I was told that my 7 month old GSD is about 1/8 wolf. I know you can't actually know unless you do a DNA test but I still believe she has some in her.

Orange eyes are usually a give-away.

All dogs are wolves ----. If you want to believe-BELIEVE it's ok but according to research every dog evolved from the gray wolf.

Well I was told by someone else that only being an 1/8, I cant tell much. She doesn't have orange eyes.

And ya I know that's where all domesticated dogs originated from. I'm saying that I was told she's a hybrid. That her mom was 1/4 wolf.

Find a vampire, and if your creature starts to growl and show an irrational hatred towards the blood sucker than you can rest assured you have a wolf. It is widely known in the sled dog world that wolves hate vampires. It is industry standard here to test questionable wolf/ dog hybrids up against vampires. Good luck and be careful

Are there any traits you've witnessed, either in your pup or her mother if you've had the chance to spend time w/ her, which seem more wolf-like than dog-like? There's a fair amount of anecdotal evidence that wolf-dog crosses are more opinionated (my term) than any dog breed, even the independent-thinking ones.

Any pictures?

Well as of today, I've had her for a week now. Do you have some examples of what you're meaning?

She hasnt has any obedience training so I feel like she doesn't want to listen that well, but she also doesn't really know any commands besides sit and lay down.

I'll try and post a picture. I'm on my phone so I'll see if I can figure it out lol

Although you can't post a photo here, you can provide a link to photos you may have online.

Things like noticeable wariness around strange people (not just being a little shy--more like 'Who the heck is that I don't know that person I'm not going anywhere near them' wariness), an ultra-strong prey drive (not just chasing small animals, but chasing them w/ a 100% laser-like focus and the intent of eating whatever is being chased), and a strong dislike/disregard for training (since you said she knows "Sit" and "Down", this doesn't appear to be an issue). There's others, but I need to pull some of my sources first....

I'll look at the pix later this AM when I'm on a faster 'Net connection (home computer has dialup).

LOOKS LIKE A GERMAN SHEPHERD TO ME. PEOPLE LOVE TO BELIEVE BUT I MAINTAIN ALL DOGS ARE WOLVES THAT IS FACT. Recently PBS did a two part series on the dog. Ray Coppinger has dedicated his life to canid studies. I trust his judgment. VIRTUALLY EVERY DOG IS A WOLF.

WATCH THIS TWO PART SERIES IF YOU CAN - IT MAY ANSWER YOUR QUESTION

dogs and wolves share a common ancestor - that doesn't mean dogs are wolves any more than people are apes. Apparently dogs are much more closely related to each other than to living wolves:

She's a gorgeous pup, and from the looks of her she's 100% GSD. Lovely dog; she photographs very well.
