Blade was rescued from a roadside attraction in Alaska. Many years ago, Blade performed in a movie called “Into the Wild” with Sean Penn. But like most animal actors, when he wasn’t in a movie, he was of little use to his owner. Blade spent the next 15 years of his life living on a six foot chain and being fed dog biscuits for a $5 entry fee at this roadside attraction. Blade is a black-phase wolf, meaning he was born black, remained black, and slowly turned gray over the duration of his life. Blade is now more gray than black, and is one of the oldest residents at LARC. Blade just turned 20 years old this April.
