Kugsha is one of the most strong wolf hybrids. They are bigger than Siberian Huskies, so you can well imagine. They have long legs and muscular built, they can carry weights over long distances.

Kugsha are not “very domesticated” and require a lot of exercising to go with their “free spirit”. They like to wander off, they are born travelers. They are not suitable for families with small children as they do have violent tendencies. They develop strong bonds with owners but can get restless and even violent due to lack of exercise and activity.

Northern Inuit Dog is a cross between German Shepherds, Siberian Huskies, and Inuit dogs. They are probably the most “wolf-like” dogs on our list. Northern Inuit Dog was bred for one purpose: a domesticated dog that resembles a wolf. Their shape, coloring and medium-size built resembles can make anyone think that it is a wolf wandering around the street!

While they certainly look appealing, they are not suitable for new owners. They are not easy to train and are very moody. They like to socialize with other dogs and make good family pets. They are not known for violent behavior.
