    If we are talking about a trained pitbull I would pick the pitball. They're built for fighting not to mention bred for fighting. They have rock solid heads and killing on their own against an opponent around about their size and strength has become instinctual. They have been bred to be killing machines. Wolves tend to avoid confrontation. They will attack to protect their young or when hunger dictates. They also prefer to travel in packs. It is rare for a single wolf to bring down a dog or a human. If a human or dog must be taken down it will most likely be done by more than one wolf. This does not mean a wolf is not dangerous. The question of whether there should be pitbulls in our suburbs comes up time and time again. Humans are chiefly responsible for the way they are through selective breeding. They are pretty much the Frankenstein monsters of the dog world. We have wired not only their bodies but their brains and their instincts. It is a sad business.

    Not that I would ever want to see that happen, but in theory I think a wolf would win. I believe wolf has a better survival instinct, better intelligence and good "fighting tactics" as opposed to a pitbull. IMO

    The wolf would win, because I would be there as his second, and if the pitbull even looked sideways at him, or said anything nasty, I would pull out the duelling pistol I always carry, cleaned and primed, and shoot the pitbull between his nasty little eyes.

    I have seen both get into fights. I had a pit bull and regularly had to break up fights. He was wonderful with people but wouldn't take another dog growling at him. He was also in a six foot chain link fenced yard. He stayed in it even when another dog was outside growling at him. Dogs would go over the fence to get to him. He would take them but if I could get out there before he got hold of them good, I could get them apart and the other would run.
    I lived next door to a man who bred wolves to sell to zoos. He had a pure bloodline of Timber wolf. They would get into fights among themselves occasionally. They were fighting for dominance among themselves.
    I believe that they have an equal chance of winning. It would depend on which one got the throat hold first. They both go for the throat and once they get hold the fight is over. The instinct on both is to go for the throat. The killing hold. Then they just hang on until the other one bleeds out or suffocates, depending on what part they got hold of.
    Fighting dogs on purpose is a crime, both morally and legally. Don't do it.

    Hi, Syrusv37!

    Who would win in a fight between a wolf and a pit bull? It depends on the circumstances. A wolf, presumably, is wild. A pit bull, though deadly, is still a domesticated animal.

    If the fight were a ranging seek-track-hunt-kill affair in the woods or jungle, or whatever the natural habitat is for wolves -- then I'd obviously have to give the edge to the wolf.

    If the contest is a close-fighting, straight up brawl, I suppose I would have to give the advantage to the pit bull.

    You can’t tell that for sure, Pit is extremely durable; you can’t take him down in single bite. Wolf on the other is definitely stronger but 1 bite in critical area would be enough to defeat him. I’m saying it largely depends on luck...

    I think a wolf would win versus almost any dog. They have actual experience in the wild and live to defend themselves. Just my opinion anyways, good question!
