There was a lady who was eaten by her 'half' wolves last weekend. They are NOT pets. Don't confuse domesticated animals with 'wild' animals that happen to be caught or raised from birth. They are still WILD.
You can own one if she is less them 75% wolf. More then that you must have a permit. They are really not like dogs and you really should research them if you intend on getting one. They are not recommended to have around children.
Wolves are WILD ANIMAS they are DANGEROUS. A wolf is not tge same as a domesticated dog. Ownership of wild animals as pets is never recommended. They are very unpredictable, even when raised from a puppy. It could seem fine then one day just turn in you and rip you to shreds. Wild animals are always wild. Which makes it unfair and cruel to the wolf as well, keeping it in a pen or on a leish when its need for freedom is coded genetically. Even the wolf/dog mixes are unpredictable, tho perhaps a little less dangerous.
Wolves are wild animals and it is not right for anyone to domesticate them. Domestication is a process that takes centuries within an animal species. It is unfair to the wolf because they will stripped away from their natural habitat not able to run among their species, hunt and produce off springs and the simple fact is they are dangerous natural born predators. The only reason anyone should have raising any wild animal in captivity is for conservation purposes.
It may seem exotic to own a wolf, but it is not. They are genetically different from dogs after all the centuries we've been domesticating dogs; that's a fact. You would never be completely safe, nor would your family, guests, or other pets. It's a fun dream, but don't try to make it come true, please, for your own good.
IN many states in the USA people do keep full bred and wolf/dog hybrids all the time. Sometimes legally, sometimes illegally. Every state's law is different. It's generally not a great idea. Though I'd trust a well trained wolf more than a well trained Pitt Bull.
my mother as a child had an orphaned deer and they fed it pickels and sugar cookies. all was well and they raised it to maturity then a neighbor was mean and reported them and the deer got released into the wild. they also had pet raccoons and were admirable pets. raccoons are severly misunderstood and are good pets but my moms grandfather loved his hunting dogs more and decided to train them with the raccoons :(. not all wild animals are bad to have but if raised from a very young age then are accpetable and only if the authoriies are aware
