Animal Sanctuary Saves Giant Wolfdog Who Was Abandoned at a Kill Shelter

By Mustafa Gatollari

A story about a wolfdog that's so enormous it appears to be photoshopped is going viral.

There's something about stories involving mixed breed dogs with a touch of wild in them that speak to us on a personal level. I think a lot of it has to do with stories like Call of the Wild and Kavik the Wolf Dog, but it could also possibly go much deeper than that.

Humans have been successfully domesticating wild dogs for quite some time now, so as a species we must feel some kind of special pride whenever we can manage to live in peace and/or "tame? a creature that could care less about seeking our favor.

"Wolfdogs" definitely fall into that category. Mixing the tough, ruthless, and stalwart pack animals with more human-friendly breeds yields impressive and often scary results.

Millions of years of evolution have turned wolves into absolute killers, so whenever someone takes one as a pet, even a half-breed, there's always the danger of that dog "turning" on you.

Which might've been the reason that someone went through all the trouble of becoming the owner of their very own wolf-dog, only to turn it into a kill shelter.

That's what happened to Yuki here.
