Mid content wolfdog
In January, 2003 we became involved in a large scale rescue of a defunct sanctuary in Conroe Texas. A number of the wolfdogs had become gravely ill, and a number of them had perished due to a distemper outbreak.
From what we have learned, Wascin was one of seven pups and their parents taken from a backyard breeder in New Mexico in the spring of 1999 and transferred to the North American Wolf Association (NAWA).
When we came upon her, Wascin was in a cage with her sister Lila Wi. They had suffered from neurologic distemper, but had somehow survived the disease. In 2005 we noticed Wascin was having some difficulties maneuvering around her habitat. Fearing she was suffering affects from the distemper we took her in for tests. The vets diagnosed hereditary glaucoma and we began treating her. When she did not respond well to the treatment the decision was made to remove her eyes to reduce the pain. She has more than made up for her loss of sight with her sense of smell and hearing.
Today, Wascin is doing very well.
