Cool article. Does this change the tamaskan breed standard in any way?

Just read it, I absolutely love the where it says "Wolves’ tails when they walk will not curl up or over their backs like a dogs tail will. Wolves’ tails are extremely straight. Even dog breeds that have straighter tails (Like German Shepherds for example) will still have a slight curl to them when they run or walk/prance. A Wolf’s tail will however depending on their mood, show a lot of different emotions, and can be held in various positions from straight out in a horizontal position, to straight up in a vertical one, and everything in between."

It helps illustrate a point that many wolf-dog expert such as Rowan B. from British Columbia has been trying to make, that any wolf with a tail that wiggles so high while trotting is likely a dog or a wolfdog cross that is lower than an upper-mid content.
