grown and I can let you know how large (or small) he is. Haha.

    Thanks for answering my question, I don't want you to feel like I don't belive that your dog is a wolf hybrid but his size made me question it. Like you said the father was supposebly 195 and I've never heard of a dog taking all of the mother's characteristics. You'd think he would be somewhere in the middle, or as a male closer to his father. But he sounds like an awesome dog and wolf hybrids always interested me, I'd be really interested to find out if they do come in "dog" sizes.
