Peope want to own a piece of the wild, and they often say that the wolf is their spiritual sign or totem animal. Unfortunately, they don’t realize that it’s not really the same thing as having a wolf in their living room.”
Wolfdogs are perhaps the most misunderstood — and, many would argue, mismanaged — animals in America. Advocates say they can be wonderful pets, while opponents argue that they’re unpredictable, untrainable and inherently dangerous. They’re permitted in some places, forbidden in others and are showing up on breedban lists, along with Pits and other so-called “dangerous breeds.”
Wolfdogs are canines that have been bred with wild wolves, therefore share stronger connections with the appearance and instincts of the wolf. They look absolutely stunning, but there is legal and moral dilemmas to consider if you fancy yourself as a real life Jon Snow.
They are more powerful and cunning than domestic dogs, which are no match for them. Remember, what they kill or damage is your responsibility. Though the rabies vaccine for domestic dogs probably works for wolves and wolf-dogs, no study has been done to confirm this.
This is why Wolves and Wolfdogs CANNOT be kept as pets and how it can be abusive to try.There are loads of dogs out there that look like wolves, so why not pick one of them? They have the temperament of a domestic animal.
