So I was at the local dog park with my dog and a man brought in a dog that he reffered to as a Native American Indian dog (pure bred, mother was 130 pounds and father was 107) It looked so much like a wolf. So are Native American Indian dogs just wolves?

She looked kind of like :

This site says that no wolf is in them. They have this on their home page:

"CAUTION: Within the last few years, since wolf/dogs have become illegal to breed or sell in most states, there have been wolf/dog breeders plagiarizing our many years of research and web site information in an attempt to hide their activites, and circumvent the law. We are not and never have been associated, in any way, with these "so called" breeders now using the name "Native" in front of American Indian to sell what are actually wolf/dog hybrids. These wolf hybrids are in no way the dogs of our Pre-Columbian, Native American ancestors. Don't be fooled, by people claiming to have "NATIVE American Dogs" please do your research."

I know a guy who has one. It is not part wolf and I don't even think it looks particularly wolfy. I think it's got some German Shepherd and some Husky along with some other things. It looks mostly like a white GSD mix to me. I think he's about 90 lb.

They are a combination of several breeds - huskies, german shepherds, malamutes & chinook. Also said to be some reservation dog stock going way back to the start of the breed - not sure I buy that. There are no claims that these dogs are any part wolf at all, although foundation stock came from a breeder who was rumored to be in the wolf dog breeding business years ago before it was outlawed in the state. There has been a mini-war going on for years between American Indian Dog breeders and Native American Indian Dog breeders, and of course the bybs who try breeding them to make $$ - those are the ones usually claiming wolf content.

Yes they are a lot of wolf, people are confusing the lines you asked about
North american indian dogs, not Native american indian dogs, as they are something totally different.
It is just the name of Mark klemperers high content wolfdog line. Its not a breed its just the name of his particular line.
Here's a link where he talks about it http://www.wcatcr.com/WDinfoandeducation.html
Here's some pics of his animals http://www.wcatcr.com/WDGALLERY.html

So North american indian dog=high wolf content. What is the difference between American Indian dog and Native American dog, is it the same thing? Are they actual breeds? Just curious...
