We imagine that at least a few pulses were raised the first time a Native American Village Dog was taken out for a walk around their community - with their pointed ears, thick coats, and piercing "thousand yard" stares, folks must've thought that a wolf was walking among them! In reality, the Native American Village Dog is a hybrid pup that just so happens to physically resemble a wolf more than a dog. While the Native American Village Dog's physical traits are undoubtedly lupine, this dog is genetically predisposed to act friendly and obedient to humans due to the German Shepherd and Native American Indian Dog DNA flowing through them. Native American Village Dogs were bred to act as companion and guardian animals, so introducing a member of this breed to the sorts of activities befitting a companion or guard dog will do wonders for their growth and development as a pet.
Native American Village Dogs are very compassionate canines who have the heart of a hound despite heavily looking like a wolf. Their physical traits help increase their efficacy as guard dogs and livestock guardians, as would be thieves and assailants will think twice about crossing the family of a Native American Village Dog when they see that their members are being protected by a super-sized wolf! Native American Village Dogs can learn to adapt to various environments and households, but they don't tend to like small spaces all that much. If you think you can manage living with a wolf among you, then you should definitely consider adopting a Native American Village Dog.
