Kanti (male)

April 6, 2012

Kanti was born to Dharma and Wolfgang along with his 5 siblings. He started fussing shortly after being born and we found he was literally a “born complainer”. Called Mama’s Boy as a puppy due to his tendency for whining, Kanti grew into a big bouncy bundle of wolf, who is now completely convinced that he is, and should be, Alpha Wolf.

In the spring of 2013 the main pack was split into two trios. Siblings Kanti, Bicho and Fiona were happy to have a pack all to themselves. Kanti emerged as the dominant male, mostly by insisting he was the dominant male. Despite Kanti’s insistence that all should tremble before him, he and his brother, Bicho, are quite inseparable. They run to the other for comfort, press their hindquarters together when they’re nervous, and jointly tease their sister.

Kanti acts big and brave, but the staff knows otherwise. He was once frightened by Gypsum, the grey fox, who threatened him through the fence. Kanti hid behind Bicho and has never lived down the indignity.

Kanti enjoys meeting new people, even if he can be a little mouthy. He likes to have his legs rubbed and belly scratched. His unique coloration was inherited from his arctic wolf grandmother.
