A serious question about dogs and wolf howling

Is it a thing, where dogs’ heads get all twisty when they hear a wolf howl? Some of these mutts seriously look like their heads are going to pop right off. Observe:

German shepherd howling:

Pomeranian howling:

Pit bull howling:

I tried this on my my bull terrier, and she did not howl, or even perk an ear, or lift her head. That she is a people-dog, not a dog-dog, might have been my first indication that she would have zero interest, but I tried. Then again, better that she didn’t start yowling — bullies are bad enough without teaching them bad habits on top.

    It’s interesting how these dogs cock their heads and seem to ponder before they respond. One wonders whether they feel kinship with fellow creatures.
