Can a wolf be a pet?

As mentioned, it’s illegal to keep true wolves as pets in America. However, a wolf must be more than 98% pure to count as a wolf, which leaves a lot of room for hybrid animals under federal law. That doesn’t mean you can go out and get a wolf-dog today as a pet.

Can a fox breed with dog?

Short answer: no, they can’t. They simply don’t have compatible parts. (Of course, that doesn’t mean they can’t be friends: witness Juniper the Fox and Moose the Dog, above). The longer answer to why dog-fox hybrids can’t exist has to do with the two species having vastly different numbers of chromosomes.

Why do dogs exist?

Dogs may have become domesticated because our ancestors had more meat than they could eat. During the ice age, hunter-gatherers may have shared any surplus with wolves, which became their pets. The timing and causes of the domestication of dogs are both uncertain.
