Tamaskan dogs are descended from direwolves, a type of large. wolf that lived in the Arctic and taiga regions of North America during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). Direwolves were larger than modern wolves, but smaller than grizzly bears. They had roughened fur, which helped protect them from the cold weather and their powerful jaws allowed them to hunt big game. Some believe that tamaskan dogs may have inherited some of the characteristics that made direwolves such successful hunters – including a strong hunting instinct and a strong bond between pack members.
Keeshonden are also related to wolves, though they are not considered full-fledged wolfdogs because their ancestry is less clear. Keeshondens derive some of their characteristics from wild hunted canids like timber wolves and golden jackals – traits that these animals passed down to early man as well as to proto-dogs domesticated by humans over 10,000 years ago. In particular, the klipped tail and erect ears of the keeshond combined with upright posture help conserve body heat while hunting prey in cold climates; these behaviors may have been inherited from wild canids that man domesticated as predators or scavengers in prehistoric times.

Let’s take a closer look…

There’s no one specific breed of dog that looks like a Wolf, but many different varieties do share some similar characteristics. Wolves are large, powerfully built animals with heavy fur coats and keen eyesight. Some common breeds that resemble wolves include American Barkskin Bulldogs, Alaskan Malamutes, Irish Setters, giant schnauzers and Australian Cattle Dogs.

Worth knowing

Wolves are known for their scavenging skills which means that they typically eat whatever is available. However, some studies have suggested that wolves may display seasonal preferences when it comes to food. In the summer, wolves may prefer high caloric foods while in the winter they may be more partial to low calorie foods.
