You wouldn't normally think of wolves as being cuddly, lovable creatures, but they're closely related to dogs and can even act like puppies every now and then!

The professional wolf expert behind YouTube account Sarah and the Wolves has shared a video of her giving belly rubs to Lakomi, a rescued animal living at her sanctuary - but don't think you can just walk up to any old wild creature and give it some behind-the-ear scratches.

They're dangerous, feral, and this one is being handled by an expert. Just because this one is adorable, doesn't mean they'll all act like that!

"Lakomi is an upper-mid content wolfdog who lives in a sanctuary," Sarah wrote on YouTube. "She was found surviving in the wild at 8 months old.

"She took about two months of daily exposure before she would allow physical contact, but once that wall came down she quickly became playful, sweet, loving, and my personal favourite animal in our charge.

"Lakomi is a gorgeous example of the redemptive power of love, and being able to know her is one of the greatest privileges of my life."
