Ambassador Wolves

Oakley is the alpha of the Alaska 9 pack that came to Wolfwood during July of 2011 as 9-week old pups.

The pack members were confiscated from a breeder and were going to put down if a home was not found for them quickly.  The Alaska Attorney General contacted Wolfwood and all the puppies were flown to Wolfwood from Alaska.

Oakley is a large wolf. He is over 120 lbs and is almost 7 feet tall when he stands up on his hinds legs. Despite his size, he is quite gentle with people.  He likes to be petted and loves to lean into people.  At indoor events, Oakley will stay outside since he doesn't like to go into areas with roofs.

Ra and Tala:
Ra (on the right) and Tala are two wolves that we rescued from Alaska as older pups. They were bred with the intention of being sold.  However, Ra had an underbite and Tala had a weak immune system which deterred people from wanting to purchase them. Consequently, they remained chained up on 2 foot leashes past their early puppy stage until they came to us. Ra originally had all black fur.  He got his name because "RA!" was all he said when he first came to us. Tala is his sister, and she originally had all brown fur.
