History [ edit ]

The Saarloos Wolfhound originated in the Netherlands in the 1900s. This breed was developed by Leendert Saarloos, who noted that contemporary dogs had become weekened with hip dysplasia and similar conditions. He resolved to rectify the situation and created this breed by crossing a German Shepherd Dog back to a wolf.

Leendert Saarloos died in 1969, just six years before his breed was accepted by the Dutch Kennel Club.

This breed is unmistakably similar to a wolf in appearance, this dog still retains a strong pack instinct and needs firm handling as a result.

The Saarloos Wolfhound should be 27 and a half to 29 and a half inches tall and weigh 79-90 pounds.
