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inaccurate outdated term.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.

The word Kwewu means 'wolf' in Hopi
Indian. I don't speak the language, it's just my way of expressing my
love of wolves.

"Creative" Heritage Claims (misrepresentation)
Poking fun at the wacky "creative" heritage claims breeders use to attempt to
legitimize un-known lineages. Going way beyond the usual misrepresentations of dogs as wolves,
included in this tounge-in-cheek educational tool are the hilarious Louisiana Swamp wolf,
Buffalo wolf, and Black Russian wolf. Coming soon: Black Arctic, Mountain wolf, and the
ever-popular MacKenzie Valley and Red wolf claims.
Wolfdog & 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 !
