I would seriously doubt the popularity of random people owning "seppala lined dogs". However, there are several USA Sibe breeders that took part in the breeding of false Seppala dogs, so I can understand not everyone keeps up with the politics. But true Seppala dogs are few and far between, with the majority owned by only a handful of people in Alaska, Canada, and a few were shipped back to where they came from.

As far as this mutt breed....it is a desinger mutt focused around hype, popularity, and uneducated suckers who don't understand dogs well enough to get what they need. I don't think it will curb interest in Sibes, wolf hybrids, or any other Spitz dog. I think it will just cause a rift and a lot of backyard breeding when people assume they can "create" the dogs themselves. Labradoodles come to mind.

I don't have a problem with people with the right intentions legitimately trying to develop a new breed. The fact that health testing is clearly very important sits well with me. I like the CGC requirement, too. I'd like to see ATTS on there as well, but I definitely understand that in some areas it's virtually impossible to find an ATTS test.

This. I love that they are temperament tested and health tested before breeding. I really do like them as an alternate to wolf-dogs, which nobody has any business owning but people still want.

^ and this.

Mike is adamant about one day getting a wolf dog. As in, he will be getting one and I won't be stopping him. My two comforts is that a.) he does understand that a wolf hybrid is not a pet dog and b.) he intends to only get one if we live in an area where we can make a comfortable set up/enclosure for it outside and it can be cared for like the hybrid it is. I am secretly hoping that if I get a Tamaskan (or like "wolf look alike but easy going temperament" breed in progress) than he will be content with a "wolf dog" that acts like, well, a dog. LOL

I think a breed such as the Alaskan Noble Companion Dog would be a brilliant compromise.

Ehh as far as it being a mutt breed meant to fill a void or whatever, that's how all breeds are made. Just because you are content with one of the breeds currently around, doesn't mean everybody is. At least they're doing it right and doing health tests/temperament testing.

I agree with the rest saying it could be a good thing, if it stops people from looking for that wolf hybrid

I don't think this breed will fill any void. Someone who wants a Sibe will get a Sibe. If they want a Wolf Hybrid, they will get a Hybrid. Anyone in the dog world should know this. Even if someone had the choice of getting the SAME breed from either a breeder or rescue...where is 70% of the public going to go first? The breeder, and it's likely to be a "cheap" one.

And IF this breed takes off, you'll have BYB snatching up every Hybrid, Sibe, Akita, and GSD trying to breed them on their own, then sell them for cheaper prices than this breeder most likely wants, and minus the titles and health testing...because the public just wants "pets" anyway, so who cares?

I see this ending down a very, very bad road. As so most designer mutts that are centered around hype, popularity, and giving people what they want.

So, this breed is purely being created because they want a dog that looks more like a wolf?

It'll be interesting to see how this 'breed' works out in the coming years.
