The first thing that came to my mind was Akita mix.

I think it's his face...? I don't know, wish I did. The purebred rescues are very tough, though.

The OP's picture actually looks very, very much like a DDR male GSD I had at my house for a while.

He definitely looks like he has some Akita in him to me. It's funny that the purebred rescues won't make an exception for him because a lot of the ones I know of will,as long as they can determine that the dog has some of that breed in them at least. How long do you have him for and are you doing the temperament eval on him?

We don't do temp. evals except observations.
Basically he killed some of our livestock (the day he showed up or was dumped here, nobody was home) so he's not able to stay here, and the rescues probably aren't taking him due to that, but Husky rescue is working on a placement for him.
So that's my "eval", he's not able to be placed by us. They are boarding him now.

The "purebred rescue" folks are very tough, some actually have application fees to take your application! I learned ages ago to forget placing a dog with them, when I did a/c I sent out numerous requests but never would hear back.

So far all the responses on the wolfdog facebook group have been no wolf content, and they think it's a gsd/malamute.

I'd guess either a malamute mix or a Tibetan mastiff mix.
