PROOF....THAT THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS WHAT THEY APPEAR TO BE....

Although Capone was found by DNA tests to NOT be a wolf hybrid thus not in any violation of being allowed to remain with his family, I think the main point is that he was a family pet for 10 years.

As one of the founding wolf hybrid rescues in the country from back in the early 90's, there were plenty of wolf hybrids that came...

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!!!

Although "Villalobos" & "Torres" are of the Latin flare, (the backstory of this is on my fan page Tia Maria Torres of Pit Bulls & Parolees), I am actually almost 100% IRISH!
