Puma: Whats the fear of wolf-Dogs all about?
I own 3 of them! They are very loyal and have never caused me any trouble whatsoever. There was one incident where one of our wolf hybrids nearly killed the neighbor's Pit Bull. But the dog came onto our property so, It greatly changes the scenario. I will admit that these dogs are extremely powerful! But at the same time, I find them to be no different than any other dog. They have a true fear and respect of humans (At least the ones I have do). The person we bought the hybrids from called them "Tundra Shepherds". They are German Shepherd/Wolf mix.

I agree that wolves are misunderstood! Lets just hope that they can make a comeback and help to balance nature. Everything exists for a reason! Without predators to take care of all the varmits, vegetation and crops can be literally destroyed by deer and other animals. Wolves fear people!!!! Even a pack of them will run from a human! And there is no record in North America of a wolf attacking a human.
People have taken the "wolves in sheeps clothing" in the Bible out of context. Christians where never told to go out and slaughter all the wolves! But during the dark ages radical ideas like that where believed!
There is no record of wolves attacking humans! no as in: "0"!

Read "Of Wolves and Men" by Barry Lopez.
We have several wolf / wolfdog rescues in Colorado. One rescue's animals got out and killed or maimed several dogs and livestock.
I've witnessed "well socialized" (the owner's words, not mine) hybrids attack and kill their own hybrid kin.
One of YOUR hybrids attacked another dog, doesn't matter if it was defending its territory, your animal is now considered "vicious" in the eyes of the law and your neighborhood.
How you can logically assert they are "no different than any other dog." I find that very curious, unsettling, and plain uninformed on your part. Your hybrids are not "dogs" and never will be.
If you have kids I strongly advise you NEVER leave them alone with any of the hybrids (or any domestic dog, either). Considering you have three hybrids — one with a proven record of attack behavior, I strongly advise NO ADULT be alone with them. Not unless you keep a .45 in your belt.
