About this Breed

The Gray Wolf is clearly not a dog breed, though these wild animals are the ancestors of the domesticated dog. The Gray Wolf, or Timber Wolf, is the largest wolf species. It is understood that these wolves play an essential part in maintaining balance in their ecosystems, keeping deer and elk populations in check. These are social animals with a complex pack hierarchy. The Gray Wolf is found widespread throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Wolves are typical shy and reserved around people, but can obviously be extremely dangerous. While the Gray Wolf has recently entered the domestic dog gene-pool again through the rising popularity of wolf hybrids, it is important to remember that a wolf is not a pet.
