Denali Denali Gender: Female
Age: adult
Loc: Virginia
Status: Available
Denali (her real name) was in a separate enclosure. This pretty girl is very curious about visitors, and dances all around you, but won't come close enough to touch. (Pretty sure that in a small pen with daily treats and leash walks, she will come around in no time. Unlike the others, she is social with some people besides the owner.) She is younger than those in the other pack, at about 5-6 years old.
After 20 years of raising them, these animals' owner developed an aggressive cancer and passed away suddenly--leaving the last of his seniors without a safe place to call home. They are a lovely bunch, quiet and gentle, and the whole pack seems to get along peacefully. I'm sure they would like to go in pairs or small groups, as opposed to by themselves, since all they've ever had is *each other* and the large wooded enclosure that they are about to lose--although all offers would be considered.
They're not escape artists, so the standard (sturdy) 6' enclosure with some dig guard would be sufficient. (A high security lockdown is best for the first few days, with more freedom after they've acclimated to their new surroundings.) Once they've all been relocated, the owner's family is also willing to send along their heavy-gauge fencing to help build them nice, new yards to play in.
All of the animals have clearly been much loved and handled, but ONLY by their owner, so they are shy of new people and will take some time to warm up.
Assistance is available to catch them up and get them moved, within a reasonable distance of their location (central Virginia). Offers from further away would also be considered, if transport is available, although a home visit is still required to ensure their safety.
All of them are aged approximately 7 to 10 years. They have been outside companions and don't know anything about leashes, cars, or housebreaking; that doesn't mean they can't learn, over time, but they are definitely not "instant pets". (Small children and smaller pets are NOT things they could adapt to. They really need their own space.)
Ideally, they would like a quiet environment with a secure enclosure, and someone to come sit with them each day and build their trust. *I would also be willing to mentor a conscientious first-time owner who wanted to learn what living with wolfdogs is like, by giving a pair of these kids a place to live out the remainder of their lives.
If you can offer an appropriate adoptive home to any of these sweet furkids, please contact Sue Bowers at solowolf_93@yahoo.com. Thanks for caring.

Cinnamon Cinnamon Gender: Female
Age: adult
Loc: Virginia
Status: Available
Cinnamon, and her almost-identical sister, are more timid. They are also very hard to tell apart! Both paced more nervously than the others, and really did not want to be touched--although once I had them, they weren't overly tense or panicked. I stroked their wonderfully soft and fluffy coats, and they lay there and watched me uncertainly with wide golden eyes, hoping I wouldn't hurt them. They may take longer to come around, but would be good project dogs for a gentle person with some canine experience.

King King Gender: Male
Age: adult
Loc: Virginia
Status: Available
King (his real name), the only boy. He is the biggest one, has a very classic and handsome wolfdog appearance, and a soulful air about him. He spent most of my visits hiding in his doghouse. When I sat beside him and stroked him, he watched me with a worried look but otherwise did not react. He appears to have arthritis pretty badly, as he has a definite stiffness in his hindquarters when he trots or runs.
