"The breeder was a former animal control worker and so he trusted her when purchasing Shade, but when looking back, he figured out that Shade's mother was also probably his grandmother," Cate Salansky of Wolf Connection, the wolf and wolf dog sanctuary where Shade eventually ended up, told The Dodo.
When Shade became too much to handle, Hull decided to rehome him with a couple living in Southern California. This couple had owned several wolf dogs before, so Hull thought Shade would fare better with them. But even here, Shade acted out.
After about a year, the couple reached out to Wolf Connection, and asked the sanctuary to take Shade. This turned out being the best solution for everyone.
