Luke was obtained by a young man who thought that it would be “cool” to have a wolfdog. Unfortunately, this idea is both very common and very wrong! Wolves and wolfdogs have special needs, which most people aren’t able to provide. In Luke’s case, his owner lived in an apartment, and did not have the time, attention, or space required for a wolfdog. Luke wound up in the care of the young man’s father before being rescued by some neighbors. However, Luke eventually escaped from the yard of his new caretakers, and was picked up by BARC (Houston Animal Control). Luke’s two-legged friends, including several caring workers at BARC, worked hard to make sure he was protected and comfortable while the agency arranged for us to adopt him.
Luke joined the SFWS pack in 2007, and settled in very happily with his new home and new friends. Although Luke appears disinterested, he would make a great undercover agent. Even when he seems not to be paying attention, he is aware of everything going on around him. He particularly loves to perch on top of his house and survey his domain.
