DISLIKES ~ Forest does not like to ride in the van. He enjoys helping with our educational events, but he does not travel with us because of his dislike of the van. We never ask him to do things he doesn’t want to do.
As the Arctic-Timber puppies grew up, it became clear from their behavior and appearance that they were not pure wolves, but rather high-content wolf-dogs, meaning they are mostly wolf but do have a bit of dog in their genetic history. Despite this difference, they lived happily with the Arctic wolves, and eventually all divided into independent packs, each made of a combination of the two litters. Although our Arctic-Timber wolf-dogs tend to be a bit more outgoing than our Arctic wolves, they are still just as innately wild and prefer to live in a pack with their own kind than in a home as someone’s pet.
Forest became very close with Alice and Thunder and these three have become known as our Forest Pack. Alice and Forest are very close, but Thunder and Forest occasionally have disagreements over food and enrichment treats. Fortunately, there haven’t been any serious conflicts, but like with all of our groups, we keep close watch for any sign of a problem. In general, Forest and his pack-mates are very happy with their life together.
