As Gaya Dihi

    Mid Content wolfdog

    In January, 2003 we became involved in a large scale rescue of a defunct sanctuary in Conroe Texas.  A number of the wolfdogs had become gravely ill, and a number of them had perished due to a distemper outbreak. 

    From what we have learned, Lila Wi was one of seven pups and their parents taken from a backyard breeder in New Mexico in the spring of 1999 and transferred to by the North American Wolf Association (NAWA). 

    When we came upon Dihi at NAWA in 2003 he was cowering in the corner of an 8x10 cage with his mother, Ahyoka. We are told As Gaya Dihi is a Cherokee word for mankiller. This name was given to him in honor of Cherokee Chief Wilma Mankiller to show courage and strength. He has certainly showed a lot of that over the years.

    Today, Dihi is the proud alpha standing tall to protect Ahyoka.  Each day he shows more trust in his keepers. One day we hope he will learn to trust humans again..
