Arrived at Mission: Wolf on April 27, 2009
Lives with Talon, Asia
Valley Spirit (known as Mama) as well as another wolf hybrid named Talon were confiscated from their owner by animal control, and taken to a local shelter. Since they were both thought to be part wild animal the shelter could not adopt out either Talon or Mama. Mission: Wolf was contacted and we agreed to take the two animals. With the help of the Dog Whisperer television show we were able to gain the funds and means to transport the animals to the refuge. Two days before she was to arrive Mama gave birth to four, Buku, Batman, Oreo, Asia, pups while still in the shelter. The six arrived at the refuge in the spring of 2009.
Staff carried the crate containing Mama and the pups down to a wooded enclosure. When we opened the crates door Mama immediatly began investigating her new home. Upon finding an old den she cleaned it out and one by one carried her pups down to it. Mama, Talon and the pups all lived together until the pups were mature and were seperated into their own packs.
Today Mama, Talon and Asia live to together in the 20 acres play pen. They are a very happy and exciteable trio and eagerly greet all guests to their home.
