Wolves simply are not designed to live in houses with people. They do not, and will never, look to their human for guidance, or boundaries, or anything but to live together as equals. If you need more evidence, read the beautifully written and heartbreaking book, I started our rescue in 1999 by default.It was never my intent to have a Wolfdog in my life, let alone open a sanctuary and rescue.Maybe not, but I hereby admit to being thrilled to be in the same room with him, and was absolutely overwhelmed by his beauty.And heartbroken, because wolfdogs should break everyone’s heart.I got to meet Bits only because it was the day of the annual veterinary visit at Grey Wolf Rescue.Jayne and Mike figured the wolfdogs would be stressed already by the veterinary work, and that one more person wouldn’t make a difference.The wolfdog, 75% wolf reportedly, was gorgeous and brilliant and virtually unstoppable.While we talked, she climbed on the table, then the top of the couch, chewed on my hair, began eating my notebook, then played with the coffee cups, then squatted to pee, then lept at the blinds and pulled them down. Of course we intervened whenever possible, but it was like trying to stop water coursing over a water fall.
I remember the other wolfdog especially well because while he was sinking his teeth into my hand he looked me dead in the eye and clearly, oh oh ever-so-clearly, communicated “Don’t you EVER do that again.” I believe there was a curse word in there too, but I don’t know canine curses very well.She had energy radiating out of her like mist rising from a lake, a jewel of a sparkle in her eyes and an overwhelming need to DO SOMETHING every single second. The couple eventually realized that there was no way they could manage a wolfdog and tried to find her a place to go. (I will refrain from expressing my reaction to that here.I’ll just mention that it is unprintable, and leave it at that.) I couldn’t find a rescue organization that had room, they were all bursting at the seams and exhausted from trying to take care of the misfits they already had.Yes, I know that some wolfdogs do well with their human family, and even get along with other dogs. I will no doubt get comments from wolfdog supporters and breeders who defend the practice of breeding wolves to dogs.When I testified as an expert witness in support of a woman who went to court to force her ex-husband to keep her young children away from the wolfdogs that her husband had purchased, I was put on the official Wolfdog Blacklist, and heard about it for years afterward.
