One thing about Wolf mixes that I have seen is the a beautiful and the way they move just give them a different feel.

Are you sure those dogs were hybrids? I think it's sick to mix dogs and wolves. Hybrids are not just beautiful they can be dangerous. Hybrids are difficult to handle and you must have a lot of experince of dogs to keep animal like that..

i have never met a wolf cross, but that is because we have no wolves in australia, dingoes on the other hand are actually an endangered species as the bush dogs breed with them, there are very few purebred dingoes left.
on the other side, there are also a lot of dogs as pets with dingoes in them

and the worst bit is, you shouldnt be using a wolf as the sellignpoint, it should be put in as a word of warning, i love wolves myself but they are still wild animals, it is like trying to keep a lion or tiger as a pet, possible but dangerous.

I think its the macho thing once again, there are people that "think" to own one of these somehow puts a feather in their caps, by being able to "control" something that is seen as a "wild " animal, same as some people keep large cats etc. its an image thing, and personally I think its extremely foolish. if you have say a malamute 9/10 you know what your are getting, mix wolf into that and you can have a dog that can weigh anything up to 190lb(giant mal) with the unpridictability of a wolf, you may have an extremly dangerious animal on your hands.

dna can only tell if the supposed parents are truly the parents. it cannot differentiate between breeds, or domestic dog and wolf. wolf is canis lupis. that is a general term that covers all the subspecies including the domestic dog. for instance...arctic wolf is canis lupis arctos, domestic dog is canis lupis familiaris. and it is possible for a high wolf content hybrid to show only/mostly dog physical/mental characteristics, and a low wolf content hybrid to show only/mostly wolf physical/mental characteristics....
here are a few pictures. can anyone tell how much wolf is in each one???
