9 – Wolf Hybrid
While all canines are relatives of wolves, a portion of the pooch species around today are still straightforwardly crossbred with these wild creatures. Due to the innate risk in reproducing a wild creature with a local one, they’re often very unpredictable. To such an extent that numerous states have made it illegal to possess a wolf half breed. Wolf half breeds were in charge of the deaths of 14 persons in the U.S. between 1978 to 1998.
The cross-breeding also has implications on how aggressive the hybrid will be. Crossing with a dog with a protective nature, e.g. a German Shepherd can breed out the wolf’s shy retiring nature, making a less predictable more dangerous dog. Tipping the scales at up to 55Kg , with force and insight of a wolf – in the wrong setting these puppies can possibly be dangerous.
