Wolves aren’t exactly the house pets that we’ve always dreamed of. They’re thought to be vicious, dangerous, and perhaps better off in the wild. While that may be true for some of them, it *is* possible to train them as pets — especially if their lineage isn’t 100% wolf. In fact, many dog breeds are directly related to the wolf, making certain wolf-dogs totally awesome companions. But just because it’s *possible* doesn’t mean that everyone should attempt to keep them. Take, for example, Spruce and Cochise. Spruce and Cochise had owners who couldn’t provide a structured environment for them to thrive in, so they made their way to this wolf sanctuary for a chance at a better life. Spruce is the one with blue eyes and is actually a no content wolf-dog, meaning that she has very little wolf heritage. The grey wolf is Cochise, and he has a bit more wolf heritage than his buddy — but not so much that he’s not a total sweetheart when it comes to humans. As you can see, though, both of these wolf-dogs are incredibly sweet, and just needed the right environment — one that gives them plenty of space to run and play — to be happy. Their reaction when their new caretaker comes to see them is downright adorable.
