A wolf. Not some wolf-dog hybrid or anything of the sort but a legit wolf pup and raise it up. I know just wolf-dogs alone are a huge responsibility and something most people falter at, so taking in an actual wolf puts it that much further and also much more dangerous even if raised as a pup. As for the reason, wolves are one of the few species of animals I've respected my whole life as the intelligence they have in a pack or even by themselves is simply marvelous. When I was living in Russia my grandfather used to take me hunting and while we never owned any wolves, he somehow "befriended" a pack of nearby wolves who actually got about as along with his dogs as someone would be minimally comfortable with and would hunt together, but never let the dogs get near once the wolves secured their food. Anyways, whenever we brought out our dogs and they started moving the animal closer to us -- almost always the wolves would be not too far behind trailing or somewhere else to divert the chase elsewhere, which is from what I assume hearing our dogs bark. As soon as the wolves were a certain distance from our dogs, dogs were called back and placed near a set perimeter where we could move said animals away from and let the wolves go back for it if the wolves weren't able to "herd" the animals into our line of sight. Pack of wolves would usually split into 2-3 groups and that's about how many animals we were hunting in a single session, more if possible, but once the animals got closer, one poor bastard would have it's leg/back shot, let it fall and let the wolves take it, in between those shots, are the kill shots for the others that we are going to take. Wolves would always go straight for the animal still struggling and do what they do, even if they were chasing something else, the moment the one that fell still alive, immediate turn back to go for it.

I feel the wolves "befriended" my grandfather and knew to come when our dogs were making noise whilst running around is because the dogs would stand guard and watch the wolves devour their food -- not within sprinting distance but close enough that the wolves could clearly see there are animals watching them, but not challenging them and anything we weren't going to use, we would either throw to the wolves or leave it for them to take. So I feel they knew that if they just simply chase the bigger animal, it'll be put down for them to have basically an easy meal. The way they maneuvered in the hunt and just the fact that they knew how to work around with our own dogs was too intriguing to me as a kid and growing up is one of the reasons I see them as an animal that has use and I actually have respect for.

As for now, if I ever got one, would definitely be out of the country, probably back in Russia, huge plot of land and they would absolutely be hunting animals, same practice, go out and do the running/herding work, the rest is simply just eat after that.

I always loved the Toucan bird since I was a child. Fruit Loops had everything to do with it. And the platypus, that's a very strange and cuddly animal. I always wanted them both.

Ross had one in the show F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
