    They're Canines and will happily accept man as their pack if raised that way from puppy hood.
    Same with the Fox.

    “Sandra L. Piovesan bled to death after being mauled by a pack of nine wolf dogs that she had raised as pets and was so devoted to that she once told a neighbor they "give me unqualified love."

    Just happened across this -

    Florida Sanctuary Rescues Giant Wolf 'Yuki' From Kill Shelter

    From the article -

    "Founded in 2001, the Shy Wolf Sanctuary takes in 60 captive-bred or rescued animals every year."

    Those who think they want a wolf cross might want to donate $ cuz they're very expensive to keep.

    For those who have one, get yourself some good insurance because bite cases involving this wolf mix are a sure win for the victim. Also be aware that you may not bee able to vaccinate which could lead to more liability for the owner. Helpful is to alter but you still need a very high fence as well as being buried in the ground.

    I'm sure you can find accounts of most large breeds killing someone.

    Not true. Many are just fine until they sexual maturity. That's why these sanctuaries are full.

    DEFINITELY not true of foxes either. I just rehabbed two kits. Obviously, as a rehabber, my job is the opposite of taming them but I've worked quite a few and they are simply not hard wired to be what humans want them to be.

    There's a series of videos on You Tube by a guy who kept a for as a pet. Very educational and really shows what its like to live with a fox.

    When I was a kid and bringing home every wild animal I came across, my father told me that whatever an animal does in the wild, he will continue to do in your home.

    This is one of the kits I rehabbed and released.

    Neutering helps with aggression.

    Yeah. I have a standing rule. Never allow an animal into your home that you can’t kill in single combat...

    That's a learned behavior.
