Lucifer came to us on April 20, 2024 from Oklahoma. Lucifer was rescued by Jenni at Husky Halfway House (H3) when he was close to being euthanized. The family that raised him had children, and Lucifer had grown very large (he weighs over 100 lbs) and they were afraid he would hurt their children. When they put him outside, he kept escaping. Animal Control kept bringing him back home, but finally decided the family was not able to contain Lucifer, so animal control seized him and were about to euthanize him when H3 stepped in and rescued him from the situation. H3 tried placing him in 2 other homes, but both times he was returned. He was destructive when left inside, as is common for wolf-dogs because they require large spaces, ample exercise and enrichment to provide for their needs. Wolf-dogs typically do not make good pets, and most wolf-dogs do best in a sanctuary setting.


At the time, Star was in need of a compatible mate who was about her age and with similar energy level. We had heard about Lucifer, who was 2 1/2 yrs. old, and contacted Jenni at H3 to let her know we had space for him. the two met in a neutral environment, an enclosure that was new to both of them. This helps to avoid either of them guarding the space as their own. We are monitoring their progress. We have witnessed them chasing each other, howling together, and resting near each other, which are all good signs and make us hopeful that they are forming a strong, lasting bond.


“Lucifer” is commonly thought of as the name of the devil. But in In Roman folklore, Lucifer ("light-bringer" in Latin) was the name of the planet Venus when appearing as the morning star. And Star is his new companion. Lucifer is a much-needed burst of light to the sanctuary!
