The goal of the Lupine Dog breeding programme is to re-create the health and vitality of the naturally evolved canine, removing all symptoms of physical extremism, but with a more developed social canine nature. They should possess a natural, wolf-like appearance, poise and ease of movement – however unlike a wolf they are behaviourally adapted to a modern domestic environment.

The Lupine Dog breeding programme carries several features which make it unique. Firstly, animals will only be registered from breeders who are signed up to our strict Code of Ethics. Secondly, we allow outcrossing through our Foundation Dog register and encourage bloodline sharing across our international network, evaluating each generation for breeding quality before issuing breeding registration to ensure consistency to type. Thirdly, we utilise a Lupine Classification System, which gives an indication to the degree of adaptability to the modern environment that each dog may be expected to show. This classification system enables potential owners to find the Lupine Dog that best matches their lifestyle and living environment whilst also allowing breeders working within the structure the opportunity to follow their breeding goals yet remaining united under W.O.L.F.’s ethical and responsible breeding practices.

From the beginning, the dog has been ‘man’s best friend’. But today, many puppies are sadly bred only for commercial gain. Their health and happiness – and that of their parents – tragically comes second to either making cash or creating the next ‘fad’. W.O.L.F. endeavor to protect the Lupine Dog and ensure their longevity through an ethical and accurate registry.
