Big Boy: Wolfdog Big Boy is Mystery’s companion. He was rescued from an Alaskan roadside attraction where he and other wolfdogs were kept on short chains and exhibited to tourists. (Photo courtesy of St. Francis Wolf Sanctuary).
Duchess is the other pure wolf here. Staff members say she has a special preference for being doted on by her favorite humans. (Photo courtesy of St. Francis Wolf Sanctuary).
A few minutes away from St. Francis is the Texas Wolfdog Project, where many of these animals are waiting to be adopted out. (Photo courtesy of Texas Wolfdog Project).
