Thanks Wild, I wish it was easier for dogs like this
Could I post his pictures on a wolfdog group so they can phenotype him?

I was thinking the same thing about the Siberian Indian dog.

Wow! He is gorgeous.

I want to think he might be a Canadian Eskimo (Inuit) Dog but they are exceedingly rare even in Canada and doubt they would show up in an American rescue. They are not a breed I ever want to see in a pet home.

I am going to guess either a melanistic Siberian Husky or a Husky mix with a dark colored, prick eared breed some generations ago.

My friend who does Mal rescue wanted to know if he barked or woo-woo'd. She didn't see anything wild in him. She also poo-poo'd my idea of Akita/Malamute.

Looks like a GSD/Akita, or GSD/Husky to me.

Gorgeous dog! Why do they not think Malamute or Mal mix?
