Yuki The Giant Wolf Dog | BEAST BUDDIES


Brittany: You probably would attack someone if given the right circumstance. Yuki is a high content wolf dog. He is about 87.5% grey wolf. I was nervous the first time going in with Yuki. Yuki can be dangerous. I believe it’s either five or less volunteers that we have that can actually interact with Yuki. Come here. I was able to start working with him and understanding him, and he obviously allowed me to share space with him. Yuki’s 12 years old, around 120 pounds. he’s very tall, which is a normal wolf trait. Good boy. Yuki has a fairly similar story to most of our animals that we have at the sanctuary. So someone had obtained him in some way as a puppy. And they realized pretty quickly that he exhibits more wolf like behaviour versus dog like behaviour. He ended up at a shelter, which basically wolf dogs, or any dog that appears to be Wolfie they are put first to be euthanized. So we were alerted and we stepped in and he’s been with us ever since. This is just an example of what he normally eats. He eats a raw diet. so he gets chicken and pork. Sometimes he gets ground beef. They pretty much just annihilate this and you don’t want your fingers anywhere near a wolf’s mouth when you’re feeding it. Good boy. People have compared Yuki to the direwolves from Game of Thrones. I’m really happy that Yuki’s picture went viral. because people can see him, and people can just admire him for what he is. So this one is actually where I caught him mid-yawn. He’s pretty relaxed with people taking his picture. But it looks pretty ferocious. Jeremy: Yuki is our most successful animal in sense of fame, for sure. A Shywolf sanctuary is an exotic animal sanctuary. We mainly rescue animals that were bred to be pets. And ended up unwanted or abandoned for multitude of reasons. That’s amazing isn’t he? Look at those eyes. Hey, buddy. So Cimarron. We refer to him as a Florida Panther because he was born and bred here in Florida. But really, if you genetically tested him, he would probably DNA test as a North American mountain lion. This guy is the biggest cat in the world that can still Purr. So we do not interact directly with Cimarron. He’s the one animal we have here where you don’t. He was played with rough, and he doesn’t know how to treat a human being without injuring us. Tim: Jasper came to us actually as a wolf dog. Somebody took advantage of and he came back 100% Grey wolf. So that’s just an example of an animal being bought and sold as a wolf do, and actually turned out being a full blooded wolf. Just one of the reasons why we wound up with him. The difficulty that the owner had taking care of him If you hang back over here, there’s a chance that he’ll come up to me with you in here. But he may just end up pacing. He’s scared. Come here Jasper, come here buddy. It’s okay. Come here buddy It’s okay. Are you going to howl for us? Jeremy: It’s really exciting when we do get an opportunity to rescue a young animal. We took in two cubs today, they’re 14 weeks each. Their names are Samson and Sierra. And they are wolf dogs. This is our volunteer’s first opportunity to interact with them. Deanna: The lady who brought them down. She had some medical issues that, prevented her from getting the animals. Jeremy: Do you see those back feet? Right now, you would think that they that would indicate that these are going to be fairly large animals. I’m seeing a lot of wolfiness in the in the huge oversized paws. But I’m seeing a lot of German shepherd like stuff in the ears. You see how the ears are really oversized. They’re pointy on the top. We’ve got a couple of other animals here like that. Brittany: A year ago now, the sanctuary found out that Yuki had cancer. We don’t really know the expectancy of what could come out of Yuki’s illness. But so far, Yuki has just been in such high spirits. He’s not showing any signs of pain. He’s an awesome animal. He’s amazing. He had a rough start, someone abandoned him. I’m so glad that Shywolf, was able to step in and give him a home where he can just have so much affection and so much love given to him. Jeremy: As far as our future goes, we are trying to get to a larger property and build this a state of the art facility. Right now. We’ve been surviving on two and a half acres of land for almost 30 years. If I have 20 times the space I have now. Then I have 20 times the Yukis that I can rescue. And that’s what we’re here to do.

  1. I moved to Florida a few months ago. Can anyone tell me how long it takes before "Crazy" sets in, or was I already proven crazy by moving here?

    PS, I brought my Wolfdog with me when I moved down here.

  2. Such a cool dog. I hope you guys keep doing what you're doing and you get to build that larger facility you want to build.

  3. I’m from Florida and I like how everyone from Florida is crazy even tho it’s illegal to own wild animals and some other states like Texas and Pennsylvania allow u to own wild animals without permits 😂😂😂

  4. Please stop calling him Yukai.
    The name Yuki uses the characters ゆ (yu) and き(ki -pronounced like key)

    His name should be pronounced like (you-key)

    It's a Japanese name that means snow and can be used for both male and female.

  5. My brother found a coyote/shepherd pup 10 years ago and he's been living a happy life. He's small, smart, and very defensive.

  6. I'm a natural with critters, some are just raised to be mean, one German Shepard sniffed me and I immediately backed off, seen him freeze up, he was behind a fence, some people like them mean for protection, or maybe I smelled bad.

  7. Then a friend has a giant wolf that loves me, I feed him pig ears to though, supposed to chew on them, he just eats the whole thing, in winter he weighs up to 180, he comes up to my waist he is massive.

  8. I want to watch this video but goddamn every time she mispronounced "Yuki" which should be derived from Japanese and means "Snow" to "Yukai" I just want to close the tab.

  9. Keeping a wolf in that kind of heat is ridiculously cruel. Florida isn't just hot, it's extremely humid. Grey Wolves are used to a DRY, COLDER climate.

  10. This beautiful beast is so freaking huge… The 1st pic astonished me… I didn't even know that wolves could be so big, I mean I believed they were smaller…

  11. Please contact me for A Tennessee wolf mix. His name is Ganon. He is almost 3. Very loyal obviously. I grandmom dog. My number is 805-458-7442.

  12. How can you claim wolf content percentage? That's impossible. The only way to know percentage is if you breed a dog, with a full blooded wolf. Because it's obviously going to be 50/50. No matter if the the wolf born looks more like a dog and acts like a wolf or vice versa, it wouldn't make a difference in percentage. Knowing you have a high content would require that half wolf, half dog to be bred with another full blooded wolf. Coming out with a 75% wolf dog. After you start back crossing there is no way to calculate the exact percentage. I'm not doubting Yuki is high content, but you cant claim 87%.

  13. Naming their dog "Yuki" and pronouncing it "Yukai"… These are usually the same type of boring people who name their kid "Gerald" and expect people to pronounce it something along the lines of "Jerr-Rah'ld" or "Ger-ral'D". It's unfortunate we'll never know if they're ultimately misspelling, mispronouncing, or just straight up getting a laugh out of bating people into angry debates on the internet.

  14. I saw his picture on Facebook and I shared because this yoki is so strange for me at 87% of wolf but this girl care for him I don’t know I’m so Inlove with animals but literally I don’t encounter a wolf dog I hope someday I can saw them ❤️

  15. Only people in the states could try to make something special out of having a wolf, in Canada a lot of dudes run them on their sleds, breed them with the other sled dogs too

  16. Il est magnifique ce chien Loup 👍💕💕💕🐺🐺🐺et il a des gens extraordinaires qui s occupent de lui c le principal^^

  17. My Akita is larger than that wolf dog and that’s saying something and he’s larger width wide. It’s crazy for me to let that sink in 😂

  18. I sure as hell hope they feed him more than just raw chicken legs/wings/ground beef. All the good nutrients they need are in things like the Kidney, livers, heart and other organs. Feeding just raw regular cuts like that won't give an animal on a raw diet the proper nutrients without additional additives.

  19. I just can't believe how many stupid people out there could possibly think that this creature could be considered a "pet."
