In early summer of 2010, Shy Wolf Sanctuary was able to provide a home to four, 3 – week old pure wolf puppies who were accidentally born at another facility. We gladly welcomed Misun (the only male), Maraya (the only black one), Chatima and Namid. When the pups were about three months old they contracted an unknown condition which put their lives in jeopardy. After a lengthy stay at the animal hospital, blood transfusions, and many vet bills, they emerged as happy, friendly pups that couldn’t get enough attention from our volunteers.
In the beginning they lived in our spacious isolation enclosure but after some time had passed, and they grew bigger, we found it increasingly difficult to visit them. They literally very lovingly “attacked” anyone who entered the area . It was at that time we decided they needed adult supervision to calm them down. They were split into pairs and placed with adult wolves and wolfdogs.
