In July 2021 Shy Wolf Sanctuary was contacted by a detective about an aggravated abuse case they were working on. Because the animal was listed as a wolfdog, the detective wanted him to go to a facility equipped to deal with his inherent nature and any issues, physical or mental, resulting from his early treatment.
Tewa arrived at Shy Wolf at three months old and 12 pounds. He was about 20 pounds underweight for a wolf pup and the DNA shows he is as high as Embark will provide on their testing at 95+% grey wolf.
