Hybrid Wolf

One of the animal shelters in the San Fernando Valley called us and said they had two wolf hybrids that kept escaping their owner’s yard and were killing feral cats and that they needed to be re-homed to an animal sanctuary, otherwise they would have been euthanized. We took them in June 2019. Dani was approximately 3 years old, and her daughter, Ice, approximately 1 year old. Dani is a mid-content hybrid wolf, she loves the people she knows, but is very cautious around strangers, and she is the alpha of our seven-pack, even over the males! Her and Ice live with our two male youngsters, Lupin and Rogue, over whom they definitely rule! We let them run into our big wolf yard for a few hours everyday where they love to let their "wild side" come out!


ORDER: Carnivora           
FAMILY: Canidae               
GENUS: Canis                   

The wolf is the largest species of the wild dog family. A hybrid wolf happens most of the time from human intervention. A wolf and domesticated dog are purposely bred to create a combined version of the two, mostly for the pet trade. The problem is a wolf does not “domesticate” in one breeding and this can often be very detrimental to the pups, especially once they mature. They have an acute sense of smell and hearing. They travel in packs, about 7 to 8 individuals, with one alpha male and one alpha female. They are most active at sunrise and sunset but prefer to move under the cover of darkness. They do not accept strangers into their pack easily. They are apex predators who’s job it is to keep ecosystems in order and working smoothy. If you would like further info on the wolf, you can check out, “How Wolves Change Rivers”, narrated by Dave Attenborough.
