18. Play Pals
As wolves commonly prey on other animals, Dakotah’s life was in clear danger. But the two animals shared some incredible bond and started playing around as if they were old friends. Stunned, Jans didn’t hesitate to take a few snaps of the weird play date that unfolded in front of his eyes.
17. Meet Romeo
Nick Jans started calling the wolf by an appropriate nickname: Romeo, since the wolf would often come back to play with his dog Dakotah. “He’s like the combined version of the young Arnold Schwarzenegger wrapped up in the young Paul Newman of wolves,” photographer would joke around.
16. Dogs’ Buddy
Romeo wasn’t just friendly to Dakotah, he quickly made a lot of dog friends around the community, breaking all of the wolf-related clichés. He wasn’t angry, vicious or blood-thirsty at all — all he seemingly wanted to do was play and chill.
