So, a person nearby to me raises wolves, now, they actually have them as pet wolves and are raised as such, not animals stolen from the wild, they have been raised in homes for generations. I want one. What does the pit think of a pet wolf?

It would be awesome, but I think they can have rather unpredictable behavior.

Taking care of a wolf can be very dangerous. They aren't fully domesticated. They are wild animals and should only be taken in by experienced owners. Ideally they shouldn't be made pets at all.

Here's a little sum up I found: If you want a wolf, get a dog. Dogs are wolves people can live with.

Alright what is that from cause it sounds like something awesome from my childhood.

And to TS, I suggest getting the wolf. But the new thing to do is pet combos. Get another pet!! I suggest a rabbit. They make good pet combo pets.

lolz, thats probably what i'll do, I just think it would be awesome to have a wolf, other than the fact that it would destroy my house and most likely eat my cat.

Dude, I have raised wolves, and I can tell you, they are nothing like normal dogs, they will kill almost anything, they will completely tear your shit apart, and by your shit I ofcourse mean EVERYTHING IN YOUR HOUSE.

They are wild animals and it is unlikely that you would be able to cope with it unless you spent pretty much all day with it, otherwise it will always distrust you.

And because they have not been domesticated over the thousands of years that dogs have, they have not been bred to have a good temperament, hence they can be quite viscious, in short it would probably be a very bad idea.

You'd also be forcing it against it's nature- remember that wolves are pack animals used to living over a large range. It took many, many generations of domestication to get dogs to where they are now. Having a wolf in your back garden on it's own just doesn't seem right. And lone wolves tend to be the stronger, more dangerous wolves.

Well, my brother works as a wolf behavioral specialist, and he deals with this question quite a lot. He tells me that essentially, it is an extremely bad idea, as they aren't domestic animals. They also tend to get incredibly depressed when not given in a proper habitat, doing proper wolf things (such as running around, hunting and socialising with other wolves). In essence, it is cruel to think that you could keep a wolf as a cuddly pet.

Deliriumbassist speaks much, much truth. My brother would be proud.

I don't like it. Part of what separates wolves from dogs is the fact that they're wild animals. They aren't meant to have masters, and I can't see it going over well anyway. Instinct is a powerful force.

If it were me, I wouldn't do it. Seems like a very bad idea.
#18
my dad used to have to have a pet wolf. but he's horrible with animals so he had to give her away. If you have lots of experience with animals go for it, otherwise get a dog. If you're really heart set on getting a wolf, try for a mix breed. I used to have a 3/4 Shepard 1/4 timber wolf, and it was like having a normal dog, only more energetic and wolf looking. The only reason I had part wolf is because my mom has experience raising full wolves.

That's an oddly specific career path...

Anyway, getting a wolf sounds awesome, but it's probably impractical. Simpler solution? Don't bother, but tell everyone you do have a wolf, but it's too vicious for them to see it in case they die.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

I wouldn't be too sure about that.. If the wolf is born in captivity, and doesn't experience the natural wolfy things that wolves do, would it really miss them and react negatively towards not having them?

One of my friends had a wolf as a pet, and his family had it since it was a pup. It was actually a playful and nice creature..

Animal instinct is something you cannot root out through captivity, even from birth. A wild animal is a wild animal. It requires many, many generations of domestication. Maybe your friend was just lucky?
