Safe Haven Sanctuary, Yerrington, NV
- two beautiful
Malamute/wolfdogs, male -Denali
female Gypsy -
were rescued from the Olympic Animal
Sanctuary in Washingon a couple of years ago. The unkempt and
irresponsible refuge could no longer care for their 160 dogs so they were
dispersed to various Rescues. Some died. All the dogs had all been kept in
poor conditions and in tiny pens or crates and not socialized. These two
are extremely shy. They had lived in a tiny kennel together for 3 years,
with no access to walks, socialization or the outside in any manner (not
even windows). We think they may be siblings as they look very much alike.
The male is the larger of the two. Even though they were extremely shy
arrived they are venturing out into their yard and playing
now. Both Denali and Gypsy are still extremely "wolfy" and will not come
to be petted or leashed and it's been a year. These two beauties are very
bonded and stick together like glue. They have been allowed into the
larger yard with a few other dogs and have shown no aggression - just
curiosity. They have dug a den and like to hide in there.
These dogs are not available
to the general public. They are available for adoption ONLY to
a wolf sanctuary or someone with a "sanctuary setting" [i.e.
large, wolf escape-proof enclosure with enrichment] that can give them a
forever and happy home. Keep watching our site for new photos and updates.
