  1. Doesn’t apply to all dog breeds. Eskimo breeds in general, and Huskies/Malamutes in particular, are much more similar to wolves in this respect than to most dogs. Their canines are long and curved. Same applies to Alsatians and many mountain shepherd breeds.

  2. Again, Huskies, Malamutes, and other Eskimo breeds in particular use the howl as their main form of communication, along with whines and yips. They rarely bark.

  3. I’m pretty sure that whomever wrote this, aside from having poor control of the English language, has no idea what they’re talking about. Most of the comparisons between wolves and dogs are completely ridiculous, only one or two of these ten “facts” actually being factitious.
