Male High-Content Wolfdog
He is 6 years old and his birthday is April 21st, 2018.

He is NOT on the Tour Path.

Gambit joined the Wild Spirit “pack” in December of 2022, after his owner realized he had started to outgrow his environment physically, mentally, and emotionally, and felt the best thing he could do for his animal was find him a more suitable home – one where he would have the space and resources needed to thrive.

In addition, Gambit is the younger brother of Sox, a female wolfdog that came to Wild Spirit in October of 2020 as a result of extreme stress and anxiety that failed to resolve despite her owner’s efforts.

Knowing this, Gambit’s owner wondered whether Sox might do better with one of her family members, especially considering she and Gambit are only a year apart in age and spent a great deal of time together during their youth.

After discussing our thoughts at length, we agreed to take a chance on Sox and Gambit as a possible pair, crossing our fingers and toes that it would work out for everyone in the end! In order to help assess their initial introductions, Gambit’s owner drove him from Ohio to New Mexico, where he spent the next three days coming out to visit, getting updates, and providing his own feedback on how things seemed to be going. By the end of the third day, we all felt comfortable with the new pair, and they have thrived together ever since.

Once Gambit settled into his new home, he became a fairly confident boy. He still prefers not to be touched, but makes an acception for his favorite humans. Above all else, he enjoys his large enclosure and his neighbors, who he plays with at length through their shared fence line.
