What do you think about the "Sulimove dogs"? Apparently they're a mix of Golden Jackals and Huskies. Sounds like a huge fake to me..
Never heard of them before so I looked them up - they look so adorable! The Sulivom dog is a breed that Russian scientists have been breeding since 1975 for scent detection work, consisting of about 25% Golden jackal (Canis aureus) and 75% dog (Canis lupus familiaris).
The original mix was 75% Lapinporokoira (a reindeer herding spitz, see 1st picture below), chosen for its resistance to cold, and 25% golden jackal (2nd picture below) from Turkmenistan, chosen for its superior olfactory abilities.
Apparently other dogs were bred into the line to improve trainability; a fox terrier, a Spitz, and a reindeer herding hound, resulting in an easily trainable dog with a superior sense of smell. The only few of these dogs that are in existence are all property of Aeroflot.
