Horton is one of the most unique wolfdogs here at the Sanctuary given that he is mainly Irish Wolfhound. He came from the Milk River Hoarding Seizure and is very wary of humans.


Born in a private wolf facility in Saskatchewan, Kuna is a high-content wolfdog who is smart, independent and very stubborn!


Rue is a mid-content wolfdog and has been a resident at the Sanctuary since she was 4 weeks old. She can be shy with new people, but once she warms up she lets her silly and sweet personality shine.
