My neighbors have a (possible) wolf dog. They have become involved in drugs over the past few years, lost their mobile home, were living in a camper. more than two months ago, they moved the camper and have not been seen since. I am trying to find where she is now.
my other neighbor called about a week ago, and said she saw the dog wandering around the woods on the property. Very rural area. I saw the dog this morning. Very thin, I fed her, she is skittish, and was growling, but happily ate, wouldn't come closer than 6 feet or so.
we don't have animal control in the county, a deputy will shoot her, and the humane society will not take in possibly aggressive animals and is full.

I am going to get pictures of her to see if she is part wolf, to best guess anyway. I know of wolf park, are there any other rescues that I can contact?

There should be organizations/rescues that will take a wolf dog in and in your area too. If you do end up taking the wolf dog to a shelter, make sure it's a no-kill one (but you probably know that). That's sad about what's happened to her and her owners. Thankfully though, there are caring people in this world like you out there.

I don't know where you live, but I found this: http://www.wolf-to-wolfdog.org/rescue.htm
Maybe these could help: http://wildspiritwolfsanctuary.org/
http://www.texasblessings.com/WOLF_DOG_RESCUE.html
http://nevercrywolfrescue.org/

I hope those helped. I went through each one and they seem wiling to take/rescue a wolf dog in need. Good luck to you.

I'd say take a picture and show to the wolfdog experts here first, before taking "special measures".

It's amazing the amount of people who tells you their dog is part wolf (and automatically assume mine also is, which is not the case). I fought laughter at the latest incident earlier this week. Clearly a tiny little husky mix. Owner was all proud to let me know she was 50% wolf.

I live in a very small town. About 200 of population and I'd estimate about 20 dogs? Out of those 20, 3 have owners arguing they are wolfdogs. None of them are.

I'll try to get Cindy and the other woofer folk on the thread, they may be able to help you to win her trust and give you tips on handleingher until you can get her to a santuary (be it wolf or dog) as well as identifying for certain whether or not she has any real content.
