Xavier(VWM048) was born on March 1, 2002 in the Whiskers. His mother was a subordinate female named Popcorn and his father was a Commandos rover named William. Xavier was born with two litter-mates, a sister VWF049 and a brother named Rowan(VWM050). Although he was born to a subordinate female, Xavier and his two siblings were allowed to remain in the group. Soon the pups survived their first few weeks and started foraging with the adults. With no other pups in the group, Xavier and his brother and sister were the main focus of the Whiskers, untill the dominant female Fu Dog in September to three pups. By then Xavier was five months old and could fend for himself. Xavier is still alive today in the Whiskers.
