It is possible to raise a wolf like a dog in some cases as some wolves who are raised from babies can become just as loyal and sometimes even more loyal to humans than dogs are.

While dogs are really loyal to humans the wolves have been found to be much more loyal to humans than dogs are.

Wolves are inherently more tolerant than dogs are, according to new research that helps explain why wolves are so good at cooperating with each other.

The findings, published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, runs counter to the idea that domestication has made dogs more social and tolerant.

Wolves are more intelligent and smarter than dogs.

Wolves are complex, highly intelligent animals who are caring, playful, and above all devoted to family.

Only a select few other species exhibit these traits so clearly.

Just like elephants, gorillas and dolphins, wolves educate their young, take care of their injured and live in family groups.

A wolf bite is as strong as 400 to as much as 1,500 psi which is much more powerful than that of a human bite force which is only around 120 PSI.

The biting capacity of a wolf is 1,500 pounds of pressure per square inch.

The strength of a wolf's jaws makes it possible to bite through a moose femur in six to eight bites.

In comparison, a German shepherd has a biting pressure of 750 pounds per square inch.

A wolf bite is stronger than a pitbull although the pitbull has a very strong bite force but a wolf is much stronger than a pitbull and the wolf could more easily kill the pitbull if they were to come up against each other.

The dog that bites harder than a wolf is the Kangal dog breed which has a bite force of 743 PSI.

The dog that is closest to a wolf is the Siberian Husky.

Husky Dogs and Siberian Huskies are similar and very close to dogs although they are not the same thing.

Other dogs that are closest to wolves include.

Alaskan Malamute.
Chow Chow.
Shiba Inu.
Shih Tzu.

The Siberian Husky is similar to a wolf but the Siberian Husky is not a wolf as they are entirely different species although they are genetically close.

Huskies although similar in appearance to wolves are not part wolf as the Husky is a very different species of animal than the Wolf.

However research as shown that the wolf and Husky are genetically close to each other.

A wolf can get attached to a human if they've been around the human long enough and has learned to trust the human.

There have been some wolves that have become very attached to humans.

A human can befriend a wolf especially if you've been around the wolf at a young age.

However you can also befriend some wolves even when they are older.

Wolves while they are wild animals and can be dangerous the wolf can also be a friendly animal towards humans and some humans have bonded with wolves.

How did humans befriend wolves?

Some people think early human hunter-gatherers actively tamed and bred wolves.

Other people say wolves domesticated themselves, by scavenging the carcasses left by human hunters, or loitering around campfires, growing tamer with each generation until they became permanent companions.

Just be aware that 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.

Wolves are fiercely loyal to their pack, they are the ultimate team players.

Many sports teams, families and businesses could learn a thing or two from the teamwork that wolves demonstrate.

The wolf, also known as the gray wolf or grey wolf, is a large canine native to Eurasia and North America.

More than thirty subspecies of Canis lupus have been recognized, and gray wolves, as popularly understood, comprise wild subspecies.

The wolf is the largest extant member of the family Canidae.
