Lives with Apollo


Farah was born on April 17, 2010 at Seacrest Wolf Preserve in Florida to be sold to a zoo. She and her brother Zeab were not able to find a home so in May Mission: Wolf received a call to take in the two pups. When she arrived at eight weeks of age we named her Farah – the Arabic word for joy. Seacrest donated the siblings to Mission: Wolf with the hope that they could become a part of our ambassador program, and help educate people about wolves.

 

Farah and her brother Zeab were hand raised by the staff with the help of two wolf-dogs, Leo and Luna. Four weeks after Farah arrived, Mission: Wolf took in another pup named Apollo. Farah was elated to have a new pup to play with and chew on. The three pups spent the summer together and inspired many visitors with their playful puppy antics. At the end of summer, Farah and the two male pups met Magpie and Abe, who quickly adopted the pair. They had one of the largest enclosures and were able to run through the trees, hide in dens and enjoy attention from many visitors.

 

Farah was the most outgoing of the pups and seemed to love most everyone she met. She would frantically run to greet new visitors and in typical wolf style,  jump up and try to chew on guests' lips and faces. She was adapted to the wolf bus, and in the fall of 2010 she and her pack of five spent a month exploring New England while inspiring thousands of people in events with the ambassador wolf program. She loved romping in the ocean and lakes and would howl with anyone that howled near her.

Early in the summer of 2012 Farah began challening Magpie for alpha position in the pack, and Apollo began challenging Abe. Upon seeing this behaviour we immediatly removed the two youngsters and gave them their own enclosure. Since the two were raised together they are closely bonded and can regularly be seen playing together. Farah remains very outgoing and still enjoys greeting staff and guests when they visit her.
