Sightings Of This Stray Dog

At the advent of July in 2016, animal control answered to sightings of a stray dog in a South Central L.A. suburb. The team managed to trace the animal down in a park. Upon approaching him at the park, it was determined that this pooch was clearly not in a good state. While everyone was confused about the origins of this dog, his nervousness around humans hinted that he didn’t have good time around humans. From what the rescuers could gather, this animal was wearing a crude collar around his neck. Which indicated that he could have been someone’s pet previously.

A Newfound Wild-Dog Hybrid In The Shelter

In fact, this new stray was dubbed as “New Boy”  and he was a Wolf-dog hybrid. This mixed ancestry could have been the reason this pooch’s condition. Keeping that in mind the shelter decided to call W.O.L.F. sanctuary. This organization has been working towards the conservation and protection of captive-born wolf and hybrid. “W.O.L.F. received an urgent request for help [from] Apex Protection Project, one of our wolf rescue partners in California,” the group mentioned on its website. “There was a young wolf dog in a shelter in Los Angeles County, Calif., who needed immediate help.”

“Not eligible to be in a shelter due to his origin”

“He was not eligible to be kept in the shelter since wolf-dogs cannot be adopted out to the general public,” the group said. After all, wolf-dogs hybrids are less likely to be domesticated than their dog cousins and requires special training and living condition that most people can’t fulfill. It didn’t even take the W.O.L.F rescue team 24 hours to reach the spot. They had all boarded a plane and landed in Willington to take New Boy. The main aim they had was to get the groups vet to take a look at the hybrid dog so that they could save his life. But, this dogs condition forced the vets to take him to W.O.L.F. infirmary for recovery.
