|llombardo||Many years ago I took in a collie/wolf because she was running wild and the owners really could care less. She was about 4 months old and a beautiful dog that became attached to me very quickly. I was homeless at the time and had no clue what to do with her, but she was safer with me then her owners. Finally I caved in and was going back home, but my mom would not allow me to keep her, so I brought her to the police station. I was advised not to say what she was because its illegal here, but a police officer with 5 year old twins took her(knowing what her breed was). I seen her about 10 years later and she did very well with the family and was still getting around nicely. I have never seen another dog like her and I'm happy that I was able to find her a home being the breed she was. She looked more like a collie and that probably saved her life|

Carmspack, you are correct, no way of knowing if my friends first dog was a hybrid or just a shepherd mix of some sort. All I know is she was cool. I'm pretty sure the remaining 2 in her pack are the real deal, however, based on behavior alone.
Some of the counties here have restrictions on licensing hybrids. It's pretty easy to get around that by playing dumb and saying you have a "malamute mix".

There are breeds which are bred to look like wolves , but are all dog.
Finally remembered this one , Tamaskan Welcome to the Tamaskan Dog Register, the official worldwide registry. -- has a recall. Recall -- recall.

Taggart , wait a minute , why didn't I think of this before.
Just got an email from someone very pleased with the skin improvements on their formerly crusty itchy dog , and could they visit me at "market" next time I'm there to show me.
I answered -- people have come by spontaneously innocently walking their dogs in to the year round indoor farmers market , or being surreptitious and hiding little "pocket" dogs in their jackets . They get escorted out quickly. Later in the day I get the lecture about informing my customers to not have them bring dogs into the market (Waldorf) Health regulations prevent dogs and food products being in the same environment. I had to tell them that I would love to meet and see the results but they would have to send for me and I would visit them in the parking lot .
At one time I was hoping that I could take a pup to socialize , exposure and experience , have them in a crate at the back of my booth. Nope . No can do.
Health inspection is frequent to make sure everyone is practicing safe food handling . Licence to operate at stake .
no wolfs , no alligators - no dogs

No you cannot have pets in restaurants, some you can bring a dog to the outside patio, unless you have a service dog, you are not allowed to have them inside an establishment that serves food.
It is illegal to own a wolf in Canada. The only people who get permits are licensed wildlife rehabilitators. Some US states allow them, many do not, the only one that allows you to own a wolf as a pet without a permit is Nevada.

|TAR HEEL MOM||You can not legally vaccinate a wolf hybrid for rabies in the state of NC. All "domestically owned" dogs are required to have rabies by the age of 4 months.|

HI, I have strong feelings on this based on personal experience 20+ yrs ago, still fresh. I had a wolf hybrid. I knew both parents. Dad was a german shepherd (wonderful boy)mom a high % wolf, not social, totally skitzy, (I was young and dumb) My female "kasha" was sweet, and a totally alpha challenge. We, (her and I) had the challenge frequently, She could not be trained 100%. We could hike 15 miles, she would come home look at us and pee on the floor. When scolded, she would look you strainght in the eye and challenge me. I never could leave her with anyone. She wasn't mean, just very difficult to train and control. She got hit by a train when out with my husband, I cried but always felt it was a mixed blessing. Not what you want to deal with for the 12+ yrs a dog will live. She was beautiful.
My friend had on of her siblings, totally different dog, more like her shepherd dad. But.... another sibling bit his 2 nephews, unprovoked. They were children under the age of 10. One was bit in the face the other on the shoulder while walking by. This dog also attacked any small animals, dogs, cats ets. Our friend had to walk the dog only where he knew he would not encounter any people or dogs. I used to go into his house and feed this dog when mark was working. He was semi OK with adults. But once again, not to be trusted, strong prey drive is an understatement. This dog lived to be 14 yrs old. I have experience with a total of 5 of these dogs. They should not be bred. This is for the sake of the dogs as most people cannot deal with such behavior. So... whats the point?? It is not a pet, they are 1/2 wild animal.
