dog health problems

Wolves are magnificent creatures that never fail to awe us. Perhaps we desire wolf-like dogs in our lives because of their innate magnificence, wrapped in the wonder and mystery of our bedtime stories, art, and movies. 

After all, they are our pet dog’s wild alter-ego, strong and fearless. If you’d like to have a wolf-like dog of your own, check out this list!

Wolf-Like Dog Breeds

Siberian Husky

Siberian Huskies are perhaps the most popular dogs that resemble wolves. In fact, they’re the top example that most people think of when asked to come up with wolf-life dogs.

The Siberian Husky is the most popular dog breed on this list, as well as one of the most popular household dogs. He is a boisterous and amusing canine that enjoys being the focus of attention. 

Alaskan Malamute

These lovely canines are kind, loyal, and lively. Expect to spend a lot of time hugging and combing this breed – their thick, waterproof double coat suited them well in the Arctic, where they originated, but it takes a lot of maintenance to avoid tangles.

German Shepherd

The German Shepherd is an unquestionable hero. German Shepherds are intelligent and loyal dogs who like being on a mission. From search and rescue to guiding and assisting, no mission is too difficult for their diverse skills.

German Shepherds, like their other working dog cousins, are clever and highly trainable, with a desire to please.

Czechoslovakian Wolfdog

The Czechoslovakian Wolfdog resembles a wolf. He is a relatively young breed, also known as the Czechoslovakian Vlack, produced by the Czech military in the 1950s. 

During the Cold War, he was bred to be a bloodthirsty and aggressive patrol dog. 

Swedish Vallhund

If you prefer a wolf-like dog that is smaller in size, try the Swedish Vallhund. These amiable, lively dogs are generally under 35 pounds and have short legs. 


Kugsha, also known as Amerindian Malamutes, are wolf hybrids endemic to the United States. They are more powerful, bigger, and longer than Siberian Huskies, but not as massive as Alaskan Malamutes. 

Canadian Eskimo Dog

This breed, also known as Qimmiq, Canadian Husky, and Canadian Inuit Dogs, is a working dog that was used to pull sleds and hunt. 


In England, Utonagans were bred with the goal of generating a wolf-like dog. They are a cross between an Alaskan Malamute, a German Shepherd, and a Siberian Husky. 


The Sammie should be the wolf-dog benchmark for white fluffiness. Their gorgeous thick double coat necessitates additional maintenance, but it is well worth it. 


As you can see, there are many wolf-like dogs for those who desire these characteristics. Make sure you do your research to select the right breed for you and that you can provide a good home with plenty of physical, mental, and emotional stimulation. With the right amount of love, care, and exercise, all these breeds will make great companions!
