A resident of a local development called Susan and Jean to report a feral wolf dog trying to make friends with her dogs. Her neighbors were frightened and had called the sheriff to remove him. After several attempts to capture him, they were planning to shoot him. Jean immediately rushed to the rescue. With his knowledge of animals, he had him trapped and in his truck within half an hour and we took him home to Earthfire. It took some time, but Hope has integrated into Earthfire, playing well with our dog Shota. Not quite a dog and not quite a wolf, he’s loving but shy and selective about who may have the privilege to pet, groom, and walk him. Interestingly, Kenai, a gorgeous and aloof wolf, has fallen in love with him—and Hope seems to be gradually warming to that fact.
