A Happy Holiday For The Brooklyn Wolf-Dog
New arrival 12/24/2011, “Rosie” made it to Howling Woods Farm just in time for the Holidays. It’s a much better place than the barn she stayed in after her owner sadly passed. Though a little overwhelmed, she is very affectionate and seeking to bond with a special someone.
When a wolf-dog hybrid was found wandering around East New York, it was uncertain what would happen, since the animal was illegal to own. Thankfully, Howling Woods Farm in Jackson Township, NJ was able to take the animal in and give it a home for the holidays! Howling Woods is a “breed-specific animal shelter that rescues and places domestic bred wolves”, and is able to provide the care that the animal will need.
Learn more about wolf-dog hybrids, and if you’d like to visit the shelter, make an RSVP and be sure not to bring any hot dogs or wear fur!
[Update] – Runnin’ Scared placed a call and got the rest of the story:
We had put in a call to Howling Woods and we just heard back from president Michael Hodanish. Hodanish explained that the video posted on Gothamist and A Great Big City is actually not of our Brooklyn canine. “Rosie” is from Ohio. The Brooklyn dog’s name was “Lady,” though the farm is changing it to “Winona.” There will be a “Winona” video shortly. Winona is “doing great,” Hodanish said. “She’s not dangerous at all. She’s very social.”
