From the Wolf Q&A topic at the top of this page:
What is a wolf pack?

A wolf pack is a cohesive family unit consisting of the adult parents and their offspring of the current year and perhaps the previous year and sometimes two years or more. Wolf parents used to be referred to as the alpha male and alpha female or the alpha pair. These terms have been replaced by "breeding male", "breeding female", and "breeding pair”, or simply "parents". The adult parents are usually unrelated and other unrelated wolves may sometimes join the pack. The acceptance of rogue wolves into the pack is uncommon but possible.
