Man sees ‘free puppy’ sign and takes one home, learns it’s much more than a puppy

When a Tucson, Arizona man saw a sign that said “Free Puppy,” he decided to jump on the opportunity to get a pet for free. The man had wanted to get a puppy for a while, and it seemed like the best moment to do so. So the man knocked on the door where the sign was posted and got himself a puppy that he named Neo.


Right off the bat, Neo seemed a bit different from other dogs. Even as a puppy, Neo would always dig out or jump the fence to go play with the neighbors dogs. And when Neo grew older, his owner got to find out the reason why his dog was so eager to be with other dogs.

“As the owners said, Neo would dig out or jump the fence to play with the neighbors’ dogs,” Cate Salansky of Wolf Connection told The Dodo. “He built a higher fence to help contain him, but Neo chewed through it and continued to escape.


Neo was actually looking for his pack, because believe it or not, Neo is not a dog. He is a dog-wolf. As you can imagine, having a pet that is half wolf can be dangerous, so Neo’s owner decided it would be best for him to live in a place where can be with other wolves.


“I was outside with another staff member,” Maureen O’Nell from the Humane Society of Southern Arizona told The Dodo. “I saw a couple walking a long-legged canine to the front door. It wasn’t his body composition that made me notice, but his behavior. Neo was completely avoidant of human interaction. The couple walking him seemed, as best as I can describe it, perplexed.”

No ow Neo has finally found his pack. More about his happy ending story, below!
