She is NOT on the Tour Path.
We heard about Honey through a friend of the sanctuary. Our friend, part of the wolfdog rescue network, desperately wanted to save Honey but she wasn’t sure yet where she could find permanent sanctuary. Wild Spirit agreed to help by going to pull Honey from the shelter and bringing her here until a permanent home became available. Staff drove to Las Vegas, New Mexico and met the shelter staff who had been caring for Honey. Countless dogs filled the kennels and cages at the shelter, barking and begging for homes. In the midst of it all, poor Honey was terrified. Although she was not social, a few staff members could handle Honey when necessary and with their help, she was loaded into the van and brought to Wild Spirit.
Upon arriving, Honey was placed in a temporary habitat complete with a roof. Good thing that roof was there! Within minutes she was looking for an escape route, even hanging from the ceiling by her nails and teeth. Our hearts filled with sympathy and we knew we would only make her more nervous if we tried to comfort her. We left her in peace to settle in.
Since Honey’s arrival, it became clear to the Wild Spirit staff that the best thing for this poor girl would be consistency, gentle care, and a safe, permanent home where she can grow into herself and eventually relax. Although our initial plans were to be a temporary home for Honey, we decided she is with us to stay, especially now that she has found a loving, life-long companion in high-content wolfdog, Crow, who helps to keep her feeling more comfortable in their forever home.
