Dadyoe, whose name in Iroquois means “the wolf that travels around the earth,” is a wolf–dog that Stephanie adopted from a shelter in Albuquerque. Prior to his coming to live at Wanagi, Dadyoe was initially adopted by a family that was unable to manage his behaviors.
Milagro, whose name means “miracle” in Spanish, was rescued just hours before he was to receive “the needle of death.” A canine/wolf mix, Milagro is fully socialized and, like Bindi, is allowed to roam about the Wanagi grounds (both outside and inside the house). He has been living at Wanagi for just over a year, and is estimated to be almost three years old. He is possibly available for adoption to the right home.
Hokshila, whose name means “a young man who has proven himself” (in the Lakota language) truly lives up to his name. He is Wanagi’s wolf ambassador, and as such, participates in all public events. At nearly 11 years of age, Hokshila is a magnificent male timber wolf that stands more than six feet tall on his hind legs.
Hozho is a 12-year-old pure-bred Australian Shepherd, and as such, is the only purebred domesticated dog on the property. Her Navajo (Diné) name means “to walk in boundless joy.” According to Kaylan, Hozho has one of the most important jobs at Wanagi: to keep all the other animals in line.

We have doomed the wolf not for what it is, but for what we deliberately and mistakenly perceive it to be –the mythologized epitome of a savage ruthless killer – which is, in reality, no more than a reflected image of ourself.–Farley Mowat, Author, "Never Cry Wolf"
The wolf is neither man's competitor nor his enemy. He is a fellow creature with whom the earth must be shared.–L. David Mech, Scientist and Wolf Expert
