U.S. Wolf Refuge pack member "Nahini" joined our pack a little over a year ago as a mature seven year old from Minden NV. Her name was derived from a native American name meaning Silver Lake. The former owner of this beautiful female Arctic Wolf purchased her from a breeder as a pup to become the companion of "Lobo", our older Gray Wolf.
For whatever reason, she was no longer able to keep Nahini so the U.S. Wolf Refuge will be her home for the rest of her life. She is a permanent resident and not available for adoption. After her surrender, her long time pen mate Lobo (an older male) began to grieve her absence so he was also given up for his own well being. They happily share a very large mountain enclosure where they roam at their leisure and rest in the shade of the many juniper trees.
Although we don't always know the full circumstances that result in reasons why some of our pack members become homeless, this serves as an example of why we work diligently to educate people about keeping wolves and wolf-dogs as pets and for the sake of the animal, ask that they educate themselves fully about these animals before bringing one into their home. We discourage buying from a breeder (which of course encourages more breeding).
Nahini is a magnificent wolf that exhibits strong wolf behaviors. She accepts attention from some of our more experienced volunteers strictly on her own terms. You've gotta love her for that!
To help us celebrate NAHINI and help her care for her pack, Nahini's Adopt-a-Wolf packet will be on special the entire month of November for a reduced purchase price... quite a nice gift for that special person this coming holiday season.
