Everyone knows that dogs are man’s best friend. But the wolf Wiley liked its owner Gladys so much that he seemed to have cried at her grave, the adorable wolf lying on the headstone, swaying and making noises like sobs as the whole family gathered around uncle.
This is a true example of how deeply a dog’s emotions are contagious towards their owners. The wolf Wiley was so devoted to her late owner – Gladys, that it was hard for him to understand that she was dead.
A family member is reaching out to comfort the crying Wiley and says, “We miss her too” as she comforts the dog.
Wiley is one of the coyotes that specializes in treating veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder after they return from battle. LARC’s website describes Gladys as “a member of the family, and supporter” of the shelter. Military coyotes rehabilitate and care for veterans through LARC, the Lockwood Animal Rescue Center, which specializes in the care of wolves and horses.
Provide an explanation to assuage any concerns about Wiley’s health. ” I’m not a vet so can’t say if he sneezes backwards like some of you are saying. I can tell you he’s never done it before and hasn’t done it”.
“I may be anthropomorphizing his actions since then, but that’s how I choose to deal with the loss…Also, for those who say he’s dying, I promise he is. won’t. We have a vet working at the sanctuary and Wiley is fine”.
The Hᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴏᴋᴇɴ dog Wiley couldn’t stand the loss of her owner. He sobbed over the grave of not being able to face that fact and this is a true example of a dog’s loyalty to humans!
