Thanks john for your comment!
Do you know more about that breeding programm of those "greek shepherd dogs"?

My dogs sister had the same face but her body looked like the German "Kleiner Münsterländer". Sadly she died in Greece.

beautiful boy -in Greece these these creatures are called wolf dogs its their given description as a breed type-they are very similar to the "old german shepherd " renamed "german herding dog" -and may be derived from them -the 'greek shepherd dog' almost became extinct due to it being crossed bred with mutts -there is now a breeding program to restore it and it being supplied free to shepherds in northern Greece as a flock guardian-greek words can assume many meanings -so a flock guardian a protector against wolves such as your boy above when translated to english would come out as wolf dog -the thing is the greeks know what they mean-they are not too bothered if no one else gets it - it can also be taken into consideration ,in northern Greece illegal breeding of the eurasian wolf has being going on for centuries -but when the hybrids get to an unmanageable age they are dumped- its possible a very few might survives in the wild -and possible they could breed back in with a domestic dog -so in a greek rescued dog the genes could comprise of may breeds - -by the way well done for the rescue - i have two greek rescues one is a full blow wolf dog of unknown origins
