Numerous animals are kept as pets by people, ranging from the common cats and dogs to the incredibly unusual snakes and, very seldom, wolves like Kira. The news item for today will focus on Kira, a rare pet.
When Kira’s mother abandoned the tiny black and white wolf pup, it was only 3 days old. When Alida, the rescuer, found the little cub, she was trying to survive on her own.
Little Kira was reared and taught by Alida, who held the cub in her arms, to be just like a dog, in order to give her a second shot at life.
Wolves can be trained with a lot of work and knowledge, despite not having been domesticated for years like dogs and other pets.
Alida had to exert extra effort with Kira since the little girl found everything around her to be intriguing and novel. Kira had been socialized by Alida to the best of her ability, meeting children, adults, and even other animals.
Kira won’t harm a single fly anymore because to her extensive training in domestication.
“Kira’s mother formerly resided with a family, but they were unable to care for her, and she eventually wound up in a nursery.
She has lost faith in humans. The same nursery saw the birth of Kira.
“Since no one trained her to hunt, there is a strong likelihood that she will perish if left in the wild. When Kira’s mother left her infants in the nursery at 3 days old, they had to be fed by hand. As soon as Kira was stronger, I whisked her away and gave her milk as a starter.
When she was 28 days old, I picked her up from the nursery. She is intelligent yet quite unyielding. She puts herself first while making choices, not me. I started the socializing process for her right away. She observed a sizable quantity of pets, people, and kids.
“We took varied routes so she could investigate various scents and sounds. Neophobia, or the fear of everything new, is an ingrained trait in wolves. Although it is a challenging, drawn-out process, Kira has to live with me in an urban setting in order for her to feel comfortable.
After removing Kira from the nursery at the age of 28 days, Alida continued to take care of her needs for food, instruction, and domestication.
“Upbringing, too, has its issues, but with time, everything fades away and the effort pays off; Kira has a calm and stable personality, doesn’t react to hostility from other dogs, and doesn’t start fights on her own. She is extremely kind with youngsters, and she avoids them if they are terrified of her.
To make sure Kira wouldn’t be afraid of the contemporary world, Alida took her on several travels.
When there is a youngster at home (I have a 7-year-old son named Bogdan), people tend to respond on the street with interest, want to be photographed, and/or inquire as to whether it is unsafe to live with a wolf.
Even Alida finds it difficult to tell Kira from from other dogs at this point. Kira is currently a contented, completely domesticated dog living with a human family and a human sibling who is 7 years old.
The most common questions Alida receives from onlookers concern her experience with living with wolves and how to adopt one.
“Others respond pretty naturally in real life since Kira is quite amiable and doesn’t incite dread in people. However, people are both furious and foolish online, and they post various things. There were several allegations that I was doing extremely foolishly since I kept a dangerous animal at home, especially after several stories about us.
