Interested in buying a wolf or a wolf-dog? After spending 30 years picking up the pieces for people whose pets didn’t work out like they wanted, we ask you to reconsider. We estimate that 80% of the quarter million wolf-dog puppies that are sold in the U.S. each year are killed before their first birthday. Wolves and wolf-dogs need special care, and don’t fit into the standard definition of what a pet should be. There are certainly special individuals who can provide loving homes to these incredible creatures, but research and preparation is essential.
