i know it's always said that people don't breed wolves to dogs anymore and they breed them to wolfdogs, but do you have any pictures of 50/50 wolfdogs? i'd really like to see that
I don’t have very many images because its not done very often but I do have some. It’s also nice to know that F1(first generation) pairings are the only acceptable time to describe wolf content in terms of percentages/fractions, as an F1 puppy has received exactly half of his genetic material from his mother’s side, and exactly half from his dad’s side. These animals are the true standard for “50%” wolf.
When it comes to creating wolfdogs, most breeders chose domestic dogs that are already very wolf-like in appearance: Their go-to breeds are Husky, Malamute, and German shepherd. It is highly uncommon for wolfdogs to be intentionally crossed with any other breed, as most other breeds produce less wolfy-looking wolfdogs. And the wolfier a wolfdog looks, the more it’s worth to buyers and breeders alike.
Here are some first generation wolf/dog crosses:
German shepherd cross
and lastly a poodle cross
