Meeting Father

These wild dog pups are set to meet their father for the first time since venturing from the den. They swarm him first, greeting him with licks and play bites before they make their way one by one around the pack to meet the other providers and protectors of the pack. With their mother unable to hunt or remain mobile after her birth, her health and that of the pups depend entirely on the ability of her father and the other pack leaders to provide the food and protection needed for survival.
