working dog

Grabbed this from the Retrieverman blog. Dog on the right is the product of a Labrador Retriever dam and a low content wolfdog sire.

The dog on the left is the dog on the right’s son.

These dogs are not dirty or sooty (which is what I thought at first!). That is just the color of their coat. I love the dog on the left, he’s wild looking! That perfectly blended wolf-grey color is very handsome on a Labrador. :)

Here is a picture from the same blog of the dog on the right (as a pup) with his sire and dam.

The practice of crossing wolves and wolfdogs to hunting dogs is not a new concept. It can be found in written history from the middle ages until today, where it is still common within some breeds (the hunting breeds of Russia come to mind).

There are even some cases of “tame” wolves being used as hunting dogs and running with packs of hounds.

I’ll make a post on that later.
