Before dogs became the family member and best friend to people they are today, they were wolves in the wild eating the food in human' camps.

The gray wolf replied with a somber howl. “I miss him too, but that's no reason to regress to your animal state. Use your words.”, the apprentice said as if he were addressing a child.

The wolves in the story The Law of Life are an allegory of death. KosKoosh’s memory of the moose represents death attacking the elderly. Another example is how wolves came to end KosKoosh’s life after he finally accepts that it does not matter whether or not he fights them. The wolves in these two stories represent death. The law of Life shows this by using the memories of KosKoosh.
Dogs and humans share similar qualities after being domesticated. Domesticated dogs originate from wolves, their ancestor. The Call of the Wild by Jack London is about a dog named Buck who is taken off to the Klondike to be used for a dog sled pack. The narrator throughout the book suggested that Buck would have ultimately rejected civilization and followed his nature. The novel stands on tension being revealed as nature winning rather than civilization, only Thornton is the last tie to that world.

The Ethiopian wolf is known as one of the world’s rarest canids. This particular species of wolf is only found in the areas of Africa, namely Ethiopia which is where their namesake comes from. Occasionally the wolves will band together to hunt young ungulates such as the duiker, mountain reedbuck and mountain nyala but for the most part the Ethiopian wolf is a solitary hunter. They subsist mainly on the abundant rodent population found in the afro-alpine grasslands. Sixteen (16) species of rodent have been documented in the Bale Mountain highlands including the black-clawed brush-furred rat, the vlei rat, Blick’s grass rat and the wolves favorite food, the giant mole-rat.
In dhole packs only one dominate pair in the pack will breed with each other and the rest of the pack will assist in caring for the mother and her pups. The mother is only pregnant for 2 months after that, the very large litter is born and after raised and taught how to hunt and live in the pack life they are members of the pack and all the others depend on them as much as they depended on the others.

’’Never Cry Wolf’’ is Mowat’s most widely known book, written in 1963. It is an autobiographical story about the study of Arctic wolves and his solo mission adventures as a biologist in the Keewatin Barren Lands in northern Manitoba.

Mowat wrote: "We have doomed the wolf not for what it is, but for what we deliberately and mistakenly perceive it to be the mythological epitome of a savage, ruthless killer." As an actor, Charles Martin Smith played the main role in Never Cry Wolf.
