Khewa and her brother, Niko, came to Wolf Park in 2017 from Wolf Mountain to be raised alongside the pups born at the park that year. Khewa is easily distinguished from the other pups by her light grey fur, short tail and short muzzle. She darkened and grew into her features as she matured, although she still has the shortest tail and a slight dip to her muzzle.
Khewa quickly became known as the ‘mud puppy’. She loved water, mud, muck and mire. If there was something stinky which could be rolled up, she was sure to find it. She loved to greet her human friends with enthusiastic kisses, usually leaving a trail of muddy paw prints on them.
Heading toward her first birthday, Khewa was still the most uncertain with crowds, and a little nervous of visitors, but also eager to greet as soon as she worked up the bravery. Still closest to her brother Niko, she also developed an affectionate relationship with her foster sister, Sparrow. The staff hopes they’ll stay friends into adulthood.
