This is Nikita, a resident of Mt. Baldy in Southern California. Nikita is 75% WOLF and cost her owner quite a bit of money. She’s only about 5 or 6 months old and weighs in at 100 pounds (about 45 kg) already. She is shy, but as soon as she realizes just how big and powerful she is, she’ll be one of the Top Dogs here on the mountain.
She loves getting doggie biscuits from Uncle Rono, and visits every morning to obtain them.
She’s a real sweetheart, and as you can see, she’s absolutely beautiful! She is often mistaken for a coyote when she is seen by tourists, and she really looks like one when she emerges from the pool! But she’s twice the size!
This photo is part of a series I am calling Dogs of Baldy. I am planning a book . . .
