Amulet and her brother Fenris came to us in the summer of 2007. Their mother was found to be pregnant after she and seventeen other wolves were confiscated from a private compound in Michigan during a gun and a drug raid that resulted in a policeman and the owner being shot. The pregnant wolf was taken to a shelter, where she gave birth to four black pups. Mother and puppies, two of which were Amulet and Fenris, lived together for four months in a 10x10 enclosure with little human interaction. In addition, the trauma their mother had encountered from watching the death of her owner and being moved into an unfamiliar environment was transferred to the puppies through high levels of adrenaline in-utero.
