Argo joined the Big Pack in the Sky in November of 2020.
He passed at 14 years old due to lung cancer.
Argo was born in 2006, and arrived at Wild Spirit in October of 2010. He originally lived in Minnesota with his owner and four other canines. His owner wanted to downsize her “wolf” population, and since he was the least social of the group and had nipping tendencies, she asked if we could take him.
We were looking for a male companion for one of our lone females, Cheyenne. We worried about his future as a high-maintenance wolf-dog that sounded like too much for anyone to take care of. After we agreed to accept Argo, we hit the road to Minnesota to pick him up. We were lucky enough to be able to contain him in the owner’s barn and anesthetize him easily without too much stress for poor Argo.
He adjusted well to his life at Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, but never lost his nipping tendencies. Needless to say, we kept alert in his presence to avoid any playful nibbles. He enjoyed every moment of his life at Wild Spirit, enjoying his time with his companion Cheyenne to the very end.
Our handsome Argo was a very vibrant boy with quite the naughty streak. He often made a game out of following his caretakers around the enclosure, looking for that perfect moment to nibble on their behind! His caretakers usually found this much less fun than he did!
Argo spent his entire life here at Wild Spirit with high-content wolfdog, Cheyenne. They often had a playful relationship that had them constantly testing one another’s boundaries. More often then not, Cheyenne would reign supreme.
Likes & Dislikes
Argo hated supplements and medications of any kind. He had a real knack for knowing when something was hidden inside any food and would eat everything except the part he needed.
