Saarloos Wolfhound

The Saarloos Wolfhound is a cross between a Eurasian Wolf and a German Shepherd which originated in 1921. The breed was created by Leendert Saarloos in an attempt to improve the German Shepherd’s immunity to distemper.

The breed is a wolf-like dog which is imposing, yet reserved. In the past, the breed has been trained as both a rescue dog and a guide dog for the blind.
