Dakota joined our pack in May 2013.
A grey wolf/Malamute mix, 4-year-old Dakota is completely blind. He came to us from terrible circumstances, where he was at risk for being euthanized. He is not up for adoption due to his special circumstances, and will stay at Runs with Wolves for the rest of his natural life.
Sweet and gentle, he touches his nose on objects to guide himself in his pen. When he leaps up to give hugs and kisses, there is no force or aggression. Only soft paws and friendliness.
His calm personality, combined with his bravery for overcoming tremendous odds, makes Dakota one of our most inspiring animals.
