In Zacherevye, Russia lives a family, the Selekhs.  Oleg, the father, took in a pack of wild wolves in 2009, raised them as their family pets, domesticating the wolves along the way.

Over the years, the wild wolves have adjusted pretty well at living with their Human companions.  How well? Well, Oleg’s daughter Alisa Selekh is allowed to treat these animals like dogs, petting them, playing with them, and even getting close enough to receive an affectionate lick from these animals.
