    Beautiful dogs, I didn't see a temperament standard? The pup on that second link looks very GSD.

    (that's from an internal link from the first link)

    I think that's it. You're right that pup looks like a shepherd. But they do seem to have some homogeneity going on.

    It looks like a black alaska husky or a racing line sibe.

    It'll be interesting to see how they develop over time. I like the health and temperament DQs.

    If they're based on Tamaskans I'd be very interested in learning more... :eek:

    That's what I was thinking. I would LOVE for Tamaskans to come in black. I think about the only thing off putting for me about Tams is how they are prone to separation anxiety.

    Beautiful dogs, its hard to believe from their appearance they're bred with no wild canines. They have a very collie demeanor and movement about them!

    As long as it's being done responsibly, I'm very pro new-breeds-that-look-wild-but-are-domestic because clearly, there's a market for wolf-like breeds and it would be nice if people had that option without actually getting hybrids that go on to suffer in captivity and often pose a danger to people.

    These guys are gorgeous... that dark fur and those light eyes? Wow. Tamaskans are glorious too. I have them on my semi-serious "when I have the space to have a dog to just hang around" list. Not that they can't do sports, I just don't see them as my hardcore sport dog, more of a pet. Also, so I can dress up as Little Red Riding Hood on Halloween and tote my Tamaskan around with me. :D

    Do you think I could own an Irish wolfhound and one of these?

    Exactly. IMO this looks like a marketing gimmick to pet people for a breed type that already exists and that pet people have zero business owning. And I say that kindly as an owner of alaskan sled dog mutts.

    But... A lot of current breeds excell at things that could be considered 'oh of their comfort zone' example: Josefina will retrieve all day & LOVES the water but she is not a retriever, Izze loved 'bite work' but she is not a working type, & buddy can flush birds with the pest spaniel. A few mastiff types still can be use for livestock protection/ herding - thr Rottweiler & cane corso are a could that come to mind.

    I see no need to create a whole new breed just so a person can have something 'versatile' when a really good minded dog of an existing breed can serve just fine.

    But but but, if they're bred out of Tamaskan lines then they do have "pet level" temperaments and drives. Which is why they would be awesome for me. :rofl1: Otherwise I wouldn't even consider it.

    Honestly, if someone can fill that "wolfdog" niche with a mellow stable companion dog, I'm all for it. It would really cut down on the demand for real hybrids and also on the demand for wolfy looking northern breeds that don't have any business as companions in an apartment.

    If the breed continues in a direction I like, we'll see how they get along with borzois. ;)

    I see nothing wrong with breeding good looking pets as opposed to those without the means buying seppalas based on looks.

    Honestly I *love* the look but I have enough friends with seppalas blood dogs to tell me they're not my style. If this dog were more my style I may be interested.
