      When considering a pet wolf, wolf hybrid, or wolfdog as your next pet, make sure you understand what you are getting yourself into. Although there are definitely joys of ownership, it can also be a very stressful and potentially dangerous relationship.

      We received a purebred wolf (has no canine in him) that is part timber wolf and part red wolf. He was rescued from a breeder that was intending to make wolf hybrid puppies from him.


      He became our pet at the young age of 5 weeks old. We have raised him as a member of the family, and he has proven to be an excellent pet. However, there is far much more work required than with raising a dog!

      A wolf cannot be treated and trained in the same way as a dog. One reason for this is that wolves do not have an inbred instinct to please a master.


      • As the owner, you must show that you are the dominant one…and you must never be challenged. The wolf must show respect for you, or it needs to be given to a stronger handler. Wolves are typically very difficult to train, and as such can be very frustrating to deal with.

        The other major concern is the safety of owning a wolf. When a wolf is mixed with a dog, there really is no way of

        knowing its personality until it grows older. A wolf, or wolf hybrid / wolf dog should never be trusted alone with children and needs to be watched carefully by a competent handler. The animal must be secured, and should not have any opportunity to escape.

        In short, our pet has proven to be an amazing experience…but it is one that is probably not appropriate for the general population. We would rate the experience as a 4.
