The little ones were cared for and hand-fed by the shelter staff so that they had the nutrients they needed to grow.
Meanwhile, shelter staff were looking for permanent homes so that the little ones would have a better chance of surviving their new lives and growing up without problems.
However, things were not so easy, since they were born in a refuge, they did not know how to live in the middle of nature. Fortunately, Alida appeared, a Russian woman who decided to take Kira in to give her all the care she needed and a forever home.
Alida told Bored Panda:
I took her out of daycare when she was 28 days old. She’s smart but very stubborn. When she makes decisions, she focuses on herself, not me. From the start, I started the process of their socialization. I saw many dogs, people and children.
The only way to give Kira another chance was to train her to be a pet, and Alida was ready to take care of her.
His socialization process was an important part of his upbringing, as wolves are generally afraid of new things in their environment.
The woman walked with Kira through different places so she could experience smells, sounds, and get used to a strange environment for her.
It was a very difficult, long and tedious process, but necessary for Kira to be able to live with me in an urban environment and feel comfortable.
In training there were a lot of problems, but all of them were solved over time and little by little the work paid off.
Her domestic personality emerged and she began to socialize with people, she did not respond to aggression from other dogs and tried to be calm. Soon, Kira got used to the modern world and embarked on hundreds of adventures, becoming an incredible and fearless tame wolf.
Kira is now one year old and loved by her family, especially her 7-year-old brother, whom she treats with great love.
People are reacting with curiosity on the street, asking for pictures and asking if it’s safe to live with a wolf, especially since I have a child at home.”
The woman tries to answer questions from passers-by and clarifies that living with Kira is the best thing that could have happened to them. In real life, people act normal towards Kira because she is friendly, but on the internet a lot of people disagree.
For them, having a predatory animal at home is stupid and dangerous, but they don’t really know Kira’s true story.
“We live with it, breaking people’s stereotypes about wolves. Is it difficult to educate such a beast competently? Very. But he knew what he was doing.
After so much work and dedication, Kira is fully domesticated and a normal pet like any other who appreciates her comfort.
The most important thing is that Alida gave him the help he needed so much, and now he can have a family forever.
