DISLIKES ~ Understandably, Draco isn’t the biggest fan of tours. We can’t blame him – not everyone wants to be the center of attention in a crowd of people!
Soon Draco’s story had made it’s way through the wolf-dog rescue network, and the rescue team at W.O.L.F. Sanctuary thought of us. Their sanctuary was at capacity, but the rescue coordinator had been touched by Draco’s story and the unfairness of his situation, and she was determined to find him rescue. When W.O.L.F. reached out to the Wild Spirit team, we had 3 single female wolf-dogs who needed companions. Maybe Draco could be the perfect match for one of our lonely girls and have his life saved at the same time. Hoping for the best, Crystal and Ramon set out for Colorado to bring our newest rescue home to our sanctuary.
Once in Colorado, Crystal and Ramon instantly saw how much Draco’s owners cared for him and wanted the best for their wolf-dog. Like any animal of his kind, caring for him was more challenging than caring for a dog. But he wasn’t aggressive, or painfully shy, or prone to escape like other wolf-dogs we’ve met. After a meet-and-greet, he loaded up in the van without issue and our team prepared to make the trip home.
Draco left Colorado and his old life behind, and he also left his name there, too. Draco was previously known as “Koda”, but we already had animals named Kota, Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota. Too much “kota”! Not only was Draco young enough to learn a new name, we felt that changing his moniker could give him an entirely fresh start for his new life! After much brainstorming, we settled on Draco, and he seems to think it suits him just fine. We’re still working at getting to know this handsome boy, but so far so good! He’s settled into our routine easily, he enjoys his meals and treats, and he’s joining in with the pack howl with enthusiasm! Finally, Draco has a pack to sing with, and there’s no one to scold him for doing so.
