You could get one imported. But any of good quality like that is going to cost you.

I think a German Shepherd mix would be a good idea....they meet basically all your requirements....loyal, protective, strong, active....

I agree. They can't be trusted off-leash.

About Siberian Husky and Alaskan Malamute. Do they meet my other requirements?

I want to be able to travel with it to other countries. And want it to be strong enough to walk with some of the wait from the backpack stuff, for most of the day. There will be brakes on the trip of cause,
I don't want a small dog. It must be fairly large. Between about 60-75 cm tall.
I'm looking for a good companion. They are large and can handle loads

Yes, actually. It seems they do... the first breed that I thought of was an Alaskan Malamute the way you described it.

The reason why I want a wolfy looking dog is partly because a wolfy look is beautiful. But also because I want to feel like I have a "wolf" companion (I don't necessarily mean a wolfdog), and not a simple "dog". If you know what I mean?

There are a few other reason, but for some reason I can't remember them.

I don't think they bark that much, they howl, but still not a lot.

They do have a special bond with you, but they are also people oriented. My loves all and everyone (practicly) but every dog is different and you need socializing.

I know they can carry their own things and some of yours for a long time, but not sure on traveling to other countries.

erm...not sure how tall that is. I think Mals go at around 25 in at shoulders for the males and sibes are a bit shorter.

Yup....but they are more independent...not big cuddlers, although mine cuddles sometimes.

Besides the wolfy thing i think a golden would be good . But if you want one that looks wolfy and will walk off leash thats hard. Well i guess since you mentioned a German Shepard they can be trained well. If you dont want a German, I wouldnt reccomend a husky or half wolf mix, they tend to wander,, not good off leash. The best beside the GS would i think be a malamute I just recently learned talking to another person.
Oh it was you i was talking too!
