Playing, of course. I think my neighbor's dog is a "wolamute"- a wolf/Malamute mix:

Pretty doggies! Your neighbors dog looks pretty standard Malamute to me, but what do I know?

We've seen a lot of wolves in the 3-1/2 years we've lived up here in the boondocks, but the one thing I never noticed about them until these sightings is how incredibly long their legs are.

Yeah, she does resemble a Malamute:



but her colors are muted, she's not quite as bushy, her tail isn't as curly, and her snout isn't as short.

Here's a Timber Wolf:



And here's a confirmed "wolamute":



I don't know what she is for sure (neither do her owners) but I'm leaning towards the last example.

Cute pups. Are there captive wolves that breed with dogs or does the intermixing happen in the woods? There seem to be many wolf hybrids around town even.

There was an article in National Geographic recently about foxes becoming domesticated in about 20 generations of selective breeding. Selective based on temperament. The domesticated foxes even morphed physically (shorter upward facing tail, coat color and patterns, snout length, etc.)

I think the most common way is multi-generational wolf/dog breeding as opposed to breeding two purebreds. It's usually done for sled dog purposes.

Yeah, I can see what you're saying in the last example, especially the longer snout.

I agree with Ollie. Those are great action pics!

those pics are beautiful and fun! that mutt looks like an Alaskan Husky (basically the fancy name for Mutt. Siberian husky bred with any other breed, like you said, mostly for sledding purposes). But def could be bred with a wolf. I wonder how tall and how much he/she weighs.
that face! what a snout! verrrry wolfish.

i would love to see more dog/animal pics you have taken.
someday i would love to hire someone to take some great shots of my Sibe. i have about 1000 blurry pics of the back of her head.

Here's some I took of my dog and my mom's dog battling last fall, not really great photography, but fun subject matter:
