( INFO: wolfdogs, hybrid wolves, wolf dog hybrids )
The Wolf Dunn plays on the words Dunn and Den. Wolves excavate dens to give birth and raise a litter in. A Wolf Dunn is a place where ideas are born and grow.

This website was started in response to a request for a friendly online location where 'owners' of wolf-dog crosses can share experiences, photos, advise and information about these magnificant creatures. Here at The Wolf Dunn, it's your turn to howl!

Hybrid Wolves, Wolf-Dog Crosses, Wolfdogs, by our definition are canines of 'recent' wolf heritage. As Canis lupus (wolf) and Canis lupus familiaris (dog) are the same species, "hybrid" is an inaccurate outdated term. It is most appropriate to refer to more recent wolf x dog crosses as 'wolfdogs'.

Whether your furry companions are higher or lower in content, does not matter so much to us, as do your feelings towards your animals.

Coming soon: Black Arctic, Mountain wolf, and the ever-popular MacKenzie Valley and Red wolf claims.

Saarloos WolfhondsWolfdog & Wolf-like Dog Breeds
In the U.S., most of our wolfdogs are some combination of wolf subspecies and dog breeds, in a variety of content ranges. In general, our animals are wolfy-mutts. However, there are certain lineages which have been selectively bred for multiple generations with the intention of creating stable new breeds. Others incorporate non-recent wolf inheritance to improve existing dog breeds, and some focus on developing wolf-like dog breeds. This section is a celebration of those accomplishments. Plus, a showcase of two fully regognized European wolfdog breeds, the Saarloos Wolfhond and the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog !
