The Wolf Pack is a group of Freedom Fighters that appear in both the Sonic the Hedgehog Saturday morning cartoon (SatAM) and the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series published by Archie Comics. In both continuities, the group operates independently of the Knothole Freedom Fighters, consists primarily of wolves and was originally led by Lupe.
The group first appeared in the SatAM episode "Cry of the Wolf", and was introduced to the Archie continuity in Sonic the Hedgehog #46, "Countdown to Armageddon". "Cry of the Wolf" was itself later adapted into Archie Sonic the Hedgehog #113.

Lupe explains to Sonic, Sally and Antoine that the Wolf Pack lived peacefully in a village until they fled for their lives as Robotnik attacked their people. It is also learned that the Wolf Pack have marks on their bodies as a result of their battles.
The Wolves were once a proud race, honored in their heritage and living only off of what nature provided for them. They lived in an uncharted area called the "Great Unknown" which lay just beyond the Great Canyon. However, shortly after Robotnik's coup of Mobotropolis, their lives were thrust into turmoil as Robotnik ran them off of their native lands, and roboticized their people. Only a handful were left unroboticized, while the rest fought valiantly to free their lands. (StH: #67, #113)
Sally Acorn, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Antoine D'Coolette first encountered the Wolf Pack after they stumbled upon their home. Having received a Freedom Fighter list via King Maximillian Acorn, they sought to unite other Freedom Fighters for their cause. After some rather hilarious moments with Antoine's "curse", the two Freedom Fighter groups worked together and defeated a Waste Pod. Following this, the Wolf Pack Freedom Fighters became valuable allies. (StH: #46, #113)
The Wolf Pack provided support during Operation: EndGame, unaware that one of their members, Drago, had secretly given his allegiance to Dr. Ivo Robotnik; however, his treachery and involvement in the near-death of Princess Sally was eventually uncovered and he was henceforth no longer considered a member of the pack. (StH: #46, #47)
After the death of Dr. Ivo Robotnik, the Wolf Pack sought to return to their former home and search for other surviving wolves. After crossing the Great Canyon, the Wolf Pack came across a destroyed and long abandoned Overlander city. While searching for shelter from a storm, the Pack came across two young Overlander girls, Aerial and Athena. Eventually it was decided by the Pack leader Lupe that both Aerial and Athena would become part of their family. (StH: #67, #68, #69)
Upon returning to the remains of their former city, the Wolf Pack was ambushed by Dr. Eggman's forces. Once in captivity, Sir Charles Hedgehog, once again serving as a Robian lieutenant, revealed to Lupe her roboticized husband Lobo and her children Marcos and Maria. Realizing if she did not comply her husband and children would be dismantled, Lupe allowed herself to be roboticized. However, shortly after the process was complete she managed to barely maintain a level of free will and knocked out the guards and enabled the rest of the Wolf Pack to escape. (SSS: #11)
The Wolf Pack later returned to Knothole where they would be joined by the roboticized Lupe, Lobo and their children after having their free will restored by the Sword of Acorns. The same year the Bem de-roboticized all of the Mobians (except for Bunnie Rabbot and Jules Hedgehog as they would not have survived in purely organic form) and the Pack was finally reunited. (StH: #100, #123)
Later, Lupe and the Wolf Pack were seen running from the massively growing nanite city when A.D.A.M. caused it to grow rapidly. They managed to escape the vicinity before falling victim to the nanites. By this point in time, Lobo, Marcos and Maria had also joined the Wolf Pack. (StH: #152)
