I know someone who got a half wolf half husky from the humane society after a drug bust at their next door neighbors house. All the other dogs had to be put around, but him and I believe one or two siblings of the same litter (it was a small litter), were young enough that they went to experienced handlers, and one of them was my friend and her parents. She had the wolfish coloring, but because she was half husky, I thought that she was all husky when I first met her, though she did look a bit different coat wise than your standard husky, but it was her mannerisms that caught me. She definitely acted more like a wolf, keeping her head low, making eye contact with you to prove who was dominant, ect., but she was very pretty, and generally pretty sweet. Kudos to you. I've always wanted to have a rescued wolf cross, and to be able to be with a wolf, but I don't think I'd ever want the responsibility of having a pure wolf even from a puppy stage. He is cute though. Please post more pictures.

He is beautiful!
As for the warnings, I read somewhere that wolves themselves aren't, generally, dangerous, and that it is the wolf/dog hybrids that are behind a lot of the attacks you hear about, but the wolves get the bad rep. It also said that typically, wolves are much more timid/flighty than dogs, not aggressive like you would think.
Being in Aus, we don't have wolves, but we do have dingos and with correct training and handling they can make good companions. I'm sure it'll be the same with Maya. Best of luck with him!

Do not follow where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

i've had wolves and wolf hybrids. My friends down the street rescued them and I used to work at a wildlife santuary. The hybrid I have now i've had since she was born, I had her mom and her dad was my friends wolf, she is now 12 yrs old and I love her dearly. What i've learned is that they are super loyal to one person and they will bond to that one person and will do anything for them. And most of them really love to cuddle! My girls name is Sasha and she is such a fluffy little cuddle muffin! She is uber cute, she is half wolf have lab/chow. It was an accident, but she looks like a mini white wolf! Not sure how because her dad was huge, the size of a great dane but her mom weighed only like maybe 45lbs. But she's so cute and fluffy

Very cute puppy but since it is a wolf I would have to assume that you would need to keep a constant "pack" structure. As a male he may be tempted to test your "alpha" status when he gets older. That's when things may get a bit dangerous.

Since wolves are also much smarter than most domestic dogs, keeping them confined can be quite a challanged. I've looked into keeping wolf hybrids and the list of things needed to keep them properly and safely confined was rediculous. The higher percentage of wolf in the dog, the more issues people seemed to have.

I hope he does well though! Keep us updated on his progress.

Hi TabbyNeko!
Here's mine shortly after/during taming, he's a Dingo(Canis Lupus Dingo) that was caught in a compound.


The picture is from 1986. They are different, mainly more hectic to take care of and their emotional isms are much more distinct and worrying.
When it matures it will give you decent shock that actually means nothing much as danger for the point.

You can read about here:

Or
From this forum site for wolves I recently wrote,
http://www.wild-canidae-conservation-forum.netne.net

Note to RedHawk:
Dingos are a wolf that comes from Thailand and is in part 1000's of years back part of the Indian Penninsula wolf Canis Lupus Pallipes.
"Lupus" effectively means wolf as species classification.
