About the Saarloos Wolfhond

Saarloos Wolfhond  is a robust canine whose outward appearance, including movements and coat, is reminiscent of a wolf.

Lively and bursting with energy, proud and independent, the Saarloos Wolfhond  will only follow its own free will. That said, it is devoted to its owner and very reliable. Around strangers, this breed is reserved and rather suspicious.
