A Miracle for Nicholas

I wrote about Nicholas before. His family surrendered him to Howling Woods Farm, a domestic-bred wolf and wolfdog rescue about two years ago. They claimed he was a wolfdog.

It turned out Nick was not a wolfdog, but he was afraid and poorly socialized. The combination of fear and uncertainty made him aggressive.

Since “true” wolfdogs are never aggressive, we had little experience with such behavior. So, we pretty much winged it, doing what we do with other undesirable behaviors… ignore the bad, praise the good.

I’m happy to say he did remarkably well, and has been adopted by a wonderful and experienced couple who understands his needs.

Many happy years to you, Nick. We are all cheering for you.
