In the Spring of 2014 we were called about a litter of wolfdog puppies needing a home. Their mother had become so ill she could no longer nurse the litter and the backyard breeder did not want to be bothered with bottle feeding the puppies. They were scheduled for euthanasia that afternoon if we refused to take them.
They all came to Indigo Mountain with an an upper respiratory infection and quite debilitated. For the first 3 weeks with us the entire "wuppie" pack were on heavy medication and we weren't sure they would all come through the illness. Over time they began to rebound, grow and become strong healthy puppies. Mangas was named after the Apache warrior Mangas Coloradas, but he is far from exhibiting a warrior-like attitude. Mangas is a big, sweet boy who is much shier and more reserved than the rest of the pack. As they all matured and were separated into pairs Mangas moved in with Gray Cloud who just dotes on him.
