Calypso is Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary’s newest arrival. She was originally kept in an apartment as a “pet” by a man in Oklahoma. When Animal Control discovered her, she was severely malnourished. Two wolfdog rescue organizations took her in, intending to adopt her out to a new family, but quickly discovered that Calypso is not appropriate as a pet!
Calypso has inherited a dog’s boldness around people and a wolf’s wild instincts. The result is that while she acts sweet at times, she is always looking to take advantage of people she views as “weak,” and can switch from sweet to calculating in an instant. She is one of our most dangerous animals, and yet another example of how wolfdogs, even those with lower wolf content, almost never make good pets!
Calypso is still quite young. She’s very goofy and playful, and sweet with other animals, so we hope to find her a companion very soon.
