Mariah has a howl similar to that of Phoenix (our resident coyote).  Mariah always surveys the days feeding, picks the largest piece of steak, picks it up and heads down the backside of the enclosure to enjoy dinner alone.  Mariah loves Tonk and Callie (the two Native American Dogs) who she shares her habitat with at NEWARC.  Mariah always approaches with her head down and only recently started meeting our staff at the fenceline.


Mariah is a wolf or high content wolfdog depending on who is doing the phenotyping.  Her bold yellow eyes, fur covered eyes, and physical motion suggest recent wolf ancestry now combine that with her behavior and you have a very wolf like resident at NEWARC.
