The hardest thing about this wolf/dog breed is that they are not accepted in either pact. I have seen one in Northern Ontario who had been rejected from both packs. He did not how to survive on his own...yes he was getting by, but struggling from not having a pack to belong too. Also many passengers who were passing by were "trying to be helpful by feeding him off the highway." This thus made him more dependent on mankind, not on instinct.

Totally ridiculus video. Stupid guys playing at scarring people. Obviously they could have done exactly the same video with a chihuahua, but it would not be played on NGC.

Some of the scenes were staged with "tamed" wolves & wolf-dog.  Especially at the end of the show.

Not all hybrids are the same. I met a couple of wolf-dogs.  One was a little aggressive.  Just as much as an aggressive big dog.  It was taught that human was the alpha.

For those who think wolf/dog hybrids make good pets...
