Wolf Fest 2016 Photographs - Forest WSWS
The star of Wolf Fest 2016 was of course the Wolf "Forest". biography provided by Wild Sprit Wolf Sanctuary, Layton Cougar. Note that Forest is now 10 years old. But the information still applies.
Forest is a high-content wolf-dog. His mother was a Timber wolf mix and his father was an Arctic wolf mix. He has four siblings living at the Sanctuary: Dakota, Sassy, Brutus, and Savannah......
Personality: Forest is by far the most social of the eleven yearlings, and has proven thus far to be a fantastic ambassador. He loves to say hi to everyone and give kisses - sometimes with a little bit of teeth! He is so use to the spotlight, that he gets jealous when other animals around him get attention. He has a mischievous side, though, and will not hesitate to be naughty.
Likes: Coffee, men with beards for him to chew on, and playing with other animals (from dogs to cats to goats and of course, humans!)
Dislikes: Heights, rides in the van, and baths.
Fun Fact: After a long and strenuous process, we came up with names for all the pups...except for Forest. We kept trying new names, but nothing really fit. One day, while Angel was sitting in the courtyard babysitting the puppies that were playing in the grass, a little boy from one of the tours came up and began talking to her. After telling her all the wolf facts he knew, he asked Angel for her name. Angel replied, and asked for the boy's name. It was Forrest. He left, and the boy and his name left such an impression in Angel's head that she named the last pup Forest.
