Cool Pet wolf ;)

Yes, I have a pet wolf. He is domesticated and his name is Maya.

We have the right to keep him because when he was a pup, he was brought into a wildlife conservation place after he was attacked by a couger (mountain lion, as some might say). They made him friendly but were overloaded with animals and could hardly find time to bottle feed him, so we took him in after we got a licence.

He is a very sweet puppy who acts just like a normal dog. Though he likes to play hunt with our cats, he has learned not to hurt them, just hold them down gently with his paws. He is also good with our horses. In fact, the mini horses let him go for rides!

The only pic I have on my computer is a pic of him when he was 11-months-old in the wildlife place. He lookes like a husky or something but he's purebred wolf.

Very neat, but please do be careful with him. They are not like any other domesticated breed, and need special attention.
Would love to see more pictures :)

Aww! I've never seen anyone with a real pet wolf. I mean, I know people have them but usually it's like private wildlife sanctuaries. That's so neat! he's adorable :)

He's beautiful!

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Agreed 110%. They cannot be treated nor trusted like any other dog. They are wild. It's taken centuries to tame modern dogs; a wolf is a wild animal, and needs to be treated completely differently from any other dog.

Yes, even domestic dogs can get a little harried (no pun intended).
