Your 1/2 wolf is a good example. Here in New Mexico we have a wolf rescue. There are dozens of these hybrids there that cannot be kept as pets any longer because they are dangerous from the highly developed pack mentality that caused competition between them and their pack/owners. These animals will spend the rest of their lives in dog runs because they cannot be released into the wild. Sure some may be great housepets but how many are destroyed or given to rescues every year? The good ones are probably no comfort to the many that die or are caged. So are say 1000 good hybrids of this type type worth the need to destroy 1000 or 100 or 10 or 1 of these animals because someones thinks 'wow, I can own a part wolf' ?JMHO
