The average gray or red wolf pup litter will have four to six pups. It’s a good sized family, so it typically takes a whole pack to raise the children. The pack, after all, is meant to help raise the children. When the children are grown, they then leave the pack to start their own packs. The cycle then begins all over again with new pups.

There are typically many females in a pack, so there are a lot of pups running around all at the same time. That said, sometimes the litters have more than six or fewer than four pups in them. It all depends on the female, the male, and how successfully they breed. If the breeding isn’t successful, then there are no pups.
