Question about when wolves breed

If a pair of wolves were to mate and have puppies, when would they be able to/ when will they usually breed again?

Awesome! Thanks very much for helping me out, King ^^.king1-7 wrote:Female wolves only go into estrus once a year, so at maximum, a pair of wolves would be able to breed yearly, sometime from February to March. However, whether or not wolves decide to breed depends on the current environmental conditions. If food is scarce, the breeding pair may not mate during that year because there wouldn't be enough food to support a bigger pack. Likewise, if there's an abundance of food, the pack may produce more than one litter.
