Shelter Finds Home for Wolf Hybrid


A local shelter has found a home for a wolf dog they took ina few months ago.

Kona will soon be headed to a California rescue.

The wolf hybrid was relinquished to the Central NebraskaHumane Society in January.

It's uncertain when Kona will leave because of the permitsrequired to transport wolf hybrids across state lines.

"We know how to operate when dogs and cats aretransferring over state lines. This is a whole different ball game," saidLaurie Dethloff, CNHS executive director.

The shelter had Kona tested to see what percentage of wolf heis.

"We have received a DNA test to help us categorize him,which then will let us be able to transfer him out of Nebraska and intoCalifornia a lot easier," said Dethloff.
