Really a beautiful dog. My dream dog look is pretty close to this. (and this: http://howlingforjustice.files.wordp...pack.jpg?w=700) Interesting find, I wonder what their numbers are currently.
Ditto - love the looks of these dogs. I have always been fascinated by wolves and they are my favorite animal by far - dream dog for sure!

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. 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.
