MEAN DOG ! IN DOG PARK
I went to the park one day with my wolf just like I always do, I let him off the lead like normal. He loves to play and run with the other dogs. I was standing there talking to a friend when out of no where a rottweiler came running straight towards me starling and showing his teeth. OH NO! Before my friend and I could run away my wolf came out from no where and grabbed that dog by the collar. He didn't bite him, just grabbed his collar and started banging his head on the ground until he gave up, much like a person would do. My friend looked at me and said "how'd you teach him that?" I didn't he did that all on his own.
I love my wolf ! He's my friend!
I BROKE DOWN
I have a wolf, he is my best friend. He loves everyone and just wants to play with me and any one . never showed any aggression to any one, he loves everyone.
One night it was late and I was going to bed I heard a knock at the door. I said yes with the door chained. A man said I broke down and can I please use your phone. She started to take the chain of the door, then her wolf came from behind her and showed his teeth. She looked at the wolf and thought he never dose that. Then she stopped taking the chain off the door and said to the man you have to go to some one else's door .
You have to ponder about what this means to you. Was he going to hurt her? What did her wolf smell about that man?
I DON'T CRY ALONE!
A lady told me one day when see gets upset or cries over things her wolf will come up to her and sit down next to her. Then he just starts crying too with her. He will nuzzle her and lick her. She says it really helps her feel better. It's the comfort and having some one there that really cares for her.
I don't cry alone anymore she said.
HELP ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD
There is a lady that has a wolf and one day she was going to town. The wolf was asleep in the back seat and her car broke down on the side of the road. She got out and lifted the hood up. Just as she was going to call someone a man stopped. She thought OH good "HELP". But when the cops showed up they had to pry the wolves mouth off his butt HA!
HA! yes funny but now without this friend of hers, the wolf, she would of been one of those women you find in a field or on the side of the road dead. She said 2 months later that same wolf kept a man from breaking in to her house. Maybe some day with wolves in peoples home it will make people think twice about doing something wrong. "There maybe a wolf in that home". You wont see them, may not hear them, but they are out there .
Little Red Riding Hood? Nope, Just the Opposite:
Here is a true story, a man has a wolf and a 5 year old girl, his neighbor has a pit bull and the wolf and the dog played all the time. One day the dog got out and went after the little girl, the wolf went over and killed the dog before it got the girl. Even though they were friends, when it was necessary he protected the girl.
Help From A Distance:
A woman that has a wolf was out walking in the neighborhood she was 5 blocks away and her wolf was at home in the back yard inside a 6 foot fenced area. Two dogs came out of their backyard and were going to attack her, she screamed and got down and covered her head. She thought they where going to get her, she heard a mauling noise but nothing was touching her so she looked up. Her wolf had jumped a 6 foot fence, ran 5 blocks and got on those dog before she got hurt. It took 3 adult men to get him off those dogs, he did not kill the dogs he just kept them off of her.
World Rescue Team:
We also have a wolf on a world wide rescue team. The last we heard she had 42 rescues under her belt.
Hello, Pack! It's been only a few days since I met my new Alpha Female, but it's been quite a ride, and I thought I'd share a little of it with you every now and again.
Wow. Changes. Who knew so many could come so quickly, especially in my laid-back life? Within just a few hours, I went from a really large of wolfpeople and humans to a pack of two: me and my new alpha. I think she liked me but had some learning to do. (If the truth be told, we both had and still have some to do, but don't tell her I said that, okay?)
The first afternoon was a little rough on us both. She was preoccupied, and I had a little trouble getting her to understand a few basics, but she adapted fairly well and gave me easy access to the chair floor with the window AND the other area with more paw room and even a bed for me. It was a little high for me at first, but I finally got her to help me up onto that long, comfy pad thing eventually. Boy, is that so much better than the floor, though I do occasionally curl up down there again to keep her company up front a little.
Alpha Human Female tells me that I was born in Texas, and since I picked her, we've been to other parts of Texas (through someplaced called Dallas) and through Arkansas, Tennessee, and are now sitting around this day she calls Sunday in the place called Virginia. We've not done a lot today except lie around mostly. She wanted to play earlier, so we wrestled a bit, though I'm not quite sure what's she telling me yet, but I've discovered I really, really, REALLY like those toy thingies that try to baby-howl when I nip them. I think AHF calls them something like "squeaky toys" or something. They remind me of the new baby cubs when they're really, really young or something. I especially like the little yellow one called a ball. I can chomp on them, have them squeak back at me, and I toss my head back and forth then throw them. What's really cool is that I seem to be training my AHF to fetch when I do that! She doesn't always understand, though, and I have to go get it myself. Don't worry! I'll teach her soon enough! She's wanted to go for walks several times today already, and that's fine with me. I, of course, take full advantage of it most of the time. (Never said I was stupid!) She wanted a little more range than the short leash I provided her at first, and when she went to the pet store the other day, she picked up a 50-foot lead for herself. I was able to let her use that once so far, and boy, did she like the mobility! Oh, yeah, that was a good idea!
I've had to be really blatant about telling her I want back in the moving house. I've jumped up on her and practically pulled her by her leash to get back there. I jumped out of it the first time the door open, and thank goodness my alfa human female was able to grab onto my collar and followed me to the ground. I have no idea where she would have wandered by herself, because I'd not been able to get the leash around her wrist, and she could well have run off, darn it! Doesn't she know it's not safe without me around? At least she's learning that, too. She positions herself differently when that door thingy opens, and I've learned she has time to prepare herself if I stand there and dance around. I know she was startled the first time, so now I wait to give her assurance and let her lift me down after attaching herself to my collar. (I make her think I'm afraid of the height, but hey, if it makes her feel better, I'll act the part. I'm a wolf, after all.)
