Many wolves and wolf hybrids end up in rescue kennels because they make neither good pets nor are they a good watch breed. Although amazingly intelligent (they have a brain on an average of 30% larger than a dog) they don't bark and tend to be fearful of strangers. Wolf-dogs consider you to be the alpha wolf of the pack. As far as they are concerned, it's YOUR job to protect them. Wolves and hybrids are rambunctious and often destructive if kept indoors. "Generally, animals with a higher percentage of wolf DNA have more wild traits - they are adept at escaping, destructive to households and hard to housebreak. They usually make poor watchdogs because they are shy of strangers." Although I would love to have a wolf, I don't think it is fair to the animal to expect them to perform as a domesticated super dog.
