had a husky that kinda lived off the land around our cabin.. she was super friendly, anyway she got into a wolf pack was the alpha female, and she would bring the entire pack down and play around us.. if a wolf got to friendly with us she would let it know to drat off.. anyway she gets pregnant and one day strolls down with a pup in her mouth and left it on our doorstep and walked off.. she was like, hey here's a half wolf take care of it, bye.. we couldn't keep it because we lived in the city.. a permanent resident at cabin took the dog but after after a few years the bastard had it put down because it would travel 20 km down the road to eat cats. stupid dratin cats.. it was the best dog, one blue eye, paws the size of your face!! to wild to be penned up.

I just need to say I don't care what kind of dog you have, please keep them on a leash in public. I don't care if they're friendly or not, no really please don't try to assure me. Just keep it on a leash. Thanks.

Wild animals belong in the wild
Oops! I accidentally skipped that part @thefatviking! My bad!
I totally agree. I disagree with the practice of "taming" wild breeds for domestication, even through cross breeding.
I got bitten by a "half dog half wolf" when I was a little cat, it was being held by it's owner, but it took a small chunk out of me anyhow. I still can hear those fateful words:
"Don't be afraid, he won't bite ya!"
Don't get me wrong! I LOVE wolves! (Elfquest geek) But I'd rather own a Russian Wolfhound...

@thefatviking: Nope, Polar Bears are easily the biggest, meanest and most dangerous predators of humans on the planet.
Hands down, it's a "no contest".
Many Inuit (Eskimo) stories warn of NEVER keeping a bear as a pet.
It's true: wolves will test your dominance almost constantly: but so will poorly trained dogs. I've seen "dominant" Chihuahuas and West Highland Terriers... it's not a pretty sight...

to the fat viking - You, kind sir, are full of it. Yes, wolves are hard to keep as pets. No, wolves should not be left alone with children; nor should a dog, which are much more apt to attack a human. Wolves are not vicious. They are actually quite timid. In the 1800s, when we were busy eradicating them, trappers would bait a covered pit. When the pack fell in, they would calmly hamstring them one by one as the pack cowered in the corner. Look it up. Oh, by the way, Katuala (lLittle Sister), one of my wolfdogs, left me me with her hours old pups that I had helped her deliver while she went for water. Allthough only the alpha pair in the pack breed, the other females act as "aunties". If these people had attempted to tame a grown wolf, I'd agree, but this family is blessed with two of the most loyal, sweet animals in the world. One last thing, when one of Katula's friendliest pups somehow escaped our 10' fence, & went bounding over to the neighbor's, he was shot

"Wolves especially are always violently competing for dominance, and you don't want to be the one being dominated."
This just shows how effing BADASS our ancestors were.

This is a terrible idea.
Wolves are some of the most instinct driven predators there are, combined with a pack mentality, and a constant desire to rule the pack this is the perfect setup for disaster.
Wolves are extremely hard to keep as pets, and they quite often attack their trainers if they think they are weak, like say for example A GOD DAMNED CHILD!
Wild animals belong in the wild, I think most rational people believe that. And if you don't think so you probably haven't spent enough time around wild animals.

Don't be fooled, these wolves are still killers at heart. These are still WILD animals and they've turned on many people attempting this same rehabilitation.
