We got a call in 2008 from a man who needed to place a wolfdog. The story was that the animal was 8 months old, had been purchased by a friend of his in North Carolina after graduating boot camp. The man stated he had been diagnosed with brain tumors, the dog was much larger than he had anticipated it growing, and that he couldn’t handle the dog. The next day we were contacted by Broward County regarding what they believed was a wolfdog that had been brought in as a stray. They sent photos and there was no doubt that the dog had been dumped at the shelter when we were not immediately able to solve this man’s “problem”.
