The Dholes are a pack of Dholes who lived near the Deccan. Two Hundred of them trie to attack the Seeonee-pack, but are defeated by Mowgli and the wolves. The only surviving Dholes are the ones who stayed in the Deccan.
Won-tolla, an Indian wolf who lives near the Deccan, warns the Seeonee-wolves the Dholes are coming. He doesn't know how many Dholes there are, but he knows there are no cubs among the Dholes. He also tells they have killed his mate and cubs.
