Hmm I mean he kind of looks wolfy but so do sable GSD's... His muzzle doesn't seem nearly long enough for wolf, maybe chow or Akita I can kind of see.

I am not familiar with many other sled dogs though since I can't own one where I live right now.

I really hope those rescues aren't refusing him because they think he's a wolfdog, he has no characteristics of one. Wolfdogs are really tall, narrow, and slender, this dog looks short and built like a bulldozer.

I also think he's mixed with some northern breed, but I don't know what else. He's really cool looking though! What's his temperament like? What about prey drive?

Prey drive. Yeah. No small furries or feathers.

He's submissive with humans though. Very nice.
Food aggressive (to other animals, not sure about humans, I ain't goin' there!) and even dog aggressive when food's not involved.

We're finding him a rescue because I am not qualified to place him and I am not ashamed to say that The Northern breed people are much more qualified (due to small animal...err...destruction) and they'll board him while we search for a responsible place for him.

interesting. he'd need some serious management from an owner if he were to be adopted.

OH yeah. To say the least.
Which is why the Northern people are better at this...

One reason I probably won't ever be able to own a Mal, due to my love of small dogs(I know blasphemy on this forum right? ) and cats so I will just admire them from afar!

Hope he finds a good home!

This picture was just sent me to by a family member when I inquired about a certain breed combination that I knew they'd had a few years ago. Take a guess. the pic is NOT their dog but this is one remarkably similar.

Looks quite similar!

Yeah I know Carrie, me too. Gorgeous dogs but I have too many farm animals for that...

I love my cats. I'd rather stay away from spitz and northern breeds lol.
