| Look at this dog and tell me what you think. He looks damn good to me....I think I'm going to go bail him out.|

Good for you! Doesn't look too mixed to me!

|To me he kind of looks like that photo of the Shiloh that...Sunsilver? posted a couple times.|

OK, he looks like some dogs I met out of Dean Calderon's lines. I hope Dean reads this and maybe checks out whether it's one of his.

Best of luck anyway, he looks like a nice dog.

|OK, I'm picking him up at this evening. They were taking him in to be euthanized this morning, jeeze. So please, if anybody knows of a person wanting him in California, let me know. He's not neutered, either, not that anybody here would breed him. I'll get him evaluated to see what he would be good at.|

|Thanks for rescuing the dog, you have a big heart. The ad and picture are deleted can you post a picture?|

|Yes, please post a pic because the link is not working now.|

|Rescues often say purebreds are mixes. I don't know why. Maybe it's so people can't come back at them and say "HEY, you said this dog was PUREBRED, and I just found out it isn't!" Or maybe some people would want to rescue purebred animals, hoping to breed them.|
YES, pictures PLEASE!

| HOLY WOLF DOG, BATMAN!|
The bitch he's with here is NINETY POUNDS! Surely one of these K--- Shepherd or S----- Shepherd people will want him! He's a big bony 130 lbs, probably! 29 or so inches at the
shoulder, hard to measure him by myself. I'm not sure this picture is loading; may have to edit.

|What he actually looks like is TWO Calderon dogs!|

|I think they need a bigger dog bed for those two...|

|I'm in deep trouble. He stood up on his hind legs, hooked his elbows over the top of the 6' kennel, and pulled himself over. The woman who had him last night tried to crate him but he destroyed one wire one and one plastic one. My fences are only 7' high; I don't see how I'm going to keep him in...I am going to call the wolf rescue people.|

Holy Gigantor! He's Humongus! He looks like a happy boy, thank you for rescuing this big, big boy! How's his temperment? Good luck, & good job well done! jackie harris

|He has a good temperament, but I feel spooky! He has weird eyes, and I feel like I'm in way over my head! I'm sleeping in the damn crate tonight.|

WOW is he HUGE...the look on Alli's face says it all. He makes her look small. What a huge guy. Glad he gets along with her.

|He howls like a timberwolf every time a car alarm goes off or the train whistle blows. Hilarious. Then he's just standing there and reaches up and touches my freaking face with his paw. This is really an interesting task. We'll see if I'm up to it...Jyl, this is the first time in her entire life Ally has felt dominated. Never thought I'd see it.|

|LOL! Reminds me of the time my very dominant GSD bitch met a huge harlequin Great Dane. She went right down on the ground and rolled on her back, like a submissive pup! Only time I ever saw her do that. Usually, she'd test the other dog out, to see if she could dominate it.|
From the pic, I first thought 'Shiloh'. The Kings are more often black and tan, while a lot of Shilohs are brown or grey sable, or black and silver. But then you said he howls, which is not a Shiloh trait. So, yeah, I'm wondering if there is wolf in there, especially given the 'weird' eyes (which, again, are not a Shiloh trait.)
But Shiloh males can be up to 31 inches, and 130-140 lbs.
And now you know how he wound up in rescue. Looks like he's an escape artist!
Good luck with placing him!