I think she likes it when I listen to her read aloud. At first, I think she felt a little awkward about it. I can see that, I think. I'm lying on my side, trying like heck to either amuse myself with a toy, a stick I wanted to chew on and convinced her to bring along one day, or just take a nap; no one can see that I'm going along with this, and humans might think she's flipped her lid or something...whatever that is.
Well, Pack, I'm getting tired of tapping all this out, one key at a time. Typing is hard when you don't have opposing thumbs.
I'm doing pretty well overall, but I just scratch my ears wondering what the heck "Texas," "Arkansas," "Tennessee," and "Virginia" are.
Fourteen weeks old tomorrow! I wonder if I can get AHF to give me another rawhide chew. Those are pretty darned good.
Waggin' my tail,
P.S. Alpha Human Female says it's okay if you want to share my tale (I snicker, 'cause I want to type 'tail') as it progresses. When she set up this address for me, she says it's allllllllll mine! She also says when she remembers where the heck she put her camera, she'll send pictures, too. But I don't know what those are yet either.
Story of the month: The Amazing Tara
A Howling great day to you all!
After reading your website 7942 times (ok maybe 3 or 4) LOL and several others, I have figured out why I lost my wolfdog so young, of course that was 35 years ago. ....
I had a gray/shepherd and every day without fail that crazy animal would go to the drive way (dirt) and roll all over, then would go into the chicken cage, lay down, and let the hens get on him and scratch and peck around. Funniest thing I have ever seen, but he loved it! A Beautiful Soul!
A tid-bit...... The lady that owns the wolf two socks, from the movie "Dances With Wolves" just bought a wolf from us, a Tundra male. She said that while they made the movie Kevin Costner and her slept outside with the wolves. Still to this date Kevin Costner visits her every now and then.
Story about a Cancer Patient: There is a family in El Paso who's father was here from Florida to visit. He is a cancer patient here having treatments. He was talking to a nurse at the hospital, she told him about the wolves at Wolfhaven. They called to see if their father could come see the wolves, of course we said yes! All are welcome! We have people come from all over to see our wolves, to be with them, play with them, and even love on them.
That Saturday they came out to see the wolves. They played with them, loved on them, play with the cubs, even got to hold a new born. We live with our wolves, they're not in cages, we love them, and have taught them to behave and to be gentile. The man sat around all the wolves and they where very gentile with him and loving too. If raised correctly they are very loving and caring animals. Show love and understanding from a young age, and that is what you get back. Cage an animal up, and let it make its own rules and you have a wild animal.
They also asked questions and learned a lot about the real wolf. We want people to know the real wolf, and know that we can make some one out there happy. When they left they gave use a $125 donation for the wolves, even though they did not have to give anything, it was our pleasure having them visit. It was extremely nice, but what matters is that we made that man and his family happy for a while.
Thanks from Wolfhaven and us.
Hello this is Huda,
Ricu has been the most amazing pet in out lives. He's very very lovable. He's also very friendly with kids, and is quiet when he's supposed to be. He understands everything we say and he's well behaved. He's so much smarter then a dog by a lot. He's a quick learner, and listens to whatever you have to say. He gets along with everyone he meets, and doesn't bark at other dogs.
He's also friends with my kitten, and he plays with her, by chasing each other around. They also sometimes sleep next to each other. They're both getting along great. Although Luna (My kittens name) was very mean to him first, he never hurt her. Not one bit.
He's never hurt anyone, and we also have a baby who's a year and a half, and he's so nice to her.
And every time we take Ricu out, people go up to us just to pet him and complement us about what a gorgeous wolf he is. Even though we say he's a wolf dog.
He's the best thing that's happen to us for the family.
Thank you to T.T. Campbell, a 10 year old from Portland OR. He sent a wonderful letter about our wolves, again a big Thank You!
We have a featured cub of the month:
Beccalyn "The Comforter"
Hello Wolf Haven!!
I can't believe our little BeccaLyn is over 3 months old already! She is getting so big and is so beautiful it makes you want to cry. She is a very happy little girl and quite spoiled at times. She is quickly learning commands such as "sit" and "stay" and loves to go for walks. Lately with the snow on the ground she goes out and "snowplows" in the back yard by shoving her muzzle in the show and running around with her head down in the snow. Most of all though she seems to love just curling up on the couch between her father and I. BeccaLyn is also quite the talker too. Some of the sounds she makes almost sound like she is trying to say actual words!
Here is a cute story I want to share with you. As you know we not only are BeccaLyn's parents, but the parents of a special needs cat named Maddy. Maddy is visually impaired and much much smaller than a normal cat. She is actually about the size of a 7 month old kitten. Sometimes when she gets to chasing a toy or playing too much she will lose her perspective of where she is in the house. . . . . READ THE REST OF THIS STORY UNDER "ROARS FROM THE PACK"
We somehow have let Spirit's testimony slip under our noses. Well not any more, thanks to Shirley for reminding us what an important part of our lives wolves can be. Here is a bit of her testimony. . . .
Just wanted to drop a line about Spirit. She is becoming very possessive of her yard. Our neighbors have about 40 dogs and half of them are outside dogs, they wander up and down the road when the neighbors leave. Well when they walk on the street in front of our yard Spirit walks along the fence with her hackles up and growling at them. She is also very possessive of Cane and he of her. They adore each other.
