Hi all. I have a younger , nuetered wolf -hybrid that I found about 7 months ago. I love Wolf-man so much, but we live in the country on a dirt road and our only neighbors have chickens which Wolf-man has decided to kill. I feel terrible. Before I started my own business and was home more he stayed inside and is completely potty trained, good with cats, kittens, parrot, horses and other dogs- and is great with my 4 year old. I just cannot tie him up or risk himbeing shot for doing something natural to him. I found him on the highway and no one claimed him but he looks full blood wolf. He is great and I will miss him but I would rather him live without me than not live at all. If anyone is interested please email me.<br><br>
Thanks<br><br>
I am in Oklahoma<br><br>

He's a full blood wolf? So that means he is actually a wolf right? I wonder how he landed up where you found him.

I don't see how he could be full blood but he loks full blood my vet thinks he is high percent wolf and malamute cross. I think he may have gotten out of a truck b/c where I found him was near a truck stop (the only thing near) and he loves to ride in a car, and is completely potty trained.

I know and I would never go out and purchase and look for one, but he is a wonderful pet- just not if you have chickens nearby. He acts completely like a dog... and I am just saying what my vet said- I do not know where he came from- so I am just guessing!

How old is he? Wolf hybrids do actually "change" at about 2 years of age and usually become very unsafe at that age as they take on much more of their wolf ancestory.<br><br><br><br>
I would find a sanctuary. As a malamute lover, I don't recomend passing him off as a mal because if (when) he hurts someone, it's a mark against mals and makes it harder for all of us.

I will be up front and honest about what I know of him. I can't find any sanctuary close or any other alternatives

that is a wolf rescue group in oklahoma...perhaps they can help. otherwise consider contacting your local humane society for more info.

I also vote for the sanctuary route. After a small bit of searching, I found that many states have laws regarding wolfdogs, so you might actually want to look into that before giving the dog to someone else.

I met a guy at a gas station a few weeks ago who had a pet wolf. It was 10 months old and absolutely beautiful, but I couldn't help wondering if he knew what he was going to have when it matured. I also wonder if he knew they were illegal to have as pets here, because he told me, a complete stranger, it was a wolf.<br><br><br><br>
I agree with finding a sanctuary. Hopefully the link above will help. If there's some kind of cost with getting him there, I'd be willing to chip in.

i just would like to say one thing... wolves are not bad or harmful at all they arent even really pets, they are more of a companion. well there has some been some, rare, cases of a wolf attacking a human but there was very very good reason!!!! most people think when they get a wolfdog they are going to have this huge mean beast to protect them and there stuff, but in fact that is just the opposite of a wolf. wolves, by nature are very timid, and if someone were to break into your house the wolfdog would be the first to jump out the window and run away. most of the time the owner will corner and beat the wolfdog for not "doing its job" and when anything is cornered, scared and hurt natural instinct makes you fight back to defend yourself. its just a mistake that alot of poeple make when getting a wolf or wolfdog and in turn it costs them their lives and a bad reputation. poeple just need to take alot of time to research them and learn to understand them. here is a little info on percentages/breed and attitude/temperment... in wolfdogs the the higher percentage of wolf in the animal the better the companion, and the lower the percentage of wolf the more destructive and harmful it will be. The type of dog the animal has in it also determines different behavior trates like for example a wolf/malamute cross will result in a calmer, and more relaxed/ layed back animal while a wolf/husky cross will result in a animal that has to be the boss and will try to take over. i hope that helped anyone understand wolfdogs a little bit better and not think of them as some mean, savaged, wild animal that should never be considered as a pet or a companion. there is so so much more that needs to be explained and understood about them and i wish everyone would start takeing the time to do it for them! it took me years to get the right information and not just the bad gruesum stories that people have made up over the years. if anyone has any question or is interested in learning more dont hesitate to ask anything. thanx -Gina

actually i think wolf hybrids, rottweilers and pit bulls account for the most fatal and non fatal attacks on humans.<br><br><br><br>
wolves should not be kept as pets, and they should not be crossed with other dogs to make them more "docile" the dogs we think of as companions now took 20,000 to be domesticated and they are still unpredicatable. you think you can do it in a few litters by crossing the wolf with a malmute? gimme a break.<br><br><br><br>
people need to stop screwing with wild animals for their own selfish egotistical reasons.

a sanctuary doesn't need to be close... the wolf could be transported. I would start by calling your local no-kill shelter and see what they advise. I am positive they will know a sanctuary or rescue group.

there is a mistake i do agree on with you... i do not think people should breed dogs together with wolves, for the reason that when you add dog into wolf it makes it dangerous and destructive. i also think that wolves should be left alone in the wild and not brought into captivity cause that is where they are happiest and meant to be. the main reason why i say that is because most, and by most i mean almost all, everyone doesnt know how to deal with them. they think they are going to be like an ordinary pet dog, but really they are so much more they are kinda like a human themselves. i know you're probably thinking im stupid but its just something you cant appriciate untill you've experienced it... but i strongly strongly recommend to someone that is thinking about getting a wolf or wolfdog to go learn all they can even possibly hands on from a breeder or rescue before they get one, cause thats exactly how the problems happen, because of the owners not the animals. also about the killings from wolf dogs i do agree on the other dogs being high on the list but i still stand by they had very very good reason for their actions!!!! Domestic dogs are more likely to attack for no reason, and they will attack anything not just people, wolves will wait untill they have no other choice or if that owner did something horible to the wolfdog first and the animal is just trying to disaplin them, and usually the owner wouldnt get any less if they did the same to another human.

if it would help i can contact one of the wolfdog rescues here, theres 2, and see if they can help or know what to do. one of them is more of a sanctuary and the other is a rescue. also if you want to find a experienced loving home i can take him or i can see if my friend can she helps run one of the rescues and is an ex breeder. she was the one that taught me about them.
