Mika
Female Mid-Content Wolfdog
Zeebie
She is 12 years old and her birthday is April 10th, 2012.

She is NOT on the Tour Path.
Mika was originally owned by a well-known wolfdog breeder in Indiana along with nearly 20 other animals. However, due to personal reasons, Mika’s owner decided to move to a different state in which wolfdog ownership was illegal. As a result, she was forced to find new homes for all her animals.

While many of the animals in this person’s collection were highly sought-out due to their unique coloration or other desirable traits, some of the older or less social animals were unwanted, and though Mika’s owner attempted to find private homes for all her animals, Mika garnered no interest as either a breeding animal or a pet, likely as a result of her senior age classification and lack of sociability. As such, Wild Spirit reached out to offer her a home, where we hoped she might be a good match for one of our single males.

During our initial conversations with Mika’s owner, she offered to surrender a young female mid-content wolfdog named Stigma, knowing we had multiple single males in need of companions, and knowing Stigma would also be undesirable due to her shy nature. We agreed to the intake of both females and soon made the trip from New Mexico to Indiana to pick them up and bring them home.

Fortunately, despite being extremely shy with strangers, both animals were very trusting of their owner, making their pickup quick and simple, as their owner simply leashed them up and loaded them into our rescue van, safe and secure for the long drive home.

Today, Mika shares her life with high-content wolfdog Cinder, who has helped her learn to trust one of his own favorite Caretakers, allowing Mika an opportunity to overcome her shy nature on her own terms.
