Pharaoh was born in the spring of 2009 at Bear Country, a wildlife safari park in South Dakota. She was a Canadian gray wolf who came to Mission: Wolf with seven other puppies. Due to the failing economy, Bear Country had been unable to sell the two litters and was no longer able to care for the growing pups. At nearly four months of age, the pups arrived at Mission: Wolf in a horse trailer.

One of our lead Ambassadors, Magpie, had just come out of a false pregnancy and she and her partner Abe eagerly took the pups in. Just as they all began to settle into life at the refuge, tragedy struck and the pups became ill with parvovirus. Pharaoh was the first of three pups to pass away from the virus; her biological brother, Nikkolah II and her adoptive arctic brother, Cutie Pie both passed from parvo shortly after.
