There are rumors that the wolf population includes hybrids between dogs and wolves, but extensive studies of wolf researchers at SLU and their Norwegian colleagues show that it is not true. - We have better genetic information about the Scandinavian wolf population than are available on any other wild predator population in the world, says Johan Mansson, Researchers at the Department of Ecology at SLU.

The Scandinavian wolf researchers working together on research Skandulv. Since 1983 they have collected DNA from more than 1 200 individuals, including five of the seven wolves who founded the population in Scandinavia (DNA profiles on the other two have been reconstructed with the DNA of their offspring). Samples have been collected from dead and living wolves (blood and tissue) and from droppings, urine and hår.- With all this information we can reconstruct a family tree and track individuals' origins and kinship until the wolves who founded the population, says Johan Mansson, coordinator of Skandulv.DNA analysis makes it possible to distinguish the territorial couples, confirm the rejuvenation of the territories and to identify and monitor individuals of particular interest (For example, immigrants from the Finnish-Russian population).The results show that the first two founders of the Scandinavian wolf population descended from the Finnish-Russian wolf population. They were not the descendants of any remnant of the original Scandinavian tribe or from wolves in zoos or hybrid progeny of wolf and dog. The remaining five wolves that have migrated in recent times is also derived from the Finnish-Russian wolf population. Although there could be involvement of dog uteslutas.Däremot it is true that wolves can hybridize in the wild with several species of the canine family, including hundar.- However, all available data indicates that it is extremely rare, says Johan Månsson.I Scandinavia is a single case documented. The female and a dog had puppies in Norway 1999. Three of the five hybridavkommorna were killed and none of the two remaining pups have been found again in 15 years inventories and DNA analysis. Single hybrids between wolves and dogs have identified genetic markers in Latvia. Some cases are also reported from including Bulgaria, Italy and the Iberian Peninsula. It is also known that there has been historical. So, for example, the black color available in some North American wolves originated from dogs, maybe introduced to North America 12 000–14 000 years ago.
