I am considering a part wolf hybrid but I need to get him his shots and get himneutered, but some people have said that he will be taken away from me and the vet won't give him his shots...is it legal? where can I go to get this information?

I'm not sure. But since wolves and dogs are the same species (a dog is simply a long-domesticated and bred wolf) there is an argument that the term "hybrid" is not even applicable. I would check with the St. Paul Animal Control Center. They offer licenses for 3 classifications: "Dog," "Potentially Dangerous Dog," and "Dangerous Dog." The latter two can be licensed but also must be implanted with a microchip.

You should not enter into this commitment lightly. A hybrid should be raised from a very young age and with another hybrid, they need companions of their own species. They need a large (40' X 40') enclosed pen at least 8 feet high, and should never be chained up. St Paul likely does not offer much in the way of opportunities or locations that could provide the space to house and exercise them adequately.

The fact that you seem to be mostly concerned with his shots and neutering leads me to think you have not thought about or researched the long term responsibilities and care that is needed. You will also have to deal with the prejudices of authorities and neighbors and one small slip-up will likely result in your hybrid being taken away and destroyed.

Carefully rethink your plan and consider adopting a needy dog from the St Paul Humane Society (651) 645-7387. St Paul is not the place to raise and care for a wolf hybrid.

Good advice. Also, there is the Animal Shelter in St. Paul. I adopted a dog two years ago and the little guy is the most wonderful dog I have ever had. He was scared and timid for awhile, but all he needed was a good home.

You will probably lose your homeowner's insurance if you have a wolf hybrid too. No, you don't have to tell them but they do spot checks and if they find out, you will be canceled immediately. Also, if you have a claim made against your insurance for a bite, for example, they won't have to pay out on that claim for failure to disclose pertinent information.

Be very careful of wolf hybrids - they are not dogs and have instincts and behavior of a wolf. My friends wolf-hybrid would at times act out as a wild animal not a domesticated pet. It was a very large/powerful animal and could be imtimidating. She eventually had to have it put down when it bit a child. There are so many great dog breeds - a wolf hybrid is still a wolf!

Wolf dog hybrids are actually illegal in the Twin Cities area. They are unpredictable after they reach sexual maturity. Do your research and obtain information from QUALIFIED individuals such as your local authorities or those not only in canine veterinary and training fields, but also check with those experienced with wildlife as well. I hope this helps.
