Jake(YBM031) was born on June 20, 1997 in the Bad Dogs. His mother was Heya and his father was a roving male named Sabota. Jake was born with three litter-mates, a brother YBM030 and two sisters Alyss(YBF032) and YBF033. The pups survived their first few weeks. The Bad Dogs were the largest pack around, so the pups had many protectors, and it also helped that his mother was the alpha female of the pack as well. A few months after Jake was born, some of the other subordinate females had litters. In September, a rouge woulf killed VBF033. Then in February 1998, Alyss disappared leaving Jake with only his brother. In April 1998, there was a group split after an avalanche, Jake followed an older female named Saya away from the pack along with several other members. Jake is still alive today in the Bad Dogs.
