NAPLES, Fla. — A photo of a giant wolf-dog is going viral after a volunteer at Shy Wolf Sanctuary in Naples shared the photo recently.

"Yuki" is 87.5% Gray Wolf, 8.6% Siberian Husky, and 3.9% German Shepherd and he was taken to a kill shelter by his owner after he got too big to handle.

Luckily, the 12-year-old wolf was rescued by Shy Wolf Sanctuary in Naples where he will stay from now on and be taken care of. He will not be put up for adoption, but you can help with his vet bills by sponsoring him through the Sanctuary's website.

The photo that went viral was posted by volunteer Brittany Allen. She says the photo is not photo-shopped.
