Q&A

I am curious about the wolf blood in the NAID. The breeders today state that there is no wolf blood in the breed, but yet, it is posted on this list that yes, wolf blood was used in the foundation stock. Do you have proof of this? Is this what you were told from the breeder that you got your NAID from? From what I have seen of the foundation stock on the Majestic View site, there is nothing that looks remotely like a wolf hybrid. Is it possible that you purchased a dog that was sold as a NAID but really is just a wolf hybrid? I assume that the person who answered the original question was a person who got their pup from someone other than Majestic View Kennels? Sure wish there was a DNA test that could be done to validate your claim. I assume that you are a owner, but yet you seems to be a expert. If I am not mistaken, I thought I read on another board that you are 17 years old and you own a female named Tala. Forgive me if I sound snide, but if I was a person who is trying to find out information about this breed, I would contact the breeders first, ask the questions, and then make my decision. I seem to remember reading that you considered yourself a expert. How can this be so? I guess you must have helped develop this breed. I'm impressed.

You are correct. There is no wolf in the NAID. There is a 17 year old girl who seems to feel like claiming there is wolf in her dog who is an NAID is cool. She has owned her dog for a year and now considers herself an "expert". Sad that so many unsuspecting people are being misled by her. I own 4 NAID's and they are incredible animals. It saddens me that this person is tainting the reputation of such an exceptional breed in order to feel special.


just to answer above a little, the founder did get in trouble for mixing wolf hybrid dogs in with her Naid stock years ago its visible on wikipedia. i think all wolf hybrids were removed since and now she uses dogs to make them look like wolves. i own one and hes the best. sweet, very smart, very gentle. she was gonna kill this pup because she thought it was gonna be a "wimp". i don't care for the breeder much but the breed itself, with the right family is a great dog. i wouldn't recommend it to the first time dog owner or anyone without a yard.

(April 2009) Native American Indian Dog Country of origin United States and Canada [hide]Traits [show]Classification and standards Not recognized by any major kennel club Dog (Canis lupus familiaris) The Native American Indian Dog (or NAID) is a dog breed sold in North America. It is reported to be related to husky, Malamute, Chinook,[1] and dogs from Indian reservations.[2] There have also been claims that there is recent wolf heritage in some of these dogs.[3] The Native American Indian Dog is frequently confused with others referred to as Indian dogs. Breeders say they are attempting to recreate a type of dog of similar appearance to those shown in historical illustrations and photographs of dogs in native American villages, as well as from stories told by Native Americans about dogs owned by their ancestors, when available.[2][4] In May 2008 a Native American Indian Dog was removed from a home in Michigan after local authorities suspected it of being a wolf-dog hybrid. The dog was later returned after tests and analysis were inconclusive either way.[1] A three-day-old baby boy was critically injured in July 2009 after the family's Native American Indian Dog picked the baby out of his crib and carried him 150 yards away from the family's house. Animal control took the dog away from the scene.[3][5] The boy's father said the dog was "a Native American Indian" breed and said the breeder told him the dog's grandparentage as "90 percent wolf."[6] According to information provided to Dogbreedinfo.com, the breed is described as instinctual and intelligent, cautious with strangers, but not vicious. They are not recommended for families with younger children as they are a large breed and may accidentally hurt them.[4] Some breeders register the NAID with the National Kennel Club or United Canine Association, but NAIDs are not registered with any major kennel clubs or registries.[4] The American Kennel Club and United Kennel Club do not recognize the Native American Indian Dog as a breed.[6] There are only six breeders of the dog authorized by the founding breeder,[7] although there are other breeders with breeding stock from the founding breeder, with generally the same appearance.
