Wolf content, the number of generations removed from a pure Wolf and the type of dog used in each cross must be considered when defining a Wolfdog. Because of random genetics inherited from both the dog and the Wolf, the looks and/or behavior can vary. Contact the dog breeders below for your next family friend. Wolfdog Facts.

A Famous Dog for His Service

Buddy Frank
Buddy's owner Morris Frank got into a fight when he was in school in 1916, and ultimately lost his sight. He wanted the same kind of independence he had had prior to losing his sight, and didn't like having to depend on people to get around. An article in the Saturday Evening Post, written by Dorothy Harrison Eustis, described how dogs were being trained at several German schools to guide the blind. Morris Frank contacted Eustis, wanting not only a dog for himself in order to regain his independence, but to establish a program whereby other people could also acquire guide dogs to guide them as needed. Morris Frank met Buddy, a female guide dog in Germany in 1928, and worked with her there before returning to the United States. Buddy is a very popular dog, and top dog to Mr. Frank. Buddy is officially considered the first Seeing Eye dog, and she and Morris Frank, along with Dorothy Eustis, established The Seeing Eye, an institution in Nashville that trains guide dogs and their owners.
