Red wolf pup
This adorable red wolf pup, pictured last summer, looks like she could be playing in the backyard with your dog, right? Red wolves, of course, are canine cousins of our domesticated pooches. This pup and her family live at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, where they are a critical part of conservation efforts for this species.
This pup and her siblings are now as big as their parents, but you can still read about what they were like as pups and learn how fast they grew. You can also find out how to help this critically endangered species survive.
