Dog Breeds

  • Golden Jackal

    Golden Jackals look much like a smaller, lighter version of the grey wolf.

  • Group: Wild Canids
    Lifespan: 10–16 yr
    Height: 18–20 in
    Weight: 13–31 lb

  • Care

    Golden Jackals have heavy shedding periods in the spring and fall (when they blow their coats). And they commonly groom one another as part of their social interactions.

    Most active during the cooler parts of the day, Golden Jackals are fast animals when hunting prey—capable of running for long periods.

  • Disorders

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
