Additional info:  LM is a sweet, loving, poorly reared and displaced
wolfdog.  He deserves a home that can provide the proper care and
environment for him for the rest of his life.  If that is not possible, I
will have him put down.

Original plea for an adoptive home:

 I'm asking for help with two WDs that I'm fostering.  I do dog rescue and found these two in a deplorable shelter in central NE.  We believe them to be low to mid-content wolf/malamute/husky/shepherd (we think).  They are socialized to humans and larger dogs.  They supposedly were a year old in January.  Both very sweet but the male needs a firm hand.

The female has been very ill with a condition akin to severe acid reflux.
She's been in two vet hospitals, the most recent was the Kansas State
 University teaching hospital.  It's been touch and go for two months with
 Prinny, but (and I hold my breath here) we think we may have found the
 right medical protocol that will save her life and give her a chance at a good
 life with someone that will care for her and her special needs.  Little Man
is healthy, weighing in at about 90 pounds, I believe.  They have never
 been vaccinated and all that's been done for LM is to get rid of any whipworms
 that he may have had.  The first vet found that Prinny had a healthy batch
 of them and treated her.  She is also heartworm free and started on a
 preventive.  We plan on testing LM this Friday.  Then we will move on to
 having him neutered and vacc started as well.
 Princess is here with me since she's been so ill.  LM is boarded at a
 small grooming/boarding kennel.  I simply don't have room for him as I am
fostering a Saint and have four of my own. Little Man and Princess are sweet, loving, poorly reared and displaced wolf dogs.  They deserve caring, forever homes with people who will love and protect them for the rest of their lives. This is the end to which I am committed.
