This is Kida. She is a Low-Content Wolf Dog Hybrid. She just turned 1 years old in February 2018.
Her first owner was an illegal Hybrid wolfdog breeder in Alaska.
Her second owner was a young man with no experience or knowledge to care for such an animal and little money.
After a few months of poor quality care, she was surrendered to the Humane Society. There, she was adopted out to three different homes. All three homes brought her back to the humane society.
She faced euthanasia, and so the humane society called her previous owner to take her back, despite his lack of resources.
With nowhere to put her but a car, her owner brought her to our Chairman's workshop and left her.
This little girl is only 1 years old and is on her 7th home. She has been underfed her whole life and is malnourished and underweight. She has many behavioral issues, because of the kind of animal she is and from being neglected.
Our organization is adamantly against the breeding and selling of Hybrid animals, whether they be Wolfdogs or Bengal cats. Most of these animals are not made to be house pets, they are destructive, highly intelligent and require a lot of space, work and environmental stimulus. Many suffer from severe and highly expensive medical issues because of the cross and inbreeding. Worse, most wild animal sanctuaries do not take in Hybrid animals, and neither do most domestic sanctuaries or humane societies, meaning majority of these animals end up euthanized once their owners can no longer handle them.
Kida is one of the lucky ones, she has found her forever home. She is now in the hands of our President Dezerae as she works to build her an large outdoor enclosure and help work with her behavioral issues. We hope in time she may become an educational animal, and help us to show the public the reality of what really happens to these animals.
