Did You Know? Michigan Wolf-Dog Ownership Restrictions

Michigan law requires a permit to own a wolf-dog hybrid, and prohibits ownership by anyone who has been convicted of animal cruelty, or who has committed a felony within the last decade. According to a Senate Fiscal Agency analysis of the 2000 law regulating wolf-dog hybrids, opponents argued it is unfair to single out one type of dog for special regulations when other breeds including pit bulls, rottweilers, and Dobermans are known to exhibit predatory behavior.
