Kira is a wolf. She was abandoned by her mother when she was 3 days old and couldn’t survive in the wild because of that.

Thankfully, a Russian woman named Alida decided to take her in, raise her, and train her so she could have another chance in life. Alida had to work hard to domesticate Kira. Wolves are scared of new things, so a lot of socialization was needed. Kira met with grownups, kids, and other animals. She went to all sorts of places and now she’s a fully domesticated wolf that wouldn’t hurt anyone.

“Kira’s mom used to live with a family, but they didn’t manage to take care of her and she ended up in a nursery. She no longer trusts people. Kira was born in the same nursery.

If released into the wild, there’s a high probability she will die since no one taught her to hunt. Kira’s mother abandoned her babies when they were 3 days old and in the nursery, so they were fed by hand. And I took her away as soon as Kira got stronger and also first fed her with milk.”

“I took her from the nursery when she was 28 days old. She is smart but very stubborn. When making decisions, she focuses on herself, not me. From the very beginning, I began the process of her socialization. She saw a huge number of dogs, people, and children. We walked in different places so that she could study different smells, hear new sounds. Wolves have an innate neophobia, a fear of everything new. This is a very difficult process, long and tedious, but it is necessary so that Kira can live with me in an urban environment and feel comfortable.”

“Upbringing, too, had its problems, but with age, it all goes away and the work bears fruit—Kira has a stable and mild psyche, does not react to aggression from other dogs, and does not provoke conflicts herself. She treats children very carefully and if the child is afraid of her, she doesn’t approach him.”
