Nantuc's future 'Mate'

..yesterday 22nd of Oct.,was the first real encounter that Nantuc had with a young male wolf ,since she was a was rather unexpected that I first met the owner of this young white timber wolf who's name is 'Kaos'. I was getting gas at my local station when I heard Nantuc whimpering, something I haven't heard in a while, so I looked at her only to see her straining her neck to see what was in the truck on the other side of the pump I was using. So I looked as well...holy! That was the word that came out of my mouth..there was a young male timber wolf peering out of window in the truck opposite the pump. He was bloody beautiful, white with a little darker yellow eyes than Nantuc's. I turned to the owner and asked only one he 'cut'..the answer came back ..NO, not at all..this was the news I was waiting to hear...fantastic! I then introduced myself and my little white lady to the owner, who was just as excited as I was, because he want to stud off his male because the young wolf was 95% high content..father was a pure blood white timber wolf..his mother..was 75% Arctic Wolf/25% husky. Now things were looking up much better than I was hoping for , but the next statement from the owner sent me over the moon...was I willing to breed Nantuc with his male ..Koas....I jumped at that as fast as I we made arrangements to meet on a sat. that was convenient for both of us.

That day came yesterday..and when he brought out Koas out of his truck..boy he was large for being only 10 months old now. His coat had changed from being pure white to a very light rust colour on his sides, black streaks down from his back of the neck to midway to his tail. And he was now getting a mask, with a white patch in the center of his forehead..typical Kananaskis timber wolf. Yet he remain as beautiful as I first saw him..and yes he grew taller as well. While this was going on, I could hear Nantuc once again, so I went in and brought her out to meet this boy. Remember..this is Not neutral ground but Nantuc's domain, which was a good idea because she could have reacted in a violent manner towards this male..quite common when the female is an Alpha. However what took place in the next 30 seconds between them was what I was hoping for...she let him nudge her on the side of the face, then he gave he a quick 'lick' was a kiss which prompted her to kiss back. It appeared right then that she accepted him, whew...thank you very much!

We had decided over the phone that day to take them to a neutral area that was close to me, so they can settle in with each other. And so they did..him trying to dominate her, and of course that wasn't happening to took a fair bit of time for the boy to realize that Nantuc was an alpha, and he had to respect that, if he wanted her to remain none violent. He learned very quick for she started to kiss him more but the critical time hadn't arrived as of yet. They continued to snap at each other, jumping at each other all in play when Nantuc decided to sit down in an upright position...this was her invitation for him to come close..which he did instantly and began to lick her genitals. The union was now accepted by her..this was the fist time she allowed a male whether it was canine or canis to come close to her in this I personally felt relaxed, for I was witness when my Nikita had that happen by the first wolf I introduced to her back on the island and all hell broke loose. Well we started taking pictures of the two of them , which I'll pop in a few shortly, and after a time we both decided to bring them back to my place and arrange for another visit in 2 weeks..with in two months from now Nantuc should be in full heat and if what I had seen , this will be male that will give her, her first pack  of pups..which should be 5-7 the first time.
Here are a few pics of Kaos and Nantuc...
