The Dire Wolf Project is a breeding program by the American Alsatian Breeder’s Club that started in 1988 with the goal of “bringing back the look of the large prehistoric Dire Wolf in a domesticated dog breed”. This faux dire wolf is actually a companion dog breed known as an American Alsatian, achieved through generations of crossing Alaskan Malamutes, German Shepherds, English Mastiffs, and Great Pyrenees.
