Beauty in grey
- Gender: Female
- Birthday: 2. May 2009
- Origin: Tripple D Farm, Montana, USA
- Related to: Geronimo
- In pack with: Geronimo & Wamblee
As cuddly as she can be with the people she knows, she is very reluctant to be petted by unfamiliar human beings. Generous as she is, Lady Yukon will give her paw if she is rewarded for it. Yukon is a good huntress, even at just a few weeks old she successfully hunted mice. She is an extremely agile she-wolf that loves to play with her pack members in the enclosure.
Just like her brother Geronimo, she has a particularly distinctive coat and exceptionally pretty, slanted eyes. Her trademark is the fur tuft on the bridge of her nose, a small spot on which the fur grows in the other direction, which we often call "ridge-nose" (derived from ridgeback).
... with conspecifics
Yukon is an extremely friendly and open-minded wolf and is always ready to play and have fun (sometimes at the expense of another pack member). At the moment she lives with her brother Geronimo and the slightly younger Wamblee. She loves both gentlemen very much and has a "bridging" function, because the two gentlemen are not quite as familiar with each other yet.
... while learning and interacting with us
Yukon is very cooperative, very straightforward and almost always ready to learn something new or participate in tests.
Yukon is always one of the first ones in the morning to press against the fence to ensure she does not miss any pats. If she is particularly happy because of a familiar person or a beloved dog, she often picks up a stick with her mouth and wags it joyfully around the enclosure.
... with strangers and objects
Like her brother Geronimo, Yukon has a more split relationship with strangers. On the one hand, she likes to be left in peace, but on the other hand, she knows she can get food if she does something with them. It's good to see that while she's ready to give paw to a stranger or touch their fist with her nose, she avoids them when visitors try to stroke her.
Strange objects do not scare Yukon, she likes to inspect them and likes to roll in interesting smells.
... in puppy age
Yukon has always been a brave little girl. She drank from the bottle without a problem and was the first of the three younger wolves to start playing. And she sucked on our fingers to fall asleep!
