Adolph Murie bottle-reared a wolf pup as part of his field studies that would be developed into his most famous work, The Wolves of Mt. McKinley (1944).
Murie took a very young bitch pup from a pack’s den. Her eyes weren’t even open when he took her from the den, so when she matured she knew only the world of man and his dogs. She matured into a very friendly creature, who loved to play with both children and dogs.
Wags was such a friendly, playful animal that Murie would describe her as “the most friendly ‘dog’ I have ever known.”
