These are a recent obsession tbh, I desperately want one in real life but they're crazy expensive due to the fact that there's only a few registered breeders. All are in the USA, and one is the creator of the breed Lois Schwarz and the other breeders were personally trained in creating the perfect alsatian lines by Lois Schwarz herself. 

Unfortunately this breed is not AKC registered but below is the NAABA's breed standard guide

National American Alsatian Breeders' Association (

The American Alsatian is a dog breed that was recently developed in California in the 1980s to resemble the now-extinct Dire Wolf. It's a large dog breed at about 25 to 32 inches tall, weighing around 100 pounds. The average lifespan of the American Alsatian is between 9 to 13 years. 

The American Alsatian is a large-breed companion dog. Its coat is medium in length and can be either gold, silver, black sable or cream. Silver sable coloring is the most desirable. White or black sable markings are extremely rare. The eyes range from light brown to yellow and are almond shaped with a wolfish stare. The ears stand erect and the black-tipped tail hangs down touching the pasterns. The head and hips are broad with a strong, dark muzzle. The toes are slightly splayed and the bones on the leg are large and round. The chest is deep and the body is longer than tall.

The American Alsatian is a great family companion dog. They are extremely loyal to their family members and accept children and other pets. The American Alsatian remains aloof to strangers, but is never fearful or aggressive. They are watchful and intelligent, learn quickly and will respond to the softest sounds. With the proper amount of exercise the American Alsatian is extremely calm and quiet, even when left alone for extended periods of time. They do not initiate play unless encouraged. This breed tends to have a low prey drive and activity level. They do not have a tendency to bark, whine, dig or run the fence. They respond well to light correction. Thunderstorms or gun shots do not bother them. Because the American Alsatian is very attached to its family, they readily choose to stay close to the comfort of home. Socialize well. Be sure to always be your dog’s consitent pack leader. 


Adult Males 25 - 28 inches (63.5 - 71 cm)

Colors are as follows: silver wolf gray, gold wolf gray, tri-wolf gray showing both gold and silver, dominant black, or cream. Noses always remain black and the skin should be dark in pigmentation. Ears are outlined in black as well as the tip of the tail. Muzzles can be white or cream. Dark muzzles lighten with the years, but the nose should always remain black no matter the color of the muzzle
