    Hi!! We got our pup almost a year ago, yet we still don’t know what he’s mixed with. We’ve gotten low content wolfdog a few times. Thoughts? 05927D3D-B086-4178-8A35-A847038E7AF5.jpeg 45173DAF-2B6F-48A5-A909-57B600D14107.jpeg

    What do you mean by low content wolfdog?

    A dog mixed with a wolf, “wolfdog”. A low content wolfdog has more dog in it than wolf.

    I would say likely Husky/German Shepherd.

    Highly unlikely indeed he has any Wolf in him.

    It's fairly obvious what 'wolfdog' means. :rolleyes: It's the 'low content' that was vague.

    So you've had his DNA tested? Or is it just the comments people make?

    I really don't think so.

    Why would the OP be asking us if he had DNA results?

    We’re getting him a DNA test from Wisdom Panel, which should arrive in a week or two :) for now it’s just the comments, aha.

    Be interesting to see what it comes back with as he does look quite wolfy in his colouring.

    I want to say German shepherd with a white mum or dad ( probably wrong). Can you post DNA results as I've seen a couple with some very surprising blood lines

    I would say most likely his a German shepherd/Siberian Husky Mix. Its not an uncommon mix, and also although hard to tell in the photo his eyes look Blue/ish? If they are then that would also mean that he would inherit it from the Siberian Husky in him in all likely hood too.

    I would say GSD x Swiss Shepard could possibly have a little Czech Saarloos (wolfdog) in it

    Yeah I wouldn't say husky x German shepherd, or something along those lines!
