In recent years, wolf-hybrids have gained popularity as a trend pet. While these hybrid animals are beautiful, they often require much more responsibility than a typical dog.

Wolfdog parents end up overwhelmed and underprepared for the challenges that come along with caring for such active and cunning animals, which leads wolf-hybrids to be surrendered to sanctuaries, or worse … abandoned in the streets. The latter was the case when Hope For Paws received a call about an usual rescue.

Rescuers were told that a wolf-hybrid had been spotted walking down the streets of South Central, Los Angeles, looking very sick and disoriented.

Upon hearing the desperate situation, the team raced into action. These amazing volunteers were not only able to rescue this abandoned pup, but also nurse her back to health. Now named Julia, she is well on her way to making an incredible transformation.

Julia is still in recovery, and it will likely be a while until she is able to be adopted into a loving home. The good news is that Julia is in the experienced hands of the Hope for Paws team and we are sure she will get the special home she needs.

    Hope she recovers soon. Wolf hybrids take a lot of attention, but the loyalty and love they give are well worth it.. I miss my baby, he has been gone for 16 yrs and took my heart with him. A great 11 years.

    I may be interested although an older male hybrid or wolf might be better for my situation, I have a twelve year old female Arctic wolf/hybrid, whose mate passed away and she is very lonely. She would probably accept a male but not a female into her territory. I've had over thirty years experience raising wolves. And I own 8 acres in the woods of Washington

  16. Gente boa ...

    That happened a while ago and after DNA testing, it was discovered that Julia is not a hybrid nor a wolf. She's actually a mix of husky and shepherd.
