When the Seekers series was being created, it started as a request from HarperCollins to Victoria Holmes, saying that the team should develop another series about a group of animals, but this time not cats.
HarperCollins first suggested that they write a book about dogs, but Holmes was reluctant to create stories that would be too close to Warriorsand dogs lived in packs, hunted for food, had a strict hierarchy, and guarded their territories, like the cats. In another chat two years later, Holmes said that, though she was "happy to focus on cats and bears right now", she would consider doing a series about dogs.

These gave her lots of material to develop the character of Lucky and his companions. While the earlier series had the preliminary plot written by a single author, a different approach was taken for the Survivors series.

Alpha banishes Lucky, thinking he angered the Sky-Dogs. After escaping some volcanic ashLucky eventually finds Mickey defending his longpaws' abandoned home against other longpaws ragged-looking, ill ones but his house collapses.

At one other point, Lucky discovers some dead band-tailed pigeons that were left near the camp border by, from the smell of it, Twitch, kindly giving his former Pack food, but in secret.
Later, after Lucky has a serious discussion with Bella about her reckless and regretful choice in hiring those foxes to attack the Pack, the Fierce Dog pups' original Pack, Blade ruthlessly in the lead, traps the Wild Pack and takes the pups away, Blade claiming she is their mother even though she is obviously not and is obviously the one who murdered the pups' real mother.

Later, as Red Leaf autumn approaches, to prove his own loyalty to the Wild Pack and show he does not want to go back to being a Lone Dog, Lucky challenges Snap to a second duel for hunter status, but loses. Sweet takes this as evidence that Lucky is indeed now a Pack dog he clearly does not want to be a loner anymore and is happy that he will not leave.
The next morning, Lick returns in the Wild Pack covered with scratches and says that Blade murdered Wiggle and Grunt is staying in her Pack. Hearing this, Alpha allows Lick to stay in the Wild Pack.

While he ponders this, he and Fiery teach Lick how to hunt brush rabbits and mountain cottontails in their Wild Pack's new territory on a Red Leaf day.
While hunting, they tell Lick about how a Naming Ceremony works since she has never had a proper one, with Fiery, in particular, telling about how he got his own Adult Name his Pup Name was Snail because of his taste in snailswhich he still occasionally snacks on.

When returning to the new camp with their catches, Hidden Enemy - Total Confused - Death Romantic Contra Core stops to talk to a patrolling Bella and the two get into a brief feud over betraying each other's trust ever since Lucky was made a spy, though Lick stops the fighting and encourages them to be grateful to still have each other as siblings since Lick herself lost her brothers one dead and the other traitorous.

Squirm names himself Beetle after seeing a beetle crawling nearby while his sister Nose names herself Thorn because she says that will defend the Pack like bush's thorns as they both sit upon the white pelt of an albino rabbit prepared for them by Sunshine now the Pack's Omega, which she actually does not mind. After the ceremony is over and everyone is giving Thorn and Beetle affectionate attention while also howling ritualistically, Lucky thinks he hears the distant howls of dogs not from the Wild Pack.
Soon, Lucky discovers that the unknown pup scent belongs to Grunt, spying on Semasen - :zoviet-france:* - Misfits, Loony Tunes And Squalid Criminals, now called Fang his Pack has even mimicked their dead longpaw masters by maiming his ears to crop them like theirs. From this report, the Wild Pack must move on. As the Pack of 18 trudges Hidden Enemy - Total Confused - Death Romantic Contra Core different regions, they encounter volcanic acid rainand Alpha starts to show signs of uncertainty when deciding which direction to go - he foolishly tries to cover his incompetence up by taking suggestions from other high-ranking packmates, like Sweet or Fiery.
Eventually, they discover a small abandoned longpaw town not much affected by the Big Growl filled with dead longpaws. They spend the night in a food-filled Food House. The next day, while Lucky, Mickey, Bruno, Snap and Fiery go hunting in the forest, they encounter an unorganized Wild Pack of nine dogs that Twitch now three-legged, missing the entire foreleg he broke has joined as the ninth member out of sheer desperation.
This absurd Pack is led by a massive, mentally-crazed male Ku-Gu-Ku - Usko Meriläinen - Ku-Gu-Ku: Electroacoustic Works bull - mastiff mix named Terror, who hurts his own packmates just because he feels like it.
