The newest resident at the Wolf Haven International sanctuary in Tenino used to only roam as far as the backyard cable connected to her collar would let her go. Layla, a first-generation wolfdog — her mother was a wolf and her father a Malamute — recently arrived at Wolf Haven by way of an animal shelter in Thurston County.
A new voice can be heard at Wolf Haven. Layla, a three-year old female, is an F1 wolfdog, or first generation, meaning that 50% of her DNA comes from a pure wolf (in this case her mother) and 50% from a domestic dog (her dad, a Malamute).
With the addition of pups, rescues, and Species Survival Plan wolves, we provided care for a howling chorus of 62 wolves and wolfdogs plus two lively coyotes. A record number of animals – 64 – reside at Wolf Haven.
Wolf Haven International is now home to a record 65 wolves, wolf dogs and coyotes thanks to the addition of two new wolves, Mariah and Hodari.
Part Wild is the real life story of Ceiridwen Terrill and her part wild wolf dog named Inyo. Terrill tells a deeply honest truth about living with an animal that is neither wild nor tame. Her need for safety and protection drove her to seek out a wolf dog but the result was that she spent her time saving and protecting Inyo. Terrill shares their, all too common, story with amazing detail that honors the life of this extraordinary wolfdog.
