How does wolf genetics affect dog behavior?

Most of my pups have about 25% wolf blood by design. This has been part of my breeding strategy for many years and, contrary to popular opinion, the result is a less aggressive and hyper dog, on average, than the German Shepherd created by prolonged line breeding.
If you think about it, a wild canine will do everything in its power to avoid confrontation with humans under normal circumstances. There are three exceptions: Starvation, being cornered or protecting its young.
A wild canine is also generally smarter than a domestic one because of the natural selection process involving survival in the wild.
Over many years of breeding I have found that the wild genetics is highly beneficial in creating a great family companion.

Next Litter

The next litter is due to be born in mid June. Parents are Cleo and Cisco. Updates will be provided. All the pups from previous litters have now been sold.
