The wolves in this film are really coywolves which are a wolf-coyote hybrid. Regular wolves that inhabit northwestern American states (including Alaska), northern portions of the Great Lakes region and Canada are gray/grey and white while coyotes have brown, tan, gray/grey and white fur. Coyotes that are partially wolves inhabit northeastern American states and eastern Canada.
The dog that plays the adult version of Bella is named Shelby and she was a rescue dog. She was found living in a junkyard in Tennessee.
Despite the title and having the same book author, this will not be a sequel to A Dog's Purpose (2017). However, Universal Pictures is planning to release a sequel to that film titled A Dog's Journey (2019) scheduled to be released the same year as this film.
