Fenris, and his sister Amulet, 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. She gave birth to four puppies while she was being held at an animal shelter.
We agreed to take in two of the puppies in the hopes that their young age would allow us to socialize them. Upon their arrival, we decided to separate the pups, and each one went to live with a socialized adult wolf.
In the years that Fenris has been at the refuge, he has grown into a strikingly handsome wolf with a stark black coat and white chest. Since he has become more outgoing, we have now paired him with a wolf-dog named Daisy. The two of them hit it off and he quickly earned Daisy’s respect as he stood up to her challenges over food. The two are often found lying close to each other on their hillside.
