Yuki is a star on the internet, thousands of netizens share her amazing photos that she posts on Instagram.
According to his DNA tests he is 8.6 Siberian Husky , 3.9 German Shepherd and 87.5 Gray Wolf .
His caregiver Brittany comments: “We rescued him from a very difficult situation. They bought it from a hatchery, but realized it was too big to care for and keep. He was abandoned in a shelter when he was only 8 months old so he could be euthanized. So we came along and provided him with a home, he has been with us ever since . ”
Yuki has a very noble character, each person who knows him gets a big surprise, since he is not an aggressive dog, but you must respect his space, if he is not comfortable with you by his side he will start growling.
