Due to technical difficulties, portions of the country and other parts of the world were unable to listen to our broadcast, therefore Wolfdog Radio is replaying this most important episode regarding the Saarloos Wolfdog!
Wolfdog Radio is pleased to present an “Introduction to the Saarloos” Wolfdog!
“Leendert Saarloos (1884-1969) born and raised in Dordrecht (the Netherlands) was a lover of the German Shepherd Dog. In the 1930’s, he linked a German Sheppard to a she wolf to regain the natural characteristics in this breed. These wolf-dog crossings were called European Wolf dogs. At the end of the 1950s some of these dogs were trained as guidance for blind people. “
We are honored to be interviewing Gerrie Pols and Julie Miyax Bradshaw, both involved with Saarloos wolfdogs:
Gerrie Pols is chairperson of the AVLS Dutch Breed Club of Saarloos Wolfdogs.
“It’s like Saarloos can put a spell on you, that makes you fall in love with them”
Julie Miyax Bradshaw, founder and chair of the SWDC (Saarloos Wolfdog Club UK).
“At that time, I was a breeder of Lupine Dogs exclusively…a type of companion wolfdog which encompasses all ethically bred wolflike and wolfdogs. I fell in love with the Saarloos breed!”
Both women continue down a path with an animal that is fiercely disputed, controversial and more rewarding when a bond is forged. Both women have allowed our Wolfdog Radio audience to join them briefly on their journey.
and of course….the Saarloos…
