Wolf hybrids must be licensed and vaccinated for rabies.

You bet. But while a wolf hybrid is considered a dog, and therefore must be licensed and vaccinated, there is currently no USDA-approved vaccine for these animals. Many wolf hybrids are vaccinated with the dog vaccine, but because of the lack of a federal approval for this serum, a wolf hybrid may be treated differently from a dog if it bites a human.
