Re: Can a wolf be a pet?

No, they cant be pets. People can own wolves, though they have USDA licensed facilities as it would be illegal to own them otherwise. Ownership of wolfdogs varies from state to state. For example, in my state (NJ) you can own any wolfdog as long as there is dog in there, even if its 1%, while in pla...

Re: Wolves as Pets: Your Opinions.

Low contents are indeed predictable and trainable, but that is because a low content is considered 1-50% wolf and therefore, more of them is dog than wolf, so therefore their behaviors are more like that of dogs than that of wolves. In theory, someone can have a low content wolfdog as a pet and hav...

Re: Wolves as Pets: Your Opinions.

But they have the ability to be unpredictable, yes? (Just like your regular domestic dogs/pets/animals/whatever can be unpredictable.) I can't tell whether you are acknowledging that or not by saying they don't "turn" on their owners. Yes, but normally they are perfectly predictable and as some of ...

Re: Wolves as Pets: Your Opinions.

I cannot believe this topic is still going! Thank you everyone for your feedback, we all appreciate it. Wolves and wolf-dogs, if kept as pets, will eventually turn on their owners. Wolves need miles of space, and when they're confined in an enclosure, it's like a human being trapped in a bathroom. ...

Re: All About Wolfdogs: Info & Guide

I believe your question was directed at OkamiShiranui123, but I would like to post my own thoughts as well, as the creator of this thread. I have not personally owned wolfdogs, but I have worked with hybrids of different percentages (low, mid, and high) for a very long time. First of all, the term ...

Re: All About Wolfdogs: Info & Guide

Having a wolfdog can be pretty cool but it has it's dangers. As you can see wolf dogs are crossbred between a dog and a wolf so they still have the wild gene in them. Some things can set off their wild gene inside so I would be careful if you own one or work with them, though as long as you don't m...

Re: If you had a wolf, what would you name it?

If the wolf was a pet, i don't agree with that, so i would give the animal to a wolf charity to realease into the wild. That wouldnt work.. you can give it to a sanctuary or rescue but once brought or born into captivity a wolf cannot be released into the wild. Its like setting it up for death, he/...

Re: Wolves as Pets: Your Opinions.

I think we can all agree that wolves are most certainly not pets. But what we need to understand is that most 'wolves' that people claim to own are really not wolves but wolfdogs or poorly bred dogs. Wolves are not very common at all. Also, wolfdogs are very rarely the product of F1 wolf to dog bre...

Re: How close did you ever get to a wolf?

I have seen wolves at Lakota Wolf Preserve in NJ and the WCC The closest to a wolf I have ever pet was 98% wolf, which I do quite frequently and take him for walks, etc. Here is a picture of him on one of our walks. I work with wolfdogs of call content from low/no to very high - near pure. http://i1...
