White Fang is born wild, but becomes more dog-like after Grey Beaver domesticates him. He is harsh and shows no affection for his dog, but White Fang still displays loyalty toward him out of respect for his superiority. He grows up fierce and unloved, constantly bullied by other dogs, and becomes a fighting dog after Beauty Smith buys him. He eventually becomes more loving and friendly after he is bought and tamed by Weedon Scott. He saves Judge Scott’s life by killing Jim Hall, and eventually has six cubs with Collie. So White Fang goes through many stages before finally settling down and coming into his own.
