Quick Bio

Stigma arrived at the sanctuary in December of 2020 from Indiana. She was brought home with another wolfdog, Mika, on the same trip.

Personality

The Wild Spirit Team is still getting to know Stigma who is currently quite shy around humans, but she has shown a strong interest in interacting with the animals that live next door to her, especially low-content wolfdog Kenai who we hope may be a future companion!

Stigma has also shown a growing confidence around various members of the team and will approach the fence line to say hello (especially for a treat), and she loves to sniff any areas that people have been inside her enclosure while cleaning.

Relationships

Stigma now shares an enclosure with low-content wolfdog, Kenai. The two lived in neighboring enclosures for a few weeks, and were finally introduced to each other on New Year’s Day, 2021. At this first meeting, Stigma was super excited about Kenai, though he was busy checking out a different habitat.

Fun Facts

Stigma is affectionately known as “Bean Blossom.” This nickname was assigned by team members Brittany and Molly moments after she was loaded into the transport van, and it was repeated the entire drive home. Needless to say, it stuck.

Sponsorship Details

Stigma has 16 sponsors!

Likes & Dislikes

Stigma is a big fan of her next-door neighbor, low-content wolfdog Kenai who she loves to play with along the fence line. The two can often be seen flirting with Kenai’s big bushy tail raised up high!

Stigma is a bit shy and as such is not a huge fan of people, especially in large groups.

Stigma‘s History

Stigma was originally owned by a well-known wolfdog breeder in Indiana along with nearly 20 other animals. However, due to personal reasons, her owner decided to move to a different state in which wolfdog ownership is illegal. As a result, she was forced to find new homes for all of her animals. While many of her collection were highly sought-out due to their unique coloration or other desirable traits, some of the older or less social animals were unwanted.

      Oh how wonderful! I have one of Stigma’s boys (black phase named Creed) from her 2019 litter! Absolutely wonderful temperament!
      So happy she found a great home!
